FT Technology provides world leading platforms to power the FT’s world leading content.
Our talented global team has a strong record for balancing innovation with delivery. The ways in which we provide FT content to readers are growing fast, with digital subscribers now overtaking global print circulation, and continuing to grow, at a monumental pace. Mobile devices now drive almost 60% of traffic and our digital circulation reaches more than 660,000 readers in over 70 countries.
We believe in multi-disciplined, co-located teams that are able to choose their own development methodologies. Teams typically follow Agile and Lean practices such as SCRUM or Kanban. Similarly most teams choose to practise Continuous Delivery or Continuous Deployment.
Based in central London, this is an opportunity to join our vibrant Technology team to experience and learn different disciplines. We use many different technologies and encourage our teams to experiment with more in an environment which promotes continuous innovation.
We are always looking for new members to join the team and currently have many exciting positions available as well as an internship programme and graduate scheme.
