Newsweek is looking for an experienced, digitally-savvy Politics Writer in New York or Washington to cover national politics, break news and write analysis and features.

We are looking for a writer who is obsessed with politics and policy, and who hates losing to the competition.

The ideal candidate:

  • Can write copy that makes you give a damn and has the reporting to back it up.
  • At least three years of experience covering state or national politics is encouraged.
  • Social media expertise is a major plus.
  • This is primarily a digital position, but there are plenty of opportunities to write for the magazine.

To apply, send a resume, cover letter and five clips to Ken Li at k.li at newsweekgroup.com and Cristina Silva at c.silva at newsweekgroup.com
