The NPR audience values information, creativity, curiosity, and social responsibility - and our employees do too. We are innovators and leaders in diverse fields, from journalism and digital media to IT and development. Every day, our employees and member stations touch the lives of millions worldwide.


NPR Digital Media is committed to delivering high quality listening, reading and viewing experiences across all platforms.

* Experience working with RESTful APIs
* Experience working with a version control system (Git preferred)

Other Required Skills:

* Creativity, initiative, thirst for innovation and acute attention to detail
* Vigor for crafting well-tested, well-documented and elegantly structured code
* Empathy for users and passion for crafting great user experiences
* Good oral and written communication skills

Bonus Points For:

* We are located in DC's NoMa district in a LEED Gold Certified building. We are 5 minutes to the metro and within 15 minutes of a great range of restaurants, retail, and culture (Union Station, H Street Corridor, and Union Market).
* We are diverse, lifelong learners. We read omnivorously from NPR's giveaway bookshelf (getting hints from the NPR Books Tumblr), regularly attend Tiny Desk Concerts, and edit bad grammar on milk cartons.

This position is funded for at least one year. During or at the end of that year, conversion to a full-time position may be possible, but not guaranteed.
