    Here at The Next Web, our UK coverage is an important part of what we do. So, in addition to hiring in San Francisco and New York, we’re now looking to recruit a kick-ass tech reporter based in, or within regular commuting distance of, London.

    You’ll need to be a sharp, keen tech writer who loves to break news and takes pride in bringing analysis and depth to a story.

    You need to be incredibly passionate about technology, startups, entrepreneurship and Internet culture. You’ll be keen to immerse yourself in the technology scene – or indeed already be part of it. You’ll enjoy chasing up stories and the people behind them for interviews/comment. You’ll love people, events and developing relationships. You’ll be keen to learn the background to a story, thrive on the details and above all, be passionate about being first to a story.

    What you need to have:
    An unwavering passion for technology, start-ups, entrepreneurship
    A hunger for breaking news.
    The ability to write quickly and confidently.
    Natural attention to detail
    Natural drive to get to a news story first, and the story behind the story.

    Responsibilities:
    Watching out and reporting breaking news stories, anywhere on the planet – but especially in the UK.
    Reviewing startups from across the planet – but particularly within the UK.
    Writing thoughtful discussion posts about the International technology scene; the companies involved, influencers and everything in between.
    Attending events and conferences.
    Interviewing influencers and companies involved in the headline.

    Salary: Negotiable based on experience.
