The Kyiv Independent – Ukraine’s biggest English-language publication, is looking to fill a U.S. election contributor position.

In 2024, aiding Ukraine will be among the most pressing issues in U.S. domestic politics. With pivotal U.S. presidential and parliament elections scheduled for November, the question of whether Kyiv will receive enough support to win the war remains open.

The Kyiv Independent is looking for a U.S.-based contributor to write news stories, analytical pieces, and features about U.S. elections with a Ukrainian focus. The candidate would need to have a deep understanding of both the U.S. political process and Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Responsibilities:

  • Pitching and writing exclusive, well-reported, well-structured stories for the Kyiv Independent about the ongoing U.S. election campaign;
  • Proactively leading the coverage of the U.S.;
  • Discovering untold stories and fresh angles; breaking news.

Requirements:

  • Experience in covering the U.S. politics as a journalist;
  • Deep understanding of U.S. domestic affairs;
  • Deep understanding of Russia’s war against Ukraine; closely following Ukrainian news;
  • English language proficiency (C1-C2 or native speaker);
  • Devotion to the values of independent journalism.

We offer:

  • Market-level compensation;
  • Working with a young and highly motivated team in an award-winning media outlet;
  • Busy but flexible work schedule.
