The Washington Post Opens New York Design Office

Washington Post logo GThe Washington Post is opening up a design and development office — called WPNYC — right here in New York City. The paper announced today that the new hub (led by director of digital strategy Sarah Sampsel and principal architect Greg Franczyk) will be tasked with updating WaPo’s website.

WaPo is always welcome in New York, but we’re especially happy to hear that WPNYC is hiring. The paper said it is looking to add at least 12 new staffers, including engineers, strategists and architects.

“We have seen great success by embedding a fast moving engineering team directly in the newsroom, and now we want to foster that same environment of accelerated innovation by embedding engineering within Sales in dynamic and vibrant New York City,” said WaPo’s chief information officer, Shailesh Prakash, in a statement. “If you are a software engineer looking to work in a fast-paced, innovative environment and make an impact in the media industry, we want to talk to you.”
