Data Editor, San Francisco Chronicle
The San Francisco Chronicle has an opening for an ambitious, resourceful and discerning data editor to join the newsroom’s digital team. The editor will supervise a team that will focus on providing readers unique, important and enterprising data-driven stories and projects on issues, people and events affecting Northern California.
We are looking for a strong, positive communicator who loves to help journalists come up with ideas, work with them at every step of the reporting and writing process, make creative decisions about how stories should be presented, and partner with producers, designers and others to make stories captivate and resonate online.
A successful candidate will embrace a collaborative environment and work hard to develop talent in the newsroom. The editor should have the drive to deliver best-in-class coverage of a competitive story, often on tight deadlines, as well as the curiosity to ask what worthy stories remain untold. Strict devotion to accuracy, fairness and inclusiveness in coverage is a must.
The editor will work on a close-knit team that builds projects from the ground up, in service to a rapidly growing local audience of readers who respect facts and appreciate high-quality local news and analysis. The team will produce quick-turn graphics-focused stories, interactive projects and data-driven deep dives. The editor will have a hand in selecting some of their team members and will help set the strategy for the larger group’s overall direction.
