Enterprise Reporter: Semiconductors

The Role:

Protocol is seeking a reporter who can break news and tell original, inside stories about the world of semiconductors.

It's now 56 years since Intel's Gordon Moore coined his eponymous law, and chips have never been more important to the modern economy. Intel is entering a new era, AMD is resurgent and Nvidia is about to close one of the biggest acquisitions in tech history. At the same time, a global shortage of chips has upended supply chains and become a top-line issue for governments around the world.

In this role, you'll explain why chip manufacturing is so important to the future of the economy, track some of the biggest corporations on the planet as they jockey for control of this market and uncover new techniques and companies that will change the way we use computers.

What You'll Need:

We're not looking for reporters to summarize what others have already reported; we're looking for reporters who can consistently break news that other reporters have to follow. Our ideal candidates are smart, well-sourced and have a knack for finding out what's happening and explaining what it means and why it matters to a savvy and knowledgeable audience.

Candidates should be familiar with chip design, manufacturing and performance measurements. We have a strong preference for candidates with 2+ years of writing about these topics.

Location: We prefer candidates in the San Francisco, New York and Washington, D.C. areas but are open to other locations as well.

Apply: To apply, send a cover letter and resume, with Semiconductor Reporter in the subject line, to
