About the job
Bravissimo is the award-winning retailer for women with bigger boobs. Led by our strong values, with a relaxed workplace, fantastic town centre location, regular social and charity events, staff discounts and perks and the most incredibly friendly people, it’s no surprise we’ve been in the Sunday Times list of the Top 100 Best Companies to work for each year for the last five years!
As a Web Developer, you will be part of our small in-house development team, helping us continuously improve our high-traffic desktop and mobile websites and related systems.
The work is both technical and creative in nature, requiring a blend of backend and frontend skills. Whilst development is based on the .NET stack, we are open-minded and forward-thinking, not limiting ourselves to Microsoft technologies – alongside .NET 4.0, ASP.NET (combination of MVC and WebForms) and SQL Server 2008, you can expect to work with HTML5, jQuery, Knockout, Backbone, Git, StructureMap, Lucene, TeamCity and any other tool we feel is the best for the job.
With this being an e-commerce operation, you can also expect to be involved in areas such as credit card processing, 3D-secure, SEO, analytics and social networking, sometimes liaising with external agencies. Because we trade around the clock, you will also be required to provide ad-hoc out of hours support on occasion.
Working at Bravissimo is fun and challenging, with plenty of projects in the pipeline we want you to help us with, whilst developing your career in an organisation where your work has a direct impact on millions of people.
You will have a logical mind and good attention to detail, able to craft a polished UI from the design concepts provided. Whilst you won't necessarily be a designer, ideally you will have a creative spark, happy to dive into Photoshop when necessary, and you'll care about every single pixel.
As a good communicator, you'll be keen to get involved in discussions and arguments and express your own views. Whenever you see room for improvement you won't be afraid to speak up, and you'll readily ask questions or hit Google/StackOverflow if you're not sure about something.
Bravissimo is a dynamic, entrepreneurial company which, since its launch in 1995, has grown consistently year on year. We provide products for women with bigger boobs, and a service to inspire them to celebrate their curves and feel good about themselves. As a multi-channel retailer, we sell our products via the web, mail order and our 23 shops. We stock a wide range of lingerie and swimwear and have our own range of nightwear. We also have a clothing range, Pepperberry.
We have ambitious plans for the future and need flexible, dynamic people to support and drive our growth.
