  • General Assignment Reporter, Billy Penn (Philadelphia)
    Billy Penn
    Philadelphia, Pa

    We’re looking for an experienced, innovative professional to work as a general assignment reporter. This reporter will help maintain the site’s tone, tenor and content mix by creating original work that can’t be found elsewhere, and keeping tabs on what Philadelphia is talking about online and off.

    The ideal candidate can pitch a month’s worth of ideas at a time, produce an informed, focused article on short notice and float between topics as necessary. We’re looking for someone who can analyze the accessibility of Eagles ticketsexplain the shortcoming of Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program and eat 14 tacos for the sake of journalism. Top candidates will know exactly when and how to be funny in their reporting, and how to be skeptical without insulting.

    If you want to write about what a politician said at a press conference, this job isn’t for you. If you can share six digestible takeaways from a panel about development and gentrification, keep reading.

    What you’ll do

    • Report and write compelling original stories that aren’t being covered elsewhere
    • Find stories in the people and things you encounter every day
    • Get comfortable in communities that might not look like yours
    • Fact-check quotes, claims and campaigns of politicians whose work impacts Philadelphia
    • Help establish Billy Penn’s brand across the city via social media, live events and other means
    • Pitch ideas and always have several backups ready to go

    What you won’t do

    • Spend every Thursday in City Council Chambers
    • Write crime briefs
    • Report on a beat
    • Produce a lot of longform content. Though opportunities may come up, this is a fast-paced environment. Think short magazine features with internet deadlines.

    We’re looking for

    • At least 2 years’ experience as a reporter for a digital news outlet
    • A strong track record of using social media to find and draw audience around news — we’ll be reviewing your account activity
    • Halloween costume ideas
    • A commitment to collaboration, both inside and outside the organization
    • Someone who understands Philly and lives here, or has roots here
    • A positive attitude and a willingness to jump in at any moment

    About Billy Penn

    We’re a small, digital news outlet that covers Philadelphia and hosts events around the city (happy hours, pop-ups, scavenger hunts and more). You’ll be part of a seven-person staff that works very collaboratively in person and over Slack, and coordinates some efforts with our sister sites in Pittsburgh and Denver. We’re Philly natives and transplants, bikers and transit users, always on the hunt for a Lyft discount.

    We love Philly, and everything we do — from our stories to our events — reflects that. That could be an event to discuss the latest State of the City report from Pew, a critical analysis of Philly’s discriminatory cash bail system or an annual roundup of 10 huge wins for the city.

    We like to work with people who are as passionate about Philly as we are, who will get just as mad as we do when a Facebook commenter starts a sentence with how long they’ve lived here, who will taste-test soft pretzels and then cover the winning dough in lacquer and hang it on a wall (yep), who will eat a 20-course mealride a bike with pool noodles on it, and compare fried chicken sandwiches. You in?

    How to apply

    Send .pdf resumes to jobs@billypenn.com with the subject line Reporter. Include links to your social media accounts, and a statement of interest. If you’re going to send us a cover letter, make it a great one.

    Billy Penn — along with our parent company Spirited Media — is an equal opportunity employer.

You’ll touch on everything from the arts, to food, to retail, to the outdoors and more. But the approach is focused. This is digital-first service journalism. Where are the best dog parks?

    We’re seeking journalists with great range and deep interest in contemporary culture and social dynamics to join a new team that explores how we live, work and talk to each other. This team isn’t just for news writers, or for features writers. We want journalists who do their best work straddling those lines, the sort of writer who might thoughtfully explore Philadelphia’s outlaw ATV culture, or bring an equally deft touch to the debates over speech on college campuses and the politics of the office refrigerator. We want stories that examine parenting, divorce, dating and life at home. We’re interested in the culture of cubicles, the factory line, the sales floor, and the other side of the counter at Dunkin’ Donuts.

    The ideal candidates will have proven reporting chops, a distinctive voice, and a clear sense of how best to find and frame stories that consistently connect with readers. We aspire to cover both what everyone is talking about and what nobody wants to confront, and that demands writers who know how to spot trends and identify fascinating stories. Strong writing is essential, as is the flexibility to move comfortably between writing modes. On this team, you’ll analyze, aggregate, use narrative, first person, write short, write long, take a point of view, employ data and more. Learn more here.

  • Lead Engagement Coordinator, Billy Penn
    Billy Penn
    Philadelphia, Pa

    Billy Penn is looking for an experienced, innovative professional to help build our audience. Our site was founded on the principle that we will always go where the audience is. With that, our social media and news curation strategies are constantly evolving.

    That’s where this job comes in, as we’re looking for someone who has that same passion for sharing news and information from all parts of this amazing city, to help us continue to reach new audiences. This role will help establish the site’s tone, tenor and content mix by linking directly to the most interesting and relevant news and information for and about Philly, creating quick posts for the website and identifying new audience strategies. The ideal candidate is a self-motivated, quick-thinking problem-solver who thinks like an editor, excels at customer service, and has a knack for spotting trends. If you want to aggregate other local media, we’re not for you. Interested in diving deep into Philly’s communities, sharing information no one else is and brainstorming ways to reach new audiences? Read on.

    What You’ll Do

    • Create and curate content for our mobile-first news platform, with an eye toward the most interesting stories in the city. Figure out how that information will best resonate with our users
    • Manage our brand accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, keeping Billy Penn’s voice strong and consistent, and engaging directly with those audiences
    • Help drive engagement across Philly’s news ecosystem with an emphasis, but not a monopoly, on our staff-created content. But don’t aggregate. Link! Share! Write thoughtful, clicky (but not clickbaity) headlines and social media hooks for the biggest stories in the city every day — everything from political corruption to concert announcements to long-awaited stop signs in a neighborhood
    • Experiment with storytelling forms that will resonate with our audience and catch on with new audiences across the city
    • Elevate stories in communities that aren’t represented every day in local and mainstream media, giving them a home on Billy Penn’s platform
    • Establish long-term connections with readers across diverse communities through curation and develop new ideas for coverage

    We’re Looking For

    • At least 2 years of experience in a relevant field, including journalism, marketing and branding
    • A strong track record of using social media to find and draw audience around news and information —  on your own social media accounts, and for brand accounts
    • A quick-thinker with a deep social media network who can elevate small stories for a larger audience
    • A knack for finding the viral stories before they go viral
    • An organized, detail-oriented person who can work on a highly regimented schedule, but knows when to be flexible and break the rules
    • A commitment to collaboration, both inside and outside the organization

    Who Are You

    Maybe you already live in Philly, or maybe you’re looking for a fresh start. Your current job is fine and all, but you’re looking for a more innovative environment where any idea is fair game. You think brand accounts should have a voice, be immersed in the communities they represent and engage regularly with them — and you’re up to the challenge of handling that. You think news needs to be more reader-driven and you have ideas about how to make that happen. Or you just want to work in a cool place with people who really care about what they do.

    Please send resumes, cover letters, and links to relevant work and social media accounts  to jobs@billypenn.com. All attachments should be .pdf or shared through Google Drive.
