The Creative Technologist is a full-time summer position funded by a grant from the Knight Foundation. The grant's purpose is to bring promising research projects from academic contexts into our organization. You would spend the summer working on one our more projects that seek to bring Boston to life in new ways, either through social engagement, visualization, innovation in advertising (or something we've never thought of!). This is a unique opportunity to put cutting edge ideas in front of our online audience of 7 million. You would work as part of a small, startup-like team that has regular contact with boston.com's leadership as well as the Globe newsroom and many other parts of the organization.
You would spend the summer writing code that would, ideally, take an external research project (or set of ideas) and turn them into a real live project that would delight and inform our users.
