Patch readers deserve passionate, dogged journalists with an eye for a good story. If you have an enterprising spirit, love to set your own local news agenda and don't need a city editor to assign stories to you, Patch may be right for you. There's an opening for a local editor to cover several Wisconsin communities, including Franklin, Greenfield, Greendale, Oak Creek, Whitefish Bay, and Mount Pleasant. 

We lead with our hearts at Patch. We are passionate about fulfilling a mission of service to our communities and colleagues. We work hard. We laugh a lot, look out for each other and celebrate our successes together. We choose to learn from our failures and mistakes, pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and move forward. Always forward. Patch offers a unique newsroom culture: positive, growth focused and entrepreneurial. We're transparent about our business and analytics. It's not unusual to see fluffy animals, a self-care expert, or the resident comedian on our All-Hands video gatherings.

Patch employs about 200 journalists, technologists and sales pros. A sense of belonging among our teammates is critical to our growth and achievement. We seek to build an eclectic, talented team to match the cultural diversity of our country. Patch is an equal opportunity employer committed to providing employees with an inclusive work environment free of discrimination and harassment.
