Software engineers are at the heart of the future of the BBC for one simple reason: they are ones that will design the products and services which will form the foundation of our interactive TV output. So it’ll come as no surprise to learn that the team has won plenty of awards and that they are key to Future Media’s ambition to create the most valued open digital media services in the world. This is your chance to join them.
About the role
We want to transform the BBC for an interactive, on-demand world and find new ways of reaching audiences wherever they are, with new formats across PC, TV, mobile devices, gaming platforms (like Xbox), and recorders like TiVo. You’ll help do that by building TV experiences for all BBC Online products, and by defining and building Red Button services. You’ll also act as a central point of contact between the BBC and the TV device and software industry, presenting a single technical face to OEMs and platform providers.
BBC Future Media is the driving force behind the BBC’s digital media proposition. We design, develop and run digital services and products. Our aim is to allow audiences to enjoy the BBC’s best content via their preferred route, whether that’s online, mobile, or through internet-connected TV. This cutting-edge group is responsible for delivering the BBC iPlayer (online and on TV), the BBC News site, BBC Sport, BBC Weather site, BBC Children’s games on TV and online, the Red Button, the BBC Wildlife finder, BBC Lab UK and the BBC Radio 1 Chart, to name just a few.
About the benefits
We care about our people, and take our responsibilities towards them very seriously. As well as fair terms and conditions, we also offer really impressive benefits – including twenty-five days’ annual leave, a defined contribution pension scheme, life assurance, accident benefit, and interest-free season ticket loans. We also offer world-class opportunities to learn and develop inside the BBC. The BBC Training & Development Academy offers outstanding training in all areas of broadcasting – so good in fact that it also trains the wider industry. Join us, and you can help create the next generation of our world-renowned digital services, whilst developing your skills with the very latest technologies.
