The Wall Street Journal is looking for an experienced Graphics Reporter to drive creative and informative storytelling primarily for our print newspaper audience, with some digital crossover as needed.

- Help transform an idea that was originally digital in a print experience.
- Help reporters and editors learn new skills that will contribute to their visual storytelling.
- Work quickly and efficiently under tight deadlines.
