El Paso Matters is seeking a reporter to join our diverse and innovative team of journalists covering the El Paso border region.
This reporting position will focus on key issues along the U.S.-Mexico border — including immigration, border enforcement, COVID-19 recovery and marijuana legalization. This position will be a key part of a unique binational media collaboration, with funding from Microsoft, that aims to rebuild local journalism by developing deeper, richer and engaging content to form connections with the communities we serve.
We’re looking for:
A reporter with two or more years’ experience in a newsroom. Fluency in English and Spanish is preferred.
Experience reporting on the U.S.-Mexico border or other predominantly Latino communities is a plus.
Someone who can work independently under deadline and juggle a variety of assignments, from short- and medium-term enterprise to more substantial signature projects.
Experience working with data is preferred.
Strong collaboration skills are crucial.
