National Journal

Django/Python Web Developer @ National Journal

Location: Washington, DC

Job Posted: 5 months, 2 weeks ago

National Journal helps government affairs professionals stay informed about key movements in people, politics, and policy using journalism, tools, and intelligence. Our digital platform is built around a rich set of election and campaign finance data, demographic information, profiles of policymakers, editable slides, government directories, and our decades of non-partisan journalism. Election years are huge for our members (and for us) and 2024 is going to be busy and exciting.

Tech Stack: We use a Python 3/Django back-end with a Vue.js/TypeScript front-end (for our newest tools) and traditional Django views for our more established resources. Our devs are full-stack or front-end specialists and our projects are most often back-end focused (Python/Django). Other technologies in our world include Elasticsearch, Docker, Azure, Postgres, Jenkins, Pandas, and Less. We follow a frequent release cycle that lets us bring enhancements to our users in a matter of days.

We're a small team with good people, solid work-life balance, and interesting problems to solve. Apply or read more at:
