If you still have a million questions after learning the “who, what, when, where and how,” and have the drive to quickly and effectively get the answers, then this job is for you. TCPalm and Treasure Coast Newspapers, part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, seeks a curious, inquisitive, deep thinker who digs beyond the headlines and cares enough about the audience to answer the mantra: So what, who cares, what does it mean?

This reporter keeps an eye on the big picture of topics our audience cares most about and produces analytic, enterprise and investigative stories that explain how they affect people’s lives. Topics could include money, health, business and others, but this journalist is not bound by any topic.

This journalist’s goal is to break down and thoroughly explain topics in digitally innovative ways – even beyond the written word. How does a certain topic or issue affect those on the Treasure Coast and throughout Florida?

She or he will serve our local Treasure Coast audience from Vero Beach to Stuart, on Florida's east coast, as well as statewide and across the USA TODAY NETWORK, with five other digitally-focused newsrooms across the Sunshine State. The ideal candidate has at least 1-3 years of professional experience in a daily newsroom and a track record of strong enterprise, analysis and investigative work.

Data experience and innovative storytelling is a plus.
