Moonpig owns their supply chain end to end by manufacturing and printing the products they sell via the web and mobile.
Due to continued growth and the need to attract talent in the UK, the CTO was tasked with driving innovation through technology. With this in mind and following insight provided by Uniting Cloud regarding the North West market, Moonpig made a strategic decision to open a new office based in Manchester for their new Software Engineering team. The team are responsible for greenfield, innovative development and evolving their current landscape to a Microservices technology platform.
Uniting Cloud partnered with Moonpig to support the creation of the new team of 50 Software Engineers in Manchester.
Due to the competitive market within the North West and scale of recruitment needed, Uniting Cloud was been presented with a number of challenges around culture, and availability of top quartile talent.
Uniting Cloud worked closely with the CTO, Director of Software Engineering and the Head of Talent to help to build a high performing team. The Technology stack was working predominately across REACT, C#.net, Microservices, AWS
The 50 roles cover:
Principal Software Engineers
Software Engineering Managers
Senior Software Engineers
The Manchester team is successfully building, and a number of our candidates have since been promoted as they have continued to add value to the team and the company's P&L. Uniting Cloud have since been introduced to the London teams to help to build the teams further.
