You work well with others & bring a diverse skill set that affords liaising with the whole newsroom & FiscalNote's R&D group. You might not be able to build a billions-of-records data system that auto populates with machine learning, but you understand the concepts behind that work, so you can instruct non-journalist engineers to build such projects. You also know how to leverage large datasets to find untold stories. You bring a healthy blend of elevating the work of those around you & staying focused on your own unique contributions. You're able to manage your time to do both effectively.
You've managed big, long projects in the past but understand the value of daily content too.
You're interested in pursuing journalism that impacts average Americans by uncovering previously unreported stories about the people & place that represents them.
