Mid level Frontend Developer | React | MECCA Brands

Melbourne

That’s right we are back with ANOTHER role with our favorite local Melbourne success story who are industry leaders in the retail space. (and who doesn’t love a local success story).

We have been working hard with MECCA Brands over the past couple of months to help scale up their development team & with that growth, we are on the lookout for two more Frontend React devs!

Now I am not one to withhold information from people so I will cut to the chase.

As most of you know MECCA is an absolute power house retailer who was founded in 1994 and has been growing into new markets ever since!
  
They have had a pretty spectacular past 25 years and one of my personal favorite highlights would have to be their partnership with the NGV where they collaborated with featured artists such as Ai WeiWei. 
  
Now here is the really exciting part. This Front-end developer will get to be a part of the biggest technology projects that the company has ever seen. “No way Alex!” Yes way – biggest project since Ai WeiWei’s Lego art… which is actually pretty friggin cool if you haven’t seen it, you should definitely check it out! (https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/essay/ai-weiwei-letgo-room/)
  
 The project pipeline is full and the sky’s the limit as to what we can achieve! 

  • A revamp of the current website is at the top of the list to provide a better online customer experience – enter complete new re-design and build using React! YAS!  
  • Addition of extra payment gateways (Yay API integration!) 
  • Click and collect +more to allow them to grow further internationally

MECCA  have a large and growing focus in the e-commerce area, providing an opportunity for an experienced Front-End Developer. This role is instrumental in fulfilling the company’s vision and providing advanced solutions for their eCommerce site and related digital marketing campaigns.
  
You will be reporting to their Front-End Development Lead and working closely with their design and dedicated Digital team and mentored by the senior FED who is an all around legendary human! (we may be a bit biased)
  
The Front-End Developer is responsible for conceiving, planning, developing, and deploying awesome eCommerce web experiences.
