News UK

Help shape our digital transition

The Times is a 230 year old newspaper, the longest publishing national daily, and The Sunday Times is the UK’s widest-reaching quality Sunday newspaper.

 Our subscription-based business strategy provides us with a meaningful relationship with our readers and allows us to work directly for a dedicated, passionate group of news-junkies, who expect a best-in-class experience online as in print.

 Responsible for work such as the 2017 General Election hub‘Could you be an assistant referee’ video game, and The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants, you will use your judgement to inform how we best tell stories digitally.

 Use best-in-class technologies every day

We are a team that move quickly at the cutting-edge of web development. We primarily work with the latest in JavaScript, both on the frontend and the server with Node.js. React is our preferred front-end paradigm, and we use Flow, Docker, Webpack and more in our deployment pipelines.

 We are happy that there are different tools for different jobs, and are not scared to move into new areas or try new technologies when the opportunity arises, and enjoy experimenting with whatever gets the job done best.

 Hone your skills with challenging projects

The team works between short term agenda-setting stories decided with a few days notice; medium term newsroom projects, special supplements, and events such as the election and global sports; and long term tooling programmes and initiatives to improve The Times and Sunday Times’ abilities to move quickly in a digital world.
