An Insider's view of Nordstromrack.com | HauteLook

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our engineering team is super friendly and loves to collaborate. The leadership truly believes in work/life balance. What I enjoy most about the culture here is the genuine excitement about moving our platform forward into newer technologies so that we can build smarter and scale easier to handle our increasing traffic.

It’s easy to sit down and have an open conversation with anyone here -- whether that's working with retail employees for our omnichannel features or partnering with Engineering on the most optimal technology for such a wide breadth of product. Being able to work with so many different people has been one of the most enjoyable parts of my job!

Natalie

Sr. Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started in Customer Care among 70 other agents, and 4 years later I now work as a Technical Program Manager. With constant annual growth of about 25%, our teams have expanded, Care now has a few hundred agents, and our projects pose exciting opportunities, from new features on the website to fulfillment center and infrastructure upgrades.

McKenna

Technical Program Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We strive to be humble, allowing engineering teams to challenge ideas and solve issues from the bottom up rather than the top down. We create a space where the engineers feel enabled to be creative and contribute freely. We always make sure that engineers have a chance to take lead, be creative, and drive solutions.

David

Director of Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

Working with teams across the organization to help solve our scalability challenges. With demand continually increasing, it's an exciting challenge to improve our APIs, provide an excellent and seamless checkout experience, and put products in the hands of our customers as fast as technology allows. Behind every line of code lies a happy customer.
