Since Watchfinder & Co. was first founded in 2002, it has grown to become the premier resource from which to buy and sell premium pre-owned watches. With thousands of watches available from more than 50 brands, including Rolex, Omega, IWC and more, plus boutiques across the UK and a manufacturer certified service centre, Watchfinder has established itself as the top pre-owned watch specialist.

Watchfinder is a global retailer specialising in the sale of pre-owned watches. We’re an e-commerce business with an exciting business strategy with further international growth. Over the past few years, we’ve built and introduced new innovative ways for our consumers to buy and sell their products to us. We always seek to improve our development techniques and welcome feedback, criticisms and suggestions of improvement from our team of humble developers.

As the Software Architect, you can expect to work closely with the CTO, Product Owner and the development team to build and architect software and platform development solutions on a wide range of projects. We use a strong stack here at Watchfinder, and we’re not afraid to try new technologies or techniques and we’re also not afraid to drop them either.
