About the Company:

Established in 2002, TLA is an award-winning digital media business, acclaimed for its innovative technology in The Sunday Times Tech Track 100, Deloitte Tech Fast 50, FT1000 and Northern Tech 100.

TLA sits at the core of automotive digital customer acquisition in the UK, connecting global brands with in-market consumers as they research their next purchase online. TLA helps deliver this growth through a suite of owned digital assets, emerging technologies and a network of premium publishers.

TLA is a cutting-edge technology business that has built a diverse range of technology including our own ad-tech products, blockchain based customer acquisition platform, unique multi-channel contact centre technology and data distribution integration to each of our clients. We focus on bringing together the latest industry trends and technological advances to provide highly innovative products - an exciting place to be with great bespoke technology constantly in production.

We have four product focussed development teams, consisting of really smart and friendly developers who are already on a journey to adopt Continuous Delivery (CD). We run scrum, TDD and have automated testing to varying degrees. We are really proud of our technology and the modern agile practices we have adopted. But we are even more proud of our culture and putting people first.

We are also on a journey to adopt the right mindsets, approaches, and tech to keep the inherent agility of a smaller company as we grow. There's lots left to do and we're looking for people who want to bring their experience and approach to help make a real difference in that.

About the Mid-Level Developer Role:

Our Full Stack Developers work in our user facing teams, either facing consumers or internal users. This role is full stack focussed, working with the latest front and back end technologies for the company.

Our user focussed teams use modern JavaScript frameworks such as Vue.js to create consumer engaging content and systems or internal systems to enable our internal processes. We follow a modern approach to CD and IaC. But there's always more to do, we're on a journey. That's where you come in. You'll also be encouraged to question the status quo as we seek to continuously improve.

TLA embrace the latest technologies and as an individual you will have an opportunity to have a real impact in a more start-up feel, compared to a larger organisation.
