  • WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

    ROLE OVERVIEW

     

    AllSaints are looking for a talented & passionate front-end developer to join our fast-paced and innovative engineering team.

     

    We're looking to hire experienced developers who are pragmatic but obsessed with reaching for the best with key experience in building RESTful API based platforms.

     

    We believe in building fast, highly usable systems using agile methodologies to deliver real business value whilst taking the opportunity to innovate and build a platform that we're proud of. As a member of our team you have a real voice in the future of AllSaints technical strategy whilst being a member of a fun and engaging team. We're driven to rethink and disrupt the norm using the best tools and programming languages for the role.

     

    This is a huge opportunity to take a step forward in your career, learn new technologies and programming languages whilst having a lot of fun and building something you are proud of. At AllSaints we believe in training and promoting from within, so there are always great opportunities to progress in your career but also have the opportunity to attend technical conferences to further expand your knowledge, awareness and horizons.

     

    As a part of the team that develops the platform, we have full control over our global infrastructure, whilst working closely with content and marketing teams to deliver world class tools that support their workflow. At AllSaints we are obsessed with security and scalability, whilst tackling both complex and challenging technical objectives. You'll have the opportunity to learn and grow throughout your time with AllSaints.

     

    As a company that owns their entire technology stack, end-to-end, we have complete control over the future architecture and are able to optimise the system to our specific needs. If something doesn't work, we can change it, when we want to and exactly how we want to.

     

     

    Key Responsibilities

     

    Leadership

    As an experienced developer, you'll be expected to lead those around you by example. We believe in positivity and a can-do attitude. It is critical to AllSaints and your success that you believe in innovation, finding new ways of doing things quicker, and a life long learner who loves to share knowledge and information.

     

    Security

    Security today is paramount to business continuity. On a daily basis you will need to think about your code security and how that impacts on the security of the platform. All code you push for release will be reviewed and scanned for security vulnerabilities.

     

    You will be required to learn about all vulnerabilities and be able to demonstrate your ability to exploit and protect from those vulnerabilities.

     

    Innovation

    The technologies of today will not be the technologies of tomorrow and so without continual investment in learning and finding new ways of solving problems, we'll fall behind. Its imperative that you don't become attached to "the way I do things". We believe in continual iteration and growth through communication and leadership with your peers.

     

    Communication

    We believe in pro-active communication, without it we don't learn, grow or understand the big picture. Every day you'll have the opportunity to talk to the team via daily stand-ups but also work cross-functionally with the wider business to ensure business success.

     

    On a daily basis you'll be assigned as a reviewer on pull requests, ensuring the code complies with PSR1/2 coding standards, security policy whilst considering performance and complexity.

     

    Productivity and Quality

    All work that you complete will go through review. Your performance will be measured upon the quality of your pull request through conformance with company and technical policies and standards. If you commit code, you put your name on it and you'll be measured against that. Conversely, you will also be measured against productivity. Great code is excellent, but if it takes you too long to produce that code, that it also counter productive.

    WHAT SKILLS DO I NEED FOR THE ROLE?

    Position requirements are as follows

     

    • Proven commercial experience as a front-end developer.
    • Strong knowledge of React, Redux and Typescript.

    • Experience with cloud hosting providers.
    • Working knowledge of Linux. Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS very desirable.
    • Used to working with dependency/package management tools such as Composer and Bower.

     

    Soft skills

    • Ability to prioritise.
    • Thrive in a fast paced environment.
    • Able to mentor less experienced developers with patience.

    A BIT ABOUT ALLSAINTS AND THE TEAM

    The AllSaints Story

     

    The British fashion label AllSaints was founded in London in 1994, with the aim of creating fresh, innovative design, encompassing an ideology of reinventing the traditional standard. After the success of their menswear collection, the brand moved into womenswear; still created with the same design-led commitment to high-quality yet attitudinal clothing.

    The brand’s metropolitan location remains a key influence, proving to be an ever-evolving, creatively inspiring hub.  In 2005, AllSaints’ head offices were relocated to the Spitalfields neighbourhood of London, an area famed for its historic links to the fashion industry, and this artistically dynamic community is still home to the AllSaints HQ today.

    As the brand grows, so does its digital and online presence. AllSaints increasingly operates as a digital brand, creating music, film and art content available to view online at www.allsaints.com.  In 2013 the brand launched its own film production company, AllSaints Film. A further extension of their contribution to visual culture; AllSaints’ creative projects are a testament to their brand values of creative disruption, innovation, independence and individuality.
