An Insider's view of Nordstrom

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our engineering team is super friendly and loves to collaborate. The leadership truly believes in work/life balance. What I enjoy most about the culture here is the genuine excitement about moving our platform forward into newer technologies so that we can build smarter and scale easier to handle our increasing traffic.


Sr. Software Engineer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

One challenge we face is scalability. My team is responsible for getting customer orders to the correct warehouse and pushing current inventory quantities to the site. Especially during the holidays, we need to move a lot of data quickly so that customers have a Nordstrom-quality experience after checkout.


Software Engineer 2

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started in Customer Care among 70 other agents, and 4 years later I now work as a Technical Program Manager. With constant annual growth of about 25%, our teams have expanded, Care now has a few hundred agents, and our projects pose exciting opportunities, from new features on the website to fulfillment center and infrastructure upgrades.
