Media Organization: MedicalDaily.com, IBT Media
MedicalDaily.com is dedicated to covering health and science news that matters most to our generation. We cover a wide range of stories, but ultimately we are driven by two core values: first, to contribute to our readers’ understanding of what is a very complex and constantly changing field of information, and second, to keep in mind the ultimate “smell test” — we want our stories to be the kind of things you talk about at a bar with your friends.
We are seeking a visual reporter who can develop branded interactive content for Medical Daily. We’re looking for someone who can create illustrations (including infographics, videos, data visualizations, etc.) for our longer stories and design for new packages that we put together. The ideal candidate is comfortable creating and editing everything from photos to video and will work closely with writers, editors, and other members of the newsroom to successfully execute visual content. The visual reporter will bring a detailed understanding of the importance of story-branding, and the importance of graphics in the news story-telling process. Data analysis skills a huge plus.
Highly organized, accurate, and detail-oriented
Demonstrated execution of a clean, elegant, and sophisticated aesthetic; an ability to visualize complex ideas in a clear, accurate, and intelligent manner.
Experience using design software (Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign)
Experience using video editing software (Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Elements, etc.)
Previous experience working with a content management system (CMS)
Science/medical news background a plus
Data analysis skills a huge plus
Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience
