About The Role

My client is looking for a full time, highly-skilled Senior Software Engineer, to help build out our core technical product offerings. Reporting directly to the Principle Software Engineer, you will be executing our ambitious roadmap and redefining the future of the home decor space.

This role will give you the opportunity to build both internal and external products.

The Company Tech Stack

They currently have a mono repo driven by Lerna for all our applications. Their front-end application is built using NextJS, we also utilise TypeScript, React, Styled Components, and our API is built on ExpressJS. To supercharge our system we leverage serverless functions with event queues to drive all our integrations. This is all supported by AWS, Terraform and CircleCI.

To maintain quality throughout our applications we employ the use of Jest and React Testing Library for our unit testing. We are also building out our functional testing framework with Cypress.

The heart of their technology is their E-commerce layer, built upon Shopify's headless StoreFront API and GraphCMSs headless CMS API. To maintain quality and showcase our work we use Storybook to build out our UI components using atomic design principles.
