Work schedule
Rohanské nábř. 29, 186 00 Praha 8-Karlín, Česko

At ShipMonk, we specialize in logistics services and order fulfillment for small to medium e-shops in the USA. Our modern platform is built by our Research & Development team based in Prague, which processes up to 100,000 orders per day during peak season. With a book of business of over 1,500 clients, we offer an end-to-end solution that covers everything from stocking items to shipping packages worldwide.  

Currently, we're looking for a skilled Java Developer to join our R&D Team in Prague. This is an exciting opportunity to work on our latest project, MonkProtect, which lets customers guarantee the safe delivery of their online orders by paying a small additional fee during checkout. With MonkProtect's Automated Claims Portal, customers can quickly and easily resolve any issues if their order becomes lost, damaged, or stolen.

As a Java Developer at ShipMonk, you'll work with a modern tech stack that includes: Java 17+, Spring ecosystem, Docker, Kubernetes (AWS EKS), Hibernate, PostgreSQL, REST APIs, Very high bar for quality

You'll join one of our specialized teams:

  • Warehouse: optimize and automate warehouse processes
  • Internals: refactor legacy code, reduce tech debt, and remove outdated code
  • Customer Features: develop functions for our existing web environment
  • Frontend: build TypeScript clients in React and conduct end-to-end testing
  • Data Science: work on AI, data warehousing, data governance, prediction and optimization, and business intelligence
  • QA: ensure acceptance criteria testing is met
  • DevOps: manage infrastructure, Kubernetes, CI/CD processes, and Cloud platform management
  • Technical Product Managers: handle Asana & project management

What does it look like here and what are we proud of?

  • The main backend application provides a REST-like API for several types of clients (web, autonomous robots, ios picker devices, microcomputer packers, automatic conveyors, and more).
  • We have a monorepo for easier CI checks, code sharing, etc.
  • We have all services completely dockerized for local development. We deploy builds to a hosted Kubernetes cluster in AWS with a single click in the Argo CD several times a day.
  • With a single click in the CI, each MR can be deployed on a separate dev cluster for E2E and manual testing, so we don't have to compete with a single shared test environment.
  • We have a strict static-analysis setup with a lot of checks in GitLab CI (Checkstyle, SpotBugs, ErrorProne, NullAway, other linters, security scans, renovate-bot).
  • In addition to the static analysis, we also do two-round code reviews and the functionality is verified by the QA team and E2E Cypress tests.
  • We have 8k+ database integration tests with the thoughtful creation of independent datasets for each test - so no shared data that constantly breaks.
  • We automate the agreed-upon coding rules, to let the machines do the boring parts.
  • We consider concurrency and design the application to withstand race conditions, which is not uncommon in warehousing systems.
  • We’re using DataDog, Sentry, and Opsgenie for observability, monitoring, and support.
  • Our database has grown to several terabytes, so every SQL has to be optimized.
  • Everything runs in HA, with failovers and autoscaling.
  • Systems automatically generate documentation of all our APIs from code.
  • A lot of experienced colleagues to learn from.
