Allow me to persuade you

The newsroom is a crucible. We work on tight schedules with hard deadlines. That may sound stressful, but check this out: with every project we learn from our mistakes and refine our methods. It’s a fast-moving, volatile environment that will make you more awesome, every day. Job perks include…

  • Live music at the Tiny Desk
  • All the tote bags you can eat
  • A sense of purpose

Also, NPR is a really super place to work, and you’ll make your mom proud.

Like what you’re hearing? Take a look at a few things we’ve built and check out our code on GitHub. You’ll be working at NPR’s Washington, DC headquarters – and we’re moving to a beautiful new building soon!
