Senior Software Engineer (Chicago)
About Trunk Club:
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.
Who we are
At Trunk Club, we're building the future of retail, enabled through technology. We are polyglots, using the best tool for the problem at hand. You’ll see languages and technologies like Ruby, Sinatra, Sidekiq, ES6, React, Postgres, Redis, and Kafka. Come talk to us if you’re interested in creating scalable applications that create amazing user experiences for both internal and external customers.
The job involves the following responsibilities:
- Design and create services and system architecture
- Help improve our code quality through writing unit tests, automation and performing code reviews
- Work with the product and design teams to understand end-user requirements, formulate use cases, and then translate that into a pragmatic and effective technical solution
- Participate in brainstorming sessions and contribute ideas to our technology, algorithms and products
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.
