The Guardian


Guardian News & Media (GNM) publishes, one of the largest English-speaking quality newspaper websites in the world. Since launching its US and Australia digital editions in 2011 and 2013 respectively, traffic from outside of the UK now represents over two-thirds of the Guardian's total digital audience. In the UK, GNM publishes the Guardian newspaper six days a week, first published in 1821, and the world's oldest Sunday newspaper, The Observer.

The Guardian is most recently renowned for its Pulitzer Prize and Emmy-winning revelations based on the disclosures made by whistleblower Edward Snowden and is the most trusted news source in the UK (Ofcom digital media report, 2014). The Guardian is also known for its globally acclaimed investigation into phone hacking, the launch of its groundbreaking digital-first strategy in 2011 and its trailblazing partnership with WikiLeaks in 2010.

As well as one of the world's leading news organisations, the Guardian was one of the first major organisations in the UK to adopt Scala, which we've had in production for 6 years. These days almost all of our server-side software is written in Scala. We deliver continuously into production, releasing 100s of times a day and work on everything from the tools our editors use to produce our journalism, to the big data crunching used to analyse how our readers use our site.

We expect developers to be a part of deciding what to build, not just how to build it. We love to learn. We value diversity and a healthy balance between work and your life outside it. If that all sounds interesting, you can find out more at
