Newsletter Writer, Back to Work

Job Description

The New York Times is seeking a talented writer for a new newsletter to address a unique and pivotal moment, as tens of millions of workers in the United States alone prepare to return to the office after more than a year at home.

We are looking for a candidate who can tackle a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:
  • The value of face-to-face communication with coworkers, balanced against the burdens of commuting and living in high-cost areas.
  • The brewing battle over hybrid working policies.
  • The changing balance of power between managers and workers.
  • The future of racial and gender equality in the workplace
  • The future of cities, transportation, urban cores, telecommuting, parenting, schooling and the eternal question of appropriate attire.


The job's primary responsibility will be a newsletter published three times a week, but it will also include contributions to the Times Business section and working collaboratively with colleagues across the newsroom.

Qualifications include:
  • At least five years experience as reporter or writer with relevant subject matter expertise
  • Proven ability to write in a conversational style
  • Experience writing newsletters is preferred but not required.
