Duties & Responsibilities

As the UK’s most successful omni-channel retailer, e-commerce is a key part of our business - we run one of the busiest websites in the UK, driving a significant proportion of our sales. Our engineering practice includes 30+ teams, working on everything from Cloud platforms to mobile apps, from e-commerce functionality to machine learning. 

This is an opportunity to work as a lead Java/Kotlin software engineer on a cross-functional Agile development team. You will be working collaboratively with other highly skilled developers as well as BAs, Testers, Web Designers and User Experience specialists on technically challenging customer-facing projects. 

As a Senior Engineer you will have responsibility for the development approach and provide technical assurance on complex IT projects. You will also use your knowledge of software engineering to support shaping of new projects and support the professional development of less experienced developers.

Learning new skills is extremely important to us. Engineers are expected to continuously improve their skills and keep abreast of the latest technologies and techniques regardless of their experience or job grade.
