Data Strategist - News

Dow Jones seeks a data specialist to lead its charge to create new content and leverage existing information for its premier business news publications, including The Wall Street Journal.

Based in Barcelona, the person in this position will join with a newly formed team of journalists focused on serving the needs of business and financial professionals. She or he will be responsible for leading efforts to create new content, data sets and tools for Dow Jones and its diverse platforms.

This person will work closely with the newsroom, researchers in the Dow Jones Data Strategy and Market Data groups, and developers to ensure we’re fully leveraging the news, analysis and data at our disposal in the most effective ways. Alongside the creation of new, data-rich products, we expect the person to contribute to our efforts to boost automation and enhance tagging to give our professional subscribers a deeper sense of the significance of news in real time.

We’ll be keen to see how applicants have used in-house and open-source or commercial data sets as the foundations of new products and types of content, exemplifying the kind of ‘non-story’ content our professional customers might find valuable.

The ideal candidate will have a strong grounding in news but also programming skills that will allow him or her to dig into large data stores and work with real-time APIs.
