The Corpus Christi Caller-Times, part of the USA TODAY Network, seeks an energetic, 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 is dedicated to watchdog journalism and can tell stories beyond meeting coverage.

This is a job for a reporter who can cut through insider baseball to shed light on how all levels of government impact everyday lives. This reporter keeps an eye on the big picture of topics our audience cares most about and produces analytic, enterprise and investigative stories.

Applicants should have experience acquiring and analyzing data and obtaining exclusive information through filing public records requests.

We’re looking for someone who can develop a deep network of sources, has a skill for storytelling and enjoys working with a team. Someone who will break big news and hold public officials accountable.

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.

Spanish fluency is a plus, but not mandatory.

The Caller-Times pays competitive salary and excellent benefits. Corpus Christi sits on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, about three hours southwest of Houston and two hours south of San Antonio. The warm climate, beach, diverse population and rapid growth make Corpus Christi a dynamic area for telling great stories. Our staff consistently is among the top award winners in the region for a mid-sized daily.
