Award-Winning Investigative News Publication Seeks Editor-in-Chief


The award-winning investigative news publication Capital & Main is seeking an editor-in-chief to lead its editorial department beginning in May 2021. The position is based in Los Angeles and offers a great opportunity to join a growing nonprofit newsroom of passionate, talented journalists dedicated to coverage of inequality. Founded in 2013, Capital & Main reports on inequities related to class, race, immigration, gender, corporate accountability, climate change and energy, education and health both in California and nationally.

We are looking for an editor with at least 10 years of experience in both investigative and narrative journalism to head a small team of highly skilled reporters and editors. The most important qualifications for this position include:

The editor-in-chief oversees all editorial content for Capital & Main and is responsible for ensuring that the publication produces between 25 and 35 stories a month. This includes news and analysis, investigative stories, narrative articles, data analysis, interviews and multimedia content. The editor works closely with an associate editor and multimedia editor as well as the publisher, fact-checkers and proofreaders. Stories are written both by staff reporters and freelance contributors.

Our stories are co-published in a wide range of outlets, including USA Today, Newsweek, the Guardian, Fast Company, the American Prospect and many others. In 2020, Capital & Main produced the largest American reporting project on inequality, with nearly 100 stories over the course of 12 months. We also launched a major new reporting initiative on climate change as well as two original podcasts on COVID-19. Last year the publication won more than 40 regional and national awards, including Online Journalist of the Year and Best Internet-Only News Website in Southern California.

People of color and women are strongly encouraged to apply for this position. The salary range is $100,000 to $115,000 depending on experience, with excellent benefits. Please send a resume and cover letter no later than February 28 to dfeingold@capitalandmain.com.
