The Markup

Reporter: Privacy
At The Markup, we believe that not everything that is “new” is “news” and not everything that is “news” is “new.” Reporters will produce a steady rhythm of articles that aim to illuminate the impact of technology on society, some of which will be originally reported news and many of which will assemble for readers the best available knowledge about an important topic.

Reporters will persistently monitor and uncover the ways that tech affects people. They will produce well-reported, creatively told short- and medium-term enterprise stories, accountability stories and explainers that will be published at least twice a week on the website.

This position will be a beat reporter who will cover the erosion of privacy in just about every aspect of our lives – from facial recognition scans at the airport to the ads tracking you across the Internet, and how some communities that are targeted for surveillance more than others.

This position will report to the News Editor.
