What kinds of opportunities exist for technologists at The Philadelphia Inquirer?

It’s a really exciting time to work here. We’re in a unique position right now where we can focus on what we want to do and what we want to build.

Because the industry is changing so fast, there’s a lot to explore and figure out. It’s challenging because it’s completely new territory.

Currently, we’re looking to make 10-15 new hires in Engineering, Design, Product Management, UX Research and Scrum roles.

How can interested job candidates get a better feel for the kind of technical work they might do there?

Visit Look at what we’re producing online. We’ve been doing a lot of creative work on the site.

There’s an opportunity to get your hands on so many different types of projects: the website, the app, the digital storytelling of investigative pieces, etc.

What exciting things are happening at the organization these days?

One thing we’ve done recently is to create “The UpSide.” It’s a section of the Sunday Inquirer and that only features positive stories happening across Philadelphia. It’s a nice way to add light into readers’ lives when the news can feel very heavy.

There’s also been a big push internally for more inclusivity in our reporting. We’re making huge strides to dive into, uncover and report on stories that represent all Philadelphians in all communities. We’re serving an increasingly diverse city and region, and we’re passionate about covering all of it and about making sure our workforce reflects our region.

How does The Inquirer tackle career growth and development?

Though there is no formal structure, we encourage internal growth in many ways.

We love to build from within, from filling roles internally to enabling employees to follow their passions and build new skill sets through mentorship, access to courses, side projects and weekly digital trainings. 

We’ve also just launched our Employee Resource Groups. There is a Women’s, Multicultural, and Volunteer and Veterans’ ERG. It can take shape in many ways. We might bring in speakers, have lunch-and-learns, or host events internally or out in the community. It’s another way for employees to engage, break down workplace silos, get mentorship and professional development, as well as grow in ways you don’t get to on a day-to-day basis at the office.

Tell us about the internal culture at The Inquirer.

We’re mission-driven and that bleeds through every single department. Our goal is always to be the go-to resource for news and information in the greater Philadelphia area. Everyone is very collaborative in that effort. We are all working towards the same goals; it’s very cohesive. 

We have been doing a lot more lately to add some fun and engagement to the office culture. We started First Fridays to encourage people to mingle and get to know one another better, as well as established more social activities like ping pong and sports groups.

What is it like to work in a news organization?

It’s a lot of things. It’s hectic and takes a lot of hard work. But it’s also incredibly inspiring and rewarding. You get to see the impact of your work and the changes that the news you helped deliver has on the community.
