We believe that there is always a better way.

So, we will expect you to: Automate Everything. Help us transform the way we do work by automating manual processes, adding reliability, saving time, and freeing up your coworkers to do more valuable work.

Increase your business acumen by consistently learning about other parts of the business. Have a willingness to continuously learn, experiment, and innovate. Innovation is a critical part of our culture and an expectation for all employees. 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.

Experience: Our automation ecosystem is built on the UiPath platform. Experience with UiPath or similar platforms (Blue Prism, Automation Anywhere, etc) is a must. UiPath developer certification / advanced developer certification is preferred. As an RPA Engineer, a firm background with .NET development is also a must. Additionally, strong knowledge of relational databases (Oracle, MS SQL Server, etc) is required. Experience with other languages, frameworks, or tools is a plus! Experience implementing multi-Bot architectures within UiPath is highly desired. Experience creating and maintaining attended and unattended bots. Experience creating reusable components that can be shared between projects and implementations. Exposure to ways of monitoring bot performance, health, and utilization. Experience installing, configuring, updating, and maintaining necessary server architecture for running bots is a plus. Experience working with Process Mining, NLP, Computer Vision, and automation test suite is a plus. Experience with Agile Development and knowledge on Agile Deployment tools and versioning using Git or similar tools is a nice to have. Experience creating other automations, outside of RPA tools (examples include batch scripts, code-based automations, or tools such as Control-M) is a nice to have. Experience automating Microsoft Outlook and Excel is not required but is highly desired. Experience with OCR, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Power BI and Ansible is a plus. A well-rounded development background is strongly desired. Are you familiar with writing or consuming APIs, writing code libraries, or other automation tools and approaches? Great!
