We are hiring a Front End Developer to join the BBC Research & Development Team on a 6 month fixed term contract.
The Internet Research and Future Services group is part of BBC Research & Development and builds prototypes, develops original research and solves problems. We work across most digital platforms and all BBC services by combining emerging technologies with anticipated user needs to develop applied research. We believe that the best way to think about ideas and problems is to create things and develop concrete examples - we do this to learn, influence and shape.
Our work has a particular focus on the internet and on user experiences. Right now, for instance, we’re particularly interested in opening up our archive by making it easier to discover great content and in personalising the experience on connected TVs and radios.
Internet Research and Future Services is a multi-disciplinary team within the BBC's Research and Development department. As a Developer in our team you will contribute on a daily basis to a wide variety of different projects.
As part of your role you will collaborate effectively with R&D colleagues to develop and exploit new technologies and keep abreast of and contribute to developments in software engineering, open source and related technologies.

You will possess excellent command of HTML and CSS and the implications of developing for a wide variety of web-based platforms
You will be an enthusiastic supporter and user of open source technologies as well as experience of working in an agile environment.
