Overview

Investigative Reporter

The South Florida Sun Sentinel seeks an investigative reporter to join our project team. 


Tribune Publishing is committed to hiring people with diverse backgrounds, voices and visions. Be yourself. Bring yourself. Because that’s the only way we will deliver on our mission to provide meaningful journalism to the diverse communities we serve. We hold ourselves accountable for fostering inclusion and opportunity across race, gender, age, creed, identity and experience. Join us.

 

 

Responsibilities

Candidates should be self-starters and creative idea-generators who can consistently deliver thorough reporting and powerful writing. They should be as comfortable working independently as they are collaborating on team projects. 

Successful applicants should have a proven ability to:

  • Generate highly relevant, innovative project ideas with strong potential for impact.
  • Develop human sources long term and on the fly.
  • Resourcefully use public records.
  • Crunch data on a basic level, with an aptitude to grow those skills further.
  • Deliver bulletproof, seamless reads.
  • Think beyond the traditional narrative and work closely with our interactive and visual teams for ambitious multimedia storytelling.  

Qualifications

Our team is committed to high-impact journalism and we’ve won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service twice in the past decade. We are hungry to continue that level of work, but we don’t want to do it the same way we’ve always done. We are eager to innovate, and we welcome the new ideas our new colleague will bring.

Applications should include a cover letter, resume, examples of past investigative work, and at least three project ideas with a summary of why the story is important, what it would take to get it, and potential obstacles and results.

Please apply to Managing Editor Dana Banker, dbanker@sunsentinel.com, by 9 a.m. ET on Monday, Nov. 22.
