Our flagship site, Soccer.com has been architected to have IBM DX, a premiere content management platform sit out in front of our eCommerce platform and consume web services in order to present a highly experiential and customizable user interface. This front-end platform currently leverages Angular.js and Foundation, but we are in the process of migrating to Vue.js for performance purposes. This is a responsive website with leading-edge personalization capabilities that gives our business users a lot of flexibility and has been designed in a mobile-first approach.
The development team currently consists of four Websphere Commerce developers that support all of the web service endpoints and configurations as well as two front-end developers that support our IBM DX platform. The team is augmented heavily with outside contractors who provide support for the application. Our DX Architect will mentor the front-end team on all IBM DX/WCM capabilities and platform functions, so the expectation is that this Senior Front End Web Developer position would provide expert-level knowledge of all front end technologies listed below. We also have a fully-staffed QA team and we operate in a an Agile Scrum environment with the goal of moving as close as possible to a fully continuous delivery model using pure Agile at the heart of everything we do.
