To lead this coverage, Rest of World is looking for a skilled journalist to join us as our China Editor. This editor will help us build and launch our China vertical at the beginning of 2022. We’re looking for someone who is obsessed with China’s tech ecosystem, and can capture the deep, nuanced, and unexpected elements of the country’s tech scene both in China, and how it impacts economies and populations around the world.
The ideal candidate will regularly be able to generate and commission clear-eyed, insightful stories that go beyond the daily headlines. They know the difference between a topic and a story, and have a keen sense of what subject matter will appeal to a global audience. They will manage a team of in-house reporters as well as a pool of contributors in China. They will also work with in-house regional editors to tell stories about the impact of Chinese tech abroad. We’re looking for a well-rounded utility player who combines knowledge of Chinese business and culture with rigorous journalistic standards and a collaborative spirit.
Location for this role is flexible, but should be within the region.
