  • Ability to implement and execute Rewire News Group’s voice across all platforms;
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills;
  • Commitment to learning and professional development;
  • Ability to multitask, work well under pressure, and deftly juggle multiple competing priorities;
  • Self-starter with a strong work ethic and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively, as well as take direction and critique—all in a remote environment;
  • A passion for reproductive rights, health, and justice;
