Code Something Newsworthy

The New York Times is dedicated to helping people understand the world through on-the-ground, expert and deeply reported independent journalism.

Our mission is simple: We seek the truth and help people understand the world. This mission is rooted in our belief that great journalism has the power to make each reader’s life richer and more fulfilling, and all of society stronger and more just.

The Times attracts talented and passionate people who produce and support the distribution of the world’s best news report — one that is unrivaled in its ambition, breadth and independence. All of us at the company — whether we gather news, explain why our journalism is worth paying for, defend our First Amendment rights or participate in the awe-inspiring ballet of printing and delivering the newspaper to a million doorsteps — know that the integrity of our journalism comes first.

Diversity and Inclusion

Building a diverse and inclusive workplace is essential to our mission. It enriches our news report, because journalists with diverse backgrounds reflect the society we cover. It’s critical for our business, because The Times must reach new audiences in order to grow. And it’s important for our people, who thrive in a workplace that is fair, inclusive and rewarding to everyone.

The Times has reported at length on issues surrounding diversity, but we are also focused on how to foster diversity and inclusion within our own company. Click here to view our 2017 Diversity Report: https://www.nytco.com/company/diversity-and-inclusion/diversity-report-2017/

Additionally, our Employee Resource Groups (E.R.G.s) bring people together as a way to educate and promote an environment of understanding, acceptance and diversity and inclusion among all employees. The groups also advocate to make The Times Company a welcoming place to work for all employees (example here: https://fairygodboss.com/articles/how-to-improve-your-company-s-parental-leave-like-these-women-at-the-times).

Learning and Career Development

We equally emphasize the importance of developing software and developing people.
Learning: As a learning organization, we are committed to ensuring all technology employees have the time, space and resources necessary to continuously learn and develop. In addition to a company-wide tuition reimbursement program, all technology employees set aside a week every year to focus on their own learning, development and growth. They can use these five days to learn anything they’re interested in, whether that’s via a conference, taking a formal class, creating your own self-directed study plan or any other mechanism you want to learn through.
Career Ladders: We understand the need to know what your next step is, so every role in technology has an associated career ladder that outlines the criteria and qualifications that are considered in promoting people to every role.
