Platform Engineer

AND Digital is a fast growing, tech consultancy.

We work on large-scale, multi-industry, eCommerce and enterprise-level software development projects with best practice agile ways of working at the heart.


We are passionate about doing great work with interesting clients who we can take on a digital transformation journey.

We love to solve business problems with robust technical solutions, which we do by building products which are compelling, commercially viable and customer facing across multiple digital and e-commerce channels such as web, mobile, social and in-store.


Sometimes our work includes Greenfield projects where we can use the latest tech and other times we need to work with client’s legacy technology to get them to that point first.

This is an opportunity to share knowledge, nurture others, learn, innovate, build and deliver amazing digital products.
