Confidential is a well-funded digital news startup preparing to launch in Washington, D.C. this fall. Our goal is to create a radically different publication, one that uses a distinct set of formats to deliver a nuanced and comprehensive view of the most important stories of the day. We are hiring journalists excited to get in on the ground floor and help us shape our identity.
We are hiring journalists with strong reporting, writing and analytical skills who are excited by the challenge of taking a new approach to their work and continually testing new formats. We want to lay out the who, what, when, etc., and explain the multiple frames through which to understand the bigger picture. We want to bring clarity to the stories that matter. We consider applicants with other professional backgrounds and life experience who can show us they have the expertise, thoughtfulness and writing skills to do the work.

Confidential is hiring general assignment reporters excited to work collaboratively with colleagues to cover the biggest stories and challenges of the day. A general assignment reporter must have wide interests, follow the news closely and have a knack for asking the fundamental questions behind unfolding stories and thrive under deadline pressure.
A General Assignment Reporter will pitch stories that require us to move quickly to get the facts right and then connect them to areas of expertise in the newsroom, including science and technology, climate and environment, economics, policy and politics, geopolitics, health ang global security. Ideal candidates can demonstrate a real love for news, an ability to get details right while moving quickly and an ability to connect unfolding stories to larger themes and ideas.
