Job Description

Pitchfork (pitchfork.com) is expanding its dev team. We’re looking for a sharp Django dev with solid UI and UX skills.

If you want to hack on things like:

and help push us further, this is the job for you. Your contributions will be seen daily by millions of people around the world, and you’ll be a part of a design and dev team whose work has been praised for not only redefining music journalism, but influencing the medium itself.

About you: You should have real-world experience w/ Django 1.3+ as well as mysql or postgres. You should have a good eye for design even if you’re not designing the project. You should love music; ideally you’re familiar with the music we cover and the audience we cater to. Bonus points for experience with Jinja, Sass, Backbone, RQ, Redis, ElasticSearch or Solr, audio/video encoding, Vagrant; with AWS offerings such as EC2, RDS, SES, and CloudFront; with typography and grid layout fundamentals. Extra bonus points for familiarity with the infield fly rule, the ARP 2600, 2600 Quarterly, and/or Green Flash Brewery.

About us: We’re a small team of full-stack devs who wrangle everything from server management to front-end minutiae. We move quickly and fluidly because the publishing environment demands it — not that we’d have it any other way. We juggle a few large sites and several satellite projects, so we make sure we spend our time coding, not staring at whiteboards.

We code a lot, we’re rewarded by what we do (and win awards for it), and we’ve been known to have a beer while doing so.
