Description:

The Dallas Morning News is looking for an experienced journalist to lead its Data and Interactives department, charged with producing in-depth reporting, insightful data tools and stunning visualizations. 

We are looking for a manager who can inspire a team of the most collaborative journalists in the newsroom to help report and publish ambitious stories, tools and projects through data reporting, analysis and visual journalism. The right candidate will have a passion for local journalism and will be eager to shape the projects of your team and carry out some of your own. 

About the team:

The News' data and interactive design team is composed of computational journalists, an interactive designer and graphics artists, but at their core, they are all journalists. They have a wide range of skills, including data analysis, visualization, front- and back-end development and visual design. They work on a diverse set of topics and story types, including elections and state government, investigative, enterprise and breaking news reporting and visual storytelling.

About you:

We do not expect every candidate to be equally skilled in all the job requirements listed in this posting. We want to hear from candidates who are passionate about this work and will bring their vision to the role. 

We particularly encourage candidates from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to apply. Diversity of voices, experiences and opinions make our newsroom and journalism stronger.
