A Lead Back-end Engineer is needed to join one of the UK’s major publishing houses, being a hands-on developer, as well as managing members of the team.

About the role

This role is working in a Native Apps team, inside one of the UK’s largest publishers, looking after well-known, household name newspapers. They’re working on a white-label product to be rolled out and customised across all their brands, while maintaining the same level of quality they’re used to in other areas of the Engineering function. It’s a primarily hands-on role, mainly looking after the back-end and cloud infrastructure, while also line-managing a handful of mobile engineers in the team.

They’ve got a number of products and innovations they’re looking to expand upon in the future, so there is genuine investment into the growth and success of this team.

What skills do you need?

The stack is mostly Node and AWS focused, however there will be experimentation with React Native in the near-future. I think the ideal type of profile would be someone who has good knowledge of JavaScript, but still very much back-end leaning towards the Node side, but capable and interested in working with React Native when it’s started to being used in the applications.

You’ll need good knowledge of cloud infrastructure, preferably AWS, and ideally experience using Lambda functions too.
