Bloomberg news is seeking a data journalist to combine data analysis with traditional reporting to unearth previously undiscovered stories in finance.
You'll be responsible for finding and analyzing data to add hard numbers to anecdotal reporting and uncover trends. You'll work alone or in collaboration with beat reporters to break news and provide insight.
You'll work on advanced problems, and with data that has not already been cleaned or packaged, so you should have experience importing, cleaning and analyzing large data sets with code.
You should have a demonstrated interest in financial reporting, as well as some ideas of the questions worth pursuing in SEC, CFPB, FDIC, FINRA or similar records.
WE'LL TRUST YOU TO:
Identify financial stories where data analysis can drive reporting
Handle tricky data, including data that is large and unstructured
Turn your findings into headlines and sharp nut grafs
An interest in finance and investing
A portfolio of data work demonstrating editorial judgment, rigor and ambition
Experience extracting insight from data
Expertise in R or Python
Experience with Github
If you think you'd be a good fit to join us, submit an application and include a short list of links describing your experience using data to uncover patterns.
