The Data Visualisation Editor will collaborate with visual journalists and reporters on data-focused stories from quick-hit to longer-term enterprise projects. You must be able to do some writing, but your main focus will be toward enriching our journalism with visualisations and interactive news apps.

In this role, you will conceive of, design and execute data-driven stories with an audience-first mindset. You will work with developers to expand the functionality and adoption of the Guardian's in-house charting tool. You will also collaborate with other visual journalists to brainstorm ideas and elevate the use of data on the team and the newsroom.

To succeed, you must have a track record of producing creative and innovative data visualisations. You must be proficient using javascript, html/css, d3, Excel and R. Also critical is a willingness to collaborate and teach others, a high attention to detail, and ability to meet deadlines. Although journalism experience is not a requirement, you must have a good understanding of the Guardian, an interest in current affairs and a strong desire to work in news.
