Job Description

The Observer is looking for a reporter to cover the business of climate change and energy. We’re looking for someone with a passion for the subject and a clear-eyed appreciation of its complexity. The right candidate will understand the science behind global warming, the business of fossil fuels, and the markets for carbon emissions.

This beat will cover everything from the fights over solar subsidies in California to the SEC’s climate reporting requirements to Saudi Aramco’s market cap. It will also explore the science and business behind the race to build better batteries, develop sustainable agriculture and mitigate rising oceans.

We want a reporter who can put the news in context, connect the dots and has an appetite for covering one of the biggest stories of this generation (or of any generation).

Ideally this reporter will have:

*At least two years of experience reporting about climate and/or energy or have related experience

*A facility with writing both breaking news and longer enterprise stories

*Fluid and authoritative writing

*The ability to develop sources and break news

*A comfort with data and experience building their own charts

*An eagerness to find and pitch story ideas daily

*Interest in contributing to or writing a newsletter

*High journalistic standards, attention to detail, and the skeptical heart of a fact-checker.

Our headquarters are in New York City, but we will consider remote candidates who live in the United States.
