About The Role
We are all about providing customers with flexibility and choice. Our goal is to build the products and features that help our customers find the right products for them. We obsess over the journey our customer takes and strive to make this as easy as possible.
As part of this team, you’ll be using the latest front-end techniques for ownership and autonomy, including micro-front ends. You’ll be building the front-end features that enable intuitive search and display of all products on our sites.
We build, measure and learn through our development, seeking to release new capabilities early to bring value whilst iterating to create even better customer impact. We are highly collaborative in our multi-disciplinary team and relationships. We care about the value we add, and hold ourselves accountable for the usability, resiliency and security of our products.
So, if you love solving interesting and challenging problems, we are the company for you!!!!
We invest in you!!
We have launched our AWS Learning Pathways for Software Developers. We’ll offer you the opportunity to choose a pathway towards learning increasingly critical skills and enable the technology direction of AO Tech.

A Bit About Us
At AO, we want to make sure our customers are happy. When they have a smile on their face, we know we’ve done a good job. It’s at the heart of everything we do, and it’s why our logo is always smiling.
When it comes to appliances and electricals, we’ve got the lot. Washing machines? Yep. TVs? Check. Laptops? Absolutely. Everything except doorbells (just kidding, we’ve got those too).
We’re passionate, relentless and full of beans, determined to make a difference and change the world for the better. From massive changes to tiny tweaks - making a difference is what keeps us driven.
It started at a pub in Bolton with a £1 bet and a belief that things could be done better!
Why Choose AO?
Our people are our superpower, and that’s no accident. We’re looking for everyday heroes who want to learn and help other people achieve. Those glass-half-full-types who have an appetite for a better tomorrow.
With AO, the sky’s the limit. We’ll support you to be the best version of yourself and always drive your career forward.
We keep things simple. We say things like "treat every customer like they’re your gran" and "make decisions your mum would be proud of" because we’re personal and act with integrity - every day in every action.
We’re forward thinking with both Tech and our people. We know how important family and wellbeing are - flexibility is key to be able to get that balance of life just right, so we operate core hours of 10-4pm to support your lifestyle.
It’s not about where you work, but about how you work and the value you add. This means for most roles, you can split your time working from home, the office, or a coffee shop if that’s where you thrive the most. Whatever the task, project or product, we trust our teams to work together, collaborate and make the sensible choice.
We believe diversity will help us find a better way. We want our workforce to be as diverse as our customers by celebrating, valuing and respecting every individual. We achieve this by nurturing a culture of inclusion where every voice matters. We welcome applications from everyone and we can make adjustments to our interview process according to your needs.
We’ve designed our benefits to cover everything from big moments to little helps. As well all as the essentials, like pensions and holidays, we’ve got our own "AO Perks" to help you with the little things that matter.
