News should be for everyone. But not when it’s buried under cat videos—or when your internet is spotty—or when it’s in a filter bubble. That’s why we created SmartNews.
Our mission is to discover and deliver quality stories to the world. To accomplish this:
We are a machine learning company. News should be impartial, trending and trustworthy. Our algorithms evaluate millions of articles, social signals and human interactions to deliver the top 0.01% of stories that matter most, right now.
We love content. News should be sustainable. We support quality journalism and respect publishers by sharing article traffic and revenue.
Please note that we will only consider you for one application at a time.
SmartNews is a technology company driven by our mission of delivering the world's quality information to those who need it. Our leading mobile news app has tens of millions of monthly active users in Japan and the US. Our goal is to grow SmartNews into a top global product, delivering quality information that supports millions worldwide.
One step toward achieving that goal is to create a feature so that our websites and article pages load lighting-quick and are easy to read.
Our engineers come from a variety of backgrounds from large, well-established companies to small ventures. We believe that employees with diverse sets of skills working together make for strong, cohesive teams.
As a frontend engineer, you are responsible for delivering quality information in a format that renders it instantly accessible and easy to read for both mobile and desktop products for both our Japanese and global users.
