Careers with Stanford Web Services

Stanford Web Services is searching for creative and collaborative people to join our team.

Here’s what we do

Our mission is to build beautiful, mobile-responsive, secure, and accessible websites for Stanford,  including,,,, and over 300 more.

We don’t build one site at a time: we build the tools to drive faster and better development for ourselves and others. (Yay open source!) We created a Drupal hosting platform called Stanford Sites, use Github to track over 80 features and products, are moving into scalable cloud-based services, and are evolving our product line -  Stanford Sites Jumpstart - to empower web communications by our schools and departments.

Everyone in SWS, from designers to developers, works directly with campus clients and partners, and we are committed to problem-solving using friendly and clear communication.

Benefits at Stanford

We work for the greater good. We don't have stock options or free lunches and dinners (though “Free Bagel Tuesday” is nice.) We'll pay for your Caltrain ticket, match-and-then-some your retirement contributions, help with your dependent's tuition, and provide healthcare options that include zero deductible plans. Stanford is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, which qualifies for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program with the Department of Education.

You can also take advantage of Stanford’s recreation facilities and libraries, get discounted tickets to sports and events, and more. Check out what makes it pretty sweet to work for Stanford:
