Περιγραφή Εργασίας

Description

At Skroutz, we have the vision to make everyone’s life better by creating the most trustworthy, trouble-free, and easy to use online discovery and shopping experience. We want to provide this experience not only to our users and partners but also to our team members.

Today we are going through one of the most exciting times for Skroutz. We are rapidly transitioning to a marketplace model, we constantly invest in technology and innovation and we acquired MyJobNow Delivery to enter the last mile market.

If a problem is hard then it is worth solving. It’s our role to isolate the problem from the solution and give users what they actually want, not what they think they want.

We firmly believe that people drive our business forward and we strive daily to build a powerful team that shares the same passion and enthusiasm for eCommerce and technology.

Our engineering values

  • Know your Tech. Develop and master your craft, sharpen your tools. Be proud of your work.
  • Release early & Iterate. Deliver prototypes and start gathering important feedback early on. Use that feedback to guide you. Don’t be afraid to compromise, make sure to come back & tidy things up.
  • Be a team player. Offer your help, listen and seek to understand. Step up & take initiatives.
  • Don’t over anything. Don’t over-engineer, over-analyze, over-regulate, you get it.
  • Enjoy your work. Celebrate success.

Technologies we use

Our main stack is Ruby for the backend – using the Ruby on Rails framework – with Javascript (ES6) and React/Redux for the frontend. Our main storage is a MariaDB cluster. We heavily use Elasticsearch, Kafka, MongoDB, Redis and Memcached. We use Jenkins for our CI and various tools like Sentry, NewRelic and Grafana for monitoring. Generally, we try to pick the best tool we know or we can find that serves our needs. You can read more about what we have worked on our Engineering blog.

How will you contribute to Skroutz vision?

The Core (Kernel) team’s purpose is to keep the Skroutz applications healthy and secure, enhance the codebase with tools, libraries and tweaks that improve performance, increase productivity and ease our engineers’ development experience.

Our work keeps the application in a modern state and affects all engineering teams without blocking the development process. With more than 150 Skroutz engineers, we share our experience and familiarize our people with the gained knowledge via presentations, pair programming and blog posts.

We are looking for Senior Software Engineers with strong technical knowledge and experience in large scale applications. You will be part of a small, talented and motivated team, tackle hard problems and deal with challenges deriving from systems that often serve over 100k requests per minute.

What you will be doing

Performance and Reliability

  • Discover and propose the usage of external libraries that will have a positive impact on our codebase (ex. automatic N+1 query detection) or on our engineers’ productivity
  • Propose and implement features that help engineers effectively gain visibility into lower-level information such as the origin of a slow SQL query
  • Seek optimization opportunities within our application and its interaction with other systems and services

Resilience

  • Help prevent resource exhaustion by implementing solutions like an auto-throttling mechanism for background tasks
  • Ensure application uptime by designing and implementing frameworks such as an automatic external service switching mechanism during an outage

Developer productivity and happiness

  • Save time from engineers with features like allowing database migrations execution in the background
  • Assist debugging by enriching application logs with helpful information
  • Improve code readability and maintainability by introducing code standardizing tools

Application health and security

  • Investigate the implications of upgrading to newer versions of our core technology components
  • Deal with CVEs and security issues raised by our security team
  • Keep our authentication flow and third-party OΑuth integrations up to date with the latest best practices
  • Maintain a software stack that serves millions of requests per day

Requirements

  • At least five years of working experience as a Software Engineer in a professional setting, designing and building high volume, scalable web applications from end to end
  • Solid algorithmic and software engineering background
  • Excellent understanding of web architecture
  • Excellent knowledge of at least one programming language. We work mostly in Ruby, but we believe that languages can be learned; we care much more about your general engineering skills
  • Good knowledge and understanding of SQL and database systems
  • Passion for readable, maintainable, testable, scalable and performant code
  • Ability to navigate around a relatively large existing codebase and cooperatively improve it
  • Experience with a version control system (preferably Git) and a CI workflow
  • Contribution to open-source projects is a huge plus
  • Team spirit and easy-going attitude

Benefits

What’s it like to work at Skroutz?

  • A great opportunity to contribute to the evolution of Skroutz towards becoming a Marketplace
  • Being part of an environment that gives employees large goals, autonomy and mentoring, which creates incredible opportunities, both for you and the company
  • Competitive full-time salary
  • Ongoing training and development
  • Private Medical plan
  • Top of Line tools and equipment
  • Access to books, online courses and relevant resources
  • Flexible remote working
  • Extra paid time off
  • Free Skroutz Plus subscription
