TECHNICAL LEAD - WEB
Purpose: Act as a hands on tech leader for our web platforms as we continue our international growth plans.
Here at Beauty Bay, technology is the driving force behind our current & future growth plans as we constantly look at new ways to enhance our customers shopping experience.

We like a relaxed working environment and there’s always a buzz about our offices (and even in this current climate our team have embraced remote working with daily events to keep us all closely aligned).
We operate a flexible working policy, so you choose the hours that work best for you. Breakfast is on us and we have a casual dress code. We offer 33 days holiday per year, a generous staff discount scheme, regular team socials and more….
There’s nothing that excites us more than hiring great talent, fuelling it, then letting it fly. We’d love to hear from you today, so get in touch with our Talent Partner, Emily Hockings, she’d love to discuss this role further.
