Job Description

Full-stack web developer / designer, Digital Photography Review

DPReview.com is seeking a talented, passionate Web Development Engineer with strong visual design skills to help us craft the look, feel and functionality of the world’s most popular digital camera website.

You will thrive in a fast-paced environment, understand the consumer publishing space, have a passion for great UI/UX design, and want to play a critical role in launching the next generation of content, community and shopping tools for a passionate and active audience of photographers and camera lovers.

Our small, but growing development team works closely with the in-house editorial team. Fast, scrappy, development and testing, combined with regular (sometimes daily) deployment ensures no one gets the chance to fall into a rut and everyone has the opportunity to help shape projects from conception to delivery. Developers are expected to understand our audience, our goals and our unique position in the photographic industry, and to constantly strive for better, smarter ways to deliver the content, services and community tools that have made the site the success it is.

You’ll be excited by the opportunity to build interactive rich user experiences on a large-scale public facing website, and unfazed by the challenge of doing so whilst maintaining a large legacy codebase. You’ll also ideally have a portfolio of web and visual design that will wow us.

We’re looking for a visionary who can work closely with product management, engineering and company leaders to translate business needs into rewarding customer-focused solutions. You must be responsive, flexible, and able to succeed within an open and collaborative peer environment. If you have experience leading a team of developers, all the better - this role could involve people management for a suitably qualified candidate.

While we use Amazon’s technology and offices, DPReview has its own unique culture, with a small but cohesive team of editorial staff and developers. You’ll feel like you’re at a small start up, with scrappy, product-focused processes, but with all the upsides of working for a big company.

The role comes with considerable autonomy and offers an exciting opportunity to build amazing products that will be used by millions of photographers.

Preferred Qualifications


· Strong UX/UI design skills
· Experience taking a leading role in building complex software (preferably large scale public websites) that have been successfully delivered to customers
· Hands-on expertise in many disparate technologies, typically ranging from front-end user interfaces through to back-end systems and all points in between
· Solid database design experience with the emphasis on performance and utilizing non-relational database storages
· Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
· Experience in communicating with users, other technical teams, and senior management to collect requirements, describe software product features, technical designs, and product strategy
