Are you interested in music and audio technology?Are you an experienced Magento 2 developer keen to try something a little different?

If you’ve answered yes to both of the above, we’d love to hear from you!

The Digital Solutions team are looking for a new team member to accelerate our e-commerce project. We like to innovate at Focusrite and we’re keen to transform the customer purchase journey too.

What you’ll be doing:

You’ll be working in a small Agile team to deliver the core Magento shopping experience for our customers, and additionally looking to leverage the platform and integrations to add value for the whole business. We’re using a headless model so excellent knowledge of the backend API is essential.

The main focus will be to deliver the roadmap of product enhancements that our Product Owner has been developing and to advise, train/mentor the development team on best practice around Magento. We’re looking for someone who understands scalability and developing for the long-term. You have an open mind and love to learn. You will be solving problems and fulfilling user stories as a team.

An ideal candidate is likely to have:

  • 2+ years of commercial Magento 2 development experience with emphasis on the backend of the system and a good understanding of the API layer.
  • A solid understanding of Magento configuration and how to successfully migrate this from development to production.
  • Experience of Marketplace module integration as well as custom code development and integration with Enterprise systems.
  • An understanding of Magento performance and optimisation techniques.
  • Awareness of best practice in relation to Magento when developing custom code
  • Good grounding in HTML, CSS & JavaScript.
  • Excellent communication skills, both internally and client-facing and the ability to assist in gathering project requirements.
  • Experience with Git, a GitHub account would be great.
  • Some experience developing in an Agile environment.
  • Some additional experience outside of Magento with a PHP based system, e.g. Drupal or WordPress and/or a PHP framework, e.g. Symfony or Cake.

Passionate musicians, sound engineers and tinkerers will be right at home!

I don’t have all the experience you’ve asked for, should I still apply?

Our priority is to find the right fit for the team, and for Focusrite, and we’ll always do what we can to support individual development. In other words, if you don’t quite have all the experience listed above, we’d still be interested in hearing from you. Let us know what you’d bring to the role, and why you’d be a great fit for the team.
