Job Info:

Category: Software Engineering
Company Description: Leading Global E-commerce Platform
Salary: Highly Competitive, Depending on Experience
Position Type: Permanent
Job Number: 9285

Job Description:

Our Client's engineering teams are developing cutting edge e-commerce experiences for the world's most recognizable fashion brands. The Front End Engineer will work on a fairly small, cross-functional team that sits together, works as a fairly autonomous unit, and owns the accountability for delivering value. Projects are run in an agile fashion and while we do practice pairing, it's not dogmatic. There are times when full-on pairing makes sense, and times when it doesn't make sense at all, but we leave that up to the developers to decide. We've done a lot of work around automating builds and deployments, and techniques such as feature toggles and dark launches, so that we are not only able to release code frequently, but when we do, it's a low-ceremony event.
