We’re looking for someone who:
Has a track record — as either an editor or reporter — of landing revelatory accountability stories about the levers of power in Washington and their real-world impact.
Aches to report stories that are both important and powerfully told.
Is truly excited about all the possible ways we can do journalism nowadays: from deep data digging to working with readers to marrying narrative and investigative forms.
Really likes working with others. Everybody at ProPublica has their own superpower. And we do our best work together. We’re going to count on you to help make that happen in Washington.
We know there are great candidates who may not fit into what 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. (Here is a breakdown of our staff.) We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
If all of this sounds exciting to you, apply using this form. The deadline is Jan. 27.
The job is full-time and includes benefits. It will be based in our new Washington office.
