The Atlantic is a digital-first media company with over 150 years of history and 30 million online visitors a month. Founded in 1857 and today one of the fastest-growing media platforms in the industry, The Atlantic has throughout its history championed the power of big ideas and continues to shape global debate through our two websites: TheAtlantic.com and CityLab.com. We work in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment out of our office in the historic Watergate complex in Washington DC.
We are looking for talented and knowledgeable Front-End, Back-End, and DevOps Engineers who are passionate about clean code and great journalism to join our growing team for full-time on-site work. Our engineers implement and deploy new features to TheAtlantic.com and CityLab.com where they are viewed by millions of our readers.
We welcome out-of-town applicants willing to relocate to the DC metro area but are currently unable to sponsor non-citizens unauthorized to work in the United States.
It starts with a resume, short cover letter, and a code sample – ideally a link to a profile on GitHub, BitBucket, or other service. If it looks like you are a fit, we'll schedule a phone interview to talk about the position, your work history, and talk through some technical questions. If we decide to move forward, we'll have you come into our office to meet the team.
