Magento developers - UK

We are currently hiring for Front End, Back End and Full Stack Magento Developers within the UK!

You are a developer in our Magento delivery team focusing on delivering frontend Magento functionality.
Heres what your week may look like: You start your day in a team Stand Up discussing progress you made yesterday, listening to your team members describe their current issues and dropping some knowledge bombs on how you solved this last time.

You're working from home, so you pay the pet tax and encourage your four-legged-friend to wave to the camera before logging off.
First up youve got a pair-programming session with a Junior Developer in your team to help them through a design implementation that theyve been working on. Theyve been steadily improving under your experienced wing and are turning into a really productive team member.

After lunch you'll set your Slack status and turn on Do Not Disturb for a couple of hours while you debug a weird issue with a customers site. Theres been a change to the estimated delivery day logic recently to support new shipping options, and it's caused some display issues in certain browsers. You update the styles to cover this unexpected scenario and tell the Project Manager the good news! You push your feature branch to Bitbucket and watch Bitbucket Pipelines build your code, running automated tests to prove your new code passes the tests.

Your JIRA issue has automatically transitioned to In Code Review and you open your pull request, studying your diff carefully before assigning it to your team mate for a sanity check.

Tomorrow (assuming all is well!) you'll merge your pull request into a release branch and let Pipelines deploy it to Staging where it will be regression tested by the QA Team and their bank of automated tests. It should be out to Production by the end of the week, providing we can get through the testing and get client sign off by 2pm on Thursday.

If you read this and it sounds like your ideal job we want you on the team!
