Job Description

INSIDER is looking for a full-time reporter to help grow and develop our policy team.

At INSIDER, a policy reporter is able to move away from the political horse race and focus on how the government is making an impact on the lives of everyday people.

The ideal candidate would be expected to digest complex policy proposals from lawmakers, connect with experts to gain insight, and explain the effect of government policy on everyday citizens.

The ideal candidate would also:

  • Be able comfortable interacting with policymakers and topic experts

  • Possess an ability to present complex ideas in a creative and clear manner

  • Have knowledge of the policymaking process

  • Have previous experience covering politics, ideally with a focus on policy topics

  • Be able to balance daily production with in-depth reporting and research

  • Have 1-3 years of reporting experience

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