Website HW Media
HW Media, the leading publisher of news and information for the housing industry, is seeking a data journalist to join its newsroom.
We’re looking for an experienced journalist with a strong understanding of data science, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to dive deep into market trends in a dynamic industry.
We have access to a treasure trove of housing data through real-time market reports from Altos Research, rankings and surveys from RealTrends, as well as close partnerships with some of the leading data companies in the space.
The successful candidate will synthesize complex data sets into stories with clear and concise messages, identify and report on emerging trends, create charts and other visual aids, and collaborate with other reporters on daily and feature stories.
Experience with Python and/or R as well as a mastery of Excel is required.
Our award-winning newsroom covers every facet of the U.S. housing market, from the business of mortgage and real estate companies, to appraisal/valuation, title insurance and housing policy and regulation.
We are looking for a creative thinker who sees data analysis not as an end in itself, but as a tool to answer interesting and important questions in the housing market. The technical work is important, but being able to contextualize it through traditional reporting methods is just as critical.
While our headquarters is located in Dallas, Texas, we are a remote workforce and the candidate can work anywhere in the continental U.S. Hours are a standard Mon-Fri workday.
