Senior Front-End Engineer (Chicago)

About us

Trunk Club, a Nordstrom Company, is a Chicago-based personalized styling service for men and women, offering both virtual and in-person shopping options. Shoppers can visit Trunk Club’s retail Clubhouses in Boston, Charleston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, Washington D.C., for an in-person styling session or custom fitting for any occasion. For those who prefer an at-home experience, Trunk Club offers a virtual styling option, where a personal stylist sends a curated trunk of clothing to their home based on the customer’s style, fit, and lifestyle preferences.

Working for Trunk Club

When you join Trunk Club, you join the Nordstrom family. Our fast-paced and entrepreneurial environment is paired with the strong history and experience of a retail legacy. We have access to some of the greatest minds in retail and technology and are constantly creating innovative strategies to develop the ultimate apparel solutions. We welcome your adaptability, your curiosity, and your passion to contribute to our unparalleled shopping experience! 

How we work

We pair - We frequently pair program. We work at pairing stations - two keyboards, two monitors, one mind. We work in an open team room; no cubicles or private offices. We believe software development is a collaborative process, where communication is key.

We work with agility - "Agile" means a lot of different things to different people these days, and quite frankly doesn't hold much weight at face value. We don’t believe in following a process for process’ sake. We ship frequently and focus on delivering incremental value – day by day, week by week, we make the company better.

Most importantly, we value our people - We spend time regularly working on whatever we’re interested in. We invest in our people by creating opportunities that combine our interests with what the company needs. We have lunch-and-learns, hack days, team outings, and encourage personal learning projects. Oh yeah, and we’ve got a forty-foot long bar.

Who you are

We want developers that have a keen business sense and an entrepreneurial attitude. We work directly with the business to build solutions that solve real problems and want developers that can thrive in an environment where you’re in the driver’s seat to create something amazing.

  • You have sizable experience architecting and shipping performant customer-facing single-page Javascript applications (with or without frameworks, such as React, Angular, or Ember.js).
  • You have sizable experience working with designers to create and maintain style guides & CSS standards across different applications.
  • You appreciate and advocate for web standards and accessibility (e.g. WCAG Standards, screenreader support, semantic HTML).
  • You're excited to play a critical role in helping drive internal technical initiatives to enhance end-user and developer experience (w.g. build & deployment mechanisms, Progressive Web Apps).
  • You have a solid understanding of JavaScript.
  • You get excited about functional programming, Redux, React, Flux, ES6+, CSS Modules, and Webpack. You'd love to talk about these over lunch. This is what excites us too, and what we use everyday.
