We are notonthehighstreet. 'The home of thoughtful gifts' and the leading curated modern marketplace connecting the best small creative businesses, with the world. We have gained the trust and loyalty of our customers through offering an alternative to the High Street: a curated product selection with unique designs, high-quality craftsmanship and inspiring stories about the people who make them.
Founded in 2006 by Holly Tucker MBE and Sophie Cornish MBE, we connect 3 million customers to 5000 creative small businesses (who we call Partners) from across the country. We employ over 200 staff who are normally based in our headquarters in Richmond (aka ‘Silicon-Upon-Thames’)...albeit we've all been beavering away from home since March!
At notonthehighstreet, we are excited about discovering and developing talented, dedicated creative people with exceptionally high standards. Whether working with our Partners to help grow their business, or behind the scenes developing code, we are continuously innovating... And the best bit? We’re making a difference to our Partners’ lives as we do it.

We are now mid-way through building a new modern microservices architecture-based platform. Using cutting edge technologies and different languages (React, Next JS, GraphQL, AWS ECS, Lambdas, Java 11 and Swift for iOS to name a few), over the last 12 months we’ve launched new mobile first & native app checkouts and an Android app, delivered a new search function and replatformed a new modern basket service, and are now in the process of moving all of our services to AWS Elastic Container Service.
But there’s still lots to do. With a focus on learning, development, best practices, agile ways of working and team autonomy, we’re looking to grow our strong internal tech team even further. Which is where you come in…..
We’ll ensure that you keep moving forward by organising regular learning lunches, hackathons, technical book clubs and regular guild meetings. Attendance of conferences, meetups, are also actively encouraged as is sharing your knowledge outside of the company by speaking at these events. We genuinely care about your personal and technical development; as an engineer you want to progress in your career and we provide the framework to make sure you do.
It’s important to us that our people are well looked after, which is why we offer everyone BUPA healthcare, life insurance and a pension plan. Because having a break is important for your physical and mental wellbeing, our holiday allowance is 25 days (plus bank holidays) AND your entitlement increases an extra day for every 2 years you spend with us.
The team spirit at NOTHS House is legendary, and while we all miss the in-office massages, hair cuts and the abundance of free fruit, we’ve taken to our virtual world with gusto and bring the team together regularly for socials and of course the odd Zoom quiz!
We endeavour to support our people to make sure work….well, works for them. And the pretty big issue of the recent global pandemic has propelled us into working more flexibly than ever before. With the office closed until further notice (at least until government social distancing advice has changed), we’re using the lessons learnt over this period to evolve our approach to flexible working whilst ensuring we all still get together as one #teamnoths
