Why are we here?

The world needs a different kind of newsroom. Not chasing breaking news, but revealing what’s driving it. Built to cover stories not as they happen, but when they’re ready.  Where everyone has a seat at the table. We’re here to build a journalism that lasts. A business model that’s responsible and sustainable.

What’s my personal contribution?

You will be working on the scoping and execution of a new series of indices ranking countries, businesses and other entities based on a large set of indicators. 

Key projects you will be working on include indices on cybersecurity, prosperity, energy and food equality. You may also work on the Responsibility100, a pioneering ranking of the FTSE 100 that investigates companies’ performance on social and environmental indicators, and Tortoise’s Global AI Index, a ranking that considers countries’ capacity to build and adapt to a future driven by AI. 

What are my responsibilities and accountabilities?

In collaboration with the rest of the team, you will:

  • Wrangle, extract and analyse a large number of different datasets relating to our indices as well as other research projects
  • Work on the annual updates and development of the indices  
  • Refine and improve our data collection and analysis tools
  • Analyse our results to extract key findings

What skills are desirable?

  • 1+ years’ experience working in Python
  • Experience using specialised tools to handle data, e.g. collection via web scraping and APIs, Pandas, matplotlib, spaCy
  • Enthusiasm for communicating with data and visualising it
  • Interest in technology, economics, business and other social forces that are shaping the world
  • Experience constructing or working with indices
  • Analytical and research skills

What do I show? Essential behaviours

  • Optimistic, can-do attitude
  • Problem solver
  • A desire to get to know our members
  • A pleasure to work with: positive, enthusiastic and open to ideas
