Sifted is bringing a distinctive European voice to the global tech debate.

We are in beta, so go easy on us. But if you want to help us improve faster, we’d welcome your feedback.

Sifted is looking for a front end developer to join our fast-growing team of journalists, engineers, designers and data analysts, and help us build a new media platform for Europe’s startup community.

About us

At Sifted, we’re taking a fresh look at Europe’s startup and tech world, and building a diverse readership and community of founders, investors, innovators, thinkers and makers. We want to become the essential, trusted and independent resource for European tech – and our early team members will play a big role in making that happen.

We’re backed by the Financial Times and based at its London HQ, but we work as a small, nimble, independent team. We value interpersonal skills as much as coding skills, and care deeply about supporting each member of our team’s personal growth and development.

The role

You’ll work with our tech lead Duncan and design lead Gaetan as the third member of our product team.

Your day-to-day work will include:

As this is a new project, you will have significant say in the technologies we use. While we expect to use a modern front-end framework like React, if you preferred to work in ClojureScript or TypeScript, for example, that would be welcome.

About you


Nice to have

The next 12 months

Sifted is a new company with 10 employees. Over the next year we will grow far beyond that, picking up journalists across Europe and expanding our tech team here in London. As this happens, you’ll have the chance to level up your technical abilities as well as — if you like — your leadership skills.
