Senior Python Engineer, Digital Innovation Lab, NYC - SNKRS App

We're taking digital to the next level. We've opened a new Digital Innovation Lab (DIL) in NYC that's dedicated to creating engaging and innovative consumer experiences across all of our digital products and services. And you're going to help grow the DIL and Nike's New York technology presence with us. All the passion and hustle of a start-up, but at the scale, stability, and benefits of Nike.

Goals of the Digital Innovation Lab in NYC:
• Bring community & collaboration features to digital products and services
• Build empowered teams of high functioning ICs
• Rethinking about how we do digital experiences
• Grow Nike's presence in New York's technology community

The Digital Innovation Lab will be initially focused on our SNKRS app, a sleekly designed online store stocked with high-end shoes. This application is targeted towards the sneaker enthusiast, and it's function extends beyond the digital storefront. While shoes are a consumer staple, Nike's success in footwear owes a great deal to the lifestyle brand and image that the company has cultivated, and there exists a sizable market of sneaker enthusiasts. A culture has developed around the products that places a premium on fashion and rarity, and the SNKRS app represents an attempt by Nike to further bridge sneaker culture into the social-media sphere.
