    What You’ll Do

    • Work closely with our editorial team to translate our sensibility into amazing graphics, as well as tactile interactives
    • Collaborate with our lead designer and developer to improve the site and bring graphics to life
    • Help out with online and offline marketing materials for our sales team

    What We’re Looking For

    • Self-motivated designer with ability to perform job responsibilities in a timely manner in fast-paced, collaborative environment with minimal supervision
    • Flexibility in performing wide array of design tasks and ability to change priorities, iterate rapidly, and thrive under pressure.
    • Expert level knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML and CSS
    • Advanced proficiency in JQuery, as well as working knowledge of JavaScript and other JS libraries

    Bonus Points

    • Passion for journalism and community engagement
    • Previous employment in digital media, news and / or early-stage companies
    • Expertise in responsive design and mobile development
    • Experience in data visualization, motion design, video or animation
    • Well-versed in charts and graphic libraries like Highcharts
    • Background working with Google Maps and Fusion Tables
    • Experience with GitHub, WordPress, PHP, HTML5, CSS3 and SASS
    • Based in Philadelphia
