Description:

Prowess Consulting
Job Title:  News Reporter
Location:  Redmond, WA

Do you have a passion for finding and telling stories about new technologies and the people behind them? Do you laugh in the face of daily writing deadlines? Can you easily navigate the waters between journalistic storytelling and corporate communications goals?

We have an immediate need for an experienced online News Reporter to join our team, which specializes in coverage of client-specific news and activities, both in the Puget Sound area and worldwide. This full-time employee role will tell our client’s stories via feature articles and multimedia.

We’re looking for a versatile writer who will feel just as comfortable digging into the latest technology with a developer as talking with a high-level executive about a broader initiative. Our ideal candidate will be able to manage multiple writing assignments while bringing a fresh voice to the latest news via highly trafficked internal and external Web properties.

Responsibilities

  • Writing a variety of assignments, including product launch news, human-interest stories, and feature articles, while communicating technical concepts in real-world language
  • Taking photographs to illustrate your stories
  • Shooting and editing videos for publication on the web and web portal applications
  • Some evenings and occasional weekends required; travel once or twice a year for conferences and events

 Qualifications

  • Expertise teasing out the compelling, credible angle on a story to drive reader interest, as demonstrated by work samples
  • Excellent writing, communication, and planning skills
  • Commitment to producing high-quality work on deadline
  • Experience working with multiple stakeholders and managing several rounds of review
  • An analytical mind and inquisitiveness to follow genuine news stories
  • Be a motivated self-starter who works well independently and as part of a team

Other qualifications include:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Journalism or a related field, or equivalent work experience as a journalist
  • Ability to handle a fast-paced and changing work environment
  • Ability to learn new technologies, concepts, and programs quickly and independently
  • Solid experience with Microsoft applications
  • Strong commitment to customer service and satisfaction
  • Excellent problem solving and multi-tasking skills

This is a full-time employment opportunity at 40 hours per week with an initial probationary period. Prowess provides a well-rounded benefits package including health insurance, flexible spending account, life and disability insurance, paid time off, and retirement plan investing.
