Jobs at NET-A-PORTER

 

About the graduate scheme
Under the guidance of world-class developers, over an 18-month rotation, candidates have the opportunity to learn and have exposure to a range of coding languages including Java, Perl, Scala and JavaScript. The business model means that those grads on the scheme work alongside business teams such as editorial, styling, mobile and customer service so they quickly see the value their work brings to the company. This is far removed from the corporate, technical atmospheres of many STEM-based grad schemes.  
 
The NET-A-PORTER GROUP looks for those with a real passion for technology, who love to understand what make things work and ask "why?” Applicants need to embody the following:
 
·        Entrepreneurship

·        Creative thinking

·        Challenging the norm

·        Enthusiasm for leading edge technology


Despite the size of the company there’s a family atmosphere and a start-up mentality. People are THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP’S key asset and they’re looking for people who have some practical experience of coding, a real passion for technology, a curiosity for understanding how and why things work and a desire to solve problems.
 
Applications for the scheme close on the 31st January 2014, if you’d like to find out more please visit: http://www.net-a-porter.com/careers

About THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP

If you are familiar with THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP, you probably associate it with fashion but there’s a lot more than meets the eye going on behind the scenes. Everything is developed in house, allowing the group to lead the way in retail. They built the first ever transactional fashion iPhone app and their warehouses have robots all linked to a centrally developed system!
 
The group is bigger than you might think, with over 2,500 employees working in London, Hong Kong and New York, almost 300 of which make up the fast growing London-based IT and Technology team. Moreover, their websites receive over 160 million hits daily; that’s over 2 million customers shopping with THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP every day.
