MuckRock, a non-profit government transparency news site and tool suite, is looking for two reporters — one in Arkansas, one in Alabama — to help find interesting stories hidden in public records in your state and share them with the world. Pieces can range from investigations into government spending to dubious law enforcements to exploring interesting data sets you've stumbled upon. To get a sense of what we're about, check out our prior reporting and social media, and see what our Virginia and Tennessee writers have been doing.
You'll be working with a small team and a large community of transparency enthusiasts, and will have the opportunity to have some of your reporting tie in to larger editorial projects, such as investigations into local surveillance or exploring corporate handouts. You'll also have unfettered access to MuckRock's various journalism tools, including its filing platform, crowdsourcing tools, DocumentCloud for document analysis, and more.
You'll also be assisting with our users' public records projects, including large scale reporting that has a national impact, by helping serve as a local resident for agencies that require it in your state. The hours are highly flexible and set by you, and all work would be remote. We collaborate via Slack, Google Docs, and email. Read more about our mission, meet the staff, and let us know if you have any questions.
