From the publisher of POLITICO, Protocol is a new media company focused on the people, power, and politics of the technology industry. Protocol will equip decision-makers and innovators in tech, legacy businesses and public policy with the reporting and insights they need to navigate a world in rapid change.

The ideal candidate will have significant experience producing, directing, and/or editing high-impact investigative stories. You’ll know how to juggle long- and short-term projects, and you’ll be deft at helping investigative reporters work on both long and short time frames.

The ideal candidate will have significant experience in digital journalism – and also a profound curiosity about and commitment to exploring new ways to tell stories and reach audiences. A deep working knowledge of the tech industry would be an advantage, but isn’t essential.

  • Lead a team of writers (staff and freelance) who will produce high-impact, reader-focused journalism that will lead our coverage and drive conversations in the tech industry, the larger business community, and governments around the world.
  • Work closely with the executive editor and editorial director to identify, recruit, hire, train, develop, inspire, and manage other journalists.
  • Serve as a moderator/expert at our events, on podcasts and conference calls, etc.
