Fact-checking journalism is the heart of PolitiFact. Our core principles are independence, transparency, fairness, thorough reporting and clear writing. We give citizens the information they need to govern themselves in a democracy.

PolitiFact has the largest team of fact-checkers and misinformation fighters in the U.S. And we want you on our side. Below is a list of open positions on our team.

We are committed to diversity and an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply for this position. PolitiFact has offices in both St. Petersburg, Florida, and Washington, D.C. 

Fact-Checking Reporter - We're looking for an experienced, energetic fact-checker to help us debunk online misinformation and squash viral hoaxes. This reporter will attack fast-spreading claims about issues in U.S. politics with tenacity, speed and grit. (Posting is closed but email [email protected] and put "hiring inquiry" in the subject line)

Audience Engagement Producer - This person will play a crucial role in maintaining our connections with readers as well as drawing in new ones. Applicants should have ideas for innovative ways to tell and promote stories and fact-checks through platform-specific strategies. 

Summer 2022 Intern - Our internship is open to journalism students preparing for their junior or senior year of college. Interns write stories that hold politicians accountable for their words and promises, and they help us debunk social media hoaxes and myths. (Posting is closed.
