Dow Jones Media is looking for a graphics editor to join a new multidisciplinary team working with multiple newsrooms. The candidate must have an eye for design and ability to distill complex information and tell stories using clear visual elements. The role involves working closely with reporters and editors to conceptualize and produce stories and visual elements for the web, mobile and third-party platforms. The editor is encouraged but not required to pitch stories.
Candidates for this role must be experienced with data visualization. The editor should know the rules for understanding and presenting data that isn’t misleading, and know when to break those rules. An interest in spreading the gospel of good data visualization to the rest of the newsroom is as important as data analysis, Adobe Illustrator and demonstrated experience in adapting visualizations across platforms. Other skills which would be useful but not necessary are front-end web development, cartography, 3D modeling, proficiency in Photoshop, animation and other code experience. Reporting experience is a plus, and at least some writing to give context and connect visual elements is required.
The reporter will be part of an autonomous team that collectively includes a range of skills such as data analysis and visualization, illustration, coding and design. Members of the team will collaborate with reporters and editors across our publications on stories long and short with a focus on how we present information and tell stories to readers in our products and other platforms. Members of the team must be self-motivated and creative to approach stories from different angles, experiment and use data to learn from the results.
Dow Jones Media is a publishing group within Dow Jones that includes MarketWatch, Barron’s, Financial News, Mansion Global and Heat Street.
Applications should include a resume and cover letter.
