The Wall Street Journal is looking for a cyber-focused data journalist to join our investigative team. You will contribute analysis and reporting to enterprise projects and daily coverage and be immersed in short- and long-term stories at one of the largest newsrooms in the world.

Who You Are:
Tracking disinformation and hacking campaigns are second nature to you. You are excited to uncover connections between advanced-threat groups. You salivate at the prospect of untangling a complex web of IP addresses, social media accounts, historical website registrations and malware hashes. You enjoy working on a team and across the broader newsroom. You value accuracy and are very curious.

You Have:

  • Experience with scripting languages, database tools, analytical methods and social media APIs.
  • Some experience with internet architecture, protocols and research tools
  • Experience analyzing malware and other artifacts stemming from cybersecurity incidents is a plus.
