Full Stack Developer

U.S. News & World Report is a digital-first media company dedicated to helping consumers and business professionals make important decisions. We publish independent reporting, rankings, data journalism, and advice that has earned the trust of our readers and users for more than 85 years.

As a trusted authority providing empowerment and guidance that improves the quality of life for consumers and communities, U.S. News ultimately leads to better life decisions.

Your role in helping us shape the future:

We are looking for an enthusiastic Full Stack Software Developer with an interest in building dynamic, data-driven products who has had experience working with editorial teams to support and customize content management systems.

U.S. News empowers everyone to thrive. The developers at U.S. News have a great deal of independence and a minimum of overhead. By leveraging React.js, Python, AWS cloud, Google BigQuery, data science, conversational AI, and other latest technologies, you’ll be driving a major transformation within U.S. News.

We offer a casual work environment. Our offices are in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. We are also open to having this person work remote from anywhere in the U.S.

Are you up to the challenge?

This position requires comfort working with front-end development and web standards as well as backend technologies. In particular, it will involve close interaction with our editorial and content teams and a lot of hands-on development within our customized CMS. Our developers thrive in a collaborative environment but also excel at solving challenges independently. We use many different technologies and operate in many different environments, and we work together with designers, analysts, stakeholders, and testers to build products as efficiently and effectively as possible. We also believe in perpetual self-improvement, and expect our employees to continue to work towards developing their own skills and the skills of those around them.

You should definitely have experience with:

  • Modern JavaScript frameworks, such as React
  • Custom development on CMS platforms like Drupal, WordPress, Django CMS, Brightspot CMS, etc.
    • We are looking for developers who have heavily modified models, APIs, extensions, or platform code; not just theme changes or configuration
  • Web styling with CSS preprocessors or CSS-in-JS
  • Modern JavaScript patterns and ES6
  • Server-side technologies, such as Python, Java, or NodeJS
  • Databases, such as PostgreSQL
  • Unix-based operating systems, such as Linux or Mac OS X, along with the shells and command-line tools available in those environments
  • Version control, such as Git
  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience

It would be nice if you had experience with:

  • CICD pipelines such as Jenkins
  • Cloud environments such as AWS
  • Data ingestion/transformation


What it’s like to work with us:

Talent is our best asset!

We invest in people with passion and potential who understand U.S. News’ dedication to our consumers.


  • Entrepreneurial, mission-driven culture with core values of quality and integrity
  • Focus on fostering personal and professional growth
  • Competitive benefits including paid vacation time, medical, tuition reimbursement, and training
  • Collaborative Work Environment ~ Fun, diverse, inclusive and ambitious co-workers
