    Perform is seeking a Digital Journalist to join its Charlotte-based U.S. News team.

    The formal job description and link to apply are here: Digital Journalist (US0256) | Perform Group Careers

    To put a finer point on it for this group, we are looking for someone a step above entry level — at least a year or two of experience, preferably including some copy editing. This person will work mostly nights and weekends after training is complete and must have strong news judgment and the confidence to make calls on what is and isn't a story — and then successfully write that story or line-edit a colleague's. We're an international company, so please be sure to mention any experience/expertise with sports that go beyond the core U.S. offerings (golf/soccer/boxing/etc.) as that could come in handy for us.

    While the bulk of our team is in Charlotte and we may end up basing the hire here, we're interested in exploring the possibility of having someone in a major city in the Pacific or Mountain time zones (L.A., Bay Area, Seattle, Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas) as a way to stretch our days out a bit and better coordinate with our global team. This is mostly an aggregation/curation position, but there will be opportunities for original content and occasional on-site coverage (hence the preference for someone in a larger metropolitan area).

    There will be video-related aspects to the job, including sourcing video and potentially booking freelance videographers for event coverage, but this position is more editorial-focused.

    Any questions, let me know.
