Reason is looking to hire a video journalist with an understanding of politics and public policy and an appreciation for the libertarian worldview.
The ideal candidates will have experience conceiving of story ideas, researching and reporting, conducting on-camera interviews, and generating video scripts on cultural, political, and public policy issues. We're looking for someone capable of exploring topics like trade policy, statehouse shenanigans, police misconduct, immigration red tape, bitcoin use in authoritarian countries, biohacking, or the 3D-printed gun movement.
Video production experience is a big plus, and especially the ability to shoot, edit in Adobe Premeire, and to create basic motion graphics in After Effects. But these skills aren't a prerequisite to apply, and we're also open to applications from print journalists interested in switching over to multi-media work.
The ideal candidate will be able to work out of our office in Washington, D.C. Candidates should be comfortable working in a flexible, collaborative environment.
Send your resume, cover letter, links to story samples, and three pitches for videos that you would like to produce if you were a member of our team. Don't just name a topic of interest—describe an actual story and a realistic approach to covering it.
