Job Description

The Washington Post's publishing team is looking for empathetic senior full-stack engineers who would like to work closely with our newsroom, our product team and other engineering teams to build and maintain our fleet of publishing tools. Our ideal candidates are creative problem solvers who are comfortable evaluating our processes and recommending change. Pair programming, documentation, learning stipends and dedicated time to present new ideas every week are how we foster teamwork and growth. This position is remote-friendly for work in the US.

Our main publishing tools stack is Node and React, deployed with idiomatic AWS. Our stack also includes some Java and Mongo as well, but past experience with these tools is not a requirement for the job.

**This position could be 100% remote in the US for the right candidate.

  • Participate in mentorship and growth of junior engineers.
  • Can take ownership of features and see solutions through to the end.

  • More than 3 years of software development experience, with 5 years or more preferred.
  • Experience building and maintaining software applications in a team setting.
  • Experience and comfort with microservice architecture, including interacting with services their team does not own.
  • Predisposition towards testing, instrumentation and writing documentation.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.
