Lynn Cherny originated a data visualization jobs board as a google group because the number of data-vis related jobs has exploded and she wanted to provide a central place for freelancers to find work. Since then, the number of opportunities for data visualization professionals has continued to grow for freelancers and those seeking full time data viz roles. Finding a job in this field can still be challenging to navigate and search for since titles for data visualization-focused roles vary widely though.
The Data Visualization Jobs Board, like the Data Visualization Society, is tool agnostic and can be used to post and discover roles where designing, developing, creating, managing, teaching, training, mentoring, and/or coaching on data visualization is a key feature to the role. Postings for full time, part time, contract, and freelance opportunities are welcome.
Technical job postings are likely to include (but are not limited to!) roles requiring any of the following skills and tech platforms: D3.js, Raphael.js, Processing / Processing.js, Paper.js, Flash, Illustrator, Excel, Tableau, R (ggplot2), Python - matplotlib / chaco / traits/ bokeh / d3.py etc, Gephi/NodeXL/sigma.js.
We also welcome postings for roles that focus on managing data visualization teams, the use of data visualization within organizations, and other related non-technical or strategic positions.
