We are looking to hire a Data Reporter at NJ Advance Media.

This is an exciting role, joining an award-winning group of local journalists from diverse backgrounds that have a track record of stories that make change and show Jersey life in a different way. We’ve written day-to-day data news, used tools to connect readers to their town, visualized complex stories and created databases to investigate abuse of power in New Jersey.

The successful candidate will be a person comfortable with all kinds of data sets, including Census and Election results information, and with the imagination to tell stories in a smart and engaging manner. That person will work across coverage areas, collaborating on short and long-term reporting.

Specific skills would include the ability to make custom graphics, news apps and to scrape data off the web that does not want to be scraped.

  • At least 2 years of reporting experience
  • Ability to work independently under deadline pressure and prioritize tasks appropriately
