Job Description

The Washington Post is seeking a reporter to anchor The Cybersecurity 202, a daily newsletter focused on cybersecurity policy in Washington.

We are looking for someone with an ability to break news on this important topic area and deliver sophisticated analysis in the newsletter, which is published every weekday morning. The ideal candidate will have several years of experience covering cybersecurity issues.

The author of this newsletter will be expected to write authoritatively about efforts by the federal government and Congress to advance cyber policies, how the private sector is trying to influence the debate in Washington, the hacks of federal agencies and private companies, the actions of hacking gangs around the world and the private sector response to rapidly rising ransomware attacks.

The reporter should have the ability to zero in on critical developments, as well as pull back to tell broader, thematic stories. We are looking for someone who can write for both cyber experts in Washington and readers who want to understand how cybersecurity policies will affect their lives. Applicants must be willing to work early morning hours.

Interested candidates should upload a résumé with links to their work and a cover letter outlining the experience they would bring to the position to our jobs portal. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled, but those received by 06/20/2022 will be prioritized. Your cover letter should be addressed to National Editor Matea Gold, Deputy National Editor Philip Rucker, 202 Newsletter Editor Dave Clarke and Managing Editors Steven Ginsberg and Krissah Thompson.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.
