Patch is hiring a local editor to cover communities in Arizona, including Scottsdale, Tempe, Tucson, and Phoenix. This is one of several positions Patch is adding this year. Local editors report news, engage with readers and program email newsletters.
WE ARE PATCH

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.
