Posted May 18, 2023 - Requisition No. 116362
Bloomberg seeks a data journalist who can augment our coverage of artificial intelligence. We aim to hire a reporter who possesses coding skills and can bring a data-driven approach to understanding a transformative technology that’s underpinned by algorithms and computer science.
This person’s role will be part explanatory and part investigative. On one hand, they will help decipher how artificial intelligence works, to whom it applies and the ways in which it could be destructive to the workplace, the economy and civil society. On the other, this reporter would bring novel approaches to testing and vetting products in a way that holds their creators to account—credibly and in a thoroughly documented way. We would ask this reporter to pry open the black boxes underlying artificial intelligence platforms, delve into the vast and expanding body of research surrounding machine learning, neural networks and large language models and explain their business and societal implications in clear terms.
WE'LL TRUST YOU TO:
- Be committed to the idea that journalism can and should hold the powerful to account
- Adhere to the best journalistic practices, sound judgment and a willingness to learn
- Be a team player, willing to collaborate across teams and time zones
- Translate highly technical concepts into writing that is clear, succinct and well organized
- Work quickly under deadline pressure

YOU'LL NEED TO HAVE:
- Experience as a skilled data journalist, with extensive knowledge of a broad range of applications of artificial intelligence
- Proficiency in data analysis tools, such as Python, R or SQL
- Experience with web scraping tools, such as Selenium, Puppeteer or Playwright
- A background training and deploying machine learning models
