tronc – Why Work For Us?

What do we do?

We draw content from our vast media portfolio, where the search for truth and dedication to our communities have earned 58 Pulitzers. We maintain the highest values of journalism while merging that content with an arsenal of digital tools. With them, we can exponentially enhance visual storytelling, catapult our ability to track and engage our audience and offer world-class journalism with a cutting-edge delivery system.

How are we different?

No other media company can match the power of our brands and the power of our technology. No other media company surpasses the brilliance of our content and the brilliance of a digital delivery system that makes content easier to consume across every platform. No other media brand is so intellectually distinguished and radically distinct at the same time. And the journey is only beginning.

Why do we exist?

To transform journalism, offering the world a new model of media companies. Where ingenious technology allows a storied portfolio of storytelling to be pooled, personalized and presented to every person on Earth at the speed of light. We are on a mission to scrupulously maintain the integrity and values of each journalistic brand while enhancing our ability to share and visualize our content.

What problem are we trying to solve?

In a media landscape ravaged by disruption, journalism retains its depth, credibility and trust, but has been slow to mobilize the full thrust of cuttingedge digital management tools. Digitally native enterprises, on the other hand, can harness such tools but can’t offer the substance of traditional journalism. So far, no one has cracked the code on how to merge the two worlds.

We're always searching for enthusiastic, talented and innovative professionals to fill our ranks. We employ more than 7,000 people across the United States working for some of the world's most iconic brands. We offer a strong array of opportunities to reach new heights in diverse careers, such as digital, technology, reporting, and sales to just name a few. We're the perfect mix of storied tradition and cutting edge innovation.

If you're interested in an exciting career with an established and respected multi-media company, we invite you to explore what tronc has to offer.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at tronc (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.


    I was contacted via email by the recruiter. We set up a phone interview. That went well so she set up an interview with two team leads at Tronc for the following week! I meet each team lead and had two separate interviews. They were both so informative and friendly.
    Waiting on call back.
