Senior visual journalist

FiveThirtyEight is looking for a senior visual journalist. The person in this role works at the center of our newsroom, spending about half the time working on his or her own stories and half the time working on collaborative, sitewide projects. The senior visual journalist is a member of the graphics team but also works closely with FiveThirtyEight editors and writers to produce high-impact journalism in politics, sports and other areas. We’re looking for someone with an eye for a compelling and important story as much as an aesthetic sense and technical skill set (though we want those too).
