A Manchester based retail technology specialist is looking for an Angular Developer to join their team. Working with an impressive portfolio of big-name brands, they have tracked success from the outset and are continuing to grow. Their technology helps to enhance shopping experiences within clothing retail and transform the way customer's buy products, making it both easier and more inspiring for the shopper's needs.
What will I be doing and who will I be working with?
They've recently launched an exciting project in a flagship store that involves incorporating RFID technology to connect the dots between the customer experiences on physical and digital level.
You will be working in a team of around 20 people and their roles vary between Developers, Project Managers, and the tech management team.
Who am I?
The company are looking for someone who likes working with Angular6+ and TypeScript, and it would be great if you have worked with React, Flutter and AWS.
You don't need any previous retail sector experience but an example of how you can show you have a keen interest in developing the future of retail technology would be great.
As a member of the development team, you will be tasked with maintaining, enhancing, and improving the frontend infrastructure and frameworks, which are used by several digital client experiences and sales channels.
In terms of culture, the team are very open-minded and enthusiastic about tech. They majorly encourage Learning and Development and most of the team have been there for quite a few years and love it. If you're looking for a smaller team where you can settle in and contribute your unique ideas, you will be welcomed with open arms!
What are the benefits and where will I be based?
This is probably worth knowing before applying. They have a budget of up to £40,000 for the role but there is wiggle room for the perfect candidate.
They are based close to Manchester City Centre, with free parking and a tram stop nearby, and would like you to come into the office a few times a week. There are flexible working hours if you feel like having breakfast at home or need to leave early but twice a week on-site would be the minimum requirement.
The perks include a free lunch bought by the company for the whole team and this is an opportunity to get everyone together in a social environment and say a small thank you. They also organise exciting team-building events with food and drinks every quarterly - the last couple of team-building events have been axe throwing and go-karting, and they switch it up so that the team can always look forward to something new.

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.
Software Engineer – Edinburgh
She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.
QA Engineer – Glasgow
I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.
Software Developer – Glasgow
She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.
Software Engineer – Manchester
Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.
Software Developer – Lincoln
I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.
Transformation Consultant – Leeds
He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.
Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow
It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal
Solutions Architect – Glasgow
A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.
Software Engineer - Edinburgh
He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.
Technical Author – Edinburgh
Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties
Software Developer – Glasgow
I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!
Software Developer – Northampton
Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.
MI Analyst – Bolton
He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.
Data Scientist – Manchester
THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.
Test Analyst – Aberdeen
