Interested in being a reporter for E&E?

E&E is always looking for top editorial talent. If you are a superior reporter and writer -- and you want to cover one of the most interesting policy areas on Earth -- we'd love to hear from you. E&E is not looking for bloggers or advocates. We want serious journalists who are politically savvy, write compelling copy and can't stand being beaten when pursuing a story.

Web developer, junior-level

Environment & Energy Publishing (E&E), a subscription-based online news organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., seeks a junior-level web developer to join our five-person tech department.

Working closely with three other in-house developers, the junior-level web developer will use Backbone, Coffeescript, and Sass to build rich web applications on top of Ruby on Rails backends and Sinatra web service APIs. We're looking for talented applicants who can work up and down our software stack, but with an emphasis on the frontend, to help create internal apps for our editorial and sales staff, as well as new features for E&E's public website. A solid understanding of responsive design and semantic HTML is required. Familiarity with MySQL and Redis is a plus; experience with Node.js and npm modules is even better.

Finally, the ideal candidate has a strong knowledge of object oriented programming and a willingness to learn.

Required Qualifications

  • Experience with Backbone, Coffeescript, Sass, Ruby, Rails, and Git.
  • Well versed in both Javascript and CSS fundamentals.
  • Ability to write clean, maintainable code.
  • Solid design sense, with the ability to craft visually appealing and intuitive user experiences.
