Politico seeks a California climate reporter

May 25, 2023

Posted by Mariam Ahmed

POLITICO is seeking an ambitious and creative reporter to anchor a new POLITICO newsletter on the politics and policy surrounding climate change in California, as part of our expansion in the nation’s largest state – a state where the climate story is playing out at a more rapid pace than anywhere else in America.

California’s ambitious clean-energy goals inspired copycat laws across the globe and forced the automotive industry to accelerate its transition to electric vehicles. Its raging wildfires and housing sprawl threaten to create the costliest natural disaster in American history. Access to water drives politics and business like few other places, and efforts to expand wind, solar and geothermal power generation are running head-on into capacity issues that may affect tens of millions of people. We want a journalist who can dig into that story for our influential California audience, and narrate the conversation among California power players, policymakers, executives, environmentalists and more.

This reporter will work with our talented policy and political reporters across the state, and look at the intersections across sectors of the economy and policymaking landscape, from technology to water to labor.

What You’ll Need:

  • A track record of strong and innovative reporting in politics, policy or business
  • A sophisticated understanding of the policymaking and politics surrounding climate issues in California
  • Strong and incisive writing skills
  • An entrepreneurial streak and a desire to build a distinctive newsletter that engages readers and drives the conversation
  • A collaborative attitude and desire to be part of a growing statewide team

The anticipated salary range for candidates who will work in Sacramento, CA is $80,000.00-$120,000.00 per year. The final salary offered, which may be higher than the current anticipated salary range, to a successful candidate will be dependent on several factors that may include but are not limited to the type and years of experience within the job, type and years of experience within the industry, education, etc.
