    Overview

    If you eat data for breakfast and are on a first-name basis with people who handle public-records requests, we want to meet you. If you believe journalists have an obligation to hold public institutions accountable and your investigative work demonstrates that passion, you might be the next investigative reporter to join The Mercury News and the East Bay Times.

     

    We’re the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier news organization, and we’re ready to build on our proud tradition of watchdog journalism. Our turf includes 101 cities in nine counties, hundreds of agencies, America’s largest state government and tech companies that change the world. #BANG #Mid-Senior level

    Responsibilities

    We’re looking for an energetic and accomplished journalist who combines exceptional critical thinking skills with a strong foundation in finding and using data to underpin authoritative stories. Show us you’re as comfortable battling bureaucrats for records as you are working a source to get a story they've never told. Convince us you are a font of ideas and a phenom at making things happen -- always looking for answers, not explaining why things can’t be done.

    Qualifications

    The ideal candidate will have:

    • Three or more years experience as a working journalist
    • Clips, and the stories behind them, that show meaningful investigative success
    • The ability to juggle multiple stories of varying complexity
    • Proficiency at using social media to report and share stories
