Job Description:

You've been building web applications for years. You've mastered Javascript and have strong opinions on React, Vue and Angular.

You enjoy prototyping new ideas just to see if they'll actually work. You frequently take the lead on important projects and have strong opinions on team process. You've dabbled with mobile app development and maybe you've even written and deployed a lambda function or two.

You're also a news junkie. You get push notifications from several news apps when something newsworthy happens.

You might have even published a few pieces yourself. You're looking for more than just another engineering job. You firmly believe in the public mission of journalism and its importance in our society. You want your work to have an impact.

Come join our team at The Wall Street Journal!

We're looking for you to:

  • Design, develop and test web applications for The Wall Street Journal.

  • Work closely with journalists, designers, data scientists, product managers and other engineers to build innovative solutions to current and future newsroom challenges.

  • Help set technical direction and long-term strategy for future mobile initiatives.

  • Play an active role in the product development process.

  • Keep an eye on technical innovations and changing trends in the mobile landscape.

We'd like you to have:

  • 2-3 years general web development experience with HTML, CSS and Javascript. Experience with React and Node.js is a huge plus.

  • A strong background in software engineering and computer science fundamentals.

  • Familiarity with API design for highly scalable services.

  • A natural curiosity and desire to understand and even contribute to the entire technology stack.

  • A passion for storytelling and creativity to introduce new ideas and technologies. If you have a background in journalism, even better!

If this describes you, then we'd love to talk to you!
