What's cool about this job

At REI.com we strive to help our more than 5.5 million members, have amazing outdoor experiences. It’s exciting times here and a lot of change is taking place. We’ve transitioned to true continuous deployment, have made big strides in implementing a micro-service architecture, and have begun moving our platform to AWS.

 

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Software Engineer to join our Digital Platform team. This team builds the tools and platforms that are the foundation for REI.com and other cross-channel services. Scrum teams own their services but we create the tools to help them work fast and efficiently. Our tools create, build, deploy, monitor, and maintain services throughout their entire lifecycle. We value DevOps and Continuous Delivery principles.

Being a true continuous deployment shop, on your first day you might end up committing code that goes to production within minutes, deploy a new service to AWS, or write a new library that could potentially be consumed by dozens of services. You certainly won’t be bored, challenges abound: How do we transition to AWS? What tools should we use? How do we reduce the inherent risks of quick and frequent deployments to production but at the same time not slow productivity? Should we use Kubernetes, Docker Swarm or ECS?
