"Well Pharmacy":https://www.well.co.uk/ is the the UK’s largest independent pharmacy with over 760 stores across the UK. Our mission as a company is to build the best prescription experience in the UK.

"Well Digital":https://blog.well.co.uk/well-digital/ is a startup team creating new world-class digital products and services. We have a big ambition: to bring pharmacy into the digital age.

Since we started Well Digital just over a year ago, we’ve launched the "UK’s first Viagra subscription service":https://blog.well.co.uk/how-we-built-the-uks-first-viagra-subscription-service-cd3c96c332bc/ and built a new "digital NHS prescription delivery service":https://blog.well.co.uk/were-building-a-better-pharmacy-50bc2e04cd97/.

Our customers already love our products: metrics are strong, and most of our initial growth has been through word of mouth.

We’re looking for a *product-aware web engineer* to help us build the UK’s leading digital pharmacy service.

We’ve been testing our iPhone app for a couple of months, and we’ve just started building on web too.

You'll work closely with our designers and the rest of our engineering team, shaping the development of our product to give our customers the best experience on web.

As a team, you’ll be trusted to build the right things in the right way to drive customer growth and satisfaction.

Our iPhone app is native Swift talking to a serverless backend written in Go. We make extensive use of AWS services. We’ve also built a back office web system (PharmOS) using React.

* you have a working knowledge of cloud technologies e.g. AWS
* you build strong relationships and love to collaborate
* you like learning new programming tools and techniques

*What’s in it for you*

*Fair compensation and generous benefits:*

* 25 days annual leave

*Set up to succeed:*
