How do you make our customers happy?

Bol.com is changing retail to make daily life simpler for 13 million customers. A mission we take on with 46,000 partners that enrich our retail tech platform with great propositions. Combined, we offer 33 million articles. It stands to reason that we want to inspire customers along their entire journey, including the checkout process. Autoplaying Hotel California would be a firm no. Here’s what we do want: a checkout process that’s 1% more user-friendly than humanly possible. 😉 And so, we rethink and redesign our checkout process on a daily basis.

Your responsibilities as Front-end Engineer Optimal Checkout Experience

  • Become and stay aware of what our end users expect and want
  • Help design and build the checkout of the future, functionally and technically
  • Deliver high-performance code that noticeably improves the shopping experience for millions of users
  • Improve the performance and scalability of the checkout process

As Front-end Software Engineer Checkout, you are a valued member of the Optimal Checkout Experience team that strives to make our customers’ lives just that little bit easier. The checkout experience is one of the last steps in the customer journey and a crucial one to get right. Firstly, because it will improve our bottom line – we hate the sight of abandoned shopping carts piling up. Also, and more importantly, for the sake of our customers, because fluid processes prevent unnecessary frustration. As a member of the feature team, you’ll be working on the front-end code, mainly written in React. You co-create the checkout experience with other front-end engineers, both from the Checkout product team and the bol.com shop. As for the setting: the team is very diverse in terms of age, experience and cultural backgrounds. But we all share a passion for creating the ultimate basket and checkout experience for our customers. You’ll use a new architecture and modern languages/tooling to realize a series of small features that will go live in rapid succession. Individually, they’ll make every checkout experience better than the previous one. Together, they’ll add up to an amazing improvement.

3 reasons why this is(n’t) for you

  • Yes, if you know React, TypeScript, JavaScript, HTML/CSS and have experience with microservices, scalable setups, APIs and message-driven applications
  • Yes, if you bring multidisciplinary agile team experience to the table
  • Yes, if you exude seniority when it comes to coding, but are a toddler at heart
  • No, if leading by example is a new phrase to you and sounds kinda sketchy
  • No, if you aren’t into CI/CD and Kotlin and Java don’t feature on your bucket list
  • No, if you are inflexible on both a personal level (culturally sensitive you are not) and when it comes to work: coding and testing?!

Where you’ll work

At the premier online retail tech platform in the Netherlands and Belgium. A platform where 13 million Dutch and Belgian customers can choose from over 33 million articles. A platform that helps roughly 46,000 commercial partners run their businesses. And a platform that will never be ‘finished’, because bol.com has been reinventing retail since 1999 and always will be. If there’s a better way to do something, we’re working on it! Together with our customers, partners, and over 2,400 colleagues. Bol.com offers an IT-driven work environment, where cross-functional teams are the norm, and maximizing customer value is the shared ambition. The setting is pioneering, and autonomy is encouraged. Teams deploy code to the production environment themselves, and we embrace experimentation and new technologies. As for the atmosphere? Exuberantly scale-up!!

Bol.com, de winkel van ons allemaal (the store of us all). This is the story we work on every day. It is our belief, that this will grow even stronger when many different people add their uniqueness to our story. We invite you to share your story with us. Because when you bring different people together, the most beautiful things will arise.
