Journalism Job

Media Organization: ProPublica

Company Description

ProPublica is an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest. Our work focuses exclusively on truly important stories, stories with “moral force.” We do this by producing journalism that shines a light on exploitation of the weak by the strong and on the failures of those with power to vindicate the trust placed in them.

Job Description

ProPublica is looking for a sharp-eyed, detail-oriented web producer to guide our daily art and production. You’ll be equal parts task minder and production designer.

Why you want this job: You will be at the very epicenter of one of the most exciting newsrooms in the country. You will develop a deep understanding of how ProPublica’s stories are reported and assembled, and be exposed to some of the best journalists on the planet. And most of all, every day you come into the office will be another chance to change the world.

A typical day at ProPublica might find you:

Coordinating with editors and reporters to keep the story schedule on track and up to date.
Formatting and posting the latest articles to propublica.org via our CMS.
Making photo and art selections to accompany feature articles.
Coordinating schedules with photographers and illustrators we commission.
Editing HTML and CSS to tweak layouts and features.
Skills needed:

Solid, hand-coded HTML and CSS
Basic to intermediate Photoshop
A solid design eye
