The Texas Tribune is hiring an interactive designer/developer to create narratives that drive audience participation across platforms and inform and engage Texans about policy issues. This designer will work closely with our community reporter and audience team to develop editorial projects that actively engage readers in the storytelling process, and seek ways to contextualize user experiences with relevant policy data and reporting.
This is a new and exciting role at The Texas Tribune, which is committed to making state politics more accessible to the people directly affected by policy decisions.
The Texas Tribune is a nonprofit newsroom based in Austin, Texas, dedicated to engaging and informing Texans on politics and policy news. We are read by more than 1.5 million people every month and have more journalists covering state government than any newsroom in the country. In addition, our events team hosts more than 50 free conversations between the public and elected officials across the state every year.
We’re a "grown-up startup,” meaning we all wear many hats, but we’re also big fans of getting enough sleep. We think our office is a pretty great place to work, and we're proud of the job we've done helping to make Texas politics transparent and accessible to the world at large. Your benefits would include a downtown office with parking; medical, vision and dental insurance; a cell phone stipend; 20 days of vacation; support for professional training and attending industry conferences; and copious amounts of edible treats in the office.
The Texas Tribune is committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace and encourages people of all backgrounds to apply.
