Work with us

The Tributary is a startup nonprofit, nonpartisan outlet investigating Jacksonville’s entrenched problems, one topic at a time. We’re committed to doing the sort of in-depth, expensive investigations that local news often misses. We work in collaboration with existing local news outlets — print, radio, TV and digital. We don’t cover the everyday humdrum of breaking news. Instead, we prioritize stories that wouldn’t get told without us.

The Tributary is committed to the ideals of workplace democracy, governed by an independent Board of Directors. That means everyone participates in developing the organization’s budget, policies and compensation. All workers will collaboratively set the direction of the Tributary with the Board.

Our core values include diversity, equity and inclusivity. Practicing what we preach is essential to shaping a newsroom capable of reporting the kind of stories that are missing in our community. Northeast Florida is diverse, and a diversity of race, gender and other backgrounds enrich our journalism. Even if you don’t exactly meet the qualifications listed below, you may still be a candidate for this position. Please let us know how your skills, experience and background have prepared you for this role in your cover letter.

Currently, we don’t have any open positions, but if you’re interested, feel free to reach out at so we can let you know when we have future openings.
