The Houston Chronicle

Investigative Reporter
The Houston Chronicle seeks an investigative reporter to expose abuses of power, uncover wrongdoing and hold our public institutions and leaders accountable. This journalist would be a member of the Chronicle’s investigative team, responsible for pursuing ambitious accountability journalism as well as providing deeper reporting on big breaking news events. The subject matter is wide-ranging, encompassing city, county and state government, public schools, law enforcement and more. This reporter must be collaborative, curious and aggressive. They should have a track record of navigating complex subjects and seamlessly analyzing data to uncover meaningful stories. The reporter also should have a history of breaking important stories through public record requests and a passion for digital interactives that offer alternative ways to present information. But the job is about more than just FOIAs and data. We want this reporter to know how to tell stories, how to write beautifully, how to ensure that people are always at the heart of our journalism.
