At Matchesfashion we’re building our next generation e-commerce platform. We’re looking for talented engineers to help us create great customer experiences, build robust and scalable platforms, and champion our data-driven way of working. We’re looking for engineers that want to make an impact.

  • We ship to over 170 countries around the world
  • Our customers are fashion conscious luxury shoppers and include stylists, celebrities, royal families around the world
  • Millions of people visit the site each month
  • Products we sell range from less than £10 to over £40,000
  • The engineering team has doubled in the last two years and continues to grow in 2021
  • Our site typically takes between 1 and 5 million GBP in sales a day

Our company leadership behaviours want ALL staff to "act like owners" and make decisions at every level of the organisation. In engineering this means teams have a lot of autonomy around solutions and the responsibility that goes with that.

How we work

Our cross-functional engineering teams work with product managers and stakeholders to deliver high-value, strategic work. Regular lightweight agile ceremonies keep us aligned and provide opportunities to challenge our assumptions.


We know that writing and managing software is complex. We schedule at least 20% of our time to remove tech debt, and 10% for personal development. We have regular lunch ’n learn sessions to encourage knowledge-sharing and growth. We invest in our teams by providing access to professional training and certification, as well as our professional Udemy subscription.

The Road Ahead

Over the last year, we’ve done some amazing work. We’ve deployed a completely new presentation tier architecture, integrated with best-in-class services (Stripe/Contentful), we’ve even built Slackbots to automate tasks and improve the lives of our teams. Moving into 2021 and beyond, we’re investing even more in our architecture. This will drive innovation across the business. We’re reimagining the best customer experience throughout our website and mobile apps.

In short, we’re building for our long-term success.

Our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion is a priority for MATCHESFASHION – we delight customers around the world and so it’s important that our team represents our customers.

We want to attract the very best talent and create an inclusive environment that celebrates the diversity of our people and enables them to do the best work of their careers. We recognise the world is not a perfect place and that bias exists, which is why we take a focused approach in this area and are committed to ensuring that all our people processes are equitable.

We are an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status or disability status.
