The Wall Street Journal is seeking a seasoned reporter to join our global autos team in Detroit. This is a fast-paced, news-heavy beat with ample opportunity to have impact covering a wide range of topics through the lens of the world’s biggest car companies.
The auto industry is going through immense technological change at this moment, as automakers pivot to electric vehicles and the battery technology that will power them. This shift is creating upheaval at nearly every point in the car business, change that creates opportunities for scoops and deep storytelling.
You should be curious, determined and eager to dominate a highly competitive beat. You should be skilled at sourcing and have a track-record for getting inside companies and delivering exclusives and revelatory work. You will be expected to write stories under tight deadlines, as well as conceptualize enterprise stories and unearth trends that resonate with car buyers, makers, sellers and the average reader.
You should have at least 3-5 years of experience covering a corporate or financial beat. Experience with the subject matter, while preferred, isn’t necessary. You should also be open to different storytelling formats and eager to explore video, podcasts and other visual media as part of your beat coverage.
While you may start remotely, this job will be based in Detroit. You will report to autos editor Christina Rogers and should be comfortable collaborating with other journalists both in the bureau and around the world.
