Job Opportunities


February 2021: McSweeney’s is looking for web design help.

Attention web developers and web designers: McSweeney’s is seeking some behind the scenes assistance to keep our online operations going. Are you a Ruby on Rails expert who’s been dying to contribute a few hours a month to an independent nonprofit that helps bring great writing and important books into the world? We have a low-impact but very important position available to support our Director of Technology. Or, are you a web designer who’d like to be involved with an exciting upcoming issue of our Quarterly literary journal? We have a short-term project that needs some additional web design support this spring for a few hours per week. Please email with a short summary of your developer background and why you’d like to help. Be sure to let us know if you’re interested in the backend developer opportunity or the frontend design opportunity. These positions offer modest compensation and come with our undying gratitude, too.
