The growing development team at Mountain Warehouse is split into 4 teams, each looking after a different set of applications and using a loose Kanban approach. The architecture is microservices with continuous deployment.
We are a collaborative team with a strong culture of code review, occasional usage of pair programming, lots of unit tests. We’re keen to write code following best practice and to continuously find ways that we can be even better. The work is a mixture of green-field and legacy work (much like any other mature organisation) mostly using C# and SQL Server – the microservices approach allows us to use other technologies as appropriate and we’ve got some MongoDB applications in development.
We are looking for developers to join any of our 3 UK teams, the roles are primarily “back-end” but there is some user interface work to be done for those with an interest in it.
Our team has recently started publishing a blog at: https://mountainwarehousetech.wordpress.com/
This is a selection of what we’re using – let us know what you have experience of, we can train in the rest.
We have regular learning days, lunch’n’learns, two hack events a year and a budget for training courses or conferences. The department is light on meetings and big on doing – we give you the time to complete your work to a high standard. As a privately-owned company we tend to be fast-moving, and as we’re profitable and growing we tend to be able to afford the tools and hardware we need.The IT department is over the road from the rest of head office. We have a large, modern open-space environment that’s been recently refurbished.It’s a sociable environment - the current team tend to go for lunch most days, the local pub is occupied by the company most Fridays, there are two big parties a year, etc.
