Full-stack web developer / designer
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.

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