About Us

Who we are and what do we do

We are the Moonpig Engineering Team and we build awesome products!  These include native apps, a website, bespoke tools and productions systems to create and ship our unique products.

If you ever wondered what a “Moonpiglet” looks like – well, here you go!  This photo shows our amazing and talented Engineering and Product teams – the people responsible for building the products that you use to make someone’s day!

The Moonpig Way of Working

There’s always lots to do here, so to keep it focused we’re organised in to “Honeycombs”.  Born and bred at Moonpig, Honeycombs are cross-functional teams of people from engineering, product and the wider business that focus on achieving clear measurable goals to solve customer problems, exploit business opportunities and drive growth.

All members of the honeycomb are encouraged to generate and share ideas, and this close collaboration encourages innovation across the business.  We currently have six active Honeycombs focused on three major parts of the business: Ecommerce, Back Office & Production.

Agile methods and practices are a fundamental part of the way we work.  We leverage the Kanban framework to develop software using a lean, data-driven, iterative approach, supported by continuous deployment.  Autonomy is highly valued, and our engineers are empowered to design, write, test and deploy high quality code. Pairing is widely practiced to support quality, learning and domain knowledge.
We embrace continuous improvement, and 20% of development effort is dedicated to a technical backlog that is owned and prioritised by the engineering team.  We promote a culture of learning with regular lunch & learns (and lots of pizza), TDD katas and conferences.  We also host meetups and actively engage in the agile and engineering community.
Fun is a very big part of life at Moonpig – as well as our monthly birthday drinks, we have annual Christmas and Summer parties and the legendary Engineering Christmas Drinks in the local sports bar.  To keep fun high on the agenda, the engineering team has even appointed its own Chief Entertainment Officer!

What is Moonpig?

Our cards have been landing on doormats for over 15 years now. If you haven’t given or received a Moonpig card, you’ve been missing out on the laughs (and maybe a few sentimental tears).

Never ones to rest on our haunches, we are always adding new card designs, and thinking of new ways for you to be creative and thoughtful.

And you’ve really been showing the love – not just with cards, but with beautiful hand-tied flower bouquets and brilliantly thoughtful gifts to stretch those smiles even further.

There’s some clever stuff and some hard work going on to make all this happen, but more than anything, we’re just a bunch of people that enjoy making it easy for you to make someone else’s day.
