What if you discovered a company that dominates the products in their category – 1 out of 3 being sold by them? Is the undisputed market leader in their industry, by a wide margin, organically capturing 90% of their customers, and taking care of them with one of the highest customer service scores in retail?  AND what if they are operating in a formidable stable industry that is never, ever going away? At David’s Bridal, we empower our customers and our team members to stay true to their dreams and find the one, whether that means the wedding dress that matches her personal style—or the corporate career that’s a perfect fit.

The Software Engineer will take direction from the Development Lead for the project and partner closely with enterprise and technical architects and other team members to ensure that you understand and have internalized the high-level design of the proposed solution.  The Software Engineer will then execute work with speed and quality and support the team to timely resolve complex issues to help maximize the productivity of the team. Finally, the Software Engineer will surface and help resolve any issues that stand in the way of continuous productivity.

  • Help to ensure quality, velocity, and adherence to architectural designs and the software engineering standards of the company through code reviews, unit testing, and the peer review process. This is to include documentation of design, development, integration/test and deployment activities and working to resolve technical issues on a timely basis. This will also include evaluating risk potential and recommending solutions to mitigate those risks.
  • Provide support and maintenance for complicated incidents and integrated solutions and can troubleshoot moderately complex problems independently. Surface issues on the project that impede the progress of the team – solving those issues that are within your control and driving other team members (such as the program manager, product owner, enterprise architect or QA lead) to solve any remaining issues.
  • Coordinate with other David’s Bridal agile development teams and/or external technology providers to ensure the delivery of their work product meets the functional and quality requirements of the team.
  • Help foster an environment of mutual respect, accountability and excellence, and work with other team members to resolve conflicts within the team in a speedy, productive, and professional manner to ensure a high functioning and cohesive team.
  • Contribute to projects as a team member and lead smaller projects within the development cycle; participate in all aspects of the agile process and work with the development team, product owner, and business liaison and leverage your software engineering experience to provide guidance and input throughout the process.
