We’re looking for three ambitious reporters to take on compelling stories grounded in the Pacific Northwest but with national resonance, designed to surprise, reveal, inform and bring about change.
The Northwest is a diverse and important region — a major technology hub (home to Amazon and Microsoft), an important gateway to international trade, a harbinger for the effects of climate change and a home of abundant natural resources. You’ll be a part of our team of reporters covering the Pacific Northwest with a focus on Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho.
Our work in the region by staff and Local Reporting Network partners has revealed how indigenous people in Alaska are denied public safety services, detailed the harrowing account of the hunt for a serial rapist and botched police investigations, drawn attention to allegations of abuse and minimal instruction at special education schools in Washington, and highlighted the disproportionate risk of toxic exposure to Native tribes from fish in Oregon. And we’re excited to dig deeper into this important region.
We’re looking for a reporter who:
This job is full time and includes benefits. The candidates must be based in, or willing to relocate to, one of the states in our Pacific Northwest coverage area. Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S.
The expected salary range for this position is $85,000 to $170,000.
This is a good faith estimate of what we expect to pay for this position. The final salary figure will take into account a person’s experience, accomplishment and location. ProPublica is committed to paying its staff equitably, and these ranges should not be considered career salary limits or caps.
We know there are great candidates who may not fit into what we’ve described above or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.
We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities. We are an equal opportunity employer and prohibit discrimination and harassment of any kind. All employment decisions are made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age or any other status protected under applicable law.
We will begin reviewing applications on March 20, but we will continue to consider candidates as long as the posting remains live on our site.
