Job Introduction

BBC Future Media Platform is looking for an experienced, professional and enthusiastic developer to join a world-class team responsible for delivering next-generation content management and content delivery tools.

CPS is the BBC Online’s main content production tool for BBC News and BBC Sport – as well as many other Online properties. The CPS consists of a suite of journalist- and editor-facing interfaces, as well as the services and components which power and support these. We’ve got new requirements to build a new UI (and more) designed from the bottom-up to meet changing editorial and product propositions. You could be part of this team at a critical time – at the start of a roadmap of exciting new tools for journalists.

The role requires an excellent knowledge of XML, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, accessibility, web standards, and experience of working in an agile team delivering large scale web applications using TDD & BDD.

Role Responsibility

  • Design and implement web applications and content management components to specification that are efficient, scalable and well abstracted, using a mix of server side and client side technologies
  • Write unit and functional tests using test driven development (TDD) and behaviour driven development (BDD) techniques to ensure code quality
  • Liaise with product teams to explore and suggest appropriate technical solutions to achieve the required product features while safeguarding reliability, scalability and performance
  • Work with all relevant parties on the deployment to the live site and all intermediate hosting environments

The Ideal Candidate

  • Extensive experience writing software for large scale, distributed web applications using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML and JSON
  • Experience with front end frameworks such as Backbone, Angular and Bootstrap
  • Experience of accessibility, usability and finding solutions to cross-browser issues
  • Experience and enthusiasm for working in a TDD/BDD environment; a strong communicator comfortable with pair programming and collaborative working
