Working at Dressipi

Dressipi is passionate about leading the way in '1-to-1 personalisation'. Since our launch in 2011, over 5 million shoppers and many leading retailers use our personalisation technology to help customers find the right products that they will love and keep.

Software Engineer

Software Engineer

We're seeking an engineer to join our smallish team building web applications that provide highly personalised product recommendations. You'll be working on projects for some of the most successful high street retailers including Topshop, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, the Shop Direct Group – including a 'retail first' project that is taking personalisation offline into stores. The role is broad, from our outfit creation algorithms to designing multi-region deployment strategies.

Where You Can Make An Impact

You'll chiefly be working on the apis and backend technology that support these customer facing applications. You'll also be supporting the front end developers who consume these apis – experience with front-end technologies such as JavaScript/Backbone/React/React-Native is a bonus.

You'll be involved from the earliest stage of a feature: discussing the underlying problem or consumer need with our stylists or product owners before designing a solution and implementing it.

The majority of our work takes place on a set of rails apps (currently all on rails 4.2 & ruby 2.2), with data stored in Elasticsearch, MySQL and MongoDB and hosted on AWS, but we are open to expanding our toolchain when needed

You Will Have

  1. An interest in solving hard and diverse problems
  2. The will and ability to pick up new technologies as required
  3. Interest in building web applications capable of servicing millions of users
  4. Good working knowledge of at least some of the technologies we use

We're seeking a mid to senior level full stack developer to join our small, agile and highly motivated team building web applications and mobile apps that provide highly personalised product recommendations. You'll be working on projects for some of the most successful high street retailers including Topshop, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, and the Shop Direct Group — including a 'retail first' project that is taking personalisation offline into stores.
