Star Tribune seeks a Graphics Producer to conceptualize and execute data visualizations across all platforms. This person will help contextualize the news with maps, charts, diagrams and explainers, enriching our newsroom’s audience-led storytelling.
This candidate should be a problem-solver and collaborator, and should also help support our newsroom’s efforts towards digital-first publishing. You will need to leverage relationships from across the room — with editors, reporters, designers and developers — to create graphics and guide data-rich storyforms. This candidate should be a team player, eager to share the production load for several platforms, from the newspaper to Instagram, while also keeping an ear to the ground for ambitious opportunities beyond the daily churn.
You will be expected to uphold standards of accuracy, ethics and equity in all coverage.
Star Tribune is committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace, and encourages qualified applicants of all backgrounds to apply.
The ideal candidate should have a passion for local/regional journalism as well as many of the following:
