The Communications Department's mission is to provide the tools, strategies, products and programs to support the brand and its content, and to continually grow Brookings’s impact and effectiveness as a change agent for public policy in the United States and around the world. This purpose is realized if we help our scholars raise awareness, set the agenda and shape the debate around the public policy issues they choose to address.
The Front-End Developer collaborates with graphic designers in the Office of Communications to code and develop data visualizations and page layouts that highlight research by Brookings scholars. The Front-End Developer also provides additional support to our website vendor on general site maintenance, as needed, as well as support and technical advice to the analytics team and other staff in the Office of Communications.
