Bloomberg - Graphics Data Journalist

We’re seeking an experienced graphics journalist in Washington D.C. to design and build insightful data visualizations and interactive features. You will create graphics from pitch to publication—crafting your own ideas as well as collaborating with the wider newsroom on a variety of subjects. Your work will cross several platforms to inform and delight users of the Bloomberg terminal, Bloomberg.com and the Businessweek site and daily app.

The Bloomberg News Graphics Team is a tight-knit group of about 30 data journalists, researchers, designers and developers in New York; Washington, D.C.; London and Hong Kong.

Data drives everything that we do. Bloomberg’s extensive collection of proprietary data is a great starting point, but we also scrape, submit records requests or otherwise compile data sets from scratch to tell clear, compelling visual stories about business, markets, finance, technology, economics and politics.

We pride ourselves on pursuing novel visual forms and expect you to bring a distinctive design sensibility to the table. You should be exceptionally curious and have impeccable news judgment. We expect our graphics team to break news and investigate issues of consequence, and recognize that the more diverse our interests, areas of expertise and experiences, the better we’re able to do that. You will be asked to juggle projects of different lengths and handle deadlines with grace. And you should be an eager collaborator. We’re prone to crowding around our screens to solve problems and pushing each other to make great work.

As the graphics team for a global news organization of more than 2,500 journalists, there’s no shortage of work to do and no limit to the types of graphics we make. We’re looking for visual journalists who excel in what they do and can contribute to or expand on some of these things that are core to our work:

Responsibilities
- Many of us use R for data analysis, but we welcome those who prefer Python or other methods.
- We make lots of maps (we typically use QGIS, but we also have access to ArcGIS, Carto and other mapping tools).
- Much of our work is done via Illustrator and ai2html, but you should also have experience with modern HTML, CSS and JavaScript libraries (including D3, Canvas, WebGL or other rendering/animation libraries).
- And we’re always eager to explore innovative storytelling forms, so we welcome those who have experience with VR, 3D, illustration or anything else that can help us tell bold visual stories.

How to Apply:
If you think you’d be a good fit to join us, submit an application via our careers website and include a resume, a brief letter telling us about yourself and a portfolio that demonstrates a comprehensive understanding of data journalism and graphics design and development.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
