The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) is a growing, global nonprofit media organization that is reinventing investigative journalism for the public good. By developing and equipping a global network of investigative journalists and publishing their stories, we expose crime and corruption so the public can hold power to account. We see a future where organized crime and corruption are drastically reduced and democracy is strengthened. Our global team includes editors, researchers, data engineers, security specialists, administrators, technologists, and strategists, each with areas of in-depth expertise.

Position overview

The Research Team is the brain power behind OCCRP ID, a service that helps investigative journalists in the OCCRP network conduct research quickly and effectively. You will join a team of expert researchers who use a combination of commercial search engines and databases, as well as experience to make use of publicly available open sources, to help journalists track down people, companies and assets anywhere in the world. As the OCCRP network expands into South Asia, we are seeking an experienced researcher with extensive knowledge of tracking down public records in the region (specifically, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Pakistan and Bangladesh) to support our partners and projects. We are looking for someone with a proven track record of doing investigative research and are open to candidates coming from journalism, law, finance or a related field.
