Job opening: Digital media developer

We are launching a little project here at the Emerald to change the future of journalism.  Yeah, we know. It’s ambitious and a bit audacious. But we like to think big. It’s who we are, and it’s what the moment calls for.  Technology has revolutionized the journalism business. It’s time that we hire the right people to lead our own revolution.

We are looking for someone who can dream up the digital products that best serve the UO community, then go build them. We will work together to build cool stuff that makes people’s lives richer, easier or more entertaining.

To do this, we need a programmer who knows his or her way around code, but who is also a thinker and a doer, a journalist and an entrepreneur. We need someone who is comfortable working in a creative, fun and fast-paced environment.

The digital media developer job is a salaried, full-time position with health and dental benefits and pays $40,000 to $50,000 per year. It’s a pretty sweet gig.  Every legacy media company in America is trying to re-invent itself for the digital age. Why not do the work for one of the country’s top college news operations? The Emerald, an independent nonprofit company, has won the Pulitzer Prize of college journalism– the Associated Collegiate Press’ Pacemaker award– twice since 1997 and has been finalist five other times in print and online categories.

To apply, email a cover letter, resume, three references and relevant work samples to We need to get to work quickly. The position will be open until 5 p.m. Friday, March 30 and we plan to fill it soon after.

If you want to lead a revolution, come work for us.
