At and HauteLook, we strive to empower shoppers through choice and discovery of the hottest fashion at great prices.  At the intersection of technology, fashion and design, we value employees who have great in- “sites” to fashion and e-commerce, act fast, think creatively and embody our customer-first mentality. Our fast-paced, dynamic culture attracts creative, passionate individuals with a determined, can-do attitude and entrepreneurial spirit. Work hard and play hard in a fun, casual and collaborative work environment in the heart of Downtown LA. 


As a Senior Software Engineer on the Order Management team, you will be responsible for building the systems and processes to handle the checkout processes of Nordstrom Rack & HauteLook. This team handles transactions totaling over a $1 billion each year. Handling that volume of transactions comes with a unique set of challenges, from handling different payments (credit cards, Apple Pay, PayPal) to addressing the ongoing threat of fraud.

Engineers on the Order Management team will be expected to tackle backend programming tasks as well as possibly working on some minor front end enhancements for our internal tools. We view the software we build as a meld of user and machine. Our primary efforts for the next year will be migrating our legacy PHP codebase to a Scala platform, while still satisfying the product needs of the business. As in any large operation, there will be a smattering of other languages and tools you will be expected to learn and use.

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.
