There’s an NPR story today about the tech-driven turnaround at Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post.

“It nearly doubled its IT division to 250 people, [Chief Information Officer Shailesh] Prakash says, recruiting high-quality talent by selling them on a startup-like environment and a creative mission to save journalism,” writes NPR’s Yuki Noguchi.

Well, here’s one form that recruiting push has taken: a spiffy video with Siva Ghatti, the Post‘s director of mobile and web app development.

“I want to bring in disruptive change to media and the Washington Post gives me that opportunity,” Ghatti says in the video.

And you, too, the video makes abundantly clear, can join WaPo in this noble mission. In an email blast, in-house recruiter Victoria Rizzo points out that this senior developer job is currently up for grabs:
