As an Infographic Designer…

  • You use a combination of graphics and data visualization tools to tell a visual story with data.
  • Your work is visually appealing on the surface, but also draws you in and tells a clear, contextual story.
  • You have an insatiable curiosity and like to visually explore data.
  • You approach “data viz” from the designer perspective instead of the computer science perspective.
  • You know the elements of good visual design.
  • You can look at a bad infographic and immediately list a dozen things you’d do to improve it.
  • You know that good data visualizations are informative, but great visualizations have interactive and exploratory elements to them as well.
  • You’re adept at working with multiple experts from various data domains and learning as you go.
  • You’re experienced at teasing requirements out of customers.
  • You can take a bunch of brainstorming ideas and form them into a cohesive vision.

Preferably, you also have:

  • 3+ years of experience and steadily increasing responsibility in a similar position
  • Business acumen – understand business drivers and have a framework-driven process of analyzing business problems and developing solutions
  • Solid experience in any modern data visualization platform

What you will be doing:

  • Working closely with Business Analysts and customers to understand their data and analytics needs, and define project goals and deliverables
  • Exploring data from various domains/industries using tools such as Tableau & Power BI
  • Designing interactive data visualizations that allow customers to interpret and explore their data in an intuitive manner
  • Collaborating with experts in machine learning and data engineering to enable the transformation of data into actionable insights
  • Providing guidance and expertise in information design best practices
  • Presenting visualizations to prospective clients showcasing potential and generating excitement over data

As the ideal candidate, you:

  • Have a sense of humour
  • Know that your routine is in fact, not routine
