Job Description

Discover It Here

At Nordstromrack.com and HauteLook, we strive to empower shoppers through choice and discovery of the hottest fashion at great prices. At the intersection of technology, fashion and design, we value employees who have great in-"sites" to fashion and e-commerce, act fast, think creatively and embody our customer-first mentality. Our fast-paced, dynamic culture attracts creative, passionate individuals with a determined, can-do attitude and entrepreneurial spirit.

Work hard and play hard in a fun, casual and collaborative work environment in the heart of Downtown LA.
Who we are:
Are you ready to help build and expand a rapidly growing business within the Nordstrom family? Do you enjoy working on complex routing, shortest path and optimization problems? Are you looking for a team of high performers to help expand your skills and experience?

We are the Enterprise Apps team. With responsibility over building and supporting various enterprise applications including Order Management, Customer Order Routing, Distributed Fulfillment, Shipping, Warehouse Management, Accounts Payable, Purchase Orders and Inventory Control, we are a significant part of Nordstromrack.com & HauteLook's customer experience. We build out new features and experiences on the Microsoft .NET technology stack that directly affect our ability to provide the best in class customer experience. We are looking to expand our team to improve the quality of all key applications and systems that will allow us to continue our rapid growth. We operate in a fast-paced environment using agile methodology and lightweight SOA design patterns. We encourage innovation and expect software engineers to take a high level of ownership throughout the software life cycle.
Here's who we're looking for:
You're the type of person who thrives on taking care of things the right way the first time. You excel at testing software early and often in the software development life-cycle. You can rapidly review requirements for development, extrapolate a test plan, and build an automation test suite to reduce the time required for manual testing, decrease defects while improving overall quality. When you say "I'll take care of it" we know it'll be done well. You love working on Microsoft technologies & frameworks like SQL Server, ASP.NET MVC, WCF, Entity Framework and ASP.NET Web API but you get excited when you hear a hallway conversation about Robot Framework, Iron Python, Elastic Search, Docker or Redis. You are passionate about code quality and can passionately explain the difference between Behavior Driven Development and Test Driven Development to a junior developer. You have a strong desire to automate everything. You hate hearing the words "It has always been done this way" and are curious about why things are done the way they are today. You like contributing to open source projects and believe that reading other people's code widens your perspective and skillset. You have your stylistic preferences when it comes to code but understand the discipline it takes to keep the source code maintainable. You love troubleshooting issues and know what it takes to get that code to Production if the Zombie apocalypse hits and the rest of the team is unavailable.
If you were working for us, here are some of the things you would have done last week:

Test the newly built APIs required for Customer Orders and Shipping.
Review software design to generate test approach and identification of automation points.
Created Behavior Driven Tests using Specflow for Customer Orders API.
Identify Test Cases and ensure that all the required details are captured in the Test Case Management System.
Identify the test cases for automation based on importance to determining level of confidence.
Provided QA level of effort during sprint planning for testing the new Order Management System.
Lead the QA effort at the fulfillment center alongside operations to ensure all is working as expected in production.
Worked with the Shipping Carrier Tech Support to resolve the issue with the transmission of end of day manifest files.
Provided signoff for production deployments using the level of confidence metric obtained during Test Case Execution.
Attended the storyboarding session for the new Invoicing workflow that will speed up the Accounts Payable process.
Provided test workflow and knowledge transfer to QA peers for the new Invoicing workflow.
Helped the new developers get setup with their Behavior Driven Tests.
Worked with the DevOps and Platform team to troubleshoot the issue of missing log data in the ElasticSearch cluster.
Updated hours spent working on various cards in JIRA and closed out your cards for the sprint.
Provided the quality update for final release candidate testing, during the current sprint to stakeholders based on the metrics from the test execution report in TFS.
Conducted a brown bag session for the team on writing acceptance tests in Gherkin and automating test cases using the Robot Framework .
Visited the Fulfillment Center for a Technical Design session with the WMS Analysts.Here are some other things you might do:

Handle any bugs escalated by Service Desk and Tier 2 support.
Travel to Nordstrom HQ at Seattle and/or other Fulfillment Center locations for requirements definition and technical design sessions.
Provide on-call support and utilize Pager Duty for creating and updating support schedules.
Fill in on some basic support tasks if the team is shorthanded.
Experience is important. We're looking for someone who's worked with Microsoft Technologies in the roles of Senior Software Engineer, Technical Lead or Solution Architect in a solution focused fast paced team. You should consider yourself a pro - this is not a job for first timers or interns.

We are an equal opportunity employer committed to providing a diverse environment.
