Kmart is in the process of showcasing our product offering on the world stage. To do this we are building a new platform for Kmart Online to take Kmart into the future on a global scale.
You’ll be joining a dynamic team with a fantastic culture where diversity is openly celebrated, and you’ll be challenged and supported to achieve personal and business goals. Expect a work environment that is highly collaborative, fast-paced, inclusive and progressive - with no two days the same!
What we’re looking for?
To assist Kmart on this journey, we are looking for a Senior Engineer, to be based either in Melbourne CBD or our Head Office in Mulgrave, with our Online team, where you will be responsible for the technical design and development of the Kmart Online Platform by providing technical direction and leadership to establish a modern, purpose-built productive agile delivery system and technical practices.
As this is a learning environment, no idea is a bad idea as long as the business objective(s) are front of mind. Everything you design and build will be in AWS, microservice or server-less based and mostly TypeScript running on NodeJS fronted by modern REST and GraphQL APIs on the server side complimented by single page applications on the frontend. Albeit you also understand that other languages and frameworks will be more suitable for some situations. We are event driven and you’ll find a need for NoSQL, relational and graph based persistence. We release as we go and expect that we will have iterated toward a platform that provides significant value within 12 months.
Specifically, you will have experience with and prefer the following modern technologies and architectures:
- AWS is your preferred infrastructure provider;
- You prefer to automate everything and are well versed with a number of infrastructure-as-code technologies;
- Experience with event streaming based architectures and technologies; and
- Use of open-source libraries and frameworks
- Development opportunities across Kmart and the Wesfarmers Group
- Excellent remuneration, a generous bonus scheme and access to the Wesfarmers share plan

- Support of flexible working
- Casual dress
