Job Description

The Washington Post is looking for a dynamic journalist to serve as Deputy National Editor.

The deputy editor will help lead our national news coverage, pushing reporters and editors to uncover revelatory information, editing high-level coverage, orchestrating more visual and multimedia storytelling and coordinating with departments across the newsroom.

The deputy will also supervise a group of editors and a limited number of reporters, oversee ambitious projects and ensure that The Post aims for the best story of the day. The ideal candidate will be a strategic thinker, an innovator and a collaborator with a strong track record of journalistic excellence.

This editor will also work closely with the National Editor and other newsroom leaders as we reimagine the future of national coverage. The deputy will also be heavily engaged in recruiting, helping The Post attract the most promising, diverse talent from across the country.

There is a strong internal candidate for this position, but we are interested in hearing from editors with a passion for national news.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work.

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.

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 by Jan. 21. Your cover letter should be addressed to Acting National Editor Matea Gold and Managing Editor Steven Ginsberg.
