TPM Media LLC, the company that owns Talkingpointsmemo.com, is looking for a software developer with design chops. In this role, you’ll be leading innovation at a site TIME Magazine called “the prototype of what a successful Web-based news organization is likely to be in the future.” The developer will be responsible for creating new site functionality, making interactive graphics and maintaining existing technology. Projects may include building editorial layout applications, implementing internal analytics packages, and improving news apps such as our TPM PollTracker (http://polltracker.talkingpointsmemo.com). The developer may also build mobile applications (native and web-based), a flexible asset management system, and improve our content management system.
The ideal candidate has experience in a Ruby environment (both plain old Ruby, and Rails/Sinatra), has expert front end skills (semantic HTML, CSS, JavaScript + jQuery, Photoshop), is competent in a *nix shell + Git, and has worked with databases (especially MySQL). Experience with NOSQL or Perl is a bonus. A deep understanding of template-based blogging platforms like Movable Type or WordPress is also a plus. We prefer candidates who are obsessive about latest web technologies, online news and social media. In our business things change rapidly, so the developer must be able and eager to to learn new languages and frameworks on the fly.
A good design sense is a must. A background in journalism is preferred.
If this sounds like you, drop a note to talk@talkingpointsmemo.com with subject line “Designer/Developer.” Include a resume, cover letter and some work you are proud of (GitHub account too, if you’ve got one).
