We're building the infrastructure for global commerce. Our create solutions that range from e-commerce to physical store solutions, but also extend to financial services and even tools to empower partner and client's devs. Among our biggest technical challenges:

- Build services and workflows that are adaptable enough to fit our current and future enterprise demands
- Evolve and scale our infrastructure to keep up with our 50% YOY growth
- Deliver our engineering expertise through our serverless development platform


Our team is built by bringing together bright and inquisitive engineers and a lot of tough problems. We've seen this setting fostering ownership, allowing engineers to deeply understand and have the initiative to solve our daily challenges.

Our stack consists mostly of .NET for CPU-bound applications, Node.js + Typescript for IO-bound services and a pinch of Golang here and there. On the frontend, we leverage React stuffed with Typescript and served with GraphQL on the side.

As an engineer who builds our frontend systems, you'll get to:
- Design and build our core store components with a mobile-first approach - if you're interested to take a look at our design system
- Define and implement standards and frameworks that bootstrap thousands of VTEX partner agencies
- Profile and optimize our components performance focusing on improving UX

As an engineer who builds our backends systems, you'll get to:
- Evolve large-scale and resilient microservices with 24/7 uptime
- Design and build low-latency and highly available APIs

As an engineer who takes care of the health and reliability of our platform, you'll get to:
- Build operational tooling, automate workflows, improve and monitor infrastructureImprove the observability and traceability of all our services
- Write, review and ship software to improve the availability, scalability, latency, and efficiency of our services
- Engage in service capacity planning, software performance analysis, and system tuning
Depending on your role, you might perform any non-empty combination of these tasks. We also expect and encourage every engineer to join our tech discussions, elaborate processes and build tools that raise the bar of our engineering practices and to take part in the hiring and onboarding of new team members.
