Sherwood Media is Robinhood's new, independent media brand for news and information about the markets, economics, business, technology, and the culture of money. The story of money is the story of culture, and Sherwood is the secret weapon for the next generation of investors. Our team is making financial news more accessible, entertaining, and relevant by improving the way it is curated, shared, and consumed. We are building on the success of Snacks — our flagship markets and business newsletter — which has one of the largest audiences in the country.

About the team + role

As Sherwood Media's dedicated backend developer, you will be responsible for working with the product, operations, and editorial teams to ensure we have the tooling and data infrastructure we need to support our growing ad- supported media business. You'll work with Sherwood leadership to define the product roadmap and strategy, from resources and execution to vendor procurement and integrations. We're not trying to build things the way other media companies do -- we have a unique opportunity to build our product intentionally without a lot of legacy infrastructure. This could be a dream job for anyone who has worked in media across ad tech, data, or content management systems and wants to find ways to break the mold.

What you'll do
  • Design scalable system that supports worldwide traffic to Sherwood Media.
  • Lead on creating, testing and launching platform features that serves a variety of Sherwood Media products.
  • Work closely with Product, Editorial, Design and Data team to draft technical roadmap with a deep understanding of the business.
  • Collaborate with frontend team to create the state-of-the-art media technology.
  • What you bring
  • 5+ years of software developer experience.
  • Experience planning and leading large projects with long-term impact on a single system or team.
  • Experiences in media publishing workflow and technology.
  • Good understanding of common data collecting and analysis technologies.
  • Ability to navigate through ambiguity.
  • Our team is here to enable an inclusive and welcoming interview experience for all candidates. If you need additional assistance throughout the interview process related to a physical or mental condition, or if there is something our team can do to enable a more accessible experience at any time, please notify our team by completing this Applicant Accommodation Form.
