Principal Software Engineer - Sterling OMS
Here at The Very Group we’re on an exciting journey to transform our technology estate and create even better experiences for our customers. We’re doing that by modernising our existing systems and platforms, utilising a wider variety of modern, cloud-based technologies. We encourage diversity, both in terms of people, technical skills and knowledge.
About the role:
We are looking for a Principal Software Engineer to join our Logistics and Fulfillment Tribe.
Our Tech teams have recently gone through a transition to a new working model and culture, one structured around cross-functional teams we called squads. Our squads will make up an overall Tribe. Each tribe is responsible for designing, building, running and improving the technology that relates to their business area, all aimed at providing a world class experience for our customers.
Our Principal Software Engineers will work as Tech Leads within autonomous product teams delivering products that are part of the rebuild and in squads aligned to our other key business goals. Our Principal Software Engineers will take responsibility for the technical delivery of great software and they will lead the technical direction for the team.
The ability to coach and mentor team members is essential to this role.
Within our model, Agile software development is key. For these roles you’ll need experience in Agile practice such as BDD, TDD and pair programming.
We are looking for people who can explain very technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders, carry out technical prioritisation and work well with colleagues in and outside of the team at all levels.
About the Tribe
The Logistics & Fulfilment Tribe is responsible for designing, building, changing and running technology across all our logistics & fulfilment products and functions. It supports the capabilities of Inbound logistics, Outbound Logistics, Warehouse Management and Order Management.
More specifically, this role will be working on designing and developing solutions for IBM Sterling Commerce OMS and integrating it with AWS. Some of the tech we are working with includes:
Java / Spring Boot, AWS, Jenkins, Terraform, REST APIs, Serverless, Lambda, CI/CD and more.
We wouldn't expect you to have prior experience with all the above, but having some of that and also the experience with IBM Sterling OMS is crucial.
