Lookout Santa Cruz 
seeks colleagues to join our evolving and growing team. Since launching, Lookout Santa Cruz has surpassed audience, membership and advertising goals. Most importantly, we are meeting our mission each day to provide all in Santa Cruz County a new, trustworthy source of news and information.

This page lists our current openings, and we are always open for inquiries from those who see themselves excelling in our new model. We are building a diverse, highly skilled and mission-driven group of journalists, community builders and business people intent on maintaining our culture of learning and growth.

We’ve built a lively, mobile-first, built-for-the-2020s model that is quickly winning wide reader, civic and business community adoption as a primary news source, one that is successfully competing with hedge-fund-depleted daily journalism. We’ve found a formula that is working, a new combination of traditional and contemporary, a model that is getting national attention.

We’re traditional, in the best sense of the word, becoming a strong local journalistic and business presence, serving local-first, high-quality, non-partisan news, information and connect-the-dots analysis.

We’re contemporary in the best sense. Our model is digital-born, embracing the phone as a primary means of delivery, and just beginning to exploit all the things that a local digital news-plus platform can uniquely do for and with our communities.

Founded by news industry veteran analyst Ken Doctor, we support one of the largest newsrooms per capita in the nation and we cover Santa Cruz County’s a full spectrum of news, entertainment and opinion coverage.
