||Competitive salary and benefits
The growing development team at Mountain Warehouse is split into 4 teams, each looking after a different set of applications and using a loose Kanban approach. The architecture is microservices with continuous deployment.
We are a collaborative team with a strong culture of code review, occasional usage of pair programming, lots of unit tests. We’re keen to write code following best practice and to continuously find ways that we can be even better. The work is a mixture of green-field and legacy work (much like any other mature organisation) mostly using C# and SQL Server - the microservices approach allows us to use other technologies as appropriate and we’ve got some MongoDB applications in development.

At Mountain Warehouse we have been developing the very best outdoor gear for all the family since 1997.
Unlike other outdoor retailers, we don’t carry lots of different brands. In fact, almost all the products we sell through our stores and website are exclusive to Mountain Warehouse - you won’t find them anywhere else.
Why do we do this? Well, by designing our own top quality products and having them made to our exacting standards, we can cut out the middleman. So that means you get the exact same quality, but at significantly lower prices than you’ll find at other shops.
We have well located and well stocked stores where you and your family can get straightforward advice from our knowledgeable, friendly staff. In most of our stores you can even bring your dog in too! Everything we do is focused on serving our growing group of customers who like what we have to offer: the best gear, the best service and the best prices.
We would love it if you joined them.
