(We use Ruby for most of our server-side coding, but we're more interested in how you've solved problems with code than in the syntax you used to solve them.) Experience with the full lifecycle of a data project is vital, as the data journalist will be involved at every stage: discovering data resources, helping craft public records requests, managing data import and validation, designing queries and working with reporters and interactive designers to produce investigative stories and interactive graphics that engage readers while maintaining AP's standards of accuracy and integrity. Experience doing client-side development is a great advantage, as is knowledge of data visualization and UI design. If you have an interest in DevOps, mapping solutions or advanced statistical and machine learning techniques, we will want to hear about that, too. And if you have shared your knowledge through technical training or mentorship, those skills will be an important asset. Most importantly, we're looking for someone who wants to be part of a team, who can collaborate and communicate with people of varying technical levels. And the one absolute requirement is intellectual curiosity: if you like to pick up new technologies for fun and aren't afraid to throw yourself into research to become the instant in-house expert on a topic, then you're our kind of candidate. Advanced-level professional competency in written and spoken English language is required. Authorization to work in the United States is mandatory.Data Sciences team is seeking a data journalist who combines the skills of a data analyst and Web application developer with a keen sense of news value and an eye toward storytelling.
