Job Description
Temporary Visuals Editor Pool

ProPublica is an independent, nonprofit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.

This is a ProPublica candidate pool posting. Hiring teams access this information when there is a need, and select candidates receive notice of their advancement. To apply for a specific role, please view our open jobs on the careers page.

ProPublica is looking for creative, empathetic and ambitious visuals editors to work with our editorial visuals team on a temporary basis.

ProPublica's investigative journalism does more than expose wrongdoing and injustice; we intend for it to spark real-world change. The freelance visuals editor will work closely with reporters, editors and the rest of the visuals team to find compassionate, incisive and original approaches to story presentation. We are looking for freelancers with experience commissioning and editing photography and other forms of visual storytelling, including editorial illustration.

We're looking for someone with:
• Confidence commissioning photographers and visual artists.
• Experience commissioning or creating editorial illustrations.
• Confidence with wire and archival photo research, as well as competency understanding usage rights and copyright.
• Strong time, project management and organizational skills. Because this is a remote-first news environment, ideal candidates should be confident independently working on multiple projects on deadline.
• Experience working with a modern web-based CMS like WordPress or Craft is a plus.

This is a full time temporary position. ProPublica is based in New York, but we're open to remote candidates. Applicants must be eligible to work in the US

The expected pay rate is $50 per hour.

If all of this sounds exciting to you, you can apply using this form. The most important part of the application, by far, are your work examples. Typically that means your portfolio, but if you don't have one, please send links or screenshots of projects you've worked on or contributed to in some way and describe your role in detail. You don't have to have been the lead. We want to know what worked, what might not have and how your contribution fit into the context of what was needed for the project.

We know there are great candidates who may not fit into what we've described above or who have important skills we haven't thought of. If that's you, don't hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.

We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. (Here is a breakdown of our staff.) We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ+ people and people with disabilities. We are an equal opportunity employer and prohibit discrimination and harassment of any kind. All employment decisions are made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age or any other status protected under applicable law.
