Jobs dev team

Senior E-Commerce Developer

We are known for boutique e-commerce.

We specialise in design & build of high performing platforms & stores. We produce work that redefines category excellence and accelerates platform profitability. We aspire to make technically challenging and creatively testing work adapting to the needs and scale of any project.

Ecommerce and CMS platforms

Our development projects span best in class customised E-Commerce & CMS platforms. We work with various PHP frameworks - most commonly CraftCMS, Craft Commerce & Laravel as well as Shopify Plus, Craft Commerce & Magento.

We’re regularly working with APIs to push and pull data from sources ranging from Inventory Management and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM), financial data feeds, and so much more. Our back-end development work is as much about technical architecture planning and clear multi-party communication, as it is about the accuracy of the code, and robust testing.

Without exception, project technical requirements are scoped out and budgeted against, and we are deliberate in never committing to work we are not confident we can deliver.
