Jessica E. Lessin is a journalist and the founder and editor-in-chief of the technology website The Information, a subscription-based news site, known for its in-depth reporting on Silicon Valley and the technology industry.

Lessin began working at the WSJ in 2005, after Graduating Magna Cum Laude from Harvard. During her tenure at the publication, she wrote more than a thousand articles and news stories consistently breaking news about major products, management changes and strategy shifts at Apple, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter and other global technology and telecom companies.

By 2017, the company had expanded the markets it covered, opening offices in Hong Kong.

In addition to growing The Information’s subscriber community and team, Lessin continues to break news about the technology industry regularly and writes The Information’s weekly “The Takeaway” column.
