Head office - London, United Kingdom

This vacancy is now closed



At Mountain Warehouse we understand that IT is core to our success as a business and so we invest heavily in our in-house team. The development department is divided into product-based teams, all using variants on Kanban for project prioritisation and a focus on continuous delivery, mostly with usage of microservices.

We are looking for a technically strong and organised Team Lead / Lead Developer for the team responsible for systems related to our stores. These systems include 800+ tills and 500+ Android handā€held devices used by around 4000 retail staff across 9 time zones, all implemented using a microservices based architecture.

We believe that a Lead Developer should know their team’s systems inside-out and should become a subject matter expert in the products and areas that the team is responsible for. You should have an opinion, while recognizing that your opinion is not the only one in the room!
