POLITICO strives to be the dominant source for politics and policy in power centers across every continent where access to reliable information, nonpartisan journalism and real-time tools creates, informs and engages a global citizenry.
What makes us Politico
Our Talent & Values
POLITICO’s mission from the very beginning was to win the audience. We dedicate ourselves to providing accurate, non-partisan, impactful information to the right people at the right time so that they can act with confidence and speed. And we prioritize efforts to obsessively serve, better understand, and grow our influential audience by creating innovative new products and tools that provide limitless value by helping to navigate tectonic shifts and disruption occurring across the globe.
We are driven by our values: we are relentless contributors, disruptors, collaborators, and talent cultivators.
Great journalism and great businesses require a great workplace. We seek passionate, collaborative, and respectful people. POLITICOs bring diverse backgrounds and excellence in what they do. Our culture is defined by relentless grit, total integrity, and a prioritization on innovation. We prioritize initiatives and programs that contribute to career development, push cross-functional partnership, and reward our talent with work life balance and other perks. We experiment to avoid being disrupted and we have fun disrupting others. And we are not afraid to risk failure if it means being the best at what we do.
We believe everyone – business development, engineering, product, editorial – is integral in doing it.
We are proud to offer...
- 12 weeks of fully paid parental leave
- Flexible vacation policy
- Competitive and comprehensive health, dental, and vision benefit packages
- 401(k) matching, commuter subsidy, cell phone service reimbursement
- Learning and development opportunities
- Access to building amenities, including onsite gym in our Rosslyn headquarters
We are committed to fostering a healthy and inclusive environment and offer comprehensive benefits for POLITICOs and their families. We encourage personal well-being for our employees through work-life balance and host wellness activities focused on preventative health.
At POLITICO, we build trust with our audience when employees lend their unique backgrounds and perspectives to the work we do. We are committed to diversity and make inclusivity a priority in our workplace. We encourage all to apply.
We give back to our community through our corporate giving initative, POLITICO Gives. Once a quarter, our Rosslyn HQ POLITICOs gather for an office-wide celebration. We host employee-organized sports leagues. We have a stocked café with Starbucks & Compass coffee, and snacks for all tastes and dietary preferences. You can have Doritos and fresh fruit salad – it’s all about balance.
