Smack dab in the heart of Washington, D.C., print publishing icon The Washington Post has some surprisingly juicy news for technologists.
When CIO Shailesh Prakash joined the company in 2011, he put an emphasis on his engineering team building its own tools rather than buying products. Together, they built a variety of tools customized for The Post’s newsroom — including its in-house publishing platform, Arc Publishing, a suite of software that helps publishers produce the fastest and highest-quality content around the world.
A couple years later, under the leadership of owner Jeff Bezos, Arc helped transform the Post into a full-fledged media technology company, bolstered by global demand and sales of its innovative SaaS offering.
This “build not buy” philosophy has continued to create endless opportunities for The Post’s technology teams to innovate and change the way readers experience the news.
