Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

We have an immediate opening for an editorial assistant. This is a full-time, entry-level position, perfect for a hyper-organized self-starter who can successfully juggle tasks ranging from crafting short blog posts to managing listings to monitoring the provisions in the newsroom beer fridge, all while working independently on long-term projects that keep this website functioning and robust.

Ideal candidates will have a college degree; excellent organizational and communication skills; a sense of humor; a deep well of patience; and some other attributes that make us think, Hey, we would maybe like to see you every day. Applicants should already live in or have ties to Dallas. This is a full-time job with benefits.

Interested? Send a resume, cover letter and a list of references to Joe Tone, editor, at joe.tone@dallasobserver.com with "Editorial Assistant" in the subject line. Not that interested but want to work with us in some other capacity? Check out our contributors guide.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
