To sum it up...

Commerce at scale. Java, JavaScript and Scala. Brought together with TDD, XP and Clean Code.

Role overview

We enable commerce at scale, and have massive customer impact. Whilst doing all this, we are on a mission to globally improve company technology, drive agile adoption and demonstrate customer-centric development.

Role

Day to day, we write code in Java, Scala or JavaScript. However, as someone who is passionate about Engineering, you will be:

  • Open to picking up new languages and frameworks when the situation arises.
  • Open to work with people who care about well written, test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences
  • Love automatically tested, zero-touch deployed applications.

The team works very closely, and like to pair program on pretty much everything. Developers write their own tests, whilst learning from test engineers embedded in the team. EPD developers learn from each other.

For example, our Java specialists learn from our Javascript experts, and vice-versa. Having a desire to expand and master something new means you're a good fit for us. Our developers decide on the right tool for the job, so you should be comfortable in doing the same. We have a lot of fun discussing the merits of different technology and want people who can lead these conversations.

With two product development teams based in London and Berlin. We enable commerce at scale, and have massive customer impact. Whilst doing all this, we are on a mission to globally improve company technology, drive agile adoption and demonstrate customer-centric development. The Seller Experience group is responsible for improving the lives of our 25 million sellers worldwide. To do this, we improve existing experiences and build new products to make it easier, and quicker to sell, no matter how big or small the seller is, or where in the world they are based.

We are continually striving for the highest quality, and work in small focused teams following bits of Scrum, Kanban, with a healthy dose of Extreme Programming. Working here is a rewarding, challenging and inspiring experience.

London can be considered as a center for professional relocation. Furthermore, there are over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies' headquarters in London.

The city is famous for unpredictable weather. For instance, it could be cold, warm and rainy in one day and it’s often the topic of conversation across the city.
