Can you balance a mix of job duties, including generating and reporting features, knocking out short news stories, editing, and social media posting? Are you comfortable with tight deadlines, learning a beat, working independently, and cultivating a diverse network of sources? If the answer to all of these questions is a resounding “yes,” you may be a fit for this position.
Qualified and interested candidates should head over to this Vox Media job posting and follow the instructions, including providing a cover letter and a resume. If we like what we see, we’ll follow up quickly. This is a full-time, union position with benefits.
