Dallas' city government employs 13,000 people who make decisions and provide services (or not) for some 1.3 million residents. As we chronicle how city officials and workers deliver those services and lead under growing challenges -- including climate change, political polarization, and continuing debates over policing and fair housing -- we need an agile, energetic reporter who will develop a deep bench of sources beyond the usual suspects, who's adept at analyzing city data and records, and who can deliver timely enterprise.

The beat offers a broad range of topics and coverage areas, among them: local politics, influential figures, the rich, the poor, the shrinking middle class, economic development, transportation, quality-of-life issues, parks, code enforcement, zoning and planning, housing, homelessness, budgets and taxes, pensions, lawsuits and campaigns -- including the May 2019 mayoral and City Council races.

The reporter will work as part of the Dallas hub, and will work especially closely with the city columnist. Collaborations with investigative reporters are also likely.

We will give preferential consideration to reporters with at least 3 year’s experience, especially covering a government or politics beat.
