Help Wanted: Data Visualization Design Jobs > BBC - Junior Editorial Designer Advertisement

Job Introduction

At BBC UX&D we design experiences for the audience of tomorrow, and deliver them to the audience of today. And we’ve won plenty of awards for our efforts.

Now we need a Junior Editorial Designer to join our recently formed Visual Journalism team (part of BBC News). You’ll be working alongside world-class journalists, technical experts and masters of motion graphics to create the next generation of storytelling formats.

The wider UX&D team works to create groundbreaking user experiences on four screens (Connected TV, Desktop, Mobile, and Tablet) across 10 products (BBC Homepage, Search, News, Sport, Weather, Knowledge & Learning, CBeebies, CBBC, iPlayer and Radio & Music). Collaborating strategically with technical, editorial and product teams from across the BBC, we create elegant, delightful experiences that transcend the barriers between old and new media. We are a global brand, our audience is international and we must deliver our designs and user experiences in multiple languages so we can reach all our users.

Main Responsibilities

We’re not talking 9 to 5. You’ll be at the heart of the action when a story breaks, working closely with other designers to deliver experiences that resonate across BBC News. Wherever and whenever our audience encounters us.

Day-to-day responsibilities
• Contribute design ideas to project teams made up of journalists, product managers and developers.
• Communicate conceptual ideas and design decisions to teams members.
• Collaborate with other members of UX&D to produce sketched concepts, user journeys, wireframes and navigational prototypes that reflect user needs.
• Provide designs across multiple screens for projects that deliver coherent user experiences.

Ideal Candidate

You’ve already done outstanding work across different screens, be they mobile, connected TV, tablet or desktop. And you’ve got the portfolio to prove it.

Now you’re hungry to get your teeth into some delicious new challenges, developing your skills in information design to unfurl even the knottiest of problems.

Your brain might tend towards data visualisation, information graphics and mapping, or layout, colour and typography. Either way you’ll have an ever-expanding set of skills you can tap into to create the ideal user experience. Maybe you’ve even got something special up your sleeve, like you’re an amazing prototype builder or 3D animator.

We like people who are:

• enthusiastic about what they do and a delight to work with;
• obsessive about accurate, timely delivery and being the first to break the latest news;
• motivated and full of ideas;
• serious about current affairs;
• geeky about information design and the latest developments in technology.
