The Austin Business Journal newsroom is expanding. We're looking for a staff writer to cover economic development in one of the hottest economies in the country. This beat focuses on the suburbs, where the majority of growth is occurring in the region. Examples of storylines on this beat: Tesla building a $1B factory east of Austin, and developers building a huge crystal lagoon in the suburb of Leander that will anchor a new mixed-use project. This suburban reporter may break news about a new hospital or tech company relocation one day, then write about housing affordability in the suburbs the next day. Relationships with elected officials, government staffers, economic development leaders, real estate pros and economists are critical.
