Job description: The Denver Post will be hiring an informational graphics journalist. We are in the process of transforming the work we do here across all visual departments to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the multiple platforms we publish to -- including our beloved print. We have just signed up an interactive graphic journalist who brings design and illustration skills along with the necessary experience, creativity and knowledge of coding to tell our stories online. Likewise for this position, we're looking for a multi-skilled individual. We tackle top-quality graphics story telling on a daily basis -- from informational maps and charts to journalistically rich investigative projects, from illustrations for features, news and sports to actually designing a page that includes text, photos and that fabulous graphic you built. Can you come up with three or four concepts for a special section cover from a single budget line? Can you storyboard? Can you see how a story plays in print and online? And can you deliver on both? Can you take direction? Do you have a willingness to learn? Do you like to have fun at work? Are you a self-starter? What is it that you excel at? What do you bring? What do you want to own? Go ahead, pique our interest. In short, our mission is to be visually excellent with every turn of the page and every click of the mouse -- and it is a work in progress (we are redesigning our web page, by the way). The successful candidate need not have a ton of experience. We can work with someone with passion, skills, smarts, humor, fresh ideas, and a strong work ethic; someone who is engaged in the work, a team player and can visualize stories in graphic form. This is an opportunity for you to help us further elevate the visual side of the equation here at The Denver Post -- in print and online. Prima donnas need not apply. Oh, yeah. You'll get to live in Denver, Colorado -- as picture postcard perfect as any city or state. The lifestyle? Laid back. The politics? Fiercely independent. Culturally? A lively theater district and impressive art museum are just a few blocks from the office. Fun? There is a terrific music scene, here, and the 16th Street Mall downtown is jumping with cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, book stores, coffee houses and more. Like sports? How about all major sporting venues for all major sports -- NHL, MLB, NFL and NBA -- all within a stone's throw of the newspaper office? Like colors to inspire? The sunsets here are intoxicating. Like to hike? Like to bike? Like to ski? Like we said, it's Colorado. To let us know immediately if you have an interest in this position, contact Jeff Goertzen, graphics editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. He'll take it from there. No phone calls, please.
