The Los Angeles Times is seeking a summer intern to join its Data and Graphics Department. The intern will partner with reporters and editors across the newsroom to inform and engage our readers.

This paid job will provide experience working with professional reporters and computer programmers as they report the news. The intern will join a newsroom team that works to collect, organize, analyze and present structured data. Its journalism has attracted millions of readers, sparked sweeping government reforms and helped win some of our industry’s highest awards.

Past interns have built searchable databases, invented newsroom tools, released open-source libraries, visualized data and developed maps. They have gone on to jobs at the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Associated Press, ProPublica, Vox Media and Politico.

We don’t expect our interns to walk in the door with knowledge of every programming language. But strong applicants will demonstrate having used computers to be creative and get things done on deadline.
