Job Type: Full Time / Permanent
As a Senior Software Engineer, you will help us drive our key retail disruption initiatives through technology that matters. We empower our engineers to tear down the silos and work collaboratively with their product team to deliver solutions. We work in nimble product teams composed of engineers, designers, and product managers that aren’t bogged down by project plans and politics, but are empowered to continuously create, test and execute. One of the best parts is after the work is done, you get to see the results of your work in our stores, online and throughout our business. You get to make a difference. First, let’s talk Tech. The Software teams leverage technology to maximize the satisfaction and delight of our customers while providing them the value they need in an efficient and high-impact manner. Here are the technology platforms we work on and the latest technologies we use to build high-quality apps for our customers. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a master at them all. Ideally, you’ll have experience in more than a few of them. • Java Spring Boot, Kotlin, Angular, React, Kafka, ElasticSearch, etc.
As an Software Engineer II you will: • Bring at least 5 years of experience to the table • Work collaboratively with designers, product managers, and engineers • Leverage cutting-edge technologies and modern practices • Build and ship high-quality code at a rapid pace • Work with open-source tools to build new technologies • Have opportunities for career development as we continue to invest in our talent. • Be a part of a collaborative, innovative culture tackling the challenges of scaling our business and serving up new experiences for our customers. • Work with great people in an engaging, remote environment while still having access to the many amenities the Pittsburgh campus has to offer, including a world-class health club, hoteling space, collaboration rooms, and enabled technology for hybrid meetings. We believe that there is always a better way.
So, we will expect you to: • Continuously learn modern software design and development core practices, utilizing articles, MeetUps, conferences, tech talks, etc. • Deliver complex tasks to production, working independently when required. • Use best practices in high quality code and continue to push and share your knowledge. • Review and discuss code with engineering peers and leaders to understand best practices and optimal design patterns • Take the initiative to drive new ideas and projects • Understand the business context of the larger domain and potentially other domain areas • Be able to advocate and evangelize specific technologies within and outside the wider organization • Be able to support and mentor seasoned technologists in a structured manner and ad-hoc • A willingness to continuously learn, experiment, and innovate. Innovation is a critical part of our culture and an expectation for all teammates. If you like brainstorming with your peers on how to disrupt your product domain – or retail as a whole – you’ve come to the right place!
Lastly, here’s some stuff that won’t be part of your day-to-day. You won’t: • Work in a silo • Be limited by project plans • Find yourself stuck in a boring cube • Pay to park or be stuck in a corporate high-rise • Be pigeonholed into proprietary and stagnant codebases.
