We are a team, sitting within the BBC’s broader Digital Publishing group, who develop and maintain two main products: One is a content management system providing for the needs of 300 digital products outside the News/Sport domain, including BBC Bitesize; the other is a system for gathering content that people in the audience send to the BBC – “User-generated content” – where the content flowing through our system may be anything between entries for competitions and eyewitness video for newsgathering.
You will find we are a motivated, flexible, pragmatic and inclusive team in which you will be able to learn and practice new skills as part of your everyday work, with the assistance and mentorship of several experienced engineers. We use remote/flexible/hybrid working practices in a way which facilitates a healthy work-life-balance for our people.
The BBC offers an inclusive workplace where the principles of fairness, respect, equality, dignity and autonomy are promoted and are part of our everyday goals and behaviour. We select candidates for our positions on the basis of merit and as an equal opportunity employer we value diversity and all of the benefits it brings.
We want the BBC to be as renowned for the quality of its engineering as it is for the quality of its content. We aspire to be the best so that we can engineer outstanding digital products, at scale. Working here in an engineering role means being part of a world-class team and a chance to do the most meaningful work of your career.
