  • Knowledge of testing techniques and strategies
  • Web services architecture, particularly REST and caching
  • Experience with operational concerns
  • Messaging system experience is also desirable
  • High level knowledge of relational and NoSQL data stores

We continually invest in our staff, and we offer a range of training and development including in-house and external courses, and attendance at conferences and events.

If you have talent, a real passion for creativity and want to join our ITV family, we have plenty to offer you. Everyone’s unique background and life experiences add huge value to our ITV culture.

Our people are our greatest asset and, as an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds to work both in front of and behind the cameras.
