  • Newsroom Developer at Star Tribune

    Posted 2 weeks ago

    The Star Tribune is looking for a developer/journalist to join our ranks of digital makers and help elevate our storytelling through creative uses of code and data. You would be a key member of the Star Tribune’s Data Team, whose mission is to do unique and impactful journalism using data — and to help others in the newsroom do the same. Those stories might take many forms: investigative pieces, small to midsize enterprise stories, or even non-standard digital story forms driven by charts, maps or other interactive elements. We’ll give you all the tools you need to do your job: a simple AWS infrastructure, a laptop with your development tools of choice, and supportive bosses and colleagues who value your work and respect your contributions as a fellow journalist. We are looking for someone who: --Has a demonstrated history of writing code to solve problems in news. --Is a quick learner, creative thinker and adaptable problem-solver. Newsrooms are full of weird and interesting technical problems that require flexibility and creativity. We care a lot more about what you can learn than what you know. That said... --Feels comfortable learning our stack. We don’t care what tech you’ve used in the past, but our frontend apps are built in standard HTML/CSS/Javascript, using mostly common libraries (Svelte, D3, Mapbox, etc.) On the backend, we mostly use R, Python and SQL. Our apps live on EC2 and S3, and we use both MySQL and Postgres for data management. That said, we don’t have strong opinions on languages or tools. We just care about getting things done. --Is comfortable being a generalist. One week you might write a web scraper to support an investigative story. The next you might report and build your own visual enterprise piece. The next you might be improving our digital workflow tools, or leading development of our live election results, or helping conceive and build new forms of digital journalism. --Is an empathetic communicator, collaborator and teacher. We’ll be counting on you to help drive digital transformation, so an ability to win consensus and bring others along is critical. We don’t care how many years of experience you have or what you majored in. If you worry you’re not qualified, take the leap and apply anyway. And if you’re a member of a community that is traditionally underrepresented in news or technology, we especially want to hear from you.
