We are looking for someone entrepreneurial, ambitious and humble. Our Technology Department has grown from 5 to over 70 team members in just a few years, and we need your help to take the company onwards and upwards.

The customer app (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/matchesfashion.com-modern/id966121224?mt=8), written in Swift, is a crucial part of our business, and there is a lot of love that goes into it.
We are currently in the process of redesigning it to match the latest and greatest in terms of application architecture, coding standards, and design, so it is a great time to join. You will have a significant impact on the direction we head in.
We offer fortnightly tech talks and 10% time that allows you to work on your own projects or a project that interests you and can help contribute to the growth of matchesfashion.com
