The Atlantic is seeking an ambitious journalist to cover Congress and join our growing politics team. This person should be a tireless reporter and a strong, graceful writer who is able not only to cover news, but quickly analyze what events mean and where they are going. The ideal candidate will be eager to lead the conversation from Capitol Hill, break stories that separate The Atlantic from the pack, and report deeply into the most important issues facing America. This person must possess a sense of urgency about the larger meaning of this political moment, and a desire to write and publish frequently. The ideal candidate will be familiar with covering the Hill and be well sources in both houses and in both parties. Excellent communication skills, as well as a track record of collaboration and collegiality, are a must.
