If you’re a veteran editor who moves seamlessly from daily news stories to long-term projects and gets the best out of experienced journalists while coaching newer ones, you might be the next Deputy News Editor at CalMatters. 

Why you? You know the intricacies of policy and politics coverage and how to make important topics accessible for the people they affect. You help reporters own their beats. You have excellent writing and editing and analytical skills. You bring in-depth stories to life with text, photos, graphics, data visualization, audio and video. And you’re known for integrity, high energy, a can-do attitude, flexibility and unflappability. 

In four years, CalMatters has become the largest newsroom covering California policy and politics. We’re a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, and we give our coverage at no cost to more than 180 media outlets in California. With you on the team, we’ll build on that success with deeper coverage and impactful projects. 

Most of our team is in Sacramento, so that’s the ideal place for this editor, but we can be flexible for the right person. 

Responsibilities include: 

We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. We’re committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. If you’re interested, please provide a resume, a cover letter that outlines how you would approach the job and links to at least six online samples of your work.
