What's cool about this job
At REI we help our more than 5.5 million members have amazing outdoor experiences. It’s an exciting time as we’re rapidly changing to better meet our customer’s needs. We’re in the middle of transitioning to a micro-services architecture and migrating our infrastructure 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. Feature 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, current challenges include: How do we transition to AWS? What tools should we use? How do we scale and support our micro-services platform in other parts of the organization? How do we take advantage of cloud native technologies such as AWS Lambda?
