Back End Developer (Media Publisher) - London

£55 to £70k

My client, one of the UK`s largest media publishers are looking for a Back End Developer to be part of a small and nimble product team working closely with the editorial teams, enabling them to publish engaging content quickly and effectively across all digital platforms.

The business encompass an award winning portfolio of 5 national titles, 130 regional titles and over 500 digital products. They are experiencing phenomenal online growth, and the acquisition of Local World in 2015 has strengthened their presence in the local markets. They are well on their way to becoming the dominant local player online in the UK.

What will you do

Our teams are given ownership of their products and the ability to determine how those products develop. We strive to provide an environment where the teams can perform at their best. Each team owns its own agile process and modifies its practices to better fit its needs.
You will be designing, prototyping and implementing new exciting news products, and the work you`ll do here will ultimately be consumed by millions of people.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for an experienced engineer to join our Editorial Tools team. You are probably happiest working with server-side technologies, but have an interest in working across the full stack. You will have experience working within a web development team, be self-directed and happy to work on your own initiative.

Ownership and communication are also key. We are looking for people who care deeply about the code they write while at the same time are able to bridge the gap between the technical and the business areas of the company effectively. We want people who look farther than the technical aspect of the work and care deeply about the human aspect of our products.

What we are looking for

Writes well structured code that satisfies business expectations
Collaborative and non-hierarchical style of working
Happy to learn new technologies
Can empathise with business requirements
Can-do, positive attitude, proactive approach to problem solving

Other things we like to see in people are

Experience configuring and deploying via a CI/CD pipeline
Automated testing at different parts of the test pyramid
An understanding of HTTP, caching and how the web works
Optimising performance to scale to handle large quantities of content data and high volumes of traffic across numerous websites
Functional programming
