Prodigi Group is a technology and manufacturing business specialising in the creation and fulfilment  of high-volume, customised products. We help companies selling personalised products to simplify  their supply-chains and maximise their profits. We’re creating a platform which allows anyone to turn  any digital image into any physical product and have it manufactured anywhere in the world. We  consider ourselves an infrastructure business using software to build a global fulfilment network for  personalised products.

2019 has been a big year for us, with work towards growing our client base by heavy development on  a new Shopify app. We’ve expanded our fulfillment network to boost our product range and global  reach, and have recently acquired another print-on-demand company to further push forward our  solution. There is a very high demand for Shopify support from our clients and you will get to help  artists, illustrators, photographers, brands and bands across the world to build meaningful  businesses. You will have real impact.    

Your role would be to take the lead with our Python backend of our Shopify service plus others.  Mentoring more junior members of the team in Python and software development generally, as well  as members more familiar with different tech stacks and languages. You will be heavily involved in  the overall direction of our services, and will be relied upon to make decisions regarding its structure,  build process and code maintainability.

● Designing, building, consuming APIs 

● Understanding of Microservice Architecture  

● C# .Net Core  

● Experience with Shopify integrations & application development would be great  

● We use lots of other stuff too - but if you’re the right candidate, you’ll enjoy picking up any  new tools or frameworks you don’t already know. 

Our offer 
● Competitive salary and a great work-life balance - you will have 25 days holiday per year,  flexible hours and flexible working location.  

● We believe in equal opportunity and value diversity. We believe that varied perspectives,  experiences and backgrounds lead to a workplace that's better for everyone.
