The Wall Street Journal is seeking a data journalist to lead its expanding economics team into a new era of innovation in the presentation of news and analysis. This person will conceive and execute ambitious projects—some in a matter of hours, others over days—to illuminate the Journal’s economics coverage on its Real Time Economics site.
The journalist will serve as the in-house data artist, transforming often complex subjects into simple yet striking visual displays. The journalist will find ways to make data come alive for investigative projects and enterprise stories, both solo and in collaboration with other reporters. This person must be able to sort quickly through complex economic and demographic data.
