Description:

We’re looking for a journalist who wants to grow their investigative reporting skills in Oklahoma.

The ideal candidate is a self-starter who likes what The Frontier does and wants to do their best work here. As far as a beat goes, tell us what issues you’re passionate about looking into and we’ll see if our interests align. We’re looking for a critical thinker who can work independently and is detail-oriented with facts. We need someone who wants to work on longer-term, deeply reported projects along with shorter-term news stories. We are willing to consider someone with a little less experience if we feel like it would be a good fit with our newsroom. 

You will join Oklahoma’s top nonprofit investigative newsroom. We have a small, dedicated team that regularly punches above its weight, breaking important stories and taking top honors in state and regional journalism contests. The Frontier has a mission to produce fearless, independent journalism with impact. We hold those in power accountable and tell stories that matter to Oklahoma.

We offer some ability to work remotely, opportunities for professional development and competitive pay and benefits.

The Frontier wants our newsroom to better reflect the communities we serve and we encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply. 

This position can be based in the Oklahoma City or Tulsa area.

Salary: Negotiable

Requirements: BA/BS degree or equivalent experience

Skills: Demonstrated ability to write, think critically and produce original stories
