Senior Editor, National

The senior editor will supervise a team of reporters producing revelatory and impactful investigative journalism. The ideal candidate enjoys the challenge of helping reporters envision the most ambitious and creative paths for their projects; deeply understands and embraces ProPublica’s accountability mission; has a facility for high-level story honing and writing as well as investigative reporting; and is dedicated to helping our reporters grow and develop. We’re looking for an experienced journalist with sound news judgment who is equally comfortable and adept at weighing in on what’s working, or not, in a long-form narrative as in a complicated, multipart investigation.

This position involves juggling a variety of high-level projects, weighing in on story selection and direction, guiding the reporting and writing process, handling big-picture editing and line editing, as well as working with staffers from other ProPublica teams, such as data, research, video and audience.
