Mother Jones seeks digital journalist
You might be an ace video producer, a chart whiz, a Photoshop pro. Most likely you are a little of all of these-a mix of dabbler and perfectionist, proficient in some multimedia tools, curious about others. But whatever your background and center of gravity, you are passionate about using the full digital toolkit to tell rich, compelling stories about interesting stuff. Say, an intelligible, smart, and entertaining explainer about just why fossil-fuel cash is hijacking our elections. (Kittens optional.)
Here at Mother Jones, we’re constantly experimenting with interactive and multimedia content-from an "Are You a Slut?" flowchart to a map of Occupy protests to our "Does God Believe in Climate Change?" video. Now we’re expanding our team to break new ground in mashing up investigative reporting, breaking news, and interactive storytelling. Any story is fair game, but we’ll be focusing particularly on the "dark money" universe-the intersection between politics, wealth, corporate power, and the deregulated campaign-finance environment. It’s fascinating terrain, but often also forbidding or eyes-glaze-over dull. We aim to change that.
In this position, you’ll be working closely with the MoJo news team, including our nine-person Washington bureau and a newsroom full of editors, writers, interactive editors, and techies in San Francisco. It’s a high-energy, intensely collaborative environment where we aim to bring out everyone’s best work.
