Senior Data Editor
Chalkbeat, the nonprofit news organization telling the story of education in America, seeks a Senior Data Editor to lead and grow the Data and Graphics team. This is an exciting opportunity to build a team from the ground up at a news organization that’s entering a period of expansion. Currently, the team leads data analysis and provides graphics for Chalkbeat’s eight bureaus and national desk. Recent projects include a revelatory piece on the effects of teacher turnover in Michigan, collaborative investigations into school enrollment declines and which students were able to return to school buildings, and creating a custom story experience for a special project. This position will also lead the work of mining data for story ideas to develop independently or in collaboration with reporters.
