Systems Innovator, Back-End

The Systems Innovations department is tasked with developing custom solutions for our clients ranging from data egress from client internal systems to data ingress to retail partners, direct to consumer websites, and much more. We work in the fast-paced digital e-commerce space, where requirements change daily, new capabilities launch constantly, and products are being purchased and delivered to consumers faster than ever.

Projects will be both short and long-term, ranging from smaller brand manufacturers to some of the largest consumer goods companies in the world. The Systems Innovation department is responsible for assessing business opportunities, developing solutions, setting priorities, and working toward those goals while managing multiple diverse projects. Projects will often include development work on custom connections between Salsify, a Product Information Management system (PIM), and outside systems including Shopify, BigCommerce, Drupal, Magento, MuleSoft, SAP, inRiver, Stibo, and WebDAM, to name just a few. Other projects will include working on custom scripts and systems for internal Gournay Consulting use, such as utilizing OCR and ML platforms.

The Back-End Systems Innovator will be instrumental in making sure that priorities are met and will exercise skills in languages such as JavaScript, NodeJS, NextJS, React, and other back-end scripting languages. The ideal candidate would be able to exercise great time management skills and show a fundamental understanding of common programming concepts, as well as the ability to work well with a team of like-minded employees.
