The Huffington Post is looking for an infographics editor to design charts and graphics based on the news each day. This person would work with senior editors to conceptualize and execute visual, engaging, and highly sharable stories on a wide variety of topics. We are looking for someone who can create smart, quick charts and graphs that are ideal for sharing on social networks.

What are we looking for? Speed, savvy, and a sense of how data can help to powerfully illuminate and illustrate ideas. We work at the pace of the news, so we're looking for someone hungry and eager to create multiple viral graphics every week. The ideal candidate:

- Has a strong design background and a portfolio of infographics
- Is a creative thinker who can take data sets and create a compelling, immediate visual
- Is obsessed with the news and constantly coming up with timely story ideas
- Works quickly and accurately under deadline
- Loves finding the way into a story that gets the largest audience
- Is equally engaged by the high and low-brow

This is a fun and exciting opportunity for someone who is hungry to help a small, passionate team make an impact in the infographic news space.

Please send along your resume, cover letter and some examples of infographics projects.
