Job Description

Senior Visual Editor (6 months contract)

The Day-to-Day
• Identify and pitch visual and data story ideas
• Partner with other editors and reporters to brainstorm visual coverage ideas and find gaps in current story planning. Plan proactively for major events and identify strong visual opportunities
• Assign and edit work by visual reporters and designers
• Edit and help execute visually led stories for daily, long form, and breaking news as well as longer term projects, including maps, charts, infographics, animations, and mobile first interactives
• Collaborate with the Visual News team to refine standards and best practices for storytelling forms including data visualizations, interactives, photography, illustrations, and animations

What you'll bring
• You are enthusiastic about excellent visual and data driven journalism and can share that enthusiasm with patience and clarity
• You put the journalism first, have impeccable news judgment, and are always asking ''what's the best way to tell this story?''
• A reader-first perspective and strong commitment to multiplatform storytelling
• You're comfortable working collaboratively, individually and with cross-functional teams
• You are an excellent communicator and feel as comfortable walking through a story pitch with editors as you do coaching a developer on an interactive interface.
• We're flexible on your exact skillset as long as you bring curiosity and willingness to learn. But you will ideally have some combination of editing experience, data analysis (R, Python, etc.), development and visualization skills (HTML, CSS, Javascript and JQuery, d3, three.js or other visualization libraries), mapping and graphics skills (Illustrator, AI2html, QGIS), and product design, user experience and prototyping skills (Sketch, Adobe XD, Zeplin, protpie, Flinto, Principle etc.).

At least five years' experience in a journalistic setting but likely more.

To apply, send a resume and cover letter to Mark Oliver at mark.oliver@cnn.com. Please include three links to projects that you've edited or worked on recently.
