The New York Times has tapped Bea Malsky to serve as a graphics/multimedia editor on the Weather Data team. In her new role, Malsky will “help gather, maintain and build systems for handling real-time and historic meteorological data for coverage of day-to-day weather and extreme weather events,” a Times release said.
“She will also help pursue enterprise stories to illuminate weather trends, dissect extreme-weather events and explain weather concepts to readers.”
Malsky joined the Times in 2020 to work with Interactive News on the pandemic data. She was part of the team that won the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
She also built tools and data pipelines for campaign finance data analysis, live election results and wildfire tracking. She served as a backend software engineer at New York Times Games.
Prior to the Times, she worked as a lead developer at civic tech consultancy at DataMade.
Malsky graduated from the University of Chicago.
