Are you a visual journalist with some serious coding chops? Are you a hacker with a passion for news, especially the data side of journalism? Do you love to craft experiences that help readers understand complicated and overwhelming amounts of information? Do you speak “journalism?”
We are hiring a data visualization programmer for the Boston Globe’s newsroom.
We want someone familiar with one or two front-end or back-end languages and frameworks and have a project or two that demonstrates an ability to take something from concept to completion … Extra credit for demonstrable experience with HTML5, CSS3 and responsive design.
This self-starter will get to cross-train, teach and share their skills with colleagues, collaborate with newsroom programmers, digital designers and site producers to build ambitious story presentations, and make cool stuff at one of the oldest, yet, forward-thinking news organizations in the country. For example, you could help users understand the health law mandate, reveal to Bostonians that they fish the eat in restaurants might be mislabeled, show the locations of deteriorating Massachusetts’s sea walls, and much more.
If the above describes you and you love the idea of being immersed in a fast-paced, buzzing newsroom, Apply! You are the person to do this job. Being a journalist for Boston.com and BostonGlobe.com is never boring. You will make a difference. Come work on the side of accountability.
