Description:

The Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach, Fla., is looking for a coding-savvy reporter for a half-year, paid data internship starting as early as May 2019.

In South Florida, you'll find not only warm weather, but open records laws that sizzle. We're known for exposing corruption, grabbing a little piece of every big national story and, of course, Mar-a-Lago, the winter White House of Donald J. Trump.

The ideal candidate should have enough flexibility to pick technologies to solve the needs of a small data desk. Coding experience is essential. Let us know your preferred means and area of coding expertise.

Our ideal candidate is aching to crunch numbers but also can make them come alive online. The position calls for helping all newsroom reporters with data analysis while pursuing in-depth projects with The Post’s investigative team or on your own.

The data intern must be available to work 40 hours a week. The job is full-time but temporary in duration, lasting nearly six months. A four-year college degree is preferred.

Interested candidates should provide a cover letter, resume, references and code or work samples. Please indicate whether you will be attending the NICAR national conference March 7-10 in Newport Beach, Calif.

Send packages to Joel Engelhardt, investigative team editor, at pbpostinterns@gmail.com.
