BBC Future Media’s ambition is to create the most valued open digital media services in the world. We want to transform the BBC for an interactive, on-demand world and find new ways of reaching audiences wherever they are, with new formats across PC, TV, mobile devices, gaming platforms (like Xbox), and recorders like TiVo.

About the roles

We work in a fast paced Agile environment with multidisciplinary teams, consisting of Software Engineers, Web developers, Developers in Test, Test Engineers, Project Managers, and Product Managers, and work closely with designers and editorial staff. We use our knowledge and application of audience research, new and emerging technologies, combined with creativity and collaboration across the BBC’s content divisions, to deliver world class digital products and services which deliver reach, quality, impact, and value for the BBC.

We're looking for web developers with a solid grasp of engineering on the front-end with demonstrable experience using PHP. You should have a strong grasp of Javascript including templating frameworks and associated test tools.

You'll be involved in defining and implementing a responsive design approach across our pages on multiple devices, so you'll need to be familiar with the key issues around making web pages responsive, and how to implement adaptive layouts in semantic HTML5 and CSS3. Some familiarity with MVC frameworks is also a plus. This is a great opportunity to join a high-performing team working on the UKs most popular products.

About you

We’re recruiting at all levels of experience, be that Junior, Mid-weight, Senior or Principal Web Developer. We’re looking for someone with at least a BSc in computer science or a related field, with excellent hands-on skills and proven industry experience with responsive design and HTML5, JavaScript, X/HTML, CSS3, PHP, and MVC frameworks such as Zend. Experience of writing code against RESTful web services (http, json, xml). You’ll also need experience of W3X standards, web accessibility, usability, and cross-browser quirks, and in test/business-driven development – creating automated tests as part of a continuous integration build to ensure consistent quality. You’ll know your design patterns and write well-structured, well-documented code that is a breeze to maintain, as you strive for perfection and elegance in the implementation of UX. You’ll also need excellent communication skills, as you’ll be partnering with colleagues to do pair programming and code reviews.
