Senior Recruiter IT MYTOYS GROUP
Current projects we are working on
Project work at MYTOYS GROUP is an exciting and fast way for employees to develop technical and interpersonal skills, whilst providing a fast track into existing and emerging technologies.
In 2020 a twelve-month project was started, to enhance the myToys product search service. The business requirements; to reduce the time needed to update our product catalogue and remove technical limitations on the number of products we can offer to our customers. In June 2021, on successful completion of the project, the new service went live. A team of backend engineers, testing engineers and product owners worked together using Scrum to develop a solution based on modern technologies; AWS, Kafka, Redis, Kubernetes and data streaming. The team increased the product catalogue update efficiency by almost 99% which allowed them to develop a solution that can host a theoretical unlimited number of online products which continue to receive regular updates. Over the next couple of months the number of online products will increased from 1.5 million to 3.5 million, with the aim to have over 5 million online products by 2022. The solution our team developed has also reduced our operating costs of the product update service by 40%.
This project is an example of some of the technical challenges we face in IT at myToys, and where you can be part of a team that makes a difference. You can develop your IT skills, lead a team, or support others in a senior role, whilst working on exciting, challenging, and fun projects.

At the start of 2021 the MYTOYS GROUP embarked on a major project to comprehensively modernise its tech infrastructure and bring it up to a state-of-the-art level: an essential basis for ensuring that the MYTOYS GROUP can continue to develop successfully in the future. NHCC is a bundling of coordinated e-commerce software products (= Tech Stack), which are developed under the leadership of the OTTO GROUP and made available to the group companies. Core components are based on the AboutYou Cloud, among others. The Tech Stack is not yet fully developed, but is currently being designed and productised by the OTTO GROUP, Baur, Unito and other Group companies in a joint project (NHCC). myToys will now participate in this project and the development of NHCC with its competencies and requirements as a key Group partner.
