Careers with Stanford Web Services

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

Here’s what we do

Stanford Web Services (SWS) is an award-winning agency within Stanford University providing web strategy, user experience, visual design, and web development services to the campus community. SWS oversees more than 2,000 websites and is part of University Information Technology (UIT), a 600-person strong organization supporting 100+ services for Stanford. 



SWS takes pride in our mission to care for Stanford’s ever-evolving web presence, because supporting the research and education mission of a renowned university can make a positive impact in the world. We create beautiful, secure, accessible, and effective websites, including knight-hennessy.stanford.eduengineering.stanford.eduourvision.stanford.edu, and many more. Everyone in SWS works directly with campus clients and partners, and we are committed to problem-solving using friendly and clear communication.

Also, we don’t just build one website at a time: we build tools to drive better development for everyone. We built a Drupal platform called Stanford Sites, use GitHub to track hundreds of features and products, contribute to open source, manage a pattern library for efficient and usable designs, and evolve our products - Stanford Sites Jumpstart - to empower communication by our schools and departments.

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: https://cardinalatwork.stanford.edu/benefits-rewards/sweeteners
