About NewsNow

NewsNow is a rare beast: a UK-based 'dot com' success story; a publisher and technology company running the extremely successful news aggregation and discovery platform NewsNow.co.uk.

NewsNow presents curated and breaking headlines from around the world for those who want to read more widely, and think more critically. By presenting different perspectives and stories covered from a range of angles, it helps people to compare and contrast opposing viewpoints, spot differing presentations of the facts, challenge their preconceptions, make their own minds up, and stay abreast of topics they are passionate about.

Founded in 1997 to democratise and disrupt the market for news, NewsNow has built up a solid brand and huge, loyal user base. Our small & agile team, together with a focus on adtech and algorithms right on the cutting edge, has delivered a run of outstanding financial results and industry-leading success metrics.

Now in our 22nd year, we're in the fortunate position of having a proven product and the capital to invest in tackling some major growth and product development plans, both here in the UK and abroad, and creating even more social capital out of what has been an extremely successful platform.That's why we're expanding and now looking for permanent, back-end software engineers, who will work on a wide array of hard computer science and engineering challenges.

About the role

You will join our highly-experienced and multi-disciplinary engineering team, playing a leading role on some of our biggest challenges for 2019 and beyond:

  • A variety of technical challenges associated with launching NewsNow's first-ever US edition and other foreign language editions

  • Curating news content in real time for NewsNow's all-new general news service, using signals derived from news volumes, traffic flows, user engagement and ratings

  • Implement new ways of navigating between topics on our website based on new relationships between them

  • Improving our image extraction and reprocessing logic

  • Deploying suitable open source technology to provide an all-new news search capability

As a Senior Software Developer, your projects will largely be server-side. You will bring a sophisticated approach to problem solving, analysing trade-offs of different ways to achieve objectives, taking into account resources, technical limitations as well as scalability and security concerns.

You will also be expected to review others' code, contribute across the entire stack (according to your particular skills), and play a role in administering our systems and keeping NewsNow running 24/7.

At NewsNow, product development is a team sport. So you'll also be invited to collaborate with other members of our product development and engineering team in conceiving development efforts, researching and specifying planned product enhancements, according to your particular skills.

You and your skills

For this role you will need:

  • Advanced OOP skills in any modern high-level language

  • University-level mathematics covering linear algebra, statistics, and probability theory

  • Python 3

  • MySQL/SQL

  • An understanding of the principles behind great software design, allowing you to write complex code that's clean, fast and scalable

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • A track record of remote working or working with remote team members.

  • Familiarity with the Linux command line, bash, and Git

  • A BSc (Hons) or Masters degree or PHD in mathematics, computer science, or physics, as well as relevant commercial experience

In addition, some of the following will be an advantage:

  • TensorFlow, Keras

  • Database design, query optimisation skills

  • Perl, NodeJS

  • Debian, Ubuntu

  • HTTP, Apache2

  • JavaScript, jQuery, HTML

  • Cloud services such as Amazon AWS or Google Cloud

You're also someone who:

  • Is open to new technologies, but isn't a slave to them: you relish crafting elegant solutions to hard technical and business problems, using whatever is the best tool for the job.

  • Thrives in a small, open and collaborative team, where the best ideas can come from anyone. You're confident and articulate about what you know and what you don't.

  • Is passionate about news or sport, or creating the best product for people who are.

  • Lives within a reasonable distance of our London offices, or is comfortable working 100% remotely.

About our development team

We offer all the excitement and agility of a start-up, but with the stability and benefits of an established business.

Our highly experienced multi-disciplinary development team runs lean. Our compact set-up lets us keep hierarchy and bureaucracy to a minimum. Which means today, we're still a company where everyone who joins us gets to make a massive impact.

We're a developer-driven company. Two of the company's three directors are developers - and that includes the CEO. This means that development is core to the business, developers are appreciated for their creative input, and the importance of investment in development - and avoiding technical debt - is understood. ...

We operate a cutting-edge and bespoke containerised development model, that makes agile development convenient and cheap. For each new task, a disposable Docker container (talking to a disposable live database clone) provides a ready-built development environment running a full live NewsNow stack, complete with high-end browser-based IDE. This makes forking a breeze. From conception through roll out, branches and staged developments are continuously available as needed to developers and managers for collaboration and review.

We run a LAMP stack with Python 3, Perl 5, ES6, NodeJS and some C on the server-side, running on Debian Linux, deployed on co-located raw metal and in Google Cloud. We do our client-side development in HTML5, CSS3, SASS/SCSS, OO JavaScript and jQuery.

Benefits
  • Fully paid Bupa private health insurance

  • 26 days holiday plus bank holidays

  • NEST pension scheme

  • Competitive salary + bonuses

  • MacBook

  • Developer playtime for research & development

  • Budget for books and resources

  • Sabbatical proposals considered
