Newspaper Designer

We are looking for an additional designer to join our amazing, award-winning layout team.

Production takes place once a month over several nights. You will be working with editors, artists and other designers. Knowledge of In-Design and familiarity with design theory are essential.

News Reporter

From its inception, The Indypendent has been a place where aspiring journalists have developed their skills by hitting the streets to tell the stories that matter to the lives of the 99%. If you love reporting and writing, The Indy is a great place to learn the craft and get good clips. Some prior reporting experience preferred.


Are you a professional photographer with an interest in social justice issues who would like to occasionally work outside the parameters of your regular assignments? Or, are you a talented, up-and-coming photographer who believes a better world is possible and also wants to get some good clips and show the kind of work you can do? If so, The Indy might be the place for you. We offer the chance to do both spot photography to accompany individual articles as well as photo essays that bring to life issues and struggles rarely acknowledged in the corporate media.

Movie Reviewer

If you love movies, are well-versed in film history and aesthetics, have left-leaning politics and like to write, The Indy could be the perfect home for you.

Book Reviewer

If you love great writing, are familiar with left history and social movements and believe that big ideas can be written about in clear, compelling prose, let’s talk.

Music Reviewer

What are the latest albums Indy readers should know about? Who are the amazing bands in NYC that almost no one has heard of but everyone ought to know about? Become an Indy music reviewer and let our readers know.

Box Watching

Love The Indy so much that you want to help take care of it? An ongoing need that we have is box-watching. Each month, our new issue is distributed to newspaper boxes all over the five boroughs. We ask that volunteers adopt a box that is on or nearby a travel route that they regularly use. By checking to make sure the box is clean and has papers in it every week, box watchers are a vital force in the paper’s circulation!
