About Datastory

Datastory is an organization devoted to explaining important issues using open data and visualization. We use modern technology, user experience design and storytelling – in short ‘data stories’ – to democratize knowledge. It's a natural evolution of the Encyclopedia, one better aligned with how humans learn and the amounts of data available to humanity today.

Our goal is to make scientific research and data as accessible as Netflix, mobile games or funny cat videos so that more people can participate in the democratic dialogue on equal terms.

 If more people have access to knowledge, we will have better conversations. With rich overviews and explanations – a click away – it will be easier for anyone to track societal progress, contribute ideas and hold politicians to account whether we're debating economy, healthcare or education. With new technology and workflows, we also want to help researchers make their critical findings widely known sooner, and with more richness and depth, than traditional communication and media. Leveraging data stories and open data, Datastory can offer a shortcut to an audience. Datastory is being developed by a team of data scientists, data journalists, project leaders, developers and designers.

The Job

As a Senior UX/UI designer, you'll be developing entirely new sections of Datastory.org, including but not limited to new landing pages, templated pages, custom immersive data experiences and data-driven essays.

You'll work together with our data journalists, illustrators and developers to build a sustainable knowledge platform that serves millions of users per year.

Specifically, you'll:

  • Work as a product designer to brainstorm and prototype interactive web tools and overall website experience
  • Improve our evolving style and design system
  • Collaborate with lead illustrators and developers to ensure consistency across every design element, including iconography, infographics, diagrams, and animation
  • Translate complex information and data into user-friendly pages and experiences


  • Have 3+ years of UX/UI experience at an organization, startup, company or agency
  • Have experience working alongside product managers and engineers
  • Embrace the process of critical thinking, experimentation, learning, and uncertainty
  • Are immersed in the world of web and mobile products
  • Have a portfolio of UI projects that demonstrate web application UI, storytelling, data visualization and other relevant skills
  • Are curious about global and local development and how better tools and better data can improve the world

As a big plus, you:

  • Have worked on data-driven ui, data visualization, knowledge platforms
  • Have developed design systems
  • Have worked on interactive storytelling or games
  • Have experience illustrating complex topics using creative coding / ui

We offer:

  • Exciting projects
  • Competitive compensation
  • An office at Internetstiftelsen coworking space in Central Stockholm (Hammarby Kaj 10D)
  • Equipment budget for computer and peripherals
  • Flexible vacation time and flexible work hours
