Job Description:

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 and writing skills who would be excited by the challenge of inventing and continually honing 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 reporters with subject-area expertise who see the forces animating their beats, how their beats intersect with others, and the political, economic, social, global, and scientific contexts in which the big stories on their beats play out.  We will consider applicants with other professional backgrounds who can show us they have the area-specific expertise and writing skills to do the work.
