LUSH Global Digital Ltd

Remote UK 

Whoever you are, whatever you do, all are welcome, always. Lush is a dynamic and fast-moving business that really doesn’t have the time for hang-ups and stereotypes of gender, race, religion, appearance or ability. It’s what you do that counts and we will take you whichever way you come.

We’re leading the digital strategy and development for Lush globally, across many digital properties ranging from apps to websites. We’re a fast-paced, dynamic team that are comfortable with rapid change and are happy talking about and demonstrating our work to the wider business and stakeholders.


What you’ll do:
On a day to day basis, you'll be working closely with the rest of the digital team to manage brand engagement and user experience initiatives. Developing and evolving our in-house e-commerce and content management platform. 

  • Writing clean, secure and commented code to an exceptionally high standard.
  • Refactoring, reviewing and maintaining existing enterprise application code bases to ensure scalability, performance and security are taken into consideration.
  • Actively researching and implementing innovative web techniques and features to enhance the development process.
  • Developing and deploying new features to facilitate related procedures and tools.
  • Liaising with other departments within the business to gain and review internal and external feedback on the website and digital development projects.

Who you are:

  • At least 2 years experience with PHP development.
  • A core understanding of web technologies - HTML, JS, CSS is essential.
  • A working knowledge of MySQL and relational databases in general is essential.
  • Working knowledge of version control systems, preferably git, is essential.
  • Experienced in Symfony and Python
  • Experience with any other frameworks (Laravel, Silex, Zend) would be great
  • Any additional full stack skills - SASS, task runners (grunt/gulp), JS frameworks (angular, vue, react) would be nice but not essential.
  • Knowledge of development environments like Vagrant and Docker would also be helpful.

We want to see developers who are well versed in using tools/technologies such as:

  • PHP
  • jQuery
  • SQL
  • Symfony
  • Python

As we pride ourselves on internal development, priority will be given to candidates who have an in-depth knowledge of Lush coupled with relevant experience and qualifications.
