POLITICO’s mission from the very beginning was to win the audience. We dedicate ourselves to providing accurate, non-partisan, impactful information to the right people at the right time so that they can act with confidence and speed. We experiment to avoid being disrupted and we have fun disrupting others. And we are not afraid to risk failure if it means being the best at what we do.
POLITICO is seeking a tenacious reporter to join our New York City bureau covering the city government with a focus on the City Council. The reporter will be part of a team covering the nation’s biggest city hall and the 51-member Council, writing stories about the intersection of business and municipal government, as well as internal Council dynamics as they play into the larger picture of City Hall, Albany and national politics. The job involves breaking news, writing high-impact enterprise stories for an informed audience and co-anchoring a daily newsletter. Candidates must be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and capable of producing a steady flow of well-written stories along with a daily newsletter.
What you’ll need:
+ Familiarity with New York City politics and its players
+ A track record of clean, clear, authoritative writing
+ Ability to break news and work on deadline while also pursuing enterprise stories
+ Collaborative spirit to work as part of a team
