We are looking to recruit a Senior Software Engineer, JavaScript, AWS, Node.js 

Job Profile:

My clients Apps are two of the most well-known, well loved and most widely used apps in the UK, with many millions of daily users on each platform. This is an opportunity to work on the next generation of these products.

What we are looking for

Historically the app development team has worked alongside a number of backend teams that provide content driving the app. However, we are changing to adopt a new app architecture strategy closely aligned with the Backend for Frontend pattern. This means we are expanding the team to be truly cross-functional with app and backend engineers working alongside each other.

We are looking for an experienced Javascript engineer who can join the team and help develop new Node based backend. The development environment makes use of an in-house Platform as a Service infrastructure called Morph. You will leverage this to develop microservices that perform data integration, transformations, composition and then expose API endpoints for consumption by the News Apps.

Specifically we are looking for

An expert in:

  • Writing Javascript for backends
  • Developing clean, well structured, well tested code that is maintainable by others.

Familiarity with:

  • a range of test frameworks including Jest
  • in developing mobile optimised APIs
  • with Node.js
  • with AWS
  • with building microservice based architectures
