State Reporters (EDI0024)

POLITICO is seeking state-based reporters to join our team. Candidates should be comfortable working independently and capable of producing a daily newsletter as well as a steady flow of accurate, crisp and cleanly written news stories about the players, politics and policy of their state. Candidates should have a highly attuned “nose for news,” have a developed social media presence, and be conversant on all their state’s issues relevant inside their state, in Washington, and nationally.


Experience covering spot news; established ability to write quickly and accurately on tight deadlines; capable of handling a demanding reporting position with grace under pressure; solid news judgment and a feel for stories that have “buzz”; a background covering politics is preferred.
