Employment With Texas Scorecard

Texas Scorecard exists to promote informed civic engagement and the principles of self-governance through enterprise reporting on public policy, politics, government, and culture. We’re always excited to connect with men and women who share a passion for public policy and an interest in serving their fellow Texans. We hire people who are passionate about the cause, not just looking for a job.

Before anyone will be considered for employment of any sort, they must be able to hold to our Brand Promise (which is found at the bottom of every page of this website) and our Statement of Culture found on this page. If this describes you, and the kind of place where you might fit in, then we would love to hear from you.

Unless otherwise indicated, please send a cover letter and your resume to jobs [@] TexasScorecard.com. Be sure to include that you have read about our cultural values, and include any questions or comments you might have about them in your cover letter.
