YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP

Technology is at the heart of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and is the driving force behind its success. Our in-house technology team allows The Group to give customers and brand partners the best possible experience across content and commerce, and to continually innovate and lead the online luxury industry.

Our tech team comprises world-class developers and testers who build and maintain our fast, responsive and reliable websites, and we are looking for high-calibre, passionate individuals to join them.

Under the guidance of our brilliant team, you will complete two six month rotations in different teams giving you the opportunity to learn about various technologies across the stack including Java, Scala, IBM Watson, JavaScript and iOS development.

On top of your team giving you on-the-job training, you’ll have a mentor from the technology team and a buddy from the previous grad programme to help guide you and find your feet.  You’ll receive constant feedback throughout your career at YNAP, not just on the programme, to help you improve and excel.

This is a unique opportunity to gain experience as a Software Engineer by working in collaborative, agile teams.  You’ll come into our business on a permanent basis and be part of the regular team, get to work on real business problems and really add value!

Additionally, there will be opportunities to work on outside projects and launches, and regular hack days will give you the chance to get those creative juices flowing.  The extra-curricular aspects of working in our brand new amazing offices will keep you occupied; gaming clubs, sports teams, manicures and massages are all part of the package. You will receive a competitive salary and employee package including healthcare, pension and generous staff discount.

Skills and Experience

  • A Bachelors degree – ideally, but not limited to, a STEM related discipline
  • Genuine passion for Technology
  • Creative problem solver with the ability to look at everyday problems differently and think on your feet
  • Results focussed with the ability to deliver individually and within a teamInitiative and drive to self-learn and self-improve
  • Strong communication skills

You have a real passion for technology, you love to understand what make things work and ask “why?” – You may sometimes break things but that’s OK when combined with a desire to find a solution!  You enjoy problem solving, getting stuff done and you love it when a plan comes together.

To be suitable for this role, you’ve probably written some code, but this is not essential; you don’t need to be an expert but you’re keen to find out and learn a lot more. 

You embody creative thinking, challenging the norm and have an enthusiasm for technology.

If that sounds like you, then we’d love to chat with you about a career as a Technology Graduate at YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP.

If you are successful with your application, you can expect a whirlwind 12 months with training and real responsibility and you’ll be contributing to our live sites from the get go.
