Position

This is a hands-on role that requires both strategic thinking and execution, and will take our digital experiences to a new level of excellence. You will ensure the readiness of our backend related projects and initiatives.

Your primary focus will be the development of all server-side logic and the definition and maintenance of our code.

You will also be responsible for integrating the front-end elements built by your colleagues into the application so a basic understanding of front-end technologies is necessary.

Your playground will consist of an AWS environment (elastic compute cloud and lambda) with Adobe Experience Manager as the CMS and Commercetools as the e-commerce engine.

You will join forces with our IT team and will work closely with suppliers, product owners, a QA team, IT ecommerce specialist, solution architect and front-end developers following an Agile/Scrum methodology.
