ProPublica Is Hiring (More!) Reporters
We are looking for reporters to join one of America’s most innovative (and, actually, fun) investigative newsrooms. We’re not interested in you covering the news. Your job will be to do enterprising, hard-hitting stories that make news.
We’re looking for someone who:
Has a track record of aggressive reporting and landing revelatory stories about abuses of power
Aches to tell stories that are both important and powerfully told
Really likes working with others. Everybody at ProPublica has their own superpower, whether it’s sourcing, document-diving, data, engagement or design. And we do our best work together.
We know there are great candidates who won’t fit everything we’ve described above, or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.
We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. We’re committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
What you should send us:
The most important part by far is your past work. We’d also ask that you to submit a memo that describes what you’d most want to report on at ProPublica. Lay out a project you think we should do and tell us how you would execute that project. What might specific stories be? How should they be told? How would you imagine achieving impact? Show us how you think.
If all of this sounds exciting to you, apply using this form.
The jobs are full time and include benefits. We are based in New York, but open to remote-working if the fit is right.
The deadline for applications is June 4.
