Working remotely but based in United Kingdom within 2 hour travel of London
A great opportunity to become part of a ground-breaking team that is looking to shake up how consumer lifestyle technology products are sold.
Launching in 2021 Situ Live has ambitions to become a first-choice destination to discover and choose the latest and best innovation products designed to make life better.
We will be showcasing the ultra-cool new brands shoppers don't know alongside the big brands they do. A blend of online and physical retailing: Our live experiential showroom in Westfield London brings some of the magic of theatre to how we shop for lifestyle technology products.
Our presenters bring products to life with live storytelling and live streamed content whilst our knowledgeable advisors help shoppers understand the products better and guide them to the best places to buy online.
Our digital platform manages and presents product information across our catalogue of entertainment, home, work, communications, wellness, sport, travel and more. Our easy-to-use digital shopping content and tools take the stress out of choosing what’s right for shoppers. We then connect shoppers to their favourite places they can buy the product.
We are looking for experienced Senior C# .Net developers to join our Engineering and Data team. You will be responsible for developing our data driven product experience platform which manages our brand partner’s product placement, information delivery and the capture of shopper behavioural data capture across our venue and digital estate.
As we move beyond building the core platform you will be involved in creating systems to drive new capability and new revenue opportunities with data and cognitive services at its core. As well as shaping and creating the foundations for insight-driven, market-leading digital products, you’ll play an influential role in growing the team and coaching junior team members.
As a new and agile team, we have the benefit of always using the latest technologies and frameworks. Our tech stack is predominantly Azure based and we follow a MACH (microservices, API-first, cloud-native, headless) approach to our product development.
You must be comfortable talking about system design and architecture and will know how to get the best out of using Agile methodologies and following test driven development principles (TDD).
You will be obsessed with pristine simplified code, and always looking for new techniques, frameworks and technologies that improve efficiency, security and performance. In particular we are looking for people with a keen interest in data and machine learning to help champion a data culture across the business by combining their technical ability with a data-focused approach.
As a proactive, self-motivated, self-aware member of the team you will be able to work alone as well as develop relationships in a fast-paced environment.
The team all work from home but there is a requirement to commute to occasional events with the technology, product or the Situ Live full team – these will involve travelling to Manchester, London and Reading.
