We’re looking to strengthen our team of Magento ecommerce implementation experts. Working with leading brands, projects will range in size from 400 – 600 man days. The complexities involved in large implementations appeal to you. You will recognise and appreciate the benefits of working alongside and being supported by a team of like-minded and skilled developers and will want to push the boundaries of everyone’s knowledge.

If you read this and we’re talking about you, we want you on the team!

  • Ecommerce is your trade and Magento is your toolset of choice.
  • The words “site down” fill you with dread. Having worked consistently on sites with huge order volumes you recognise the financial implication of every minute of lost revenue in a multi-million (insert currency here) business. You’ll do everything you can to make sure the code isn’t at fault if outages occur.
  • Internationalisation and localisation are challenges you’ve already mastered.
  • You’re the “go to guy/gal” when everyone else hits a dead end in complex Magento debugging. You’ve yet to see something you can’t fix or identify a workaround for.
  • It pains you to see code which breaks best practice (particularly with regards to readability and performance).
  • You know the common pain points in Magento and how to work around them. You may even have developed some community modules to negate these.
  • Sometimes you realise that Magento is not the right tool for the job, you can articulate to technical and non-technical audiences why this is the case. Integrating to a third party or creating a bespoke solution is the right thing to do, obviously you can do this too.

We’re looking for the Ultimate Developer and we have the remuneration package to match it.

Ideally you’ll be based full time in our Manchester office, we work collaboratively and want everyone in the team to benefit from your experience. We can help with relocation if required. However, we realise that this is a very specific set of requirements, if we simply must have you on the team we will support remote working.
