Our Digital Team is a product-centric organisation spanning many areas of technology and product development at The Economist.

We are actively changing our landscape, embracing microservices, engaging front end experiences with Isomorphic JS frameworks, continuous integration and tightening the feedback loop through continuous delivery.
