You’ll join a team dedicated to rigorous, data-driven enterprise journalism at The Philadelphia Inquirer. On your own and working collaboratively with others, you’ll produce ambitious journalism that proves its claims and tells new stories in new ways. In addition to reporting and writing stories, you’ll conceive and execute new ways of telling them online.
What You’ll Do
You’ll join an interdisciplinary team at the Inquirer, built to produce enterprise journalism anchored by data. The three-member team is responsible for generating stories that use computational methods to illuminate the world around us and contextualize the news.
We are looking for a hybrid reporter and developer with an interest in the start-to-finish production of ambitious, data-driven journalism that proves its claims. That means you’ll help discover stories, analyze data, report stories, create data visualizations, and produce the stories. Because we’ll work constantly with reporters and editors from across the newsroom, you’ll need a demonstrated desire to collaborate.
This position will focus on three primary objectives:
We’re looking for someone familiar with data, with a front-end web development background (including design, development, and deployment), general back-end knowledge, and experience with a programming language such as R or Python. But you won’t have to do everything on your own. You’ll have support from a team of designers, news developers and product engineers.
Don’t think you need to have every skill listed. Programming and data are constantly changing, so we value creativity, open-mindedness, critical thinking, and a willingness to learn over expertise in any specific technology. We’re interested in what you’ll be able to do, not just what you currently know or have previously done.
