Cyber and National Security Reporter

Post Date:Oct 08, 2017Type:Full time
Start Date:Salary:
Location: United States - New York - New York Job Reference:
Job Description:

We are looking for a reporter to join one of America’s most innovative (and, actually, fun) investigative newsrooms to focus on cybersecurity and national security.

We’re not interested in you covering every vulnerability touted by security vendors, or every whisper from the intelligence community. Your job will be to do enterprising, hard-hitting stories that make news. Your stories hold powerful people accountable and expose the real-life consequences of their decisions.

We know there are lots of directions one could take the overlapping issues of cybersecurity and national security. We want you to help define the new beat.

We know there are great candidates who won’t fit everything we’ve described above, or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.

We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. We’re committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.

What you should send us:

The most important part by far is your past work. We’d also like you to submit a memo that describes what you’d most want to report on at ProPublica. Lay out a project or area of focus you think we should concentrate on and tell us how you would execute it. What might specific stories be? How should they be told? How would you imagine achieving impact? Show us how you think.

If all of this sounds exciting to you, apply using this form.

The jobs are full time and include benefits. We are based in New York, but open to remote-working if the fit is right.

The deadline for applications is June 12



Skills:
We’re looking for someone who:

Has a track record of aggressive reporting and landing revelatory stories about abuses of power
Aches to do stories that are both important and powerfully told
Is truly excited about all the possible ways we can do journalism nowadays: from deep data-digging, to working with readers, to marrying narrative and investigative forms
Really likes working with others. Everybody at ProPublica has their own superpower, whether it’s sourcing, document-diving, data, engagement or design. And we do our best work together.
