GBP 80k basic

My client, UK`s largest award winning News Publisher is looking to hire an Full Stack Software Developer, Revenue Team to join a small, agile development team in the context of a wider digital team that supports their editorial titles by exploring new technologies and partnerships in order to help monetisation of their content.

This news publisher has an award-winning digital portfolio comprising more than 50 titles and last year they sold 620 million newspapers, with 5.8 million readers of one of their brands each month. Their network of over 70 websites provide 24/7 coverage of news, sport and showbiz stories, with 8.1 billion page views per year.

Key Responsibilities

The Revenue team is focused on testing the performance of various monetisation schemes running on their websites and implementing new ones, as much as exploring related technologies.

You will be liaising with the team`s Product Manager and other relevant stakeholders on a daily basis to understand their priorities, analyse user data and apply technology to develop and optimise their online publications. You will be responsible for designing, testing and implementing improvements to their news products, and the work you`ll do here will ultimately be consumed by millions of people.

Tech Stack

Their infrastructure is in Amazon Web Services and as such they make great use of the different capabilities that provides. Their primary editorial tool is a Java based CMS on ECS that integrates with third parties such as Brightcove Video for specialist needs. Their supporting services are built with the appropriate tool as decided by the team. As some examples, they have services in Node.js and Java running on AWS technologies such as Kinesis, AWS Lambda, DynamoDB and ECS. They are strong believers in DevOps principles and infrastructure as code, and they are continuously trying to improve in that direction.

The Ideal Candidate

You will be a generalist, with backend experience and an interest in working across the full stack. You will have experience working collaboratively within a web development team with a non-hierarchical structure, be self-directed and happy to work on your own initiative.

Some other things that they would like in a candidate (you don`t have to check all to apply!)

Development experience (most relevant is experience with Javascript, Typescript and React/Redux)

Familiarity with 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

Can-do, positive attitude, proactive approach to problem solving

Happy to learn new technologies
