About the Royal Academy of Arts
The Royal Academy of Arts (RA) is one of the UK’s foremost arts institutions. We are best known for our world-class programme of exhibitions, including David Hockney RA: A Bigger Picture, Anselm Kiefer, Ai Weiwei, Antony Gormley and our forthcoming Picasso and Paper.
This is a particularly exciting time in our history. Sir David Chipperfield CBE RA’s masterplan for the redevelopment of our 2.5-acre campus in Mayfair has now been realised, uniting our two buildings and providing Burlington Gardens with refurbished galleries, a state-of-the-art auditorium, new public spaces and a dedicated collections gallery. The General Assembly of Royal Academicians elected Rebecca Salter as their new President in December 2019, the first woman to hold that office in our 251-year history.
We are an innovative and forward-looking organisation, yet we’re also immensely proud and respectful of our heritage. Our mission is to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists, and we are leaders in exhibiting, creating and debating the visual arts and architecture.
About this position
We are looking for a developer to join our small internal team as we work on updating and consolidating our digital estate. You will have the opportunity to work on a diverse range of products, from our high-traffic public website and exhibition and ticketing micro-sites, to our internal organisational tools. You will be working in an agile and collaborative environment, alongside two developers and a technical lead, digital product managers, content creators and other members of the IT and digital teams.
We have big digital ambitions, and as a privately funded, independent charity, we are prepared to invest to make those ambitions a reality. If you think you can help, we look forward to hearing from you.
Please note this is an initial 12-month fixed-term contract.
