Software Engineer – Platform


RevolutionParts is looking for a talented engineer to help evolve our technology to support our next phase of growth. You’ll be joining a team of professionals that are dedicated to providing cutting edge e-commerce solutions to the auto parts industry.

If you want a clear-cut role with the same tasks for years, this is not for you. If you like to think big and work on a variety of projects, we need you! Here’s a sample of project descriptions:

– We have 50 million parts in a DB. Create a technology stack that can support real-time dynamic search of these parts (Google style) — think "2010 accord water pump".

Keywords: ElasticSearch, node.js, parallel processing

– We have a history of 700,000+ orders. Create a recommendation engine that will suggest other parts along with what a buyer already has in their cart. Oh — and the recommended part has to fit the same car. Return the result in 100 ms or less.

Keywords: We’re not sure, research technologies that might help accomplish this.

– Create a clean public REST API for parts dealers to import orders that they get from sources other than our stores.

Keywords: Authentication, JSON, Good API design.

– Create an internal shopping cart service that can manage millions of carts a month.

Keywords: memcached/redis, NoSQL, scaling, availability

– We need to spin up 50 servers on AWS to crunch some numbers every month. Let’s automate that.

– Bachelor and/or Masters in Computer Science or Computer Engineering
– You have some experience – but most of all you are hungry for new challenges
– A solid understanding of OO design and all Computer Science fundamentals
– Must like the dynamic and fast-paced nature of a smaller team working in a company doubling in size each year
– GSD – Get Stuff Done

– Design of APIs (internal or external)
– Design of high-availability-self-healing systems
– Design of scalable systems
– Understanding of databases, relational or not. SQL.
– Architecture decision making – real-time, batch, queue-based processing?
– Scripting Languages (We do a lot of coding in PHP)

– Top Salary, Stock Options, and Relocation Assistance
– Retirement Plan
– Medical and Dental Insurance
– Flexible Hours
– Casual Dress Code
– Free lunch Friday
