Job Description

Confidential is a digital media organization preparing to launch in the near future. We’re a newsroom of top-flight reporters, data experts, visual journalists and editors working in collaboration to deliver an interconnected news experience. We plan to create a new, interconnected style of journalism that helps engaged and influential audiences better understand the complex stories that matter most.  

We are hiring journalists with strong reporting and writing skills who would be excited by the challenge of inventing and continually honing new formats. We want to lay out the who, what, when, etc., and explain the multiple frames through which to understand the bigger picture. We want reporters with subject-area expertise who see the forces animating their beats, how their beats intersect with others, and the political, economic, social, global, and scientific contexts in which the big stories on their beats play out.  We will consider applicants with other professional backgrounds who can show us they have the area-specific expertise and writing skills to do the work.
