Bloomberg seeks a data visualization reporter

May 3, 2024

Posted by Chris Roush

The Bloomberg News Data Visualization team is seeking a Data Visualization Reporter who uses illustrations and graphics to tell data-driven stories, both to explain news as it unfolds and in longer-term, ambitious visual narratives. We value people who are eager to collaborate with team members and across the newsroom, and who contribute their own independent reporting and creative ideation.

We’re looking for someone who is able to conceptualize visual stories that integrate data and illustrations. You should be able to work across a range of styles — from technical drawings and renderings to figurative and abstract illustrations. We welcome experience with a range of visual forms, such as mixed media, animation, comics, creative coding, 3D modeling or anything else that could help us tell ambitious visual stories.

Our team is highly collaborative and we seek people who are motivated to work with others and to pitch in when news events unfold — both planned and unplanned. We encourage each other and share our ideas and knowledge, and we expect that you’ll share your knowledge of techniques and tools to encourage other team members using illustration in their storytelling.

You should have prior experience working in news. You’ll have the support of other editors and journalists across our highly-collaborative global graphics team, and your ability to jump into projects and apply your illustration skills will help the team take ownership of visually compelling stories.


  •   Rely on your exceptional curiosity, technical prowess and design sensibilities to create informative illustration and graphics in response to news events, both planned and unplanned
  •   Collaborate with team members and newsroom colleagues to report on news events as they evolve and identify opportunities for illustrative storytelling for in-depth features and investigative pieces
  •   Work efficiently under tight deadlines to cover news events
  •   Possess experience or interest in topics core to Bloomberg News coverage — including business, finance, markets, economics, technology, and government matters


    •   Experience reporting and crafting visual narratives with illustrations
    •   Strong sense of visual design, layout and typography, as well as familiarity with design software, including Adobe Illustrator and Figma
    •   Experience in data visualization and capable of making charts and maps, or willing to learn
