Join our digital transformation


We are RS Group. A global force in B2B ecommerce, our team is responsible for over 60 websites worldwide. We are pioneers, innovators and disruptors in the world of B2B ecommerce. We are on a digital transformation journey, continuously experimenting with new tools and technologies that put customers at the heart of everything we do.


Make an impact as a Software Engineer


Are you the kind of engineer that knows quality is a team effort? Do you want to craft products that you are proud of and improve the systems, processes and the people around you?


We are looking for JavaScript focussed engineers of all levels to help us with the transformation of our main e-commerce platform into a modern cloud-based, microservice powered experience.


The team


Joining our central Frameworks team, you will get the opportunity to work on several core technologies used by the rest of the engineering teams at RS and beyond. These include:


  • Atlas, our server-side rendering framework based on NextJS
  • our federated data graph utilising the latest GraphQL techniques
  • our design system backed React component library
  • the front to back integration of a headless CMS into our content



The tech


The team have quite a wide remit so we don’t expect a candidate to have all of these skills; there will be an expectation for all engineers to get involved in both client and server-based JavaScript, but you will be able to specialise.


  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript (ES6)
  • React
  • NextJS/NodeJS
  • GraphQL (ideally Apollo client and server)
  • Microservice architecture
  • Mature testing approach (unit tests, e2e testing, etc.)
  • Cloud and DevOps familiarity (ideally AWS)


We are continuously innovating and are open to introducing new tech, if you want to work somewhere where you can constantly learn and experiment with new tech then RS is the place to be.


The good stuff


We have an outstanding benefits package, which includes:

  • 25 days holiday (with the option to purchase a further five days)
  • Up to 10% Bonus
  • Extremely generous contributory pension scheme
  • Healthcare
  • Life assurance


We recognise that everyone is different and that the way in which people want to work and deliver at their best is different for everyone. In order to support this, we offer flexible working hours to allow you to fit work around your personal life, with remote working possible when needed.


Join us!


Do you want to join our digital revolution? Can you help deliver amazing things for our customers? Do you want to see your software engineering turn into cutting-edge solutions? Come join us and grow with a team of people who will challenge and inspire you!
