Posted: Jul 19, 2020

Does the opportunity of being the first in-house developers in a hugely successful e-commerce business excite you? Are you a Shopify developer, or a Magento Dev wanting to learn Shopify?

If this sounds like you, come and join our team at Missoma!

Rapid growth in revenue and the desire for improved productivity and communication, has led us to start transitioning away from using our third-party London development agency and build our first in-house, cross-functional agile team which in turn will help drive traffic – and ultimately revenue – through our web presence.

Once hired, the cross-functional agile team will consist of a UX Designer, Product Owner, Delivery Manager, Senior Front-End Developer, and Front-End Shopify Developer all of whom will report into our CTO.

Key to the success of this team will be this Senior Front-End Developer hire which will expand and improve our e-commerce platform. There is considerable work to be done building new features, functionality and pages using Shopify, Liquid, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS which will be integrated into MS Azure Service Bus and Event Hubs built in C#, our warehouse management system Peoplevox and MS Dynamics which we use as our ERP finance system.

Following Induction, upcoming projects include a loyalty scheme, new product pages, new international websites for Germany and China, video content, additional payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Amazon Pay. This is just the beginning, there is plenty of work to get stuck into!

What we need from you

First and foremost, you must be a Senior Front-End Developer ideally with experience of using the e-commerce platforms Shopify or Magento. We will want to hear about the websites you have worked on with this tech stack and the features and functionality you have specifically built.

Following on from this, it is key that you would have integrated Shopify or Magento into multiple different platforms. We will be keen to hear about what platforms you have integrated with and what challenges you have faced with these integrations.

Naturally, as a Senior Front-End Developer we would expect you to have strong experience in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. We would expect you to be completely up to speed with the latest developments and best practices and be able to discuss their application in past projects.

As you will form part of our first-ever in-house agile development team. It is key you can communicate clearly and collaborate with others, including parties outside your core team such as the e-commerce team and senior business stakeholders.
