Job alert

Senior Visual Editor, politics — CNN Digital

Location: Washington, DC

At CNN Digital, the way we tell stories is just as important as the stories themselves. Whether it’s breaking news, investigative journalism, or enterprise storytelling, our visual journalism breaks down stories for audiences in compelling and accessible ways. The diversity of approaches allows us to better inform our audiences with essential and engaging news storytelling.

We are expanding our visual journalism team and are looking for a Visual Editor who will help pitch, edit, and execute visual storytelling on the web — from graphics and interactives to emerging storytelling forms like AR + motion graphics. The person in this role will work primarily with the politics team to help shape visual narratives and coverage, while also collaborating with a team of visual editors and journalists across the organization. This is a player/coach role, where you’ll have ownership over shaping story ideas while also being able to get hands on in building out projects. The position is based in DC and reports to the Director of Visual News.
