Job Opening at Stand to Reason

At Stand to Reason, we emphasize clear and concise communication about ideas that matter—the Christian story of reality. You can be brilliant, but if you don’t communicate well, your ideas won’t make a difference in the lives of people who need to be reconciled to God. By God’s grace, STR has trained thousands of Christians to “think more clearly about their faith and to make an even-handed, incisive, yet gracious defense for classical Christianity and classical Christian values in the public square.” 

One of our main platforms is our website, and we want it to be the best it can be. So we’re looking for a full-time employee, a UX engineer, who can help us create a world-class, user-centric experience on our site that fosters engagement and training in the Christian worldview. We’re looking for someone to help us design what will be the primary training platform STR has.

We’re looking for someone who affirms STR’s statement of faith, is enthusiastic about helping STR develop an excellent platform, and who loves what they do—because everyone at STR does. The candidate would also need to be willing to relocate to Southern California.
