Senior Software Engineer EPOS (18555)

About Engineering at Holland & Barrett

We are investing heavily in technology as the key driving force in delivering great customer experience with personalised wellness journeys both online and in-store, along with convenience in service and delivery,  and with increasing product propositions. 

We are putting our efforts in building the right solutions over buying generic ones, and we embrace automation and testing in all things software, infrastructure and data. We certainly embrace change and drive speed in everything we do. 

At the core of every great technology we build is an obsessive attention to detail that makes our tech fast, simple, resilient, secure, operable, observable and scalable.

Every day presents a different challenge, but is filled with fun, teamwork and passion to succeed and surpass every expectation. We work hard in Holland & Barrett because we love the work we do, we love the people we do it with, we know we can count on each other to deliver and especially because we know the tech we build makes a difference for customers.

Join us and see how far you can go…

The Role

One of the largest parts of the business we are looking to grow and change our technical capability in are our Stores. We are looking at the future of shopping in a post-Covid time and we are moving away from expensive, slow moving third party products to new solutions that are flexible and built in house to meet our needs from day 1.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our Stores team working on our Electronic Point of Sale (aka Till) which we launched across all stores in 2020. Building a till is more complex than it sounds and what you see in store is only a small part of what we do. As well as what a store colleague sees on device, we build services that ensure we have the right data to allow stores to trade (even if they go offline), support other instore devices using our APIs and infrastructure, and add structure and auditability by helping automate manual store processes. We're a full stack development team using Kotlin and Vue.js.

We have to be creative to solve problems we find that a purely microservice based product wouldn't, so we value lateral thinking.

The Person
  • Strong Kotlin or Java service development with some knowledge of the other
  • Some frontend experience with JavaScript
  • Our tills have UIs, but you don't need to be an expert
  • Enjoy mentoring more junior engineers
  • Design and querying of SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Lead the full software development cycle, from design to support
  • Ability to verify solutions across the test pyramid
  • Systematically debug issues and from learnings propose changes
  • Work with stakeholders to convert business requirements into engineering tasks
  • Knowledge of debugging 3rd party APIs and peripheral integration
  • Retail experience, either from working in or creating solutions for stores
