DATA EDITOR position at

Dear ITPers,

a friend of mine at looking for a right person to hire for DATA EDITOR position. Details of the job is below.

Data Editor
GOOD is looking for a data-obsessed editor to join the editorial department and lead our ongoing development of insightful, interactive data visualizations, maps and diagrams. The Data Editor will formulate and execute a broad strategy for sharing GOOD-curated data and analysis, and serve as our envoy to the larger community of programmers, designers, researchers, and hackers who love data. Rather than edit-at-a-distance, the Data Editor willpossess a keen understanding of how to find and convey engaging stories and insights from data sets. Comfort working with databases, visual design, and statistics is critical.  Fluency in tools like Python, Java, Processing and R is a plus, and the ability to spot the next big language or data technology is a necessity.
Since launching in 2006, GOOD has been a leading platform for original, creative, and experimental information visualization. Today, we’re looking for a Data Editor with a particular focus on news and interactivity to push our efforts in this field to the next level.
The ideal candidate will have experience finding innovative ways to marry information design with data and interactivity to produce exciting visual explanations of complex topics, a relentless drive to uncover new information and data, and the ability to identify the compelling stories within in it.
Candidates must be able to work quickly and fluidly through all phases of the process: from research, to analysis, to concept, to design, to copy writing, and final execution of features like interactive maps and charts and the pages that display
Candidates should have a desire to collaborate extensively since the job requires close coordination with other editors, designers, and programmers – both in house and out.
This job will be based in Los Angeles.
