Position description

We’re something really different — a group of journalists who grew frustrated at the failings of our craft to address national and international problems at a deep enough level. We observed how most journalism is either fundamentally motivated by profits, or driven by a clear ideological, partisan agenda.

At WhoWhatWhy, you have a space to do your best work, research with an open mind, and present your findings in an exciting way to a broad audience that hungers for the truth. We encourage you to tackle any subject or angle, without fear that you would be somehow marginalized for breaking from the pack.

This opportunity is part-time and remote. Location doesn't matter. You need to closely follow the news, be resourceful and self-motivated, and take the time to understand our particular approach to journalism.
