Graphics Developer

Careers at Bloomberg

New York, NY

Posted Jul 10, 2018 - Requisition No. 68031

We're seeking an experienced graphics developer in New York to conceptualize and build insightful data visualizations and interactive features - relying on your technical expertise, distinctive design sensibility and exceptional curiosity. You will have the opportunity to create features from pitch to publication, as well as collaborate with the wider newsroom on a variety of projects - from stories that unfold in minutes to months-long investigations.

The Bloomberg News Graphics Team is a tight-knit group of about 30 data journalists, researchers, designers and developers in New York; Washington, D.C.; London and Hong Kong. We break news, investigate issues of consequence and recognize that the more diverse our interests, areas of expertise and experiences, the better we're able to do that.

Data drives everything that we do - so you should be comfortable analyzing varied and complex data sets. Bloomberg's extensive collection of proprietary data is a great source, but we also scrape, submit records requests or otherwise compile data sets from scratch to tell compelling visual stories about business, markets, finance, technology, economics and politics. As the graphics team for a global news organization of more than 2,500 journalists, there's no shortage of work to do and no limit to the types of graphics we make.

Responsibilities:

Web Development:

You should have over two years of professional experience with modern HTML, CSS and JavaScript, including using Node for build processes, as well as rendering/animation libraries like D3, Canvas and WebGL.

Data Analysis:

Many of us use R and Python for data analysis, but we welcome those who prefer other methods.

Cartography:

We make lots of maps. Common tools are QGIS, ArcGIS, MapBox, Leaflet and D3. If you have knowledge of GDAL and usage of satellite photography—even better.

Storytelling:

We’re always eager to explore innovative narrative forms, so we welcome those who have experience with VR, 3D, illustration or anything else that can help us tell bold visual stories.

If you think you'd be a good fit to join us, submit an application and include a resume, a brief letter telling us about yourself and a portfolio that demonstrates a comprehensive understanding of data journalism and graphics design and development. Include a link to your github account if you have one.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
