The Boston Globe is hiring a Web producer for its climate desk, part of a new investment in coverage of this critical issue. We’re looking for a savvy digital journalist with a wealth of energy and ideas who can help elevate our coverage at this pivotal time in the planet’s history.

Has deep experience publishing to digital platforms, whether it’s your site’s homepage, social media accounts, newsletters, alerts, or another avenue through which readers travel.
Is comfortable with data and data visualization. We don’t need a developer, but we do need someone who can find stories in data and who can collaborate with graphics artists and newsroom developers to tell stories in non-traditional ways.
Is fluent in audience analytics -- not only how to interpret them, but also how to use them as a tool to make decisions.
