.NET Developer

Who are we looking for?

This is an exciting opportunity for you to join a growing team of developers working on Moonpig’s ambitious development roadmap. You will be involved in maintaining and improving the existing codebase, as well as working within an Agile team to deliver new features and products.

Moonpig is looking for a versatile, cross-functional mid level back-end developer with deep knowledge of the Microsoft technology stack, and object-oriented programming skills.

An ability to produce easily adaptable and testable software which delivers real business value for the product owner and/or customer is a key requirement for this role. You should be adept at capturing requirements through collaboration, and working within a tightly co-ordinated team committed to delivering quality software iteratively.

The role requires solid C#/.Net programming experience, developing with highly transactional web solutions. We look for a sound knowledge of unit testing and test driven development (TDD).

Moonpig prides itself on its innovation, and we like to hire engineers who can actively contribute to the evolution of the web and mobile products. The work is not all green field, but we expect and encourage a real passion for breaking new ground, and, though the company may have grown out of its start-up phase, it still cherishes an entrepreneurial spirit. Influencing product development through strong technical ideas and working collaboratively with product owners should be considered a key part of this role.

Who are we?

The purpose of our great family of brands is to magic our customers’ photos, words and feelings into precious objects that make them smile, laugh and, sometimes, cry.
