Description:, a new, digital-only news voice in Austin, is searching for a Freelance General Assignment Reporter. Although the position will start out part-time, a strong performance can create the opportunity to increase your weekly hours or even become a permanent part of our team.

We're looking for a great storyteller—a strong writer with more story ideas than Austin has food trucks, a gift for finding and nurturing sources, and the motivation to get scoops, day after day.

The ideal candidate knows our city well—neighborhoods, personalities, issues, restaurants, happy hours, local legends, and aspirations.

You won't spend much time in the newsroom. This is a field reporting position.

We're an authentically Austin, locally owned-and-operated, digital media startup and we'll be doing things our way. With a small team and big plans, we'll be figuring it out together, one day at a time. You have to be comfortable with the energy, shared responsibility, and constant change that are characteristic of a startup.

Austonia is building a high-performance culture centered on respect—for our readers, the subjects of our stories, and each other.

To apply, submit your resume. If accepted, we'll contact you with a reporting test that you will take and submit back to us.
