Vox is a technology-driven media company. Our mission is to empower the most talented web voices and their audiences with Chorus, our exceptional publishing platform. We develop the highest quality content, conversations, and applications for an audience of over 30 million passionate people around the world.

We got our start innovating in sports media with SB Nation, the largest and fastest-growing network of fan-centric online sports communities. Then we moved into consumer technology news with The Verge and video games with Polygon. It is an exciting time to be at Vox Media. Come join us.

We're seeking an outstanding software engineer. You're a smart, friendly, pragmatic problem-solver who's passionate about making excellent products that are used by millions of people. Additionally, you:

  • Are a self-starter who can take a challenging task and run with it
  • Care deeply about the quality of your work
  • Communicate well
  • Have a solid grounding in object-oriented programming and fundamental computer science concepts such as concurrency, complexity theory, and algorithms & data structures

Ideally, you also have:

  • Experience building high-traffic web applications, writing complex and efficient SQL queries, profiling and optimizing code, and devising and implementing caching strategies
  • Built and deployed into production a non-trivial Ruby on Rails application
  • Worked on small development teams and with remote team members
  • Experience building JavaScript-driven interfaces using frameworks like jQuery and Backbone.js
  • Experience using a variety of programming languages and frameworks
  • Passion for sports, gadgets, video games, or online media and journalism
  • Love or strong tolerance for animated GIFs and bad puns; competence with a nerf gun

For more on the things we're building and problems we're solving, and what it's like to work on the Vox product team, see our product team blog and Press Reset, the documentary about the making of Polygon.

We encourage candidates of all experience levels to apply. If the above doesn't describe you, tell us why you would be great at Vox anyway.

About working at Vox Media: This is a permanent, full-time position with benefits based in Washington DC or New York (we'll consider outstanding remote candidates). Our investors include Accel Partners, Allen & Company, and Khosla Ventures (some of the same people who invested in Facebook and Etsy). You'll be joining a team of focused, hard-working, creative people who are passionate about creating for the web, building tools to foster online community, and doing work that's challenging and fun.
