Bloomberg News is one of the biggest financial and business news organizations in the world. We lead the way in breaking news and providing analysis on financial markets, from daily coverage through to in-depth features. We are known for our quality, accuracy and ability to deliver news investors can use. It’s what keeps us inventing and re-inventing, all the time.

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.

You are 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.

We’ll trust you to:

  • 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

You’ll need to have:

  • 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
  • Proficiency in both spoken and written English
  • Demonstrated continuous career growth within an organization

Life at Bloomberg is many things, but it’s never dull. We’re a truly global business with a truly diverse workforce. We pride ourselves on being open, inclusive and collaborative, and provide a work environment that inspires our employees to be their best. We offer competitive compensation, comprehensive healthcare coverage, and programs to support you and your family through different life stages, from parental leave to generous retirement savings plans.

If this sounds like you:

Apply if you think we're a good match. Include a CV, a cover letter telling us about yourself, a link to your Github account if you have one and a portfolio that demonstrates experience creating news-driven illustrations and visual narratives. We'll get in touch to let you know what the next steps are, but in the meantime feel free to have a look at this:
