HoustonPress.Com has an immediate opening for a daily news reporter. We're looking for a Houston-based, deadline-capable journalist who has a thorough understanding of the local landscape. We need an agile, indigenous web animal to report on and riff off of the day's stories.
We are not after aggregation or news-wire copy; we want insight, voice, humor and sophistication, along with an innate feel for SEO and social media. You would be the architect of your own work -- four original posts daily, each containing a bright idea of your own as well as, dare we ask, aggressive original reporting.
This is a full-time position with competitive salary and excellent benefits. Interested and qualified applicants should send a cover letter, résumé and four work samples, along with two proposed story ideas for daily posts on HoustonPress.com, to: Houfirstname.lastname@example.org
