Unmade is enabling the fashion and sportswear industries to become demand-driven.

Our platform, UnmadeOS, is a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution that transforms how brands sell, make and manage their products. UnmadeOS supports the whole supply chain from intuitive interfaces for consumers with photorealistic previews of a unique design (for example Rapha Custom), to creating ready-to-manufacture outputs that enables factories to make lower volumes affordably.

We support some of the most recognisable fashion, lifestyle, and sportswear brands, such as New Balance and Rapha. Watch this video for more about what we do.

Unmade is a friendly and enthusiastic team, with a diverse range of skills and backgrounds, that shares in our belief that the fashion industry is in need of radical change. We are building a dynamic, supportive environment that strives to ensure everyone can do their best work, and have fun doing it!

The role

We are looking for a Senior Front-end Engineer to help us develop UnmadeOS into the premier solution to power demand-driven business models. We see software development as a team sport and you will be working closely with members of the Customer Success, Design, Product and Sales Teams as well as with other members of the Engineering Team.

We make use of React, Typescript, SVGs and WebGL for the customisation front end, and have a services architecture, with a combination of Django and Node apps deployed to AWS and managed with Terraform for our backend.

You will be a member of our talented 8 person engineering team and report to our Head of Engineering.

  • We push for the best, but know that even with the best laid plans things can go wrong. Failure is not a dirty word, and we’re ok sharing when it happens.

  • Collaborating with members of the engineering team to simplify the architecture of our frontend codebases and make them easier to make changes to.

  • Involved in discussions with our customers and users about the challenges they face and how we can address them.
  • Seeking feedback, developing in your role and learning new skills.
  • Demonstrating the company’s values.

In order to be successful in this role you will need to:

  • Have significant experience working with React based web applications.
  • Be accustomed to collaborating with engineers, product managers and designers to take an agile approach to solving problems and delivering value to your organisation and their customers.
  • Be an effective listener and communicator with engineers, the wider company and customers.
