About StockX

Job Description

Our Technology Team is on a mission to build the next generation e-commerce platform for the next generation customer. We build world-class, innovative experiences and products that give our users access to the world’s most-coveted products and unlock economic opportunity by turning reselling into a business for anyone. Our team uses cutting edge technologies that handle massive scale globally. We’re an internet-native, cloud-native company from day 1 - you won’t find legacy technology here. If you’re a curious leader who loves solving problems, wearing multiple hats, and learning new things, join us!

Were looking for Senior Software Engineers to join some of our core teams which include:

Warehouse Management Systems and Logistics:

The Warehouse Team is responsible for the software systems that power the StockX global logistics, supply chain, inventory, and warehousing network. We build scalable and resilient microservices and tooling that enable our operations team members to process orders and drive customer delight. We utilize cutting edge tools and platforms such as Node.js, Kafka, Docker, Kubernetes, and AWS to handle our massive growth.

Core Developer Platform:

We're looking for an eager Backend Engineer to take full ownership over our popular promotions (including ReStockX, IPO, Charity, Black Friday and more) and rethink how we start, stop and manage them. We are also looking for ownership over our discount code management tool. High visibility greenfield opportunities with the end goal being automating the process out of Engineering.

Money Team:

Every cent of money that StockX touches runs through the Money Team.  Our services are responsible for billions of dollars a year, in currencies across the world, and a growing list of payment methods to bring our customers the best experience for their needs.  If our services are down, the sellers on our platform are not getting paid, and that impacts real people’s lives.  It is our mission to build the highest quality systems, at massive scale, with better uptime than our vendors.  Some of the most challenging technical problems at StockX are being solved today on the Money Team.


  • Research and implement cutting edge technology that can be applied to handle massive scale
  • Take responsibility for the performance and uptime of the services owned by the team by collecting metrics, participating in on-call rotations, monitoring production systems, debugging issues as they come up, and responding with a sense of urgency

  • Work effectively in an agile development process
  • Take product requirements and transform them into technical tasks
  • Mentor other software engineers to help bolster overall team competency
  • Participate and/or conduct in agile ceremonies


  • 5-10+ years of relevant experience
  • Strong experience with one or more back-end languages used by the team (Typescript, Javascript, Node.js, PHP) or equivalent experience in another language and a willingness to learn and get up to speed quickly
  • Strong professional experience and understanding of data storage, relational (particularly Postgres) and non-relational (particularly Redis and DynamoDB)
  • Experience in service oriented and/or microservice architectures
  • Experience with event-based architectures and an understanding of how to successfully use them with Kafka, SNS, SQS, or other related services
  • Experience working with AWS or other cloud providers (e.g. Azure, Google Cloud Platform, etc.)
  • You have built highly resilient and scalable REST-based services
  • You are product focused and collaborate to find the best possible solutions
  • Experience with testing strategies and an understanding of when to use each
