Disrupt the media industry status quo by joining our hyperlocal monthly print publication.

Yes, we pride ourselves on being a print-first media outlet, and our success proves we are influencing the future of news.

Community Impact Newspaper delivers 22 hyperlocal editions to 1.7 million homes throughout the Austin, Dallas and Houston areas. Each of the markets we serve has its own dedicated editorial, sales and design staff, just like a small, traditional community newspaper.

But we’re not small at all. We are a 200-person news enterprise that produces it own product—our printing plant opened in 2016. Editorial teams get their own Apple laptops, digital camera and other resources that only a growing newspaper company could provide.

Why are we so successful? We believe most people don’t want right- or left-leaning news—just the news, and preferably from their own backyard. Since 2005, we have provided local, useful news without any ulterior motive or agenda.

Reader feedback and independent surveys prove our readers appreciate this dedication to truth-telling. Come work here and find out for yourself.

More details about the opportunity:

• Represent a community: Pearland/Friendswood Editor

• Earn a living: Starting at $42,000, more with experience

• Experience required: At least 2 years of prior experience with print or digital publication(s)

• Represent us: Develop rapport with community leaders, business owners, elected officials, and the Average Joe and Jane residents we serve

• Create content daily: Inform readers online between the print editions

• Generate original story ideas: You’re afforded time to develop the story beyond the story

• Create complex infographics: Our visuals tell a story, so we spend a ton of time on them

• Take your own photographs: You’re a one stop shop—you report, write and shoot

• Wear multiple hats: Report, write and manage content

• Supervise talent: Mentor at least 1 reporter in a team environment

What we’re looking for:

• First-rate reporting and writing skills

• Comfort with writing news, features and alternative story formats

• Ability to analyze and interpret news events

• Expert AP Style knowledge

• Social media savvy

• Effective headline writing

• Excellent organizational and time-management skills

• Experience using digital tools such as Google tools, Adobe products and Microsoft Office
