Requirements
  • Previous experience in a fast-paced digital news environment. Previous experience covering U.S. politics is strongly preferred.
  • Multitasking reporting and writing speed. While we measure impact and readership more than activity, this beat will deliver multiple stories a day while chipping away at broader enterprise work.
  • The ability to be a self starter, coming up with unique story angles to boost audience and build Newsweek's credibility and authority.
  • Clean, accurate writing. Editors will be there to backstop your work, but ensuring accuracy starts with you \/ doubly important when dealing with legal affairs.
  • Familiarity with real-time readership resources like Chartbeat, Parse.ly, Google Trends or Google Analytics is a plus.
  • A bachelor's degree or higher in journalism, communications or a related field.
Responsibilities
  • Building up sources, alerts and experts to quickly publish and spot stories on politics, natural disasters, cultural flashpoints and crime. This position will publish stories every day.
  • Understanding audience, selecting stories on issues that will have broad reach and impact.
  • Balancing the need for fast turns with unique features. Speed is important, but we understand that finding unique angles and covering them with quality takes time. Being able to balance the two and shift between modes is key to success in this role.
