We are building an extraordinary, mission-driven organization that pioneers new forms of civic journalism and offers hope and optimism for the future of local news. After 10 years building Berkeleyside into a widely recognized, nationally lauded local news site, we are launching an ambitious, yet-to-be-named mission-driven organization. We have core funding from the American Journalism Project and Google News Initiative. Our first new launch will be in Oakland this spring. We’re nonprofit and nonpartisan. Diversity, equity and civility are among our core values, and they’ll shape our relationship with our readers and each other.
We encourage people of all backgrounds to apply. We offer competitive salaries, a health plan, four weeks of paid leave and a 401(k) match.
