About the Chorus Teams

The work of editors and creators at Vox Media today cannot effectively be met by tools designed for a decades-old media landscape. You can no longer assume anything about the way visitors are reading and viewing your work, where they encounter it, or what other shapes it might take; creators deserve tools that make the process of reporting, writing, editing, and producing content easier and more approachable. At the same time, our audiences are everywhere, and they look to us for insight through innumerable lenses and at all times. Vox Media’s Chorus teams design and build innovative new tools that facilitate both the work of editors and producers and the experience of devoted audiences.

The Role

  • Engineering Managers at Vox Media are still hands-on but spend the majority of their time focused on making their teams work better.
  • As an engineering manager for the Chorus team, you will prioritize and plan the work of the team in close collaboration with your engineers, the product manager and the designers.
  • You will actively coach engineers on their day-to-day work and their career aspirations, conduct regular 1:1s for your reports, and evaluate their performance quarterly—setting actionable goals that help them grow in the work and move the team and company forward.
  • You will remove obstacles for the team to unblock their work.
  • This role will require you to recruit and hire great talent for the team by being an evangelist for the organization.
  • In addition, you will help shape the direction of our tech stack to address the evolving concerns of newsrooms in a rapidly-shifting media landscape.

What We Expect

  • You are a thoughtful, talented engineer who has good experience facilitating the work of their colleagues and reports.
  • You have worked in a matrixed product organization, closely-coupled with designers and product managers.
  • You’re a respectful and empathetic teammate who is willing to go the extra mile for others, and you care about helping us create a diverse, inclusive workforce where we respect all and practice empathy at every opportunity.
  • You have some experience managing technical teams and guiding them to success, and you care deeply about the quality of your work and the team’s work.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
