    Founded in 2006 by Holly Tucker MBE and Sophie Cornish MBE, we connect 7 million customers to over 4000 creative small businesses (who we call our Partners) from across the globe. Under the guidance of CEO Barrie Seidenberg, we employ circa 150 staff who are based in our headquarters in green and leafy Richmond (aka 'Silicon-Upon-Thames').

    At notonthehighstreet, we are excited about discovering and developing talented, dedicated and creative people with exceptionally high standards. Whether working with our Partners to help grow their business, or behind the scenes developing code, we are continuously innovating... and the best bit? We're making a difference to our Partners' lives as we do it.

    We're about to embark on an ambitious new phase of development to advance our technology, including platform re-architecture to serverless microservices, rewriting the front-end and introducing new big data and machine learning platforms. It's an exciting time and we need to strengthen and grow our teams!
    Our current tech stack is Ruby on Rails and we are going to be rebuilding the platform mainly in Java. Our future tech stack includes Java/Graph QL/Node.js on the back end and then Javascript with React on the front end. All of them will be hosted in AWS functions.

    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 (from the comfort of your sofa!) - Unless you'd like the technical part to happen on site, we have a take-home tech chellenge that you can complete whenever and wherever you can! It will then be reviewed by our engineers before inviting you on site to meet with us in person.
    3. On site interview (2 hours) - Come on in and meet the team (both tech and non-tech), explore our offices and experience for yourself what behind the scenes at NOTHS is like...

    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.
