NPR and its network of over 270 member stations across the nation are migrating to a new content management system. This complex, multi-year effort will require an experienced Software Engineer to build out additional platform capabilities in both the front- and back-end, as well as to integrate with additional backend services as required. This individual will join a cross-functional Scrum team consisting of 4 other software engineers, a product manager, technical program manager, designer, and Scrum Master who are working on this project. The new content management system is based on the Java-based Brightspot CMS offering; individuals applying for this role should be comfortable with working within vendor platforms.
