Archant Information Services is predominantly based in Norwich with support roles in our regional offices in Cheltenham, Barking, Stevenage, Ipswich and Weston-super-Mare. We are responsible for providing IT support to Archant’s employees throughout the Group. Day to day, this starts with our in-house 1st line Service Desk, through to 2nd and 3rd line technical support teams. Internal development teams support business needs and requirements to deliver small, medium and large projects as well as maintaining our in-house bespoke software for our editorial, design, finance, HR and sales departments.
Working as part of our development team, you will develop, maintain and enhance Archant’s Java-based website delivery systems. This exciting but challenging role will expose you to all aspects of the software development life cycle, from analysis of requirements to programming solutions.
You will also be familiar with Apache Tomcat, JBoss, Subversion (SVN) or similar and Apache Ant or Maven.
Familiarity with other programming languages such as Python and knowledge of various design patterns and frameworks is desirable but not essential.
A strong communicator, with sound troubleshooting and problem-solving skills, the successful candidate will be self-motivated and able to manage and plan their own workload to deliver against strict deadlines.
We are Archant. The UK’s leading local media company.
Archant people are driven, motivated and passionate about positive change.
We are proud of our history…of our trusted, market-leading heritage newspaper and magazine brands that remain an integral part of everyday life.
But we’re forward-thinking people too. We obsess about innovation, creativity, service and expertise, relentlessly striving to be the most engaging media in every community we serve.
We are on a mission to make digital marketing accessible to all. We build websites, provide complete SEO services and deliver targeted, bespoke digital campaigns that fit our clients’ objectives seamlessly.
We produce video, animation, e-newsletters, apps, blogs – content that brings storytelling to life.
We stage vibrant, celebrated, must-attend events where like-minded people come together…
And because we’re ideas people, we think fluidly. Our multi-award winning ‘New European’ national tabloid broke all records as the fastest newspaper launch in history – just nine days from concept to hitting the shops.
