Job Description

Comic Relief’s Technology team is on a mission to deliver the innovative, cutting-edge technology which will make us a truly audience-driven charity, delivering the social change to support our vision of a just world, free from poverty.

Our Engineering team prides itself on using leading-edge approaches to deliver digital products in a secure, scalable and super-efficient manner and we’re looking for a talented front-end engineer to join our sector-leading and highly motivated team and help keep us at the forefront of engineering innovation.

This role works across the engineering stack using JavaScript and TypeScript with Node.js, AWS Lambda, Serverless Framework, React, MySQL, and CI/CD, for example, and will design, develop and deliver exciting and innovative digital products and services in a secure, scalable and efficient manner.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Craft outstanding user-focused and data-driven digital products and services to engage with our supporters, partners and staff.

  • Participate in the vertical ownership of the entire software stack of individual products and services including, but not limited to, support, monitoring and full operational responsibility.

  • Service both internal and external stakeholders.

  • Actively engage with Open Source and technology communities.

  • Work on other products and tooling like Comic Relief’s testing stack, continuous integration and delivery pipelines.

ESSENTIAL SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES:

  • Commercial experience of developing full-stack JavaScript applications.

  • Commercial experience of most of the following technologies: React; Serverless Framework; MySQL; AWS; Elasticsearch; Node.js; and Concourse/CircleCI/GitHub Actions.

  • Understanding of 12-Factor Application development and its application across a stack, or experience of applying a comparable methodology in a modern web development team.

  • Experience of running and maintaining production workloads hosted on AWS or similar top-tier cloud providers.

We recognise diversity and inclusion are a source of strength in achieving our mission. We therefore welcome everyone, trusting what makes us different brings creativity, styles and experiences to help us collectively do our best work. That’s regardless of your gender, age, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation, and cultural identity. We especially welcome those from under-represented groups in modern grant-making and fundraising. We are on a journey, but if you join our team you will be part of a community that is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment where we want you to:

  • Be valued for being yourself

  • Do your best work, and be supported to break down barriers so you can succeed

  • Be heard, respected, and treated as an equal, whatever your level, experience or background

  • Be part of a team that is committed to making this happen – with our colleagues, partners, and contributors.

Comic Relief is committed to preventing and protecting all people from harm in their interactions with us. We expect all those that act in our name to uphold our approach to doing no harm.
