“I get to be part of the brand story and live my dream of working somewhere that’s agile with an unrivalled pace.”
Why PrettyLittleThing? What makes it different?
PrettyLittleThing is an exciting brand to work for and, as a tech team, there’s always a massive variety of projects. We’re a huge brand with a lean structure; we make decisions quickly and get things done. I work with exceptionally talented people who always have new ideas and we get to have an impact and add value in everything we do. We’re agile, fast-paced, quality-focused, and there’s no red tape. My team and I can make things happen for our global success story.
What led you here, and what keeps you here?
I came to PrettyLittleThing from financial services. I wanted a change and a new experience. I saw that PrettyLittleThing were on a steep growth curve, and I wanted to be involved in the early stages and help shape that growth. I get to be part of the brand story and live my dream of working somewhere that’s agile with an unrivalled pace. Better still, it’s full of talented, innovative people to work with and learn from.
What’s your vision, strategy, and leadership style?
Our vision is to deliver software and tech services quickly in a seamless and agile way. We believe in a test and learn approach, so optimisation is front of mind, always. For us it’s all about adding value. Tech is all about continuous improvement, so everything we do is scalable.
My leadership style is about empowerment – my teams have ownership over their product, and I make sure that I help them focus on deriving value from their work. My team works hand in hand with the wider business and builds great relationships. I structure the team around capacity for continuous growth. Our tech goals must align with brand strategy, so I’m big on collaboration; it’s essential.
Why should top talent join us? What’s in it for them?
Our tech stack is exciting, as are the projects we get to shape and deliver. Being part of PrettyLittleThing is really special. It’s a great feeling knowing your impact makes it even better every day. Our tech team is great to be a part of and learn from. Because our teams roll their sleeves up and get stuck in, they gain so much varied experience, which truly enhances their career. You’re surrounded by innovation and talent, and because of this, people learn and progress quickly. The brand and business embrace change, so we have to adapt – this offers so much opportunity for development and career progression.
