Are you passionate about modern web applications built on React, Redux, and TypeScript within a mono-repo connected to an Apollo GraphQL backend? Do you believe an excellent user experience is as much about the "little" details as it is about the frameworks and libraries you choose? We are creating a new generation of Microsoft commerce experiences. If you love the modern web, have outstanding attention to detail, a passion for creating experiences that delight users, and a strong collaborative spirit, then you are a perfect fit for our team! This is an exciting opportunity to leverage your deep technical skills to create new features alongside a great team, and to influence the product's direction.

Collaboration - As most development is about working with others, both within an immediate team, as well as across business units and portions of the company, an ability to collaborate effectively is a core competency to have.

Customer Focus - A focus on delivering customer value, and being able to directly tie engineering decisions and actions to that value is a huge plus for successful engineers at any level.

Drive For Results - Being able to drive for results, not merely finding the boundary of your responsibility, but following a problem through to its conclusion, to solve it once and for all, is a skill and ability which a successful engineer should exhibit.

Technical Excellence - Core to an accomplished software engineer, this is not merely knowing the latest and greatest language developments, but demonstrating a passion for technology, a curiosity to “go deep,” and an ability to quickly learn and build upon past experiences, to be able to extrapolate from those experiences, and deliver innovations. Technical excellence is rooted in having a strong demonstrable aptitude for problem solving.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate this broad set of attributes well.
