Unmade is a global fashion software company driving innovation through customisation and delivering an end-to-end digital solution for on-demand production at scale. Started by Hal Watts, Kirsty Emery-Laws and Ben Alun-Jones in 2014, the company was born out of a desire to reimagine both the design and manufacturing processes within the fashion industry, so brands only make what is actually sold, resulting in minimal waste. It then officially launched as Unmade in 2015, having previously been called Knyttan.
We were nominated for the LVMH Innovation Award at VivaTech in Paris, and in 2017, we won the Best Use of Innovation at the Drapers Digital Awards in London.
Furthermore, Unmade was most recently named as one of the 100 best creatively led businesses in the UK by The Creative Industry Council, and in May 2018, it completed the Lafayette Plug and Play program as part of the renowned Plug and Play innovation accelerator. Pieces from Unmade are now a part of the permanent collections at both the The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
We work with 4 out of the 25 largest groups in the fashion industry, and in addition we have clients like Farfetch, Opening Ceremony, Christopher Raeburn, Rapha, Moniker, and others, which work with us to give their customers the option to customise the products they want.
We are a team of 30 people working across Engineering, Design & Product, Sales & Marketing, Customer Success, and Operations, and are based at Somerset House, one of London's most important and exciting cultural landmarks.

About the role:
We’re building a SaaS product, and you will be building upon existing systems and help shape the architecture of the platform. Our technology stack covers everything from graphics programming, order processing and systems integrations to custom language compilers for industrial knitting machines.
Our architecture consists of services and Django web applications. We use Django Admin to control the end-to-end flow of product creation, from allowing our customers to customise their designs, to getting the machines to print, knit, or embroider their fashion products, to sending the specs to factories, to finally delivering their finished product. It is a versatile and exciting role that will allow you to learn and to develop your skills further in an inclusive and supportive environment.
To be successful in this role, you will need to have:

What we will not do during your interviews with us:
Create a very rigid interview process that doesn’t allow for the conversation to flow. We will make sure we cover everything we need to know from you, while also allowing you to ask questions and get to know us and the team better. This is as much about you interviewing us as it is about us interviewing you.
