A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Software Engineer to join a national, prestigious media organisation.
As a software engineer within one of PA’s Agile Delivery Squads you will be responsible for all aspects of the software development life-cycle; from gathering requirements, backlog refinements and planning sprints, through to deployment and support in production.
You will be joining a team using cutting-edge technology to re-imagine the way that PA creates and delivers content to organisations around the world. You will be able to bring your knowledge and passion for technology and software engineering to a fast-paced, technology-led, agile organisation.
Reporting into a Senior Software Engineer, you will be part of a culture that recognises the quality of it’s engineering, the importance of personal development and the need for a work-life balance.
You will build resilient, scalable and performant software. You will contribute to this culture by bringing in your skills to agile, cross-functional squads throughout the software development life cycle.
You will have a keen interest in automating everything - from testing, through to delivery pipelines and building infrastructure-as-code solutions.
All our engineers work as part of a multi-disciplinary, cross-functional squad based around one of our primary business areas or product lines:
We build micro-services, within an agile scrum delivery framework focussing heavily on quality code, automated and quick running tests and infrastructure-as-code.
You will be able to demonstrate good levels of skill in the use of Java8, or Node.JS. You will also be able to pick up new languages and technologies quickly.
We are a data heavy business, so knowledge of SQL and No-SQL based data storage patterns and their associated advantages/disadvantages is desirable.
As our engineers interact with colleagues from across the business, both technical and nontechnical, good communication skills are essential.
The role is located within our Howden office in East Yorkshire, just off junction 37 of the M62. This is within walking distance of Howden railway station, with a park-and-walk facility provided. However, for the right candidate, home working is available.
This role will involve some occasional travel to our London offices to attend agile ceremonies and quarterly planning sessions.
