Our Future of Remote Working:
Here at Moonpig our people come first. As we grow and the world around us changes, we understand that we’ll need to adapt, which means that our ways of working will always remain dynamic. So while we plan to go back to the office in September, we won’t be returning the same way that we left back in March 2020. We’ve mastered the art of remote onboarding and are excited to introduce bespoke remote working options for all employees. And yes that’s exactly what it sounds like – if you want to work from home for 1-4 days a week or prefer a fully remote role, we’ll support what works best for you.

Work with us
Moonpig Group achieved ‘Unicorn’ status in one of the biggest tech IPOs of 2021, making the FTSE 250 index of leading companies listed on the London Stock Exchange with a market cap of £1.5 billion. We’re now growing the team to work towards an even more ambitious goal of reaching 25 million customers. 
 
To help get us there, we’ll be developing some cool tech innovations. Two projects we’ll bring to life this year include augmented reality/video cards and pre-personalisation; the latter aiming to provide a richer browsing experience for our customers via the automatic translation of customer data into personalised cards and gifts across multiple galleries. 
 
But the magic does not stop there. Our architecture is built for scale and flexibility which will allow us to quickly innovate and launch new propositions -- coupling that with the wealth of data we have on our customers, the sky's the limit in the world of experimenting with cutting edge ideas.
 
Moonpig is a hidden gem in terms of our culture. Check out our 4.7 rating on Glassdoor as well as info about our tech culture and benefits for a view on how great it is to work here!

We are currently looking to hire an Engineer on our Studio team. The Studio team’s mission is to empower our designers to grow Moonpig’s card and gift catalog and give our customers the best gift personalisation experience available on the market.

What you'll be doing:

    • Join a cross-functional team of software engineers, product and design experts to build and support a suite of tools that will enable our design teams to create innovative personalised gifting experiences for our customers.
    • Work in a serverless-first environment with a strong focus on asynchronous messaging and availability at scale.
    • Take ownership of your code, the infrastructure it sits on, the CI/CD pipelines that test and deploy it, and the production systems that monitor it.
    • Enjoy excellent career development opportunities backed by individual objectives and our engineering growth framework.
    • Contribute to our team’s technical direction and strategy.

You'll be a good addition to the Studio team if :

    • You have experience building cloud/serverless applications, either with AWS or a similar cloud suite.
    • You have experience working with Node.js and TypeScript, but are also happy to work across other languages and ecosystems.
    • You enjoy being part of a full-stack, cross-functional team, working closely with people of different specialisms within your team and across the business.
    • You prefer a collaborative environment, sharing knowledge through collaboration, pair programming and constructive code review.
    • You are willing to challenge your own ideas; to try, fail, learn and repeat - and you encourage others to do the same.

Our Tech Environment

    • AWS, Serverless, Terraform, Node.js, TypeScript, C#, .NET Core, GraphQL, React.
    • GitHub for SCM, CI/CD through GitLab pipelines.
    • Robust and performant cloud/serverless applications, with a focus on user experience and business growth.
    • Full-stack, cross-functional teams owning the whole software development lifecycle from discovery to delivery.
    • We don’t expect you to have experience with all of the technologies above. Some of our product teams use .Net Core and others use Node.js/Typescript, so if you have experience in either, along with cloud/serverless experience, please apply!

Our Expectations of you:

    • Good engineering comes first: First and foremost, we are always striving for good engineering and this is so much more than just writing good, clean code. It’s a way of thinking about your code, domain, peers, supporting processes and the entire ecosystem in which you operate. You should be learning how this all fits together and focusing on your contribution towards it.

    • Focus on delivery: Delivery is fundamental to great engineering, it’s why we write software after all. You will build up a solid understanding of what good delivery looks like, how to work in high performing teams, what makes good team dynamics and how the collective process contributes towards fast, incremental delivery.

    • Learn and grow: You will be continuously growing your engineering skills and ensuring you are surrounding yourself with people that can help you do this. Understand the core differences between coding, craft and architecture and how they are applied at scale. You are evolving to a world in which you are responsible for part of the technical estate, so make sure you are growing to take on this challenge with confidence.
