Mountain Warehouse is a profitable, privately-owned and growing business. The development department is focussed on getting things done rather than predicting when things will get done. What does this mean? It means that:
The department at Mountain Warehouse is split across 5 team – 1 UX team and 4 backend teams. One of these teams is in Warsaw and a placement month could be arranged if desired. We work to improve the eCommerce offering internationally, to improve our tools & processes for buying, merchandising, retail operations, logistics, customer service and Finance!
At Mountain Warehouse we believe that developers should be connected to the things that they build – as such, developers get to spend time with the business owners on a regular basis and specifications are built iteratively based upon feedback. We take the time to get things right rather than rushing on to the next thing. All code is peer reviewed and TDD is promoted as much as possible.

Office & Culture
Our IT department is in a modern office building over the road from the rest of the company, it’s a stone’s throw from Victoria which gives you easy transport links to Clapham High St, Soho, Camden, Brixton, Shoreditch, Notting Hill, etc. All the team is constantly learning and we have a dedicated day every month for training – we also have regular lunch’n’learn events and twice-yearly hack events ( https://bit.ly/2NJ6yUQ ). We’re a sociable team, most of us lunch together and you can guarantee to find some of us in the pub every Friday.
