Job Description

Quick take: Axios is a growth-stage startup dedicated to providing trustworthy, award-winning news content in an audience-first format to readers around the country and locally, here in Charlotte. Axios Charlotte, formerly Charlotte Agenda, is hiring an Investigative News Reporter for an 18-month contract!

Why it matters: You’ll land daily scoops that build to big investigative reports for our website and daily newsletter on topics that matter for Charlotte readers — from affordable housing to the long-term ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic.

Go deeper: The Investigative Fellow will create big stories in a fast-growing, complex city.

  • You’ll hold the powerful accountable and be a voice for the vulnerable.
  • You’ll be as comfortable diving through documents as you are sitting with a struggling family or asking tough questions of officials.
  • Your stories will reach readers beyond the website and carry over to the Axios Charlotte Instagram account and our newsletter.
  • You’ll help make Charlotte a more honest, transparent, interesting city, and you’ll be driven by a desire to make it a better place to live.

Details: Ideal candidates will embody an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for Axios Charlotte’s mission. Candidates must demonstrate the ability to break stories and go deeper on long-range investigation projects. Ideal candidates will also have the following skills:

  • Experience in investigative journalism
  • Positive attitude and ability to thrive in high-pressure news environments
  • Highly collaborative mindset
  • An understanding of how to distribute coverage people care about across all our social handles, but especially Instagram
  • Commitment to the Axios mission and Smart Brevity style

Don’t forget:

  • Competitive salary: $70,000-$80,000
  • Terms: 18 months of employment through a Knight Foundation grant
  • Health insurance (100% paid for individuals, 75% for families)
  • Primary caregiver 12-week paid leave
  • 401K
  • Generous vacation policy, plus company holidays
  • Company equity
  • Commuter and cell phone benefit
  • A commitment to an open, inclusive, and diverse work culture
  • Annual learning and development stipend

Additional pandemic-related benefits:

  • One mental health day per quarter
  • $100 monthly work-from-home stipend
  • Tele-mental health services 
  • OneMedical membership, including tele-health services 
  • Increased work flexibility for parents and caretakers 
  • Access to the Axios “Family Fund”, which was created to allow employees to request financial support when facing financial hardship or emergencies 
  • Weekly company-sponsored exercise and meditation classes 
  • Virtual company-sponsored social events
