Job Description

San Francisco Examiner is seeking a senior reporter to headline political coverage in the city and region.

The San Francisco Examiner, one of journalism’s most storied brands and SF’s oldest newspaper, is growing! We’re under new ownership, and we’re seizing the opportunity to reinvent the way we approach local news by growing our team from the ground up.

Among other roles, we’re looking for a senior reporter to spearhead political coverage across the city and the region. Where is our governance succeeding and failing? What can we learn from initiatives in other municipalities? How will our leadership fundamentally impact the ways we work and live? In the city responsible for jump-starting the careers of the two most powerful women in the history of U.S. politics, we have a tremendous opportunity to use the Examiner as a driving force for conversations about a local political landscape with national implications. Our senior political reporter will be at the forefront of, and initiate, these conversations.

The ideal candidate thrives in a scrappy environment, is passionate about the future of local news, and believes many of the most fascinating stories of our time originate in San Francisco. We’re looking for an incisive writer with a sharp eye for identifying the zeitgeist and framing it into a compelling narrative. Successful applicants will be nimble, flexible thinkers, and willing to consider unconventional approaches to traditional forms of media in the interest of powerful reporting and deep audience engagement.

San Francisco is facing many challenges, and we believe in using our platform in service of building a better city through storytelling. This is a rare opportunity to think like a startup under the umbrella of a legacy name. As our primary areas of news coverage disproportionately impact women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals, we strongly encourage applicants within these communities.

To apply, please send your resume, cover letter, and your portfolio or relevant examples of clips to jobs@sfexaminer.com.
