YouView is exploring ways to bring its award-winning User Experience to increasingly wide groups of users and devices through HTML5 technologies.

Reporting to a Front End Web Technologies team manager, we are looking for HTML5 Software Engineers to join our growing Software Engineering team.

The role provides the opportunity to work on various aspects of the software solution, including UX concepting, application architecture, API design, feature delivery, defect fixing, optimization, and tool development. It involves working with other delivery teams, and external partners, to produce integrated software solutions.

Key Responsibilities

We're looking for highly motivated people with strong problem solving skills, a curiosity for technologies, and a passion for user interfaces. Candidates must enjoy working in a team environment, but also be capable of tackling problems individually. Excellent communication skills and an ability to work closely with others are essential.

A commitment to delivering quality software is crucial, as is a strong understanding of the development practices that contribute to software quality using an agile mind-set (unit testing, test-driven development, version control, continuous integration, code and design review, etc.).

Applicants will have at least 5 years Software Engineering experience, obtained in a commercial environment. Strong understanding of the challenges and potential solutions required to build a large scale and slick UI in a resource constrained and asynchronous environment is essential.

Skills and Experience

HTML5 is an evolving collection of technologies, and candidates must have a deep understanding and hands-on experience of a good number of them. The role may evolve to use emerging technologies as they suit the needs of the project.

• Architectural Patterns (System decomposition, Micro services, Isomorphic code)
• Programming Languages (e.g. JavaScript ES5/6, NodeJS, TypeScript, Elm etc)
• Styling Languages (e.g. CSS3, Less, Sass, Stylus, etc)
• Frameworks & Libraries (e.g. React, Require, Rx, Web Components etc)
• Test Frameworks (e.g. Unit tests, Cucumber, Sinon, stbtester.
• com, Selenium, etc)
• Tools (e.g. Git, Gulp, Debuggers, Logging, Profilers, IDEs)
• Browser Technologies (e.g. Blink, WebKit, V8, JavaScriptCore)
• Browser Best Practices (e.g. DOM manipulation, CSS, Garbage Collection, I/O, etc)

Experience in any of the following technologies and software which support the rest of our software stack is also highly desirable:
AWS / Bash / C++ / DBus / DVB / HTTP / IPTV / Jenkins / Jira /Linux / OS X / Photoshop / Python / SQL / TCPIP // Virtual Machines
