Business Reporter – Workplace/Retail at The Seattle Times

Posted By David Wilhite

Job Description: The Seattle Times is hiring a reporter to cover workplace issues and the retail sector. The changing nature of work – the gig economy, the threat and promise of automation, the economics and politics of minimum wage and other work conditions, the growing earnings gap between young software engineers and others – these shifts are transforming the job scene in Seattle and elsewhere. Also in the throes of change are the region’s premiere retailers – Nordstrom, Starbucks, Costco, REI – and the landscape where they do business in the era of Amazon and e-commerce. Seattle is a crucible for many of these changes.

Job Qualifications: This reporter will be responsible for breaking news and writing insightful enterprise stories in both areas. The position requires robust writing and reporting skills as well as strong digital storytelling skills, and a track record of producing significant and compelling enterprise reporting about people, companies and the economy.
