INSIDER health reporter

Editorial | New York, NY | Full Time

Job Description

 INSIDER is looking for a full-time health reporter to join our team.

The ideal candidate has a broad knowledge of topics related to health, including nutrition, exercise, women’s health, parenting, mental health, and medical breakthroughs, and more. If you'd be excited to spend your days writing about the health benefits of coffee, cancer-linked foods and products, bug bites that turn out to be rare insect infestations, and the ramifications of marijuana use during pregnancy, this could be the job for you.

Our style is smart, conversational, exciting, and geared toward a general audience. The health reporter will need to be able to turn their ideas into compelling slideshows, find the latest health news before everyone else, translate the intricacies of a complicated study for a mainstream audience, and understand why a new development is important in a larger context.

You'll be called on to write visual features, quick aggregated posts, and in-depth feature stories, among other things. 

We're looking for someone who loves health and wellness and is full of great ideas. This person should be excited about INSIDER’s mission to serve a huge digital audience through all kinds of storytelling, via all digital platforms. 

The ideal candidate will have:

  • An understanding of how to write about health for a broad audience, and the flexibility to cover a wide range of topics

  • The ability to work efficiently in a quick-turnaround environment without sacrificing accuracy and attention to detail

  • At least a few years of experience covering health for a digital publication

This is a full-time position based out of our New York headquarters. INSIDER offers competitive compensation packages complete with benefits.

INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That’s everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It’s smart. It’s fearless. It’s fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire.
