The Intercept is looking for an energetic investigative reporter to expand our coverage of Washington — someone whose range extends from traditional politics to the inner workings of the national security and law enforcement infrastructure, recognizing that politics intersects with the latter, and the latter intersects with politics. The reporter must be able to work collaboratively with other reporters, researchers, and editors at The Intercept, as well as outside partners on occasion, and have an interest in covering politics as a meaningful enterprise rather than a sporting event. The reporter is expected to be a self-starter who can generate their own story ideas, as well as quickly respond to assignments from editors and use sources and documents to write exclusive stories. Ideally, the candidate would be based near one of our U.S. offices — in New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. The Investigative Reporter will be a member of the politics team.
