hi, i’m paris martineau
currently — a reporter on staff at The Information, where i cover amazon (among other subjects). i’ve broken news on amazon’s healthcare ambitions, logistics efforts, safety issues, and more. my investigation into a venture-backed short-term rental startup called domio (which flouted local laws and engaged in questionable business practices) led to the resignation of the co-founders/CEO & CSO, and the dissolution of the company.
i have also written extensively about the human impact of amazon’s rapid expansion in the US. in 2021, i completed an investigation into the deadly toll of amazon’s trucking boom. i also profiled the town of milford massachusetts to unpack what happens when amazon comes to town.
previously — a staff writer for Wired magazine’s business section, where i reported on tech platforms, online influence, and the homesharing industry. before that, i was a staff writer for The Outline, where i covered misinformation and the future. i also used to write about internet culture for New York Magazine’s (now-defunct) tech blog, Select All. during my time at Select All, i broke the story of QAnon (sorry!).
always — looking to speak with current and former amazon employees and contractors. if you work(ed) for amazon, or you know something you think i should be looking into, reach out. i’m more than happy to explain how talking to a reporter on-background works and find a way for us to connect securely in a way that makes you feel comfortable.
