Technology Positions

Web Developer

About the Position

The Daily Cal is looking for front end engineers and web developers to work on an awesome, brand new website redesign. Because we’ll be rebuilding the website from scratch, you’ll get the opportunity to experiment with leading web technologies and set the standard for future Daily Cal developers. You will be responsible for implementing prototypes and mockups to create a site with top-notch content organization, ease of use, performance, and design.

We’re looking for somebody with a passion for detail and the persistence to iterate until satisfaction. Sometimes we have to build stuff fast, so deadlines can be stressful. Since we work as a team, you also have to play nice with others. Expect to collaborate closely with other developers, user interface designers, and our editorial staff. You will have flexible working time, but developers are expected to commit at least five hours per week, in addition to attending a weekly meeting.
