Reckon is hiring nationwide. Here’s why you should join us.

Join us at Reckon – we’re hiring.

We are looking for editors, reporters and senior news leaders across the country who want to be part of our work covering reckonings in America.

So far we have posted new positions for deputy editor, reporters and editors on our Black Joy by Reckon team and producers on our audience team. In the coming weeks and months, we’ll post more jobs as part of our planned expansion from a regional news brand to a national news organization.

At Reckon, our coverage centers the people often ignored or erased from traditional news coverage.

In the past few years, young people and other changemakers have brought renewed energy and focus to reckonings with America — especially when it comes to justice, equity and power.

We’ve been there, covering those movements, issues and perspectives and shining a light on people in the South and elsewhere, growing our readership across the country.

These new positions will help us bring more of our work to those readers as part of our national expansion to cover the reckonings throughout America, the people pushing change and the issues that inspire them.

We want these new journalists spread out in communities across the country to cover climate justice, reproductive rights, faith and purity culture, working mothers and families, trans rights, Blackness, racial justice, movements, queer issues and more.

If you’re excited about our mission and don’t see a job listed that’s an exact fit for you, write us and let’s talk. Here are the positions we currently have open; click the link for details and application instructions:
