Job Description

The Canine Review (TCR), the sole independent news organization offering investigative coverage of the pet industry, is looking for a skilled editor with newsroom experience to help assign and edit stories, help reporters develop ideas, and support the executive editor in growing and shaping a high-impact, ambitious journalism enterprise.

This is a freelance, remote-only, contract-based job. Compensation is competitive and will vary based on credentials and experience.

We are looking for someone who:
* has at least 3 years of editing experience at a news organization. This is not negotiable. Please do not apply if you haven’t worked for a news organization.

* has excellent news judgment and an understanding of how to structure and lift up stories, including large investigative projects. Enjoys working closely with reporters and helping them to produce their best work.

* has shown an ability to work collaboratively with teams of different skill levels and backgrounds.

We also hope to find someone who:
* loves dogs (and pets more generally)
* has a connection to a network of capable, experienced freelance reporters.

This is a chance to work with a team of creative, talented journalists, with the potential to lead to a larger editing role.

TCR is a subscription-based news publication. We value independent, quality, “show not tell” reporting that adheres to the highest professional standards for ethics, accuracy, and fairness. We specialize in watchdog journalism (pardon the pun) and strive to hold powerful people and institutions —including lawmakers, pet industry lobbyists, regulators, CEOs, and others — to account.

TCR welcomes all U.S.-based applicants to send a cover letter and resume to
