  • Ability to join and participate in multiple internal interest groups in trending topics like DevOps, Continuous Delivery and Big Data.
  • Continuous Integration through multiple environments to get rapid feedback about your work.

What we expect from you - previous experience with:-

  • Java development

  • Building RESTful services (JSON)
  • Automated builds with continuous integration

  • Affinity for e-Commerce

  • Passion for continuous improvement and building a world-class engineering team

Desirable experience:

Who are we looking for:

We expect the right person to be an expert in software engineering and have good knowledge of what it means to work with large/distributed systems.
