Investigative Reporter

IndyStar is looking for an investigative reporter to join the nationally recognized team that exposed USA Gymnastics' failure to protect children from sexually abusive coaches. We want to take our coverage to the next level, so we're expanding the team and looking for someone with drive, intelligence and experience digging out stories that uncover wrong-doing and hold government responsible.

This reporter will work with a core team of three other investigative reporters, and a data reporter, on long-term, mid-term and quick-turn investigative projects/stories. Our ideal candidate has a proven track record of producing high-impact watchdog/investigative journalism and has at least five years of related experience. Expertise in public safety watchdog reporting is a plus.

Typical job duties/requirements:

  • Be an aggressive, relentless reporter who instinctively seeks documentation and requests public records
  • Consistently gain/build trust with sources
  • Consistently write with clarity and impact
  • Create databases
  • Work collaboratively and effectively in a team environment
  • Think critically and creatively to solve problems
