Job Description

Here/Say Media is looking for a full-time reporter to join our San Francisco-based team. In this position, you’ll investigate and report content and collaborate on creating video and social media content for rapid-response and evergreen explainers of local civic and political happenings, tethered to the news cycle to be distributed on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

 

We’re looking for a shrewd writer who can find the story behind the story in local politics and cover civic issues such as homelessness, housing, local business, transportation and more. You should be able to quickly get to the bottom of not just what’s happening, but why it’s happening. You should also feel excited and comfortable translating that information into easily-digestible content that the average citizen can quickly digest.

 

You should have a proven track record of writing and/or journalism and be comfortable working through ambiguity—we are a startup! We’ve got lots of ideas and plans, but we know that many of them will change according to what we learn as we launch and you lead in this role. In this role you’ll need to be open to adapting, learning, and growing with us.

Responsibilities

  • Identify topics and issues relevant to San Francisco residents to build out a content calendar in coordination with a team
  • Investigate, research and analyze multiple data sources to compile stories
  • Consolidate complicated information and competing sources to create a truthful and engaging narrative
  • Be equally comfortable collaborating with a team or working independently from concept to completion
  • Be self-motivated and able to handle competing priorities and shifting deadlines
  • Be able to work under pressure while maintaining a positive attitude
  • Be organized and have excellent project and time management skills

Job Requirements

  • Bachelor’s Degree required, advanced journalism degree a plus
  • 5+ years of journalism experience at a media publication or advocacy organization
  • Extraordinary writing, editing, research, and framing/storytelling skills.
  • Excellent analytical skills, news sense, and political savvy, including awareness and sensitivity to power dynamics and long-term consequences of decisions taken.
  • Extensive knowledge of print and electronic news media, including the ability to navigate social media and to implement or manage staff through multimedia projects.
  • A strong understanding of how writing and conceptual ideas can be used to tell a story on behalf of a political, advocacy or nonprofit.
  • Excellent computer skills, highly proficient in the Microsoft Office suite (particularly Excel and Word) and web applications. Knowledge of graphic design software and strong design sense a plus.
  • Project Management: Maintaining a publishing calendar, managing multiple stories and updating stakeholders on their progress
  • Demonstrated success in creating shareable stories for social media
  • Experience in the news and/or on digital, political advocacy, electoral, or issue campaigns a strong plus.
  • Basic knowledge of video production to collaborate with videographers on multimedia projects
