The Buffalo News

Reporter: Technology and startups
The Buffalo News seeks a reporter to cover technology and startups in Western New York. Buffalo’s tech scene is growing fast – and could have an outsized impact on the region’s economy. The region has made strides to invest in startups with early-stage financing, more venture capital access and the start of a more entrepreneurial culture. But there is a long way to go – and questions about whether there is enough tech talent. This reporter will cover the startup and technology scene, from the growth of the city’s first “unicorn” to the impact of a downtown technology hub created by the region’s biggest bank. Candidates should have significant enterprise reporting experience using sources, public records and data to identify stories and trends, as well as a proven ability to break news, turn around in-depth stories on tight deadlines and juggle the demands of reaching a digital audience. This reporter should have clips that show a knack for explaining why it all matters and providing the bigger context.
