The Logic is hiring a reporter to cover artificial intelligence.
About The Logic:
The Logic is a leading source of business and technology news in Canada, offering subscribers in-depth reporting on the businesses, people and policies that move the country forward.
Founded in 2018, we are backed by the Financial Times, with headquarters in Toronto and bureaus in Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal. The Logic’s award-winning original journalism which includes a suite of newsletters and a slate of in-person and virtual events, reaches hundreds of thousands of Canadians and is syndicated to a global audience of financial professionals. Our subscribers are at the centre of everything we do. We believe Canadian journalism has a bright future.
About the role:
This reporter will cover Canada’s rapidly developing AI sector, including companies, investments, research, people and ideas. They will also report on AI’s impact on business, life and society.
The successful candidate will have a track record of producing high quality journalism, ideally in business, but we welcome applications from journalists who have done first-rate work covering other subjects. They will be an enterprising self-starter, adept at developing sources to help them break news. They will have an interest both in high-stakes boardroom decision-making and in the impact those decisions make on people’s everyday lives. They will be comfortable finding stories in public filings, data sets and access-to-information returns. They will be an excellent writer who takes as much pride in contributing to our daily newsletter as they do in writing news stories and features. They will be an active partner in The Logic’s virtual and in-person live journalism events. And they will be committed to building a collegial, collaborative newsroom that treats all its members with respect.
This is a full-time staff job. This position is based in Toronto, where The Logic offers a hybrid work arrangement.
