POLITICO Europe is looking for a Tech reporter to be based in Brussels.

Tech regulation and cybersecurity are among the most pressing challenges facing policymakers and business leaders around the world.

We are looking for an experienced policy reporter to join our team and report on a wide range of topics related to tech, from privacy to data security to the rolling out of 5G and telecoms infrastructure in a context of intensifying rivalry between major powers.

This is a diverse beat that goes from headline news on data breaches to in-depth reporting on EU legislation in the making. 

The successful candidate will have an eye for detail and a track record of rigorous reporting and scoops. He or she should be a team-worker, with a good understanding of how policy is made and a demonstrated ability to develop sources within government agencies, at company level and within lobbying organizations. 

The policy reporter will contribute to our flagship daily newsletter, write short news reports as well as longer features that appeal beyond a core audience. He or she will also be the public face of POLITICO at events and panels on topics that range from cybersecurity to digital rights. 


  • College degree or equivalent
  • At least two years’ newsroom experience
  • Written and verbal fluency in English
  • Fluency in other European languages a strong plus
