The Financial Times is one of the world’s leading business news organisations, recognised internationally for its authority, integrity and accuracy. The FT has a record paying readership of one million, three-quarters of which are digital subscriptions. It is part of Nikkei Inc., which provides a broad range of information, news and services for the global business community.
We are passionate about building technical solutions to ultimately enable the highest quality of journalism. As a team we believe trusted high quality journalism plays an important role in a post-truth, post-fact world.
We are a vibrant and diverse group of people from different backgrounds, and with different interests outside of tech. There are over 2,200 employees across our offices (London, Sofia, New York, Manila, Tokyo, Hong Kong), and we are deeply committed to furthering equality and diversity, not just in our organization, but in the wider tech industry. FT is part of the Tech Talent Charter, where we have committed to reaching gender parity within the Product & Technology department by 2022.
We make it our priority to provide the most flexible conditions for everyone, including flexible working hours, the capacity to work from home when needed, part-time flexibility for almost all our roles (from junior to director), a 35-hour work week, 10% time and more.
We have very active communities which you are welcome to participate in such as FT Women, FT Embrace (our BAME network), Proud FT, and ad-hoc social events such as regular board games and quiz nights, netball, rounders and football.
We firmly believe that the success of our products and teams is strictly tied to the success of our people. In FT Tech we invest in you as an individual at every step of your career, supporting your professional growth as well as your personal development.
Most engineers that move into senior tech leadership positions in FT Technology every year have started out in more junior roles. Throughout their FT careers they’ve acquired not just the technical skills required for complex new challenges, but also the professional and social skills to support the development of newer junior members.
As part of FT Tech you will have access to all of the support and tools you need to have a successful, growing career with us, as well as those you may want to leverage to support the growth of others around you.
You will also have the opportunity and our support to attend (and speak at, if you’re inclined) world-renowned tech conferences to further develop your skills every year. Furthermore, you’ll have access to fully funded professional certifications, internal and external workshops and tech talks.
Our tech stack includes, but is not limited to:
We take an inside look at the world's leading global business publication; The Financial Times.
You’ll have the opportunity to hear from:
Nikita will be discussing the importance of tracking production changes, Melanie will be sharing her expertise around creating inclusive bots, Tatiana will be discussing all-things incident fun with Google and Chris will be talking us through his career journey and progression from junior to senior, all whilst working at The FT.
This session is moderated by Ehi Grace Anteyi, Marketing Executive, hackajob.
