Quartz seeks a reporter to help us commit acts of journalism with code.
You would be part of the growing Quartz Things team, which is chiefly responsible for our data-driven, visual, interactive and experimental journalism. From charts to interactive graphics, news apps to calculators, and distinctive approaches to written posts, “Thing” is simply our catchall term for stories that break free of the traditional words-based article formats.
We try to convey information in new ways that work better on the web. Developing those new storytelling methods—and empowering others to use them—is the challenge of this job.
We are looking for someone with a background in one or more of these fields: frontend web development, systems administration, statistics, machine learning, computer vision, data science, cartography, remote sensing, design, illustration, cartooning, 3D modeling, writing, and information architecture. Obviously—no one covers all of that ground.
We’re building a well-rounded team with a range of experience. Tell us what you would add, and what you want to learn, including skills that aren’t mentioned here.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and five links to relevant work.
