WBUR, one of the largest and most innovative public media operations in the country, is seeking a developer in a newly created role who can help us tell stories, lead our technical team and continue our innovative track record of smart, exciting digital news and membership products.
It’s an exciting time to work at WBUR, where our growing digital team is reevaluating every aspect of our operation, everything from digital strategy to new products to how we tell stories. In this new role you would get to shape and direct our future. We’re working on big projects, building new site architecture around audio streaming and discovery, new apps and ways to experience audio online, meaningful digital membership and much, much more. We need talented, passionate people to help make that happen.
As a lead web developer, you’ll work with editors, reporters, producers and others across our operation to build tools, shape our platform, and help organize and scale a growing digital team. You’ll work across project teams at WBUR to solve problems, determine project scope, help set schedules and deadlines, and oversee quality assurance. You will act as a subject-matter expert for project team members, helping to translate and bridge design, development, and production of websites and web-based applications to execute WBUR’s emerging digital strategies and goals. At WBUR, you’ll work on big, public-facing projects on a platform that people are passionate about.
Ideally, you like to tackle complex problems, and have experience working with responsive web design and front-end development; have an ability to translate technical details to a non-technical internal audience; have a commitment to user-centered design, web standards, usability and accessibility; and a passion for public media and journalism. WBUR is a WordPress shop; currently we’re evaluating new languages and frameworks to build even better experiences. Come join us!
