Please understand that we may not be able to reply to all applications.

Position descriptions:

Web producer - Manage, curate, display and promote Times journalism; choose, crop and add photos and other related items to our content; and recombine and package the Times' high quality work in innovative ways. The newsroom environment is fast-paced and requires the ability to exchange ideas with reporters, editors and other staffers.

We seek candidates who have worked on web or blog management platforms and want to learn new ones, and have related experience writing headlines and descriptions in new formats with high journalistic standards quickly and accurately. Some experience with Adobe Photoshop, HTML language, and producing web pages is required. Knowledge of social media, SEO, CSS, RSS, Java, Django, or other kinds of interfaces and software is a plus.

Data application producer - Combine programming skills with journalism to provide interactive experiences that give our audiences the data and facts behind the stories we tell. Work with our team of reporters, data analysts and Web developers at the Data Desk and experiment with new story forms. Maps, interactive lists and searchable databases are among the projects possible. Candidates should have database journalism experience and more specialized abilities and/or interests in working in Phython, Django, Ruby or other Web frameworks to present data of journalistic interest in Web applications, data visualizations and searchable databases. HTML/CSS/Javascript knowledge is essential. Skills in scraping and familiarity with cross-platform scripts would be useful as well.

The work may be primarily in one section of the newsroom or could involve several. Schedules vary and flexibility on shifts and hours is expected in this business. The entry-level pay range for these positions is $10-$18 an hour. Part-time positions are also possible.

Internships in social media and other emerging technologies are also possible.

Please send a letter and resume to onlinejobs@latimes.com. Because attachments may be stripped, we suggest applicants copy the basic resume into plain text of e-mail. Large files or photos are likely to be rejected, so please keep attachments well under 300K or refer us to your website. A simple Word document or PDF is acceptable. And please provide links to your best work.
