Jet - Hoboken, NJ
We need super smart engineers from all levels to help us build one of the best engineered e-commerce platform in the world (big talk we know, but that is our goal!). Our engineers combine creativity, curiosity, and drive to continuously perfect and revolutionize Jet/Walmart from the inside out. We are looking to bring more intellectually curious engineers who are passionate about technology in general (Jet/Walmart is a technology first company and prides itself on its culture of learning and knowledge sharing and we want all our engineers to be as passionate as we are!)
What you will be Working on
Our platform is largely an event driven platform implemented via a microservice architecture. The platform runs in the cloud and uses a large number of technologies and middle ware. The bulk of backend code is written in Java & functional style (F#) and our system of record is an event sourced system (essentially a log of all actions on the platform). We also mix of different techologies such as Python,Scala and Go. We use a mix of Kafka, Redis, Elastic Search, Azure SQL, Event Store and Azure Storage for our data stores.
