You will have the opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing and tech savvy organisation, working on latest open source tech stack and frameworks as we develop, mature & scale these systems to be best in class and meet our growing demands, gain exposure to all aspects of fashion business and truly shape all the parts of a comprehensive e-commerce and fashion tech platform.

You will be a part of: Supply Chain Management (Outbound)

Supply Chain Management systems form the backbone of our core business and customer experience. Any business runs on a simple construct of Demand (Consumer) and Supply (Producer). However, a set of complex and intricate methods, processes and systems connect the demand with supply in a deterministic and predictable way. These methods, processes and systems collectively form the Supply Chain for the business. The multi-billion-dollar Myntra-Jabong business fundamentally rests on a set of highly scalable, robust and intelligent Supply Chain Management systems that solve real world problems of predicting the demand from millions of our customers, for a combination of millions of products from our product catalog, and intelligently connecting that demand to thousands of national and international sellers or suppliers using a set of advanced homegrown tech products that we build and manage. SCM engineering employs new-age technologies such as Distributed Computing constructs, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence; scalable data stores in Mongo, Redis, Cassandra, MySQL, Elastic Search, Solr; scalable programming constructs in Node.js, GoLang, Java, Vertx, Play, JavaScript, Python, and new age frameworks such as ReactJS and ReactNative to solve some of the hardest problems in the e-commerce business with world-class software products.

The SCM engineering at Myntra-Jabong operates within two distinct verticals: Supply-chain Outbound (Order acceptance & orchestration, Inventory, Promise, Warehousing/Logistics/Mktplace Fulfilment & Customer Care systems) & Supply-chain Inbound (Planning, Buying, Selection, Pricing, Catalog, Partner Experience systems).
