The Times has started a job listing for a freelance writer and blogger to cover Uber and other ridesharing services, with an emphasis on technology.
The Times said it is looking for writers and bloggers with a keen interest in social issues and technology, as well as in the intersection of the two.
The Times says it wants to hire writers and writers with a sharp eye for the intersection between the two, a mix of journalism and technology.
The job description is for a “digital reporter with a strong focus on the intersection” of technology and the digital economy.
The paper says it has also been hiring staff writers to cover the technology news.
Uber’s growth has seen the surge in the number of rideshares that have sprung up to cater to the increasingly popular UberX and UberCab service, as the company has struggled to get a foothold in the city.
The ride-hailing service is also facing scrutiny from regulators, which have threatened to take the company to court.
