Everything we do at DICK’S Sporting Goods centers around our customers, or as we call them, our athletes. From online to in-store, we’re disrupting retail through technology.
Members of our Software Engineering team are key disruptors. As a Principal Software Engineer, you are an expert of your craft. You are a natural leader. The idea of disrupting an industry with technologies you help create is invigorating.
We empower our engineers to tear down the silos and work collaboratively with their product team to deliver solutions. We work in nimble product teams composed of engineers, designers, and product managers that aren’t bogged down by project plans and politics, but are empowered to continuously create, test and execute. One of the best parts is after the work is done, you get to see the results of your work in our stores, online and throughout our business. You get to make a difference.
Our teammates know that there is an athlete behind every in-store and eCommerce transaction. We go beyond the expected to build technology that makes the DICK’S Sporting Goods’ experience innovative and hassle-free.
COMMITTED TO INCLUSION & DIVERSITY.
We actively seek to create an inclusive and diverse workforce, reflecting the communities we serve. Doing so strengthens our ability to serve all our athletes and drive innovation and growth.
HAVE A PASSION FOR SPORTS.
We believe that sports make people better and we’re determined to be the best sports company in the world. Whether you’re an athlete or sports enthusiast, we bring our passion for the game into everything we do.
GET BETTER EVERY DAY.
The journey is never over. We know that to be the best, we must get a little better each day. We focus on delivering 1% more in everything we do.
What we’re looking for
First, let’s talk Tech.
The Consumer Mobile team leverages native mobile technology to maximize the satisfaction and delight of our athletes while providing them the value they need in an efficient and high-impact manner. Here are the latest technologies we use to build high-quality apps for our athletes. Don’t worry – you don’t have to be a master at all of them, but at this senior Principal level we’ll expect you to have experience with more than a few of them:
iOS: Swift 5+, SwiftUI, Combine, GCD, Notification Center, CoreData, Swiftlint, XCTest
General: MVVM architecture, Reactive programming, Test-Driven Development, JSON API integration
As a Principal Software Engineer at DICK’S you will:
Bring at least 7 to 10 years of experience to the table
Build and ship high-quality code at a rapid pace
Work collaboratively with designers, product managers, and other peer engineers
Continuously mentor and develop your fellow Software Engineers, sharing your expertise and lessons learned
Work with the latest platform tools and best practices to deliver new technology solutions
Participate in design activities to improve user experience and athlete satisfaction
Spend about 20% of your time coding so you can maintain and sharpen your technical skills
Identify and communicate technology problems and propose secure, reliable solutions
Work with great people at our sprawling Pittsburgh campus that includes sports leagues, a world-class health club, and a dynamic culture
We believe that there is always a better way.
So, we will expect you to:
Follow best practices for high quality architecture and code and encourage the same within your team
Take the initiative to help drive new ideas and features
Review and discuss code with engineering peers and leaders to understand best practices and optimal design patterns
Deliver complex tasks to production, working independently when required
Understand the business context of the larger domain and potentially other domain areas
Advocate and evangelize mobile technologies and solutions within and outside the wider organization
Continuously increase your awareness of modern software design and development core practices utilizing articles, MeetUps, conferences, tech talks, etc.
Support and mentor seasoned technologists both in a structured manner and ad-hoc
Lastly, here’s some stuff that won’t be part of your day-to-day.
At DICK’S you won’t:
Work in a silo
Be limited by project plans
Find yourself stuck in a boring cube
Pay to park or be stuck in a corporate high-rise
Be pigeonholed into proprietary and stagnant codebases
If you’re excited about joining the DSG team, we’d love to meet you.
