About Us

Prodigi is the world’s most globally connected print on demand platform.

We help businesses scale at speed, simplify their supply chains and maximise their profits by giving them the tools to print any image onto any physical product and ship it to anywhere in the world. Supported by a global fulfilment network, we’re integrated with more than 50 print labs in over 10 countries – including four in-house manufacturing facilities in the UK, EU and US.

Founded in 2014, we pride ourselves on making our clients successful and recently ranked 14th in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 – an annual league table recognising the UK’s fastest-growing companies. We’re customer-focused, restlessly innovative and quality-obsessed. As the demand for our software continues to grow, you’ll get to work with everyone from artists and photographers to bands and major brands.

Our tech division is currently made up of three cross-functional product teams, all working to empower clients using our ecommerce applications, fulfilment API and global network of print labs.  We work remotely, with the aim of meeting up in person every six weeks (COVID permitting) at our main tech office in the centre of Cardiff. Each team is empowered to work the way that is most suitable to them. We learn from our mistakes and constantly challenge ourselves to better our ways of working.

The role

As a developer on the API team, you'll be tasked with helping design and implement new endpoints for our public facing merchant API and proxies, as well as building up internal microservices, their infrastructure-as-code and their respective APIs to assist the rest of the tech team in Prodigi with their duties.

We never like to solve the same problem twice, so we strive to write good quality code that doesn't need maintenance, and bug fixes that never come back. If you want to be a multiplier for the rest of the businesses success, then this is the team for you.

Specifically, you'll:

  • Work on maintaining the existing Prodigi Print API, adding features, fixing bugs and integrating new partners

  • Assist in designing, creating, maintaining and documenting microservices for other tech teams to consume, and to iterate with those teams to build the best services that the business needs

  • Support existing systems, using tools like Application Insights and logs to help debug issues and produce production ready fixes in a timely manner. We never want to see the same code fail twice

  • Work with seniors and tech leads to help build the solutions we need, and for you to grow and improve in the process

  • Work with our junior developers and help them with their daily duties and learning opportunities through regular pairing and knowledge sharing sessions

  • Review any and all code changes made to the API and all of its infrastructure

  • Take part in regular team ceremonies - standups, refinement, retrospectives and planning sessions

  • Can demonstrate great C# knowledge and coding experience and is comfortable building things from scratch with minimal guidance

  • Has an analytical mindset with great attention to details; ensuring code meets best possible quality standards and maximum performance.

  • Shows initiative - we’re a small company still, so we’ll expect you to take ownership of whatever you work on.

  • Wants to grow with us. As we continue to grow, you’ll be called on to take more responsibility, mentor others and lead teams.

  • Likes automation. We process and print over half a million items a month. We manage this by automating aggressively.

  • Familiarity with other cloud service providers technology, mainly AWS but other areas are useful
