We are looking to hire an independent journalist to join our team. This person will be expected to write and edit content.
The role demands sound journalistic judgment since you will review, select, contextualize, and help write a daily newsletter that reports on the day’s most relevant stories across a number of categories such as world news, US news, business news, etc. You will be part of a team of journalists and educators. Stories are about 200 words in length. As part of this process, you will also write headlines.
We seek balance in all our reporting and seek to present the perspective of all sides.
