It’s why we have a newsroom that’s 1,700 strong and sends journalists to report on the ground from nearly 160 countries. It’s why we focus deeply on how our readers will experience our journalism, from print to audio to a world-class digital and app destination. And it’s why our business strategy centers on making journalism so good that it’s worth paying for.

The reporter should also be able to turn out analytical pieces, profiles, explanatory stories, and blog and briefing items for our live coverage. The reporter should be energetic, tenacious, collaborative, creative, and enthusiastic.
