We're looking for enterprising, aggressive reporters to cover the people, institutions and communities of the Twin Cities. These reporters are expected to chase breaking news, write daily stories, and produce enterprise reporting on multiple platforms. 

Solid news judgment, creative story ideas and an aggressive approach to news are requirements. Must have excellent writing skills. Must be able to juggle several stories at once, including daily stories and weekend enterprise.  Must possess a fluency in social media and digital story forms. The successful candidates value diversity in reporting and writing.

These reporters should be able to look beyond the agenda of a meeting and find the story that’s relevant to our readers. You're at ease holding elected officials and bureaucrats accountable. You write tightly and brightly for a wide readership, not for your sources. In addition, you should have a facility with or an intense interest in learning how data can inform or deepen your reporting. You must be able to move easily from breaking news to quick-turn enterprise. Some night and weekend shifts required.

You should bring a spirit of collaboration to the job. To put it another way: We're hiring you because we think you'll help make our newsroom better.
