Senior Node.js engineer


Job description

Senior Node.js engineer


Our client is currently undertaking a comprehensive modernisation of their entire way of working - technologically, inter-personally, inter-departmentally, and culturally. As such, they are looking to hire some top-drawer web development talent with proficiency in full stack Node.js engineering.

They are shifting their entire focus towards a completely product oriented mindset. The plan is to create small, highly efficient teams who can focus entirely on one particular product. These teams are going to be made up of a handful of developers, a product owner, and both a business, and data analyst.

All of this combines to provide an incredibly rare opportunity to do a number of things; work for a globally recognised media institution, embark on a revolutionary journey to the clouds, and also acquire a keen understanding of the financial and technical influences on your daily life as a developer (ambitions of Product Owner? Then fire off an application!)

Be part of a transformation that will reshape the way millions engage with media as a whole, work closely with analysts and utilise your high level of technical know-how to translate business needs into an IT reality.

Imagine the problem. Build the solution.

Role & Responsibilities

* You will be involved in the fragmenting of a monolith into smaller, individual pieces to improve efficiency, speed, and increase optimisation.
* You will work as part of an Agile Scrum team alongside equally talented developers, juniors who will need a mentor, and business analysts; offering an opportunity to rapidly acquire and hone a very rounded skillset.
* You will work the whole projects life cycle; building complex solutions from scratch based on highly customisable sets of requirements.

Skills & Qualifications

* Strong experience with Node.js is essential
* Minimum of 5 years of experience working with Web Applications is required
* Experience working with CMS is essential (Labrador is a huge benefit to your application)
* Experience working with Cloud technologies (preferably AWS)


* Great salary and benefits package - coming from one of the most stable companies on the planet
* A strong social environment where teams and close-knit colleagues flourish
* A rare opportunity to join a behemoth in the media industry on their journey to become cloud-native
