PublicSource, a nonprofit journalism organization in Pittsburgh, is looking for an experienced storyteller, a person who can spot a great story, investigate a topic, write a powerful narrative and work with a team on the presentation and a distribution strategy. We need a creative thinker who has a track record of developing sources, telling complex stories of different lengths, formats and media and making these stories memorable.
If you are someone who writes with authority, has exceptional news judgment, time management skills and unwavering commitment to mission-driven journalism that makes a difference, please apply.
The ideal candidate is interested in stories that give voice to the voiceless, expose wrongdoing, challenge widely held beliefs and/or take readers to places they have never been before. If you have specific interest in covering environment, health, education, development, energy or any other policy issues, that’s a plus, but not a must.
We are looking for a go-to person who has an open mind, willing and able to adapt to an ever-changing media landscape in a small nonprofit newsroom.
Data proficiency and familiarity with RTK law are preferred. Social media skills are very important.
PublicSource's mission is to listen, to investigate, to reveal the untold stories in the Pittsburgh region. We write stories to explain complex issues in the areas of criminal justice, the environment, money in politics, health and education.
Please send your resume, cover letter with ideas and samples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 1.
