  • Overview

    Love What You Do.

     

    At Room & Board, our Java Web Developers find their work rewarding in the following ways. Is this something you’d love, too?

    • We’re using the latest in technology. If you’ve jumped to the assumption our technology is old and antiquated because we’re a brick and mortar retailer, you’ll be surprised to learn our technology stack is current. We’re doing a lot of fun and exciting things and we’re motivated to pursue new technologies.
    • The code is complex. Our product assortment is vast, diverse and often custom, so there’s a lot of depth and complexity in our business requirements and domain. We’re given the room to solve in a creative way and do the best work we can.
    • Quality is in everything we do. We don’t believe in applying Band-Aids to meet a deadline. Instead we build deadlines based on what it’ll take to do things right. And, we’ll refactor old code to make it better.
    • We’re a peer group of developers who drive technology. We’re not rigid and restricted by hierarchy, rather fairly flat and work together with the technical freedom to determine what makes the best sense.
    • Workspace that inspires. Our creativity is further fueled by our beautiful work environment - filled with natural light and vegetation, well-designed work spaces, an indoor gym, fitness studio and workout facility.

    As a Web Developer, you'll:

    • Collaborate among a team of high-performing professionals (peers, Web Business Analysts, project managers and business customers) as you understand requirements and develop innovative software set in a lightweight agile development process using Room & Board and industry best practices.
    • Maintain and support our mission-critical applications (e.g., company web site) as well as internal and utility applications.
    • Estimate, establish and manage timeframes and dependencies.
    • Utilize widely accepted open source projects like Tomcat, Spring, PostgreSQL, JUnit and Docker.
    • Participate in group improvement activities and initiatives to improve quality and pursue excellence.

    The qualifications & experience you bring:

    • 5+ years of professional web application design and development.
    • Authorization to work in the United States without a Visa Sponsorship.
    • Demonstrated knowledge of and use of Java, Spring and object-oriented analysis and design.
    • Ability to write and optimize SQL and display an understanding of relational databases.
    • Strong problem solving skills and ability to troubleshoot operational issues.
    • Experience with code reviews and performance tuning.
    • Knowledge of DevOps tools and practices.
    • Candidates will need to possess authorization to work in the United States, as it is not the practice of Room & Board to sponsor individuals for work Visas.

    What you'll find:

    • Our collaborative spirit leaves little room for bureaucracy and cumbersome rules. Instead we keep it simple, take accountability, solve problems and ultimately do the right thing.
    • Our compensation, benefits and work space are designed to support the physical, financial and emotional well-being of our staff and their families, including domestic partnerships.
