Are you a junior developer who is ready to step up and run the show? You might be the right fit for us. We are building a team that is agile and move quickly. We want to try new ideas and concepts. We want to experiment and push the limits of what is expected. We want to find new ways to disseminate information to the largest audience in Central Washington. The ideal candidate will have the technical savvy to build a website from the ground up and the vision to see beyond just the 0s and 1s. We recently implemented a new content management system to handle the heavy-lifting of our core products, and are looking for the person who can look inside that engine and get the most out of it. Using your programming skills, you will create tools that we can attach to our system to bring our most valuable asset – content and information – to life. Technically, you are proficient in one of the following languages: Python, Django, Ruby or PHP, but have the aptitude and desire to learn anything you are given. Ideally, you will have 2-3 years of full-time programming behind you and can bring to the table ideas and suggestions for how we can improve. We are a small group, so teamwork and the ability to communicate are vital. This is the ideal opportunity to have responsibility and the latitude to try new things and grow your skills. If you are proficient in understanding and manipulating data for an audience, then we want to speak to you.

Application forms are available in the Human Resource department (8am to 5pm) at 114 N. 4th Street. Yakima, WA. Feel free to email your resume to hr@yakimaherald.com.
