Backend Engineer Jobs in Media and Content

Backend Engineer Job Description

Backend Engineers are the web developers who build the server-side of a website, which includes the server, database and application. These engineers build this technology that makes the server-side function, which also powers the frontend, user-side of the website in the process. Industries that use the internet to connect with their audience will need a Backend Engineer to help them deploy a highly-functional website. Backend Engineers must be adept with server-side languages and tools, PHP frameworks, version control software and Linux. They often have a degree in computer science with an engineering discipline. Backend Engineers collaborate with business stakeholders to understand the direction of the business before coding and programming the server-side. They also work with frontend engineers, managers and marketers, so it is easy to understand why good communication skills and the ability to work well in a team is necessary.

Find Backend Engineer Jobs in the Media and Content Industry

Media and content companies produce content and deploy it via certain media platforms, including television, internet, radio and newspapers. It is an industry that is ever-evolving, with many media and content companies relying more and more on a strong web presence to continue their operations and bring their content to consumers in a more efficient way. Skilled Backend Engineers are a useful part of a media and content company’s web development team, helping to create the server-side logic of their website which powers the user-side. Without the backend logic in place, consumers would not be able to access the company’s website. Backend Engineers can ensure the business is well represented, contributing to a larger audience and increased profits.
