Senior Editor / Data Journalist (Hopper Research)

New York, United States · Growth

Description

The Company

Hopper is a new kind of travel company that uses big data to empower travelers. The Hopper app for iOS and Android analyzes trillions of past and current trips to predict when you should fly and buy. The app notifies you when fares drop so you can book flights at just the right moment. Hopper is among the fastest growing travel apps ever, with over 10 million installs since it was launched in 2015.

The Role

We’re looking for a senior editor who lives at the intersection of Hopper's communications and data science teams. The senior editor will work closely with our data science team to supercharge the production of content relating to Hopper's unique take on airfare data and market-level trends. Our stories are a mix of data-driven research reports intended for a sophisticated audience of business and travel journalists and more grounded stories intended for the broader travel consumer market. We use these stories to spark interest in Hopper from journalists and consumers alike and to establish ourselves as thought leaders in our space.

The editor's principal duty will be coordinating production of content and working with writers and data-visualization journalists to produce the content. Success will be determined by both quality and quantity of output, but also by the alignment of content production with the strategic needs of Hopper's communications team.

You might be a great fit for our team if you have experience in data journalism and editing and know how to write reader-friendly stories that make the best use of data, but are also very excited about seeing a real impact from your content on the goals of Hopper's communications team.
