The Daily Wire is seeking a skilled and motivated senior web developer to join our Streaming Platform & eCommerce Development Team within our high-paced, direct-to-consumer organization.

  • Work across all phases of the software development lifecycle—planning, design, implementation, deployment, operations, and support
  • Communicate effectively and efficiently with all associates and business contacts and promote a strong sense of teamwork
  • Update management team on overall project, risks, and technology issues and propose suitable alternatives

Basic Qualifications

  • 3+ years of professional non-internship experience with front end, web or mobile software development using HTML 5, CSS 3, JavaScript, RESTful APIs, and Next.js
