Sr. Engineer 2 - Order/Inventory Management

Nordstrom
Chicago
3 weeks ago
We are looking for a skilled individual to provide valuable technical expertise to our projects and production support for our systems. When you join our team, you are part of the team that manages inventory management and movement decisions to support our business in multi-market and multi-channels with a continuous aim to improve and optimize the end-user experience. You’re the type of person who thrives on taking care of things the right way the first time. You excel at taking a project from scoping requirements to design, coding and actual launch of the project. When you notice a bug or an issue, you take it upon yourself to investigate and come up with an efficient and scalable solution. When you say “I’ll take care of it” we know it’ll be done well. You love working with open source technologies and have experience with technologies & frameworks like Java, Spring Boot, Kafka, Docker and Kubernetes but you are ready to roll up your sleeves and dive into PL/SQL to integrate with Oracle products as needed. You are able to clearly articulate what building cloud native applications entails and have experience using at least one of the three major cloud platforms. (AWS, Azure, GCP). You are passionate about the virtues of writing SOLID code and can passionately explain the difference between Behavior Driven Development and Test Driven Development to a junior developer. You have a strong desire to automate everything. You hate hearing the words “It has always been done this way” and are curious about why things are done the way they are today. You like contributing to open source projects and believe that reading other people’s code widens your perspective and skillset. You have your stylistic preferences when it comes to code but understand the discipline it takes to keep the source code maintainable. You love troubleshooting issues and know what it takes to get that code you wrote to Production if the Zombie apocalypse hits and the rest of the team is unavailable. You will develop and implement new technologies as well as maintain and enhance existing systems. You will create and support interfaces with internal systems, other technology teams across the company, and key external vendor applications. You will thrive in an intellectually challenging environment, solve problems and work with team members to create high quality solutions.
