Vacancy details

Head office - London, United Kingdom
Description

Overview

The growing development team at Mountain Warehouse is split into small teams, each looking after a different set of applications and using a Kanban approach to prioritisation.

We are a collaborative team with a strong culture of code review, occasional usage of pair programming, lots of unit tests. We’re keen to write code following best practice and to continuously find ways that we can be even better. The work is a mixture of green-field and legacy work (much like any other mature organisation) mostly using C#, SQL Server & React – however, the microservices approach allows us to alter the technology as appropriate.

We are looking for developers to join customer-facing and internal tooling teams.

Location

Like most companies we shifted to working-from-home pattern during the UK lockdown. As a department, this has worked out fine for us and while we have had use of the office for a few months, most of the department has opted to remain at home. This means that when this is all over we will have a blended team that has both remote and in-office members. We’re committed to making this work and ensuring that remote workers are first-class citizens in the department.
