My D3 skills are considerably more valuable to the company then my frontend knowledge- but there is no organizational understanding of data viz and no ability to capitalize on the asset. For freelancing- the frustration is being unknown to potential clients and not having the option to tackle difficult projects.,My company is building a BI tool but they are completely closed to researching/pitching/testing/engineering new visualization types for the product. All of my complex visualization work is done for senior employees and does not scale. We could take a stronger position in the market if we invested in data viz and hired a dedicated team.,To convince senior leadership that data viz is critical to our product.,"Our charts should take better advantage of D3's power and flexibility. I can make anything but we only ""need"" the basics.","They don't understand why anyone would want to do visualization all the time- and they absolutely cannot imagine how data viz could be a source of profit on par with frontend or backend. They also believe that data viz is not a ""real"" software engineering focus that will prepare juniors for architect and management positions.",We should have a small budget for funding research- prototyping- and preliminary user testing of experimental visualizations. A data viz team cannot improve an organization if it's constrained to giving clients what they think they want.,"Everyone- thank you for the informative and inspirational pieces describing our industry. There're an incredible number of articles- interviews- podcasts- and meta-visualizations available to anyone interested in the job. That said- please share your negative or difficult data viz career experiences as well. You can be anonymous! For many data viz practitioners the market is dismissive and ignorant (even hostile) but positivity is the constant byword of the community. Consider a struggling artist or actor; they have access to leagues better advice than ""just work harder and wait for your inevitable big break"".
