Job Information

Dow Jones Principal Engineer, Engagement in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

You’ve been building user-facing applications for years. You relish the opportunity to work up and down the technology stack to solve technical challenges. You’re just as excited to ship user experience improvements as you are designing new serverless architectures to support those features. You enjoy prototyping new ideas just to see if they’ll actually work. You frequently take the lead on important projects and have strong opinions on team process. You’ve been a passionate mentor to the engineers around you and maybe even held a management role in the past.

Join a new team at The Wall Street Journal that will focus on building new user experiences to help our readers get as much value as possible out of our products. The Reader Engagement team will solve user problems through research, experimentation, design and implementation of new features across our web and mobile properties. We’ll be reimagining how users interact with our world-class journalism through experiences tailored to their needs and building new virtual communities to facilitate connection and conversation.

You’re looking for more than just another engineering job. You firmly believe in the public mission of journalism and its importance in our society. You want your work to have an impact.

You will:

  • Design and lead development of cross-platform web and mobile solutions to solve business problems.

  • Work closely with journalists, designers, data scientists, product managers and other engineers to build innovative solutions to current and future newsroom challenges.

  • Help set technical direction and long-term strategy for future initiatives.

  • Play an active role in the product development process.

  • Mentor and support junior engineers across all WSJ engineering teams.

  • Keep an eye on technical innovations and changing trends in the mobile landscape.

You are:

  • An experienced full-stack engineer with several years in a lead or management role

  • A creative thinker and problem solver, able to distill complex problems down to actionable items with simple solutions

  • Familiar with modern web development practices, with direct experience in React, Node.js, and cloud-based architectures (AWS a big plus)

  • Comfortable leading teams of engineers as well as working hands-on throughout project delivery

  • Passionate about shaping a strong culture of engineering excellence

  • Excited about the future of the news industry and being a part of our evolution

If this describes you, then we’d love to talk to you!
