Job Description:

The Utility Dive Sr. Reporter role is the perfect role for an experienced journalist who can lead our coverage of the power industry. 


The Sr. Reporter will regularly report and write high-impact stories that set the agenda for the industry. The ideal candidate will break news and deliver in-depth original stories to our audience of utility executives. We expect you to own your beat, pitch ideas and pursue ambitious stories based on your source building, keen observations and industry knowledge. 


The ideal candidate is well-sourced with federal agencies (FERC, DOE, EPA, etc.), wholesale markets, major power companies and other important industry stakeholders. The role will also represent the publication at industry events and speaking engagements. 


At Utility Dive, we live by the "team" concept. We experiment and we innovate. If you consider yourself a bit of rockstar because of your ability to get executives to call you back and a bit of a nerd because market structures and energy policy are your idea of stimulating conversation, we want to talk to you.


What can you bring to the table:

    • Proven business reporting and writing skills. Experience in energy and environmental journalism strongly preferred.
    • Strong industry sources.
    • Ability to produce content that resonates with a niche business audience.                     
    • Proven ability to break stories.
    • A clear interest in issues that impact a national audience of utility executives, including but not limited to wholesale markets and federal regulations.
    • An established audience on Twitter and LinkedIn to enhance the scope and reach of your work.
    • Deadline-oriented time management skills.
    • Bachelor's degree in journalism, English or similar field.
    • Experience level: 5 years at a minimum with at least 3 years of experience in business journalism.

Industry Dive is an equal opportunity employer and we strongly encourage people of color, LGBTQIA individuals, veterans, parents, and individuals with disabilities to apply.
