U.S. News & World Report is a digital-first media company dedicated to helping consumers and business professionals make important decisions. We publish independent reporting, rankings, data journalism, and advice that has earned the trust of our readers and users for more than 85 years.

As a trusted authority providing empowerment and guidance that improves the quality of life for consumers and communities, U.S. News ultimately leads to better life decisions.

Your role in helping us shape the future:

We are looking for an enthusiastic Senior Software Developer with an interest in building dynamic, data-driven products.

U.S. News empowers everyone to thrive. The developers at U.S. News have a great deal of independence and a minimum of overhead. By leveraging React.js, Python, AWS cloud, Google BigQuery, data science, conversational AI, and other latest technologies, you’ll be driving a major transformation within U.S. News.

The successful candidate will become an influential member of a passionate, friendly, and growing team that creates web applications which reach millions of visitors monthly. Developers typically see applications through from beginning to end, working directly with project owners to create, implement, upgrade, optimize, and test features and projects.

We offer a casual work environment. Our offices are in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. We are also open to having this person work remotely from anywhere in the U.S.

Are you up to the challenge?

This position requires comfort working with frontend technologies for web site development. Our developers thrive in a collaborative environment but also excel at solving challenges independently. We use many different technologies and operate in many different environments, and we work together with designers, analysts, stakeholders, and testers to build products as efficiently and effectively as possible. We do not like to pigeonhole our developers; every team member has their own areas of expertise and interest, but the most successful are unafraid to explore unfamiliar parts of the stack. We also believe in perpetual self-improvement, and expect our employees to continue to work towards developing their own skills and the skills of those around them.

In addition to normal development responsibilities, senior team members are expected to espouse a degree of technical leadership. Such activities can include reviewing code, mentoring junior developers, contributing to architecture discussions, and serving as a technical role model. Senior team members are responsible for promoting the overall quality of our team and technology, beyond just focusing on their own individual contributions.

  • Modern JavaScript frameworks, such as React, Vue, or Angular 2+

  • Web styling with CSS preprocessors or CSS-in-JS
