Insider seeks a clean energy reporter

March 22, 2022

Posted by Chris Roush

Insider is looking for an experienced reporter to help build our coverage of the energy industry, focused on the startups and investors in the clean-energy and renewables sector.

For this role, we want to hire an ambitious reporter with experience covering the energy industry. The role will be part of a new team that we’re building at Insider, focused on the energy industry. Because this is a new coverage area for Insider, the reporters we hire will have the opportunity to shape our approach to the massive industry.

We value coverage that takes readers inside companies and makes an impact. Our reporting first exposed Exxon’s employee ranking system, which it used to quietly cut staff. In response to our story on solar-panel marketing, Facebook removed ads that misled the public. We’ve also made a mark through our fresh analyses and deep dives into opaque industries from biofuels to renewable energy certificates.

A successful person in this role will have the sourcing and reporting skills to break news and write stories that our readers can’t find anywhere else. We’re looking for reporters who are eager to experiment with different kinds of coverage and excited about building something new.

We’re looking for someone with:

  • Experience writing about the energy industry
  • A track record of breaking news that matters on a competitive beat
  • The ability to work collaboratively and bring out the best in your teammates
  • The drive to experiment and try different types of stories and coverage to figure out what works
  • The passion to go the extra mile to deliver stories for our readers that they can’t find anywhere else

If this sounds like your dream job, apply here with a cover letter and resume.. Please also include links to five pieces of work in your cover letter.

The salary range for this position is $80,000-$115,000.
