Greetings Jess!

You talked about different teams handling different tasks like a team for native, a team for the website, an analytics team etc. How many members does one team particularly have? Do they all use the same JS framework or different tools? And I am curious to know more about the internal CMS Washington Post uses.

Thank You.

Varies from team to team - I am on a small team (4 devs, 2-3 pms, 1 design, 1 manager) but some teams are much bigger. Each team can set their technology stack so there is some variance between teams. The internal CMS platform is actually much more than that - there are MANY tools that go into making WaPo.com from an editorial workflow tool, paywall, analytics, various embeds and plug ins ect. That is kinda our secret sauce that sets us a part as both a journalistic leader AND a tech forward company!
