What You’ll Do

As an eCommerce developer and technical consultant, you’ll join a team of dedicated, experienced professionals to work on software development projects for our enterprise customers. You’ll get wide exposure to the business processes and technologies that support modern eCommerce systems, and the opportunity to work closely with the founders of our organization. If you’re new to eCommerce, Avatria will provide the opportunity to learn quickly and if you already have experience in the the industry, your expertise and ideas will be key to success on our projects.

  • Building Robust Solutions. You’ll learn new technology stacks, shape the final technical direction for our projects, and work closely with other members of the development team to deliver a high quality product. Each developer on our team plays a critical role in ensuring the success of our customer’s initiatives, and you will see the importance of your work.
  • Software development. You’ll be a key contributor to our customers’ Java eCommerce web application development projects. You’ll work across the stack, from backend Java development to frontend HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You’ll contribute to large pieces of functionality in the final product, and the code you write will power web applications that millions of people across the globe will use, generating hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars in revenue for our customers.
  • Integrated team collaboration. You’ll work closely with business analysts, visual designers, quality assurance team members, and other developers to accomplish your goals. You’ll also help teach your colleagues in our customers’ organizations about the project we’re working on, and help build their capacity to maintain and expand what we create for them over the long term.

You’ll be a good fit for this role if you have experience with:

  • Have full-stack Java web development experience. Your colleagues will look to you for both a high-level understanding of how all the component parts of a large Java web applications fit together, and your practical hands-on experience working across the stack. To do well, you should already be generally proficient in:
  • Working with the frameworks and tools used to build large-scale Java web apps, such as Spring/JEE;
  • Writing HTML and CSS to modern standards;
  • Implementing frontend features in both JavaScript and jQuery.
  • Enjoy technical problem solving. Many of our projects push up against the boundaries of what standard tools and libraries can do. You’ll use your knowledge of programming concepts and paradigms, data structures, design patterns, networking, and computer architecture to navigate new and unknown technical problems, and enable our customers to operate at the scale they need to in order to succeed.

We’d also like to see (but don’t require) experience with:

  • At least one enterprise eCommerce platform, like SAP Commerce (Hybris)
  • Single Page Application frameworks like Angular 1 and 2, React, or Backbone
  • Search technologies like Solr or Elasticsearch
  • Other Java frameworks and tools such as Hibernate/JPA, and JAX-RS/WS
