Graphics and Visualizations Editor
About the Role
Gizmodo Media Group (GMG), which is part of Univision's digital arm, Fusion Media Group, is seeking an experienced and creative graphics and visualizations editor to work across all eight of our web properties. The ideal candidate will understand and appreciate the approach and tone of GMG publications, and have sharp, innovative ideas about how to translate our reporting and writing into data-driven charts, infographics, maps, interactives, and other visuals. Since this is a new role at GMG, the right person will also be someone who can develop and implement best practices and a consistent aesthetic for graphics across our sites. They should also have a broad news sensibility, and the ability to work across diverse subject areas--think everything from consumer tech to politics to tennis. Expect to work closely with our editorial teams, as well as our art director and product team.
The ideal candidate will:
- Have at least 2 years experienced working in graphics and data-driven storytelling in a digital newsroom.
- Display a deep understanding of data and statistics, and, most importantly, how they can help our editorial teams tell better, more informative stories.
- Have a keen eye for design and aesthetics, from chart style to font size.
- Be creative, organized, enterprising, collaborative, and thick-skinned.
Please submit at least three links to your work as part of your application cover letter, as well as at least three ideas for graphics and visualizations that could have accompanied recent GMG stories.
