GateHouse Media/Wicked Local is looking for dedicated and creative multimedia journalists who are eager to connect with the communities they cover through stories that are relevant, inspiring and hold those in power accountable. We are proud of our innovative environment and put a premium on journalists who are not shy about sharing their ideas and are willing to tell stories on all platforms and in new ways. 

 

Journalism with impact is our mantra and our reason for being. In this job you will work with an editor to produce among other content, at least one enterprise package a week, which will include video, graphics, social media and other digital layers.  

 

At GateHouse Media we work hard to get beyond government meetings to gain a deeper understanding of the issues that are relevant to the lives of the people we cover. We use analytics to understand what interests our readers and go after those stories. With this guidance, multimedia journalists are expected to produce daily content that can take the form of articles, video, photos, web updates or other forms. While we publish newspapers and magazines, we focus on our websites --  especially our mobile websites --  posting content throughout the day.

 

Our goal is to cultivate an environment of diversity to ensure our coverage reflects the communities we cover. The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of social media, and a strong presence on one or two social media platforms. High ethical standards, integrity and accuracy are required. Computer skills are a must including Microsoft Office, Google products and YouTube. Knowledge of Saxotech or experience with a content management system is desirable. A four-year college degree or commensurate experience preferred.

 

GateHouse Media/Wicked Local offers employees the opportunity to grow as journalists. We operate 100 plus well-established and trusted weekly and daily newspapers and 160 hyperlocal wickedlocal.com websites throughout the Eastern Massachusetts.

 

To apply, submit a cover letter, resume and 2 clippings via e-mail to: wickedlocaljobs@wickedlocal.com

 

We offer Health, Dental, Vision, Flexible Spending Accounts, Life Insurance and 401(k).
