Entry-level journalism job @ ProPublica

ProPublica, a Pulitze Prize-winning investigative journalism organization that partners with major media outlets nationwide, is seeking a tech savvy journalist for a new position. But, hurry, the application deadline is January 20.

The News Applications Fellowship is a year-long paid internship in New York City. It is is open to all, and current students or recent grads who have a talent in new media are encouraged to apply.

In this special internship, you’ll help us test a hypothesis: Can a smart, technical journalist with excellent and proven skills in other nerdy newsroom disciplines like graphics and CAR become a news app developer?

You’ll learn how to make news apps like our Dollars for Docs and Opportunity Gap projects, working side-by-side with our news app developers. You’ll leave here with a set of skills and experience that will make you an invaluable member of any news apps or interactive news team. If you’re already got some programming skills, we’ll round out your knowledge and teach you how we turn raw data into journalism, and if you’re an accomplished journalist, we’ll teach you how to code.

Naturally, if you already have some coding skills, especially in front-end markup like CSS and HTML, you’ve got a leg up. But we’re expecting to train the right person. We know that out there in the news universe there are whip-smart people who are starting to teach themselves how to program by reading books and building stuff they never show anybody; people who want to take their graphics talents to the next level and to start working on the back-end code as well. If that's you, hurry up and apply already.

To apply, send an e-mail with your résumé and URLs to scott.klein@propublica.org. Make sure to submit a brief explanation of the exact role you played in the projects your URLs point to. Start date is flexible, but can be immediate. Click here for more info.
