New York Times Visual Editor, London in New York, New York

Job Description

We’re looking for a visual editor based in London who can raise the ambition and consistency of our visual journalism covering Europe and the Middle East.

We have an opportunity to bring a more visual approach to our coverage of both. We reached large audiences here and abroad with live analysis of French at https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/05/07/world/europe/france-election-results-maps.html and British election results at https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/06/08/world/europe/british-general-election-results-analysis.html and a reconstruction of how people escaped at https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/06/24/world/europe/escaping-the-inferno-grenfell-tower-fire-london.html the Grenfell fire. We can do more to help readers understand how migration, segregation, populism and Brexit are reshaping the continent.

In the Middle East, we have to answer the question: How can we focus our readers’ attention on issues they often ignore – like the wars in Syria and Yemen and the regional power struggle between Saudi Arabia and Iran? How can we bring readers to the places our correspondents visit and help them understand what they see?

This person should:

  • Work with editors and correspondents in Europe and the Middle East to conceive ambitious projects and coordinate with editors in New York.

  • Regularly report deeply on key subjects to find datasets, maps, photos and other information that can be the source for visual projects and assignments.

  • Work on multidisciplinary teams, including graphics, photo and video teams in New York, to build and shape projects across formats, including text.

  • Write clearly, work on tight deadlines and edit to sharpen the relationship between images and copy.

  • Train editors and correspondents to produce successful visual formats so they become a more regular part of the report.

  • Expertise in development of interactive graphics or Web sites.

  • Skill in interface design and/or traditional information graphic design.

  • Fluency in HTML/CSS and JavaScript.

  • Experience with Adobe Creative Suite.

This is an excluded position.
