Senior Full Stack Developer (Editorial Tools)&;-&;(KIN000283)

We are looking for a Senior Full Stack Software Developer to join &;the Editorial Toolsl&;team.

  • &;You’ll be working in a cross-functional team, which is empowered to rapidly iterate and release new features.
  • You won’t be coding in isolation - our culture is strongly collaborative, whether pair programming with other developers or working closely with editorial and commercial colleagues.&;

About You

  • As a full stack engineer, you’ll be equally willing to dive into a purely functional and composable Scala back-end, or a complex JavaScript front-end (using Flow, TypeScript, Angular, React etc).
  • You are passionate about spreading engineering best practice beyond your immediate team.
  • You are excited by the opportunity to shape the future of digital journalism.

More about flexible working

We encourage flexible working to better balance the needs of the company and employees as their circumstances change over time, and in order to attract and retain a diverse team. No two situations are identical, so please discuss with us at or before offer stage. In order to help applicants, here are some broad guidelines of the level of flexibility we are able to give for remote working. With the current pandemic situation almost everyone is currently working from home all the time, but this is a temporary situation and we are currently not forecasting to have people remote working all their time in the medium term, once the situation will enable people to commute and work safely from the office.
&;
If you are a full time employee and wish to work at home, expect to be required to work in the office while you get up to speed, and then at least 60% time in the office after that in order to maintain a relationship with the wider team. In the long term it may be possible to go as low as 1 day a week.
&;
We strive for transparency in remuneration. The salary for new senior developers at the Guardian is £65.2k.

We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds, different lived experiences and different perspectives. A diverse team means we can better reflect and engage our global audience. We believe in hiring the best people from the widest pool, and also in including them, fostering a culture where people’s voices can be heard and our employees look forward to coming to work.&;
&;
Application instructions:

To apply please upload your CV. You must already have the right to work in the UK.
Our interview process involves 2 stages: a face to face interview and a pairing test, we are currently running the interview process remotely.
