Blue Nile is seeking a Senior Software Engineer to help drive full-stack development and technical innovation for our Diamond Information Systems team. This team primarily focuses on Java/Groovy REST web services, data ingestion and processing, internal tools, and extranet systems that are the digital foundation of the Blue Nile diamond supply chain, but we do a little of everything. Some days we'll be building cutting-edge web services, other days we'll be focusing on front-end web development. Sometimes we'll bug-fix legacy code (every place has some), other times we'll handle whatever random requests come from the rest of the business. We are domain experts, technical experts, and thought leaders. No matter what we're doing, we push for continual improvement, aim to be a good example for the rest of the company to follow, and drive the business forward through the proactive and intelligent use of technology.

Sourcing and pricing diamonds efficiently is a challenging problem. They come from all over the world, they are each unique, and they're described by dozens of measurements that each affect their quality. Add in constantly fluctuating exchange rates, customer demand, competitor pricing, and a myriad of other factors, and choosing the optimal price becomes a complex, data-driven, dynamic process. Does this sound like an interesting problem to you? It sure does to us, which is why we're building Diamond Information Systems, a small, nimble, new engineering team to tackle it head on.

Do you have the skills, experience, and most importantly, ideas that we need? Are you the sort of person that brings new ideas to the table every day, mentors and learns from other engineers, and makes a positive impact to everything around them? Do you love delivering features that make the experience better for both customers and future engineers? Do you firmly believe in the value of automating everything, including testing, building, deployment, and business processes? Excellent communication skills, strong Java experience, and a desire to be part of, and help guide, a tightly integrated Scrum team are all required. You will also need to become a subject matter expert in diamonds and the diamond supply chain (no prior experience necessary). Experience with Spring Boot, SQL, MongoDB, Docker, Kubernetes, Groovy, JavaScript, TypeScript, React, JQuery, CSS, and SASS are all a plus.

Blue Nile is the largest online retailer of certified diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry. We embrace a culture of adaptability. Our team is nimble, innovative and resourceful and makes an impact on both the business and each individual customer’s personal experience. We value hard-work, flexibility and curiosity and collaborate to creatively solve problems, constantly improve and implement meaningful changes. Our team celebrates achievements and is inspired by success.
