Find A New Gig With News Nerd Jobs

Any modern journalist needs to have some level of expertise when it comes to coding and handling data. News organizations across the country are always looking for new talent, and News Nerd Jobs has aggregated several of these postings into one convenient website.

News Nerd Jobs - http://www.newsnerdjobs.com

News Nerd Jobs is the brainchild of Matt Waite, professor of journalism at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the co-founder of Hot Type Consulting. (Matt is also the principal developer of the Pulitzer Price-winning fact-checking website PolitiFact, which we have covered here on 10,000 Words.) News Nerd Jobs is only about a week old, but it’s already getting some notice by the online journalism community through the Knight Digital Media Center blog.

Listings are provided using an embedded Google Docs spreadsheet, and the website is built using Twitter’s Bootstrap website framework. The site currently has over 40 job listings available, and also includes a section for internships. News organizations that are looking to hire programmers or designers can click the “Add A Job” button at the top of the page and submit their listing directly to the spreadsheet.

And get this: The workflow integrates seamlessly with InDesign, meaning the paper now has one content management system for both its web and print operations. And if you’re auspicious enough, you can do it too — he’s open-sourced all the code!

The video embedded above is a screencast from Davis, which outlines the new editorial workflow.
