New York Focus is seeking a full-time state government reporter determined to expose how decisions in Albany are made.

We’re looking for an obsessive deep-digger who throws light on how power really works by cultivating sources in every corner of state government, poring over financial disclosures, bombarding agencies with records requests, and scrutinizing the gaps in official accounts.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Demonstrated investigative skills
  • Ability to write clearly and engagingly

Compensation: $60,000 to $70,000 annual salary, plus great benefits.

To Apply:

Please submit a cover letter, résumé, contact information for three professional references, and three clips to
