Business Insider/Insider seeks an investigations reporter

November 18, 2020

Posted by Erica Thompson

Business Insider and Insider are hiring a reporter to join the investigations team.

The Insider investigations team delivers high-impact, deeply reported journalism to both the Business Insider and Insider audiences. We’ve broken stories on Jeffrey Epstein’s ties to prominent financiers, the toxic culture at Mike Bloomberg’s company, allegations of assault inside Mark Zuckerberg’s family office, denial of healthcare inside New York prisons during the COVID-19 outbreak, and much more. We also assist, and frequently collaborate with, other reporters and editors in the growing Insider Inc. newsroom. Our scope is expanding, and we want to further staff up our team.

We are looking for a reporter to help us bring effective and meticulously reported stories to life. The ideal reporter will be obsessed with solving mysteries of all kinds, relentless in tracking down sources and leads, and comfortable working in a highly collaborative environment. They should be eager to learn all the methods of the trade, including archival research, open-source intelligence, records requests, and old-fashioned reporting.

Other skills that would make a candidate successful in this role:

  • An inexhaustible well of curiosity
  • A sense of esprit de corps
  • A knack for getting people to tell you things they probably shouldn’t
  • Sharp analytical skills
  • A love of chasing paper
  • A hunger to dig into under-reported stories
