Job Board >> Writer/Visual Journalist Hybrid
|Company Name||Infographic World|
|Date Posted||18, Thursday 2013|
|Listing Type||Hourly Rate|
The ideal candidate will have newsroom experience, including as a reporter, copy editor or page designer/graphic designer. We want candidates who can gather and digest a large amount of data, facts and analysis, and build a blueprint of a visual story that will be passed on to our talented team of designers to bring to life.
In the growing infographics industry, we set ourselves apart by striving to offer new takes on old information or beat our competition with new data analysis. Then we add to that a stable of supremely talented illustrators and designers, and the result is a focus on highly viral products.
Our work is routinely featured on major news sites and blogs – and recently even earned a mention on late-night TV.
In this freelance role, you will work remotely, remaining in close contact with colleagues via email and Skype (or other chat platforms).
Must-haves: A passion for storytelling, a keen eye for visuals, an ability to understand and translate complex data, experience with design software (such as Photoshop or Illustrator), attention to detail and a reliable nature.
