The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter to write memorable features and break news in Washington DC, with an emphasis on digging into data and sourcing in the world of government and politics to produce deeply reported, insightful stories and highly visual content.
The canvas for this job is as broad as politics itself. The ideal candidate will be someone with a deep knowledge of Washington and the ways the inner workings of the town touch everyone in the U.S. The ideal candidate will be able to use existing data to tell us new things — and be able to create new data to mine for stories. The job will also include a steady stream of ambitious features and will be expected to break news. Candidates should have seven or more years experience writing news and feature stories, with clips that specifically demonstrate the ability to tell big, bold stories that everyone talks about.
The job will report to the Washington Enterprise Editor and be based in our Washington, DC office.
