With upwards of 5 million members, we sell top branded fashion and homeware products, process tens of thousands of orders per day and we are one of the most successful E-Commerce brands in the UK.

Its dynamic, diverse and an incredibly exciting time as BrandAlley migrates its front-end web platform into Magento 2 and moves its entire back office team into a custom built platform consisting of a PIM, warehousing, merchandising, customer service, and marketing modules. With this new architecture in place 2021 will see a backlog of new features developed for www.brandalley.co.uk and our European site (www.brandalley.fr) built and migrated onto its own Magento 2 instance and connected into the same back office systems as the UK site.
Along with the launch of our IOS and Android Apps, 2021 can also see the further break-up of the Magento user interface layer into rich Progressive Web Apps making this a truly exciting opportunity.
