Employment Type

: Full-Time

POLITICO’s mission from the very beginning was to win the audience. We dedicate ourselves to providing accurate, non-partisan, impactful information to the right people at the right time so that they can act with confidence and speed. We experiment to avoid being disrupted and we have fun disrupting others. And we are not afraid to risk failure if it means being the best at what we do.

POLITICO's health team is seeking an experienced health policy reporter, particularly with knowledge of Medicaid, the ACA and state health policy. The candidate will understand the intersection of health policy and politics, and be able to quickly produce breaking news and scoops as well as enterprise pieces. We are looking for a reporter who will provide insights into the policies, politics and decisions makers in Washington and the states. You’ll be part of a high-quality, highly-collaborative team covering health policy and politics in Washington and the states.

What you'll need:

  • At least three years of relevant journalism experience.
  • Ability to write clearly and accurately on deadline
  • Proven ability to handle a demanding, fast-moving reporting job.
  • We are driven by our values.  We are relentless contributors, disruptors, collaborators, and talent cultivators. Our culture is defined by grit, total integrity, and a prioritization on innovation.

    We value our people.  We offer a competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits package, including health and wellness benefits, commuter benefits, retirement plans, as well as work-life balance flexibility and opportunities for career development.

    Let’s keep in touch.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @politicocareers and #meetPOLITICO for a deep dive into what makes us POLITICOs and our adventures. We’d love to hear from you!
