.Net Software Engineer - eCommerce - Watford
C. £65k per annum
Do you care deeply about your work? Do you have an interest in retail and eCommerce? Have you always wanted to build something big, from the ground up, and to really put your mark on something? Yes? Then, this could be for you!
We have built our own eCommerce platform from the ground up so that we have full control over all the features we need in order to deliver the very best customer experience possible.
Our Founder lives and breathes eCommerce and is incredibly passionate about providing the very best service possible for his customers. The rest of us bring years of experience from a myriad of big retailers including Mothercare, JoJo Maman Bébé, ASOS, Marks & Spencer and Tesco. We ultimately believe that shopping for little ones should be as enjoyable as shopping for yourself.
About the role
You will be heavily involved in the customer-facing site; prototyping, design, scoping, and planning of features. Customer is king here, and you'll be key to delivering the very best we can to them.
You can expect this role to be a well-rounded and all-immersive engineering opportunity where collaboration really is at the key of everything you'll be working on. You will work closely with our CTO, and our lead software engineers, to shape the database and view models and ensure that the front and back-end implementations are executed harmoniously.
A bit about the tech!
- The server-side framework is an NET MVC5 application running on ASP 4.7. We use Raven, Azure Table storage, Azure blob storage, and SQL Azure. Our apps communicate via queues and subscriptions. We use Visual Studio for development, but the way we're set up plays nicely with your editor of choice. We test using NUnit and our own little framework called MicroSpec.
- We think Domain-driven Design is awesome and it inspires and informs all architectural and code design decisions.
- We use Google Apps for everything that concerns day-to-day working. Oh, and we use Zeplin for collaboration between the developers and the designer. Did we mention Trello? We love Trello. And we loooove Slack.
- All our code lives in Git. We build and deploy using AppVeyor. Everything runs in Azure with App Insights providing extra monitoring. We do not use Active Directory and probably never will.
