Lead Software Engineer, Web Development (React, NextJS, and Node.js)

Dow Jones - New York, NY

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 processes. You’ve dabbled with cloud infrastructure 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:

  • Architect, develop, test, and deploy web applications for The Wall Street Journal.
  • Be a team player and work closely with designers, data scientists, product managers and other engineers to build innovative solutions.
  • Help set technical direction and long-term strategy for future web initiatives.
  • Play an active role in the digital product development process.
  • Keep an eye on technical innovations and changing trends in the web landscape.

We’d like you to have:

  • 4+ years general web development experience with HTML/CSS and Javascript. Experience with React, NextJS, 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. Hands-on experience with AWS API Gateway, GraphQL and Apollo is very welcome.
  • Experience with source control management systems and continuous integration/deployment environments
  • A natural curiosity and desire to understand and contribute to the entire technology stack.
  • A passion for news 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!
