Description

We've hired a data journalist a couple of days ago but we need more! If you applied to the previous opening, please feel free apply again (this one is in a different department).

Our company is growing and we are looking for a data journalist to join our team. First off, what's a data journalist?

A data journalist is someone who can distil a complex set of numbers, find the story in it and write about it in such a way that the layman would be able to understand what you're saying.

As a data journalist, you'll need to:

1. Have a curious mind and ask interesting questions.

2. Be comfortable with numbers and at least competent with Excel and data visualization.

3. Be able to write good English and aware of good copywriting practices.

Here are a few samples of what we are looking for:
