Software Developer

Posted 26 January by Wiggle CRC Featured

WiggleCRC the world’s #1 online cycling and multisport retailer is currently seeking an enthusiastic and dynamic Software Developer to join our IT Solutions Department.

A career in Software Engineering at Wiggle involves much more than just writing code. You’ll be involved in the creation and deployment of features to help us continue our growth whilst working on internal software that keeps the business running.

We’re always improving our customer facing website, releasing every fortnight and prioritizing features directly with the business with a value/effort focus. Using a number of javascript frameworks, a variety of UIs, internal and external exist on JQuery, Angular and Knockout. Built around a SQL server backend, we use a variety of DB access techniques depending on the requirement. You’ll be supporting SPs, nHibernate stacks and writing green field code using Dapper or another lightweight ORM. Injection is covered by Spring.net, being refactored to Autofac.

Why do this job?

  • You’ll be challenged daily to find answers to problems using initiative and innovation.
  • We have a significant application footprint meaning that tasks are rarely repetitive.
  • E-Commerce is a competitive environment, and you’ll be comfortable in a variety of project situations, from well-defined requirements to nebulous goals with freedom to experiment.
  • Most happy in an agile environment you want to increase the value our ceremonies provide and take opportunities to make suggestions to improve our techniques, processes and tools in and out of regular retrospectives.
  • You’ll be analytical, a good communicator, both technical and non-technical, and happy explaining ideas and architectures on a whiteboard.
  • You’ll be confident in your code going live to millions of people because it was written with SOLID principles in mind, you’ve unit tested it, it’s been reviewed, QA’d and UATed and you know it’s efficient from your profiler run results.
  • You enjoy the opportunity to improve using online resources including a PluralSight subscription and innovating genuine value in 10% time along with participating in Friday Fun knowledge sessions where engineers showcase new technologies and techniques to their peers in informal presentations.
