International development team working on a SOA e-commerce platform serving as a basis for one of the most popular online shops with electronics in the UK – Currys and PC World. The platform handles more than 7,000,000 unique visitors per day and processes 8 orders per second during the peak season.

We are agile with the aim of becoming a multichannel leader on the EU market. Our business vision is “We help everyone enjoy amazing technology”. Currently we are looking for a Senior PHP Developer to join one of our development teams - Account & Communication.

What will you do? You will:

Account Team is responsible for the customer life cycle on websites. The journey starts with registration of an account, followed by a sign-in form and My Account page built as a Single Page Application in React.

Customer can stay signed in for a long period of time using persistent login based on JWT stored in COOKIE in the browser. The JWT allows Currys website to recognise a customer allowing them to work in "semi" authentic mode protecting sensitive operations like changes in the account or completing a purchase.

One of the most positively recognised features is Save for Later. Our customers can build a list of products they wish to watch and consider purchasing for later. When the price of such products gets dropped, Currys sends an e-mail notification to these customers. In the near future there will be introduced more channels like a bell notification in Currys website header or a push notification for our mobile application.
