Full Stack Developer (Checkout Team)


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#, TypeScript, SQL Server & React – however, the microservices approach allows us to alter the technology as appropriate.

We are looking for a developer to join the team responsible for our website checkout systems, which need to be highly available, reliable, accurate and customer focussed and which we have built from the ground up in the last two years.
