Job Description

In Supply Chain Technology, we focus on making sure our customers get what they want, when they need it. Whether it be a vial of lipstick in a Los Angeles warehouse, a sweater at a store in Annapolis, or next-day shipping of signature hi-tops, our team strives to guarantee levels of service and to delight customers. While this may sound simple, the algorithms, routing, advanced robotics, forecasting of demand all means that our engineering teams run at the forefront of supply chain trends. What does this mean for you? Simply put:

  • We place emphasis on the autonomy of our people and give them room to innovate and create. Much of what we do has no pre-made cookie cutter solution so we're not looking for cookie cutter teams.
  • We're undergoing a technology revolution, transforming traditional retail to delight our customers worldwide. Your IMPACT will be felt by many millions of people who rely on Nordstrom to feel and look great.

We're looking for a Sr. Manager, Technology – Automation Integration to join us. You will lead teams of engineers based locally and internationally to drive the development and execution of our next generation software layers driving fulfillment via robotics in our warehouses. This is an immensely rewarding role where you'll not only work with cutting edge technology but also help lay the software foundation for Nordstrom's future in supply chain networks.

If you want freedom to drive your own career and make an impact in people's lives all the while getting unmatched support from a company like no other, we'd love to talk to you. In this group we emphasize teamwork, work and play as one, succeed or fail together or not at all. If this sounds like you, we'd love to meet.


  • 15+ years of experience in enterprise team leadership in dynamic, high-scale environments. Your impact has been felt across the company and your record demonstrates this.
  • 15+ years and excellent proficiency in delivering high scale, distributed systems in a modern stack including, but not limited to, Java, GoLang, C++ in a services environment.
  • 4+ years managing managers
  • 5+ years in building supply chain systems (experience with a modern WMS preferred)
  • A proven track record of individual excellence and a demonstrated commitment to making others great. You are intimately familiar with modern software development practices but lean on collaboration in addition to process to drive outcomes.
  • Strong customer and stakeholder empathy. You must be not only the voice of the customer. You must be able to channel many points of view, synthesize them and drive alignment even in times of friction and disagreement.
  • At minimum, you have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related technical discipline
