Full Time Job
Across our organization, we’re building a workplace where collaboration is essential, diverse voices are heard, and inclusion is the key to our success.
NPR’s News Apps/Graphics team is looking for a civic-minded graphics editor to join our team for a 6-month contract, working on information graphics, data visualizations and special story presentations. This job is remote, working from anywhere in the United States.
Members of our team wear many hats — designer, reporter, data wrangler, developer, cartographer, etc. We work closely with various journalists and storytelling units around the NPR organization, including photographers and video journalists, beat reporters and show producers, copy editors, digital editors and engagement editors. And we have a mission: to help our broad national audience better understand the world around them.
What we are looking for:
• Strong news judgement and a sense for what makes a good visual story that serves the audience
• Strong communication skills to coordinate with colleagues across the newsroom, understand quickly-changing news situations and explain complex information to diverse audiences
• A team player willing to collaborate in an open environment, working with people across the newsroom with a variety of skill sets and areas of expertise
• Demonstrated initiative and self-starting skills; ability to work independently
• Sincere curiosity, attention to detail and enthusiasm for making things
• A passion for internet-native storytelling
• A genuine and friendly disposition
• Help our audience understand issues in the news through visual storytelling methods, which may include information graphics, data visualization, interactivity and illustration
• Work closely with individual story producers, editors and other teammates to identify opportunities for visual storytelling and data visualization
• Assess what work realistically can be executed in the time available and meet agreed-upon deadlines
• Uphold and extend existing design standards for NPR graphics and editorial projects
• Document your work for teammates, newsroom colleagues and/or external audiences, as relevant
• Coach other team members, articulating story, design and code suggestions in a helpful and supportive way
• Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience
• At least one year of experience in news design (or a similar field)
• Solid news judgment and the ability to think in terms of the information needs of the audience
• Proven success implementing complex designs in HTML/CSS
• Experience with Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch or other design/visual prototyping software
• Demonstrated experience applying user-centered design thinking to editorial work
• Experience with GIS/mapping software such as ArcMap or QGIS
• Familiarity with data analysis techniques, especially in command-line or scriptable environments like Jupyter Notebook
• Experience working with the Git version control system
