Careers – Open Positions

The GroundTruth Project is seeking an experienced Audio Producer on a part-time basis (20-30 hours per week), to lead the production of a new podcast of dispatch reports from a team of remote reporters. The episodes will be primarily reporter-narrated, 7-10 minutes in length, and include field audio captured by emerging journalists with varying levels of audio experience. At this time the position is temporary for 4-6 months, with the possibility of moving to permanent in 2021.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) will provide the vision and operational leadership to help translate The GroundTruth Project’s journalistic mission and programmatic priorities into operational strategies that achieve the goals of this fast-growing, non-profit organization. This position opens at an extraordinary moment of growth in this organization as it scales to confront a big challenge: the crisis in journalism has become a crisis for democracy, both globally and locally. And this opening comes as its flagship program, Report for America, which strives to place 1000 reporters in the field across America by 2024, has just been short-listed for a transformative $100 million grant through the MacArthur Foundation’s 100&Change. The intense, global competition for this grant underscores that Report for America’s sustainable and scalable model is now internationally recognized for its ability to address a deep systemic problem around the collapse of trusted, local news. The COO will oversee key administrative functions, including Finance, HR and IT, while partnering with the CEO, the executive leadership team, and the Board of Directors in formulating current and long-range strategies and objectives. The successful candidate will drive performance and ensure that these strategies create a platform for continued success.
