The Austin American-Statesman is hiring a metro columnist to fearlessly give voice to those in need and call out abuses of the powerful.

The Austin metro columnist would research and write accurate, timely, comprehensive, and fair and balanced columns multiple days a week and on a daily deadline basis as needed. The columnist would need to maintain a diverse group of sources in local government and the community who provide current and reliable information on issues such as homelessness, affordability, growth and gentrification. The job calls for someone who will keep their finger on the pulse of current events and who can breakdown complicated concepts and put them into perspective for readers. The columnist is expected to work cooperatively with other Statesman journalists, including reporters, editors, photographers and digital specialists.

Were looking for a modern journalist who has experience leveraging social media to meet and engage diverse communities but who also has old school skills shoe leather, fact-based reporting. We want a bulldog who wont be deterred by uncooperative bureaucrats and who knows their way around open records laws.

We want someone with integrity, compassion and empathy who will fight to help make Austin a better place for its residents.

The ideal candidate has clips that demonstrate smooth, distinctive, concise writing with original phrasing and imagery. Were looking for someone with at least seven years of experience reporting for a daily publication. Fluency in Spanish is a plus.
