Your primary focus is on enhancing the customer experience – help us build a cutting edge customer experience, focusing on personalization and intuitiveness, while integrating ecommerce+supply chain backend systems. You'll be working with a small team of driven engineers and will have a significant amount of influence in the technical direction of the company.

Ideally you like to:
  • Build a web experience that will delight our customers.
  • Write clean, efficient, maintainable, and robust code. Lead by example.
  • Hands-on development of the core e-commerce functionality (Magento, but not limited to)

  • Experiment with recommendations algorithm, what if our system could...?
  • Work in an all-cloud based environment with low overhead.
  • Iterate quickly and deploy frequently.
  • Think and work outside of the "box". Just because our core ecommerce platform is Magento, doesn't mean you are or will be limited to working within Magento.

Useful Skills:

  • Experience with AWS is a strong plus.
  • Familiarity with Git and not being afraid of taking on minor devops work (aka being self sufficient) is a big plus.
  • Raise the engineering bar – Our start-up provides tremendous opportunities for growth by running lean and mean. The more responsibility you take on the more you learn and grow professionally.
  • A creative thinker with critical analysis and problem-solving skills, along with flexibility/adaptability and a knack for thinking on your feet will succeed in this role.
  • The capacity to juggle multiple priorities effectively within a fast-paced environment is critical.
  • Previous startup experience is a big plus
