Job Information

Dow Jones Surveillance and Privacy Reporter in SAN FRANCISCO, California

By selecting “Apply” above, you indicate you have read and acknowledge the Dow Jones Applicant Privacy Notice and Dow Jones Cookie Policy , including data transfers as described in the Policy.

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an accomplished reporter to write about the ways governments and corporations are using new technologies to monitor and track people like never before—for better or worse. From municipal police forces employing facial recognition to monitor criminal activity, to official agencies hunting for terrorist threats on social media, to companies selling smartphone hacks to repressive regimes to track dissidents, advances in surveillance have handed new power to the authorities.

The tools have created dilemmas over safety and privacy, as officials and regular citizens balance the benefits of disrupting crimes and terrorist attacks against the potential for bias or violation of civil liberties.

We're looking for a journalist who can understand and explain the advances in artificial intelligence and other technologies that are driving this change, and who has a proven ability to spot trends and develop compelling story ideas that might not be immediately obvious. The job would focus on the U.S., but involve working closely with colleagues covering related issues around the world. We're looking for a self-starter with a record of high-impact scoops and enterprise projects, and an ability to tell stories across multiple platforms.

You will be part of the Journal's tech bureau. This job can be based in New York or San Francisco.
