Job description

As a Software Engineer you contribute significantly toward realizing our ambition to deliver the best possible shopping experience. Your solutions constitute the basis for extensive innovations and optimizations of our distribution chain. These solutions deal with large data volumes, intensive asynchronous data transmissions and bulk transactions. A challenging position that requires all of your hardcore IT knowledge (Java, databases) and communicative skills. Together with your Scrum team, you develop, realize and maintain diverse IT solutions. You analyze rapidly changing business requirements, translate needs into clear specifications and make these specs come to life; from proof of concept to deployment. Although you are a Java specialist, this position beacons you to cross boundaries into other areas. You will also be a tester, resolve backlogged user stories, and play a part in the discussion and implementation of future-proofing our architecture, with utmost consideration for scalability. As a Scrum Master you also play a leading role in improving agile processes. A perfect position for Java developers who want to explore new heights in their field and are not afraid to broaden their IT horizons. Your role in bullet points Develop backend solutions, often – but not always – based on Java Test and maintain solutions, implement optimizations Analyze business requirements, translate into specifications and working solutions Proactive go-live support Resolve backlogged user stories, think about scalability improvements
