Due to market demand, our client is on the lookout for a lead Magento developer to join their eCommerce team. This is an excellent opportunity for a full-stack developer with experience of working in a lead role, or for a senior developer looking to take the next step in their career.

It's a rare opportunity to join the business and instantly 'own' the technical delivery of projects. You will have the say in how things should be delivered, and the trust will be put in you that those technical solutions are the best way forward for both.

  • Experience of working with Magento Cloud 
  • A confident and proactive self-starter 
  • Someone that has no problem speaking directly to clients 
  • Understanding problems, requirements and turning those into solutio
  • Experience of extending the Magento Bulk API framework and/or creating custom API endpoints would be highly advantageous 
  • Ability to manage your own workload and prioritise work based on team objectives 
  • Experience of working with offshore development teams in different time zone
  • Sound understanding of delivery methodologies such as Agile and Waterfall

Technical Skills & Experience

  • HTML 5, XHTML, JavaScript, jQuery, Foundation, Bootstrap 
  • Github, Gitlab 
  • Experience with SVN and confident using Git for version control 
  • Experience working with CMS packages
