About the company

We are a cultural charity, a National Lottery distributor, and the UK’s lead organisation for film and the moving image. We believe society needs stories. Film, television and the moving image bring them to life, helping us connect and understand each other better. We share the stories of yesterday, search for the stories of today, and shape the stories of tomorrow.

At the BFI you’ll enjoy benefits such as excellent support for working parents, 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), tickets to BFI festivals and events plus many others.

We support diversity and inclusion, and as an organisation recognise that we need to address under representation within our teams. As such we strongly welcome and encourage applicants from our under-represented groups; who identify as D/deaf and disabled and/or are ethnically diverse. We guarantee a first interview to our under-represented groups who meet our minimum requirements.

Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity for two Software Developers to play an important part in the new
BFI ten-year strategy – Screen Culture 2033 – which sets out how we will advance our knowledge,
collections, programmes, National Lottery funding and leadership to build a diverse UK screen
culture that benefits all of society.

Digital access to BFI programmes – and our digital revenues – are critical to help us realise our
vision. The potential to deliver more of our work digitally presents us with a huge and
transformative cultural opportunity.

The digital ambition is that by 2033, we will have radically reformed all BFI services by making
them easy to use and widely available online, reaching more people and delivering more of our
cultural programme digitally.

As a Software Developer you will be responsible for the development of high quality software for
the BFI’s digital services, both public and internal-facing. We work in small product-focused teams,
using agile development techniques to build iteratively and incrementally with frequent feedback
from users and stakeholders. The BFI’s technology stack includes PHP, Laravel, Drupal, Javascript
and React.

We are looking for candidates who have:

  • Significant demonstrable experience in the development and delivery of web applications.
    In-depth knowledge of web development languages and frameworks with a demonstrable ability to learn new technologies quickly.
  • Experience developing applications backed by systems such as MySQL / MariaDB and Elastic.
  • An agile approach to software development with an understanding of the principles and practices involved.

At the BFI you’ll enjoy benefits such as excellent support for working parents, 25 days annual leave
(plus bank holidays), tickets to BFI festivals and events plus many others.

We support diversity and inclusion, and as an organisation recognise that we need to address
under representation within our teams. As such we strongly welcome and encourage applicants
from our under-represented groups; who identify as D/deaf and disabled and/or are ethnically
diverse. We guarantee a first interview to our under-represented groups who meet our minimum
requirements.
