  • Symbiotic and collaborative work environment where you will be learning and coaching other engineers on the team.
We are looking for:

  • Open to minor Frontend work and technologies. 
  • Experience with e-Commerce/Web Applications
  • Fulfillment or Warehouse technology preferred.
  • Strong communication skills as you will directly be interacting with stakeholders, in this case internal GOAT employees. 
  • Familiar and comfortable with the technologies, the tradeoffs, and the design patterns emerging in web services.
  • A quick learner, a self-starter, able to work autonomously, and you're willing (and able) to handle the pressures of an increasing level of responsibility.
