Sr. Software Engineer



Software Engineering
Chicago, IL, USA
Posted on Friday, December 22, 2023
In 2016, we founded Provi as an innovative ordering solution, aimed to disrupt the 240-billion dollar alcohol industry with a product that would move beyond the constant chaos: the texts, paper stacks, missed phone calls and lost communication that has dominated the purchasing workflow between buyers and distributors for decades.
Today, Provi is better than ever. We’ve created a best-in-class ordering solution that better connects beverage alcohol professionals across 35 states and growing, with more than 750,000 product listings that make up the most expansive and trusted database of U.S. distributor portfolios.

What you'll be doing

  • Help build out new scalable services and systems for Product Catalog and Inventory, Pricing, Distributor and Order Integration Automation, Order Flow, Payment Systems and others
  • Engage with principal engineers and product management team to understand functional challenges, prototype new ideas, and build innovative solutions
  • Assess the impacts on designs and production code based on changes in functional requirements and present those findings to stakeholders, peers and management
  • Gain knowledge and control of integration endpoints (Data Integrations, Order Processing, Pricing systems, etc)
  • Participate in all phases of Agile methodology (planning, grooming, daily standups, retros)
  • Work closely with other developers on your team and collaborate effectively with other teams to deliver features that span teams. Focus on the benefit to the customer, not which team owns a component.

What we are looking for

  • 5+ years of experience building scalable backend services in a modern programming language (eg Java, Ruby on Rails)
  • Experience with Service Oriented Architecture and building REST APIs for scalable web services. GraphQL knowledge and experience is a plus.
  • Understanding of key components of scalable web services architecture including containers, load balancing and distributed caches. Experience breaking up monoliths into more scalable SOA solutions is a big plus.
  • Experience with data modeling and working with SQL and NoSQL database technologies (eg Postgres, DynamoDB)
  • Experience building and deploying services on AWS
  • Experience with the full software development lifecycle including design, test and continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) systems
  • Experience working with frontend developers to integrate with backend APIs and address scale and performance issues in production environments
