Contract position, 2-4 months, possibility of extension
40 hours / week
The internet has a people problem.
Many online communities are fragile, toxic spaces. Some people have given up on engaging altogether. But we believe that healthy online communities can exist, given the right systems and tools – and that the future of journalism depends on strong online relationships.
That’s why Mozilla, The New York Times, and The Washington Post have come together as The Coral Project. We build industry-leading open source software that brings journalists and the communities they serve closer together.
We’re looking for a full-stack developer to join our team on a contract basis for at least the next 2-4 months, to help us create amazing user experiences on our open-source comment platform.
You have strong background in developing Node applications that are secure, scale, play well with other apps and are a pleasure to extend and maintain (or as close to pleasurable as maintenance can be.)
You’ll architect and implement features, and also have the opportunity to work with teams in newsrooms across the world who are integrating our platform onto their sites. You’ll work either from New York, inside the New York Times, or remotely.
This is a contractor role beginning asap.

If you’re deeply interested in working on full-stack development and have relevant skills and experience, please consider applying even if your background doesn’t perfectly match our ideal credentials. We are committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.
The first phase of the project runs until July 2017. There is a strong possibility of continuing with the project beyond that date.
