    O V E R V I E W

    We are notonthehighstreet.

    We’re home to 5,000 phenomenal small creative businesses that we are proud to call our Partners. But, now more than ever, this community needs our support. So we’re doing all we can to shine a light on these dynamic entrepreneurs, waving the flag for small businesses and generally championing their socks off.

    On top of our brilliant Partners, products and customers (not to mention our incredible team who have been busy beavering away from home since March), the last 12 months has seen great progress with our tech platform and customer experience. We are now looking to build on this momentum to drive our business to the next level. And that’s where you come in.


    V A L U E S

    We are Team NOTHS

    We value, respect and listen to each other’s opinions. We work collaboratively, encouraging feedback and support along the way.

    We are brave

    We dream big, strive for success, and are brave in our decisions. We lead the way by pushing boundaries — not afraid to speak up and challenge the way things are done.

    We are creative

    We value creativity; it’s what sets us apart from others and we apply it to everything we do. We have fun with our ideas, while staying true to our brand.

    We are always moving forward

    We love trying new things, learning from our mistakes and embracing change that makes us better. We continuously innovate, seize the right opportunities and find quality solutions.

    We love what we do

    We’re passionate, believe in what we do and go above and beyond to do the best we can — all with a brilliantly infectious energy.


    T E C H @ N O T H S

    We are now mid-way through building a new modern microservices architecture-based platform. Using cutting edge technologies and different languages (React, Next JS, GraphQL, AWS ECS, Lambdas, Java 11 and Swift for iOS to name a few), over the last 12 months we’ve launched new mobile first & native app checkouts and an Android app, delivered a new search function and replatformed a new modern basket service, and are now in the process of moving all of our services to AWS Elastic Container Service.

    But there’s still lots to do. With a focus on learning, development, best practices, agile ways of working and team autonomy, we’re looking to grow our strong internal tech team even further. Which is where you come in…


    P R O C E S S

    We understand people are busy so we aim to be as flexible as we possibly can with our interview process. Below is a little taster of what our interview process looks like:-

    1. Technical phone call with an engineer (30 minutes)_ - We think it's important for you to get talking to our engineers here, to find out what life @ NOTHS is all about. Let us know what you're about too so we can make sure that we're the right fit!
    2. Technical challenge - we have a take-home tech challenge that you can complete whenever and wherever you can! It will then be reviewed by our engineers before inviting you to meet (or shall we say e-meet) with us in person.
    3. Hangout interview (2/2.5 hours), including a technical assessment and a team/values session

    F E E D B A C K

    Interviews can be stressful and take a lot of time and effort so we know how important the follow up is. Regardless of the outcome, we endeavour to provide each and every candidate with constructive feedback. So no matter what happens, you feel valued and take something away with you too.
