We’re growing and will be expanding our team in every department.

Civil Beat launched last May and today is Hawaii’s largest organization exclusively dedicated to public affairs reporting. We will be adding a software engineer, an editor and an operations director to help support our growth. We are also looking for reporter-hosts for future opportunities.

We are looking for a technical star with a passion for journalism to join our technology team, led by Publisher and eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. If you like building new, innovative technologies, especially ones that elevate the quality of journalism, Civil Beat is the place for you.

We’re looking for a second assistant editor with a deep understanding of Hawaii to help expand our coverage. We’ve been broadening the diversity of content on our news service and publishing perspectives from more members of our community. This editor will lead this initiative.

As more and more people are using the site, demands are increasing on the business operations side. We are looking for a hands-on operations director to oversee the day-to-day business, support new initiatives and make sure our customers are happy.

We’re also looking for reporters interested in becoming members of our investigative news team. Candidates should have a passion for civic affairs journalism.

If you’re interested, please send a resume (PDF format, please) to resumes@civilbeat.com.

A good reason not to give

We know not everyone can afford to pay for news right now, which is why we keep our journalism free for everyone to read, listen, watch and share. 

But that promise wouldn’t be possible without support from loyal readers like you.

Make a gift to Civil Beat today and help keep our journalism free for all readers. And if you’re able, consider a sustaining monthly gift to support our work all year-round.
