New Times / Job Openings


New Times is looking for its next photographer (20 hours a week, $14/hour). We can promise you two things. You will have super-awesome workmates, and every day will be different. We’re searching for a photog with journalism in his or her blood: Someone who gets a little adrenaline rush when chasing a story that can only be captured once. A lens that has the ability to shoot creatively on the fly and nail those candid personal moments that reveal the emotion of a life or situation. A person who knows what it takes to tell a story—whether it’s through print, video, social media messages, or an online slideshow.

Think you can do it? Prove it.
