STV are looking for a talented PHP developer to join their team in Glasgow. Closing date for applications is Friday 10th August
We have spent the last three years developing ground-breaking services and platforms to create and share new kinds of digital content to anyone, at any time. With a growing reputation for punching above our weight, we are successfully competing with world-class services and creating buzz as we smash through ambitious goals.
We like to stay ahead of the game and put rapid innovation at the heart of new product development. We deliver products like STV Player, now the UK’s best commercial TV catch-up service, the stv.tv sites that deliver the best Scottish content to mass audiences and STV Local, our acclaimed hyperlocal initiative and the most exciting new project in Scottish journalism for decades. As part of our STV Anywhere initiative, we have also delivered mass audiences to iPhone, YouTube and PS3, and we’re now at the heart of the much-heralded YouView project.
With some very ambitious plans to build on our existing successes and connect with audiences wherever they find us, we are now looking for world-class talent to help deliver commercially and critically successful products to ever-larger and more engaged audiences.
To succeed in our world, you will be an internet obsessive with a keen eye on current and future trends; you’ll have the technical or product development skills to enhance and build on excellent products; and you’ll have a can-do attitude, striving to constantly refine and enhance our products. And you’ll never be scared to share an opinion or idea.
Front-end Web Developer
You’ll also be up to speed on platforms and methodologies including jQuery, MVC frameworks, source control and deployment techniques, client-side optimisation, caching and particularly how to apply these modern standards to a wide array of platforms and devices – mobile, TV, tablets and emerging technologies.
You’ll also have a firm grasp of accessibility and web standards, best practices in usability and user experience, with a careful eye for wireframing and information architecture – working in partnership with design and back-end development staff to create the rich engaging products which will greatly extend our digital reach.
You are passionate about user-focused, standards-based world-class development. You keep yourself abreast of the market, challenge the leading thinkers in the industry, and want to be at the heart of a nimble team, quickly turning ideas and emerging technologies into respected products.

The successful candidate will ideally possess a degree in Computer Science or equivalent, and with a proven track record of building compelling and robust applications in the web or mobile environment, you’ll work with industry-standard software and tools to create the applications which will greatly extend our digital reach.
Possessing expert PHP and MySQL skills, you will also have a grasp of emerging NoSQL and document-oriented database systems. In addition you will have experience of MVC frameworks such as CodeIgniter, or Zend, and object-oriented design principles. A knowledge of the LAMP stack, hosting and system maintenance is a plus, as well as experience of delivering very high-traffic, high-volume pages with a close eye on performance optimisation and uptime.
You will also have experience of search functionality (such as Sphinx, Elastic Search), API and Web Services. You are passionate about user-focused, standards-based world-class development. You keep yourself abreast of the market, challenge the leading thinkers in the industry, and want to be at the heart of a nimble team, quickly turning ideas and emerging technologies into respected products.
