  • Produce/write/shoot/edit topic-based multimedia stories for The New Tropic

  • Are proactive and like solving problems
  • Are relentlessly curious about the world around them
  • Approach other people and challenging situations with empathy
  • Love Miami as much as we do

We’re more interested in working with great people than in lists of qualifications. If you want to work with us but don’t check all these boxes, that’s OK. We still want to hear from you. Candidates must be able to work full time in Miami.

Competitive compensation and benefits will be offered commensurate with experience.
