As a senior full stack developer at Inventory Planner, you will be working on a variety of projects from eCommerce integrations and data ingestion to metrics processing and user-facing features.
The way we work
You are free to work from anywhere and choose your own hours. Our team is located in Europe and the US. We expect you to be self-motivated and self-directed, a strong individual contributor and true "manager of one". Almost all of our communication happens in writing and while we do sometimes pair program, what we don't do is "meetings". It is important that you are a good writer and effective communicator.
The stack you’ll use
All of our code lives in a mono repo and all of our backend code is written in PHP. MongoDB is our main database and our frontend is a single-page application written in VueJS. You should feel comfortable exploring and learning new technologies and languages.
The work to be done
We have interesting engineering challenges and exciting plans for the future of the product, much of which revolves around processing and finding insights in large data sets.
Here are some examples of the type of problems you would work on:
- Rewrite our Amazon integration from scratch
- Investigate metric discrepancies reported by customers and fix them at the root cause
- Work on making customer segmentation 10,000x faster
- Investigate and fix a race condition in the code
- Implement a new user-facing product feature
- Develop tooling to surface business insights across many terabytes of data
