CALmatters (Sacramento, California)

Posted 3 years ago

CALmatters, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news venture dedicated to explaining the policy and politics of America’s biggest state and the world’s fifth largest economy, is looking for full- and part-time editors. We have a need for managing project teams, editorial products and beat reporters.

What we’re looking for:

  • A seasoned, multimedia journalist with experience reporting and editing government policy and politics stories
  • Excellent writing and analytical skills
  • Works well with a variety of reporters and issues
  • Has a track record of bringing in-depth stories to life on the web through a combination of text, photos, graphics, data visualization and video/audio
  • Critical traits include: integrity, high energy, can-do attitude, flexibility and unflappability
  • A preference for locating in Sacramento

What these editors will do:

  • Work with reporters to brainstorm, develop and produce lively coverage—from timely briefs to rigorously reported projects—that tell Californians what’s going on in state government and how it affects their lives
  • Encourage and exemplify a culture of innovation in storytelling
  • Oversee and in some cases create editorial packages in our WordPress CMS
  • Assist in the management of the newsroom—helping to maintain story plans and calendars, coordinate with other staffers and freelancers, approve expenses
  • Prepare content for distribution to dozens of media partners; communicate and coordinate with media partners

We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. CALmatters is committed to diversity and especially encourages members of underrepresented communities to apply. If interested, please send a resume and work samples to jobs@calmatters.org and put the job title in the subject line.
