General Assignment Reporter

InsideClimate News is looking for a general assignment reporter who can write frequently and with authority on climate change and energy issues to join our growing newsroom.

We see this as a high-profile position with a strong social media component that complements our award-winning investigative work.

We prize accuracy, creativity, clarity, flexibility, adherence to deadlines, good news judgment and a strong work ethic. An ability to excel in the culture of an entrepreneurial and collaborative news organization is a must.

- Minimum of five years of journalism experience
- Superlative people skills and collaborative nature
- Confidence working independently under deadline pressure
- Passion for accountability journalism
- Experience covering the policy and politics of climate/energy issues—and an established social media presence—pluses
