Full- and Part-Time Editors

CALmatters, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news venture dedicated to explaining the policy and politics of America’s biggest state and the world’s fifth largest economy, is looking for full- and part-time editors. We have a need for managing project teams, editorial products and beat reporters.

What we’re looking for:

  • A seasoned, multimedia journalist with experience reporting and editing government policy and politics stories
  • Excellent writing and analytical skills
  • Works well with a variety of reporters and issue
  • Has a track record of bringing in-depth stories to life on the web through a combination of text, photos, graphics, data visualization and video/audio
  • Critical traits include: integrity, high energy, can-do attitude, flexibility and unflappability
  • A preference for locating in Sacramento


What these editors will do:

  • Work with reporters to brainstorm, develop and produce lively coverage—from timely briefs to rigorously reported projects— that tell Californians what’s going on in state government and how it affects their lives
  • Encourage and exemplify a culture of innovation in storytelling
  • Oversee and in some cases create editorial packages in our WordPress CMS
  • Assist in the management of the newsroom—helping to maintain story plans and calendars, coordinate with other staffers and freelancers, approve expenses
  • Prepare content for distribution to dozens of media partners; communicate and coordinate with media partners


We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully forging a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. CALmatters is committed to diversity and especially encourages members of underrepresented communities to apply. If interested, please send a resume and work samples to jobs@calmatters.org and put the job title in the subject line.
