RTO Insider, a fast-growing trade publication covering the electric power industry, seeks an energetic, inquisitive beat reporter based in Sacramento, Calif.
Your job will revolve around coverage of the California bodies affecting electric utilities (i.e., state legislature, California Energy Commission, California Public Utilities Commission) and the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), based in Folsom, CA.
We seek someone able to translate complex issues into readable prose. Knowledge of economics, business concepts and basic physics helpful.
We are building The Wall Street Journal of the electric power industry. I am an award-winning former reporter and editor with The Philadelphia Inquirer and Bloomberg and I believe trade publications don’t have to be dull or poorly written. Moreover, trade publishing is one of the few sustainable career models remaining for journalists.
We will pay a very competitive rate for the right person.
Send resume and up to five of your best writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. No phone calls please.
Job Type: Full-time
Salary: $40,000 to $63,000/year depending on experience
