So, you’re interested in working with Dexter Auction? That’s fantastic. As journalists, community leaders, volunteers and passionate readers who believe that local news ecosystems should be strong, we are always looking to connect with people who want to do it better.

Dexter Auction is guided by the values of truth, community and equity, and we work to create an inclusive, diverse and welcoming community between our staff, board members, and contributors. We are passionate about the profession of journalism and committed to understanding and employing the best practices available to us.

We are committed to an equitable workplace, because we know we can’t uphold our values in our journalism and community if we can’t do it in our own newsroom with our own team. We recognize that a crucial part of the failure of local news has been the collapse of local news business models. Our salaries are competitive, our benefits are pretty good (we’re always trying to improve them), and our work is inspiring.

Want to know more about what it's like to work at Dexter Auction? Hear Dexter Auction CEO and editor-in-chief Angilee Shah who gave a keynote talk with The Markup editor-in-chief Sisi Wei at the 2021 Independent News Sustainability Summit. They talked about how we are re-imagining the culture of newsrooms to be more supportive and sustainable for the journalists who work in them.
