.Net Web Developer (eCommerce) / Top 100 Internet Retailer


GUITARGUITAR is a company with a passion for making people's lives better through music. As the UK’s largest guitar retailer, and a Top 100 UK Internet Retailer, we want to recruit an experienced and qualified .NET Web Developer to expand our technology division. This is the ideal role for an enthusiastic person, with a mixture of web development and programming skills, to play a key role in our award-winning business.

Who we are:

Our recent transition into Employee Ownership (EOT) means we put our employees “centre stage” and are the country’s first (and only) musical instrument retailer to do so.

At guitarguitar we strive to provide the best possible experiences for our customers (both in-store and online) and we take a great deal of satisfaction from being a part of the musical journeys our customers embark upon. At the heart of our family is a group of people who go the extra mile for each other and our customers. We are not a faceless warehouse. We are an enthusiastic community who are always evolving, revising, learning and moving forward to provide our customers with the best possible multi-channel retail experience.

A key part of that community is our integrated technology team who utilise modern technologies to drive the business forward whilst advancing the platforms that make it all possible. Our technology stack is always evolving and we deploy new features regularly using our continuous integration systems. We champion an agile approach, developing in small batches to iteratively improve our platforms whilst driving through our roadmap of initiatives. We utilise automated testing to improve velocity whilst also often developing together in pairs to share knowledge between developers….ultimately...everyone contributes and you could say, we are pretty techy to the core.
