Journalism in the Public Interest


Research Editor

ProPublica is looking for a research editor. You will work with reporters across the newsroom to do the kind of deep digging required to put out rigorous, powerful investigations. You’ll be a repository of deep knowledge about public records databases — everything from PACER, to Accurint to a service or platform we haven’t even heard of. Here are more details.

Engagement Reporter

We are hiring an engagement reporter to work on investigative projects in collaboration with traditional reporters throughout the full life-cycle of projects. That means you’ll be involved from the very beginning of story conception to think about what communities and audiences we need to reach and how we reach them, all the way through to story publication and beyond. You’ll help find and reach an audience for the story, and most importantly you’ll be responsible for conceiving and executing a plan to pull our readers into the reporting of the story itself.
