Description:

Maritime Publishing is seeking a staff writer for Professional Mariner, a quality-minded monthly magazine covering the U.S. maritime industry.

This position will involve writing news and features for the print magazine and contributing to the website. We're looking for an accurate, resourceful reporter and clear writer. The ability to develop story ideas, multi-task and work independently is a must. Social media, photography and copy editing skills are a plus. 

Our magazine isn’t interested in quarterly earnings reports, product reviews or executive profiles. We publish original reporting that is useful and relevant to working mariners. You’ll have the chance to ride aboard vessels, pursue investigative reporting and cover stories affecting 650,000 people working in the U.S. maritime industry.

Opportunities for some company-paid travel. Maritime knowledge helpful but not required to succeed in this position.

Maritime Publishing, with offices in San Diego and Portland, Maine, offers competitive pay and benefits, a flexible work environment, and the ability to work remotely. We'd like someone based on the Gulf Coast or near a major port but will choose a candidate based on skills and experience rather than location.

Please send resume, cover letter, work samples and salary requirements by May 24 to careers@maritimepublishing.com.
