  • Good knowledge of JavaScript with React
  • Experience using and deploying to cloud platforms
  • Good experience consuming and creating RESTful back end services.
  • Experience with GIT and the Atlassian stack would be beneficial

About The Company

We pride ourselves on being a diverse and inclusive business and are committed to making Morrisons a brilliant place to work, harbouring an environment where our people can thrive. Treating all colleagues with respect and dignity is the Morrisons way - we celebrate individuality and love different perspectives. It’s what you bring to the table that matters.

Ways of working

The wellbeing of our colleagues is really important to us and we want everyone to have a great home and work life balance. Because of this we've introduced a four day working week for all full time colleagues based at Hilmore House in Bradford. You’ll be able to flex your working hours around the core hours of 10am-4pm, and can choose to do different hours each day as long as you’re covering these core hours. Each four day week will contain four average nine hour days. We've also recognised the benefits of working across six days including Saturdays. To be more competitive and support our stores and sites more effectively, we now work over a six day operation, Monday to Saturday inclusive, and everyone in Hilmore House now works one Saturday in every four (or 13 a year), albeit Saturday will be a shorter working day of 6 hours. Your non-working day will need to fit in with the business needs so more information about this and which day you'd take off will be discussed at your interview.
