We're looking for a development lead for the iPlayer Business Layer - the team behind the iPlayer API serving the website, mobile clients and devices.
Our tech stack is mostly Node.js with Postgres and Redis databases on AWS in microservices.
We're now averaging over 100 million API requests every day, with an average 2,000 req/s and a <7ms response time (that's for the past 7 days from now).
Some exciting projects we're working on include a machine learning one and a big priority for the year ahead is personalisation. Our open source projects currently see 40k downloads/month and we're keen to expand that.
It's a small team (2 senior engineers, 2 engineers (<- one of them is me!) and usually a graduate), and we're based in White City.
