Description

Are you a talented, news-obsessed writer looking for an opportunity to show off your chops, sharpen your voice, and work at a news shop that's making a difference? If so, then we have the job for you.

Grist, the acclaimed green site, is looking for one or more news reporter-bloggers.

Requirements:
• You have an irrepressible interest in news in general as well as in the topics we cover (climate and energy, sustainability, cities, food)
• You're excited about exploring innovative ways to use new media to tell stories in a fast-moving environment
• You possess a strong voice and have no qualms about using it
• Irreverent humor comes easily to you
• You know how to pursue a story online and offline, in social and traditional media
• Breaking news thrills you, but you don't think aggregation is a dirty word
• You understand the way blogs work and how one story can unfold across multiple posts
• You're happy working independently, also as part of a team

Qualifications:
• At least 3 years of writing experience, preferably online
• Ability to work in a fast-paced environment, juggling multiple priorities
• Experience and comfort with technology, social media, and digital tools for journalism
• Environmental experience not required, but a zeal for our mission of mobilizing readers to build a more sustainable world is
• A wicked sense of humor

Salary commensurate with experience. Grist offers excellent benefits, a friendly workplace, and the opportunity to play a crucial role in an organization with a mission.
