Showpo is looking for a Technology Lead for one of our squads. 

Your squad is made up of Engineers, QA’s, PO, and Mobile Engineers. In this role the engineers will report to you, but you will also be leading your team’s technical solutions and direction. To do this you will need to know how to work closely with your teammates, making sure everything is technically coordinated amongst all disciplines.

This is a hands-on role, you will be helping create features from the cradle to grave, you will need to ship quality code, keep control on technical debt, and ensure coding standards are continuously improved across the team. Most importantly though, you believe in quality over speed, and mvp over feature rich deliveries, putting the customer experience first. Always.

The Role:

  • Let’s fast forward to your 1 year anniversary! By 2022, these are some of the things you will have achieved. Don’t worry, you aren't alone, you have the support of your peers, manager and your team to make sure you get there.
  • You have successfully designed, developed, and released features that are high quality, scalable, and performant solutions
  • Features are monitorable, measurable, and toggleable
  • Features are not gold plated, you have iterated where needed and pushed back where not
  • You have introduced and optimised processes to help keep the team working in the best way possible
  • Your team is producing great code, bugs are being caught early, and pull request are delivering value
  • You support the growth of your team, you can see the guys growing, as well as potentially who your successor would be, 
  • Everyone in your team takes responsibility, issues are shared, and lessons are learnt
  • To hit the ground running you will need you to have:

  • Demonstrable tech leadership experience, especially for the people you mentor
  • Strong experience in modern engineering practices and disciplines.
  • Ability to stay calm in challenging circumstances and work through problems methodically.
  • Ability to question decisions and challenge the status quo.
  • Be details oriented, little things matter
  • eCommerce experience
  • Keen desire to do what’s right, not what's easiest
  • We need these technical skills:

  • Strong Node.js, jQuery, and Javascript skills
  • SOLID experience in API driven development, we develop based on “Experience, Process, and System API architecture design”.
  • Microservice architecture when to use, when not to use
  • Developing robust REST APIs
  • Experience with databases ideally MySql, but any db is fine
  • AWS Cloudwatch, Lambda, EC2
  • It would be nice if you had:

  • Experience with Salesforce Commerce Cloud (Demandware)
  • Experience with messaging services like SQS, SNS, or Kafka
  • React experience
  • PHP Experience, magento is an advantage
  • CI/CD experience
  • eCommerce experience, you’ll be mostly focused on product related flows.
  • Perks!

  • 50% staff discount & 30% off Brands
  • Fortnightly pay
  • Opportunity to be part of our rapid expansion
  • Working with a fast dynamic  team – gaining massive exposure to a fast fashion ecommerce business
  • Personal growth and learning opportunities
  • Work closely with award winning people in an award winning business
  • Sound like the role for you? We'd love to hear from you!
