Dow Jones Visual Journalist in TORONTO, Ontario

Job Description:

Dow Jones Media is looking for a visual journalist to join a new multidisciplinary team working with multiple newsrooms. Ideal candidate must have an eye for design and ability to distill complex information and tell stories using clear visual elements. The role involves working closely with reporters and editors to conceptualize and produce stories and visual elements for the web, mobile and third-party platforms. The journalist is encouraged but not required to pitch stories.

Candidates for this role should be well-practiced in TWO of these areas: illustration, data visualization, design or front-end web development. Other skills which would be useful but not necessary are cartography, 3D modeling, data analysis, proficiency in Photoshop and/or Illustrator, animation and other code experience. Reporting experience is a plus, and at least some writing to give context and connect visual elements is required. Most importantly, the role requires a strong curiosity, excellent communication skills and practiced time management.

The journalist will be part of an autonomous team that collectively includes a range of skills such as data analysis and visualization, illustration, coding and design. Members of the team will collaborate with reporters and editors across our publications on stories long and short with a focus on how we present information and tell stories to readers in our products and other platforms. Members of the team must be self-motivated and creative to approach stories from different angles, experiment and use data to learn from the results.
