Brainstorm Creative Resources is looking to engage a Data Visualization Designer / Developer on a work-from-home project with a timeline of two to four weeks from kick-off to completion.

Building off of an existing prototype visualization and utilizing a database of occupational transitions, the Data Visualization Designer / Developer will create accessible charts, graphs, Sankey diagrams, or other interactive tools to show potential employment paths for workers who are vulnerable to job dislocation or insecurity due to COVID-19. S/he will also use our client organization’s city-level data on industrial and occupational staffing patterns; projected industry growth and decline; and demographic segmentation to show which industries and workers are most vulnerable in a given metropolitan area.
