Code4Africa is recruiting two data wranglers for part-time fellowships to help kickstart a data journalism desk in South Africa’s leading financial newsroom, the Financial Mail (FM).

A data liberation fellow — who could be a university student or journalistic freelancer — will help digitise FM’s extensive editorial archives over a 3-month period in preparation for a series of flagship investigative data journalism projects.

A second data wrangler fellow — who should have data analysis / data storytelling experience — will help FM drive its first major data journalism projects on a renewable fellowship that is performance-based.

Only Johannesburg-based applicants will be considered.
