The ideal candidate is a dynamic journalist with a proven understanding of the news cycle, journalistic practices and current events. The news room will be focused on both reporting the news and presenting analysis from across the political spectrum on issues ranging from gun control to global warming to immigration. You will be asked to make editorial judgements along these lines during the interview process.

High-level editorial experience is preferred.

We are looking for an insatiable journalist who thrives under the pressure of a 24/7, fast moving newsroom and who understands the challenges and opportunities that come with being part of building a fledgling news operation from the ground up.

Requirements:

- 2 years of experience at respected news organization, including as an editor

- Superb understanding of social media as it relates to content distribution and social growth

- Expert knowledge of Associated Press style

- Deep understanding of current events, politics and world affairs

PLEASE NOTE: One of the primary goals of this new website is to break out of the typical partisan echo chamber that exists on most news sites today.
