Work for Us

Come help us build the future of food media.

The Counter is an award-winning nonprofit newsroom.

We cover the economic, political, and cultural forces shaping American food.

We’re continuously looking for journalists and media leaders to join our staff and post relevant opportunities on this page.

For our freelancing guidelines, see here.

The window to apply for our Future of Farming and Recovery Project Fellowships has now closed. Thanks to all applicants. If you’re selected for an interview, you’ll hear from us by April 16.

And stay tuned: We expect to post another opportunity in early June.

The Counter is committed to identifying and addressing forms of systemic inequality that pervade the American food system—as well as food media itself. Read a statement from our editor about our ongoing work to improve equity and representation within our organization.
