A Full-Stack JavaScript Engineer is needed to join one of the UK’s major publishing houses, working in an exciting product-focused Labs team.

About the role

This role is working in a new Innovation/Labs team, inside one of the UK’s largest publishers, looking after well-known, household name newspapers. They’re working on a number of exciting products they’ve ear-marked as having the potential to scale significantly, while also evangelising innovation and experimentation, and knowledge sharing between teams. It’s a hands-on engineering role, allowing you to work across the full-stack of all the products, while expanding your knowledge and learning about the particular technologies at a deeper level.

What skills do you need?

The stack is mostly React, TypeScript, Node and AWS, but with use of React Native in the near-future. Commercial experience and knowledge of full-stack JS is a must, even if you are far more learning towards React or Node. Previous AWS, or other cloud infrastructure, experience isn’t 100% necessary for this role, but would be a big plus – but mos certainly something you can pick up and learn in this role. Interest in learning React Native or any side projects would be great too.

Ultimately the client is aware that very, very few people are the ‘finished article’ at this level, so don’t be afraid to apply even if you don’t feel you’re a perfect fit with all of these skills already!
