ProPublica is seeking one contract and one permanent software developer/journalist to join its award-winning news applications team.
As a news apps developer you will:
- Design and develop news apps and interactive graphics to hold the powerful accountable and have real impact on the lives of the public.
- Work with the best news nerds on the planet on some of the biggest and most innovative projects in investigative and data journalism. ⚡
The ideal candidate will have:
- Design talent, coding acumen and a journalist’s insight, or demonstrated excellence in at least two of these areas and an aptitude for and genuine interest in developing your skills in all three.
- Attention to detail and a love for making things.
- The self-discipline to work independently, as well as an eagerness to work with teammates on collaborative projects.
- Fluency in modern and widely supported front- and back-end languages. We’re a Ruby shop, but we’re happy to have you learn Ruby after you get here, as long as you know a similar scripting language.
We also know that great candidates can bring skills to ProPublica that we haven’t thought of, and who won’t fit everything we’ve described above. If this is you, don’t hesitate to apply, and tell us what unique contributions you can offer.
One position is a contract that will expire at the end of 2017. One position is a permanent role. Both are based in New York City and working remote is not an option. Both positions are full time with benefits.
You can apply using this form. We cannot emphasize this enough: Great projects are the most important part of the application. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The last day to apply is Sunday, May 7.
ProPublica is dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. Therefore, we are committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
