Hoodline has become one of the largest local news sites in San Francisco by covering street-level news using great technology, and we want your help as we take these efforts to the next level.

We have a project in the works that involves mapping all the city data we can get, including data sets from local technology companies and organizations that we’re starting to analyze for more story ideas and trends.

We’re also planning new features for our existing data tool, our content management system and our tipline, and more standalone products like our election endorsement guide

San Francisco is just the beginning. We’re going to be taking the tech and editorial model to more cities soon. 

We have both full- and part-time technical positions available. We believe that the best candidates for our team are talented self-starters who are looking for a challenge and meaning in what they build, who can think locally and build globally. We offer competitive compensation, early equity, product ownership and a ton of responsibility.

If you get excited about connecting people at the street level through better technology, and maybe helping to save local journalism in the process, we’d like to talk.

Open positions:

  1. Data Scientist | See details and apply.        
  2. Front-End Engineer | See details and apply.
  3. Data Analyst | Work with the editorial staff to dig into the data sets we get, and research interesting stories and trends about how cities really work. Candidates should be familiar with scripting languages, and with large and messy data sets — no editorial experience is necessary for this kind of database journalism.
