Company Description

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world. As an Etsy employee, you’ll tackle unique problems alongside talented coworkers committed to Keeping Commerce Human. We're large enough that you'll focus on meaningful, complex challenges, but small enough that you can make a rewarding impact.

Job Description

The Help Me Grow product group is looking for Senior Software Engineers to collaborate and lead in building trustworthy software and outstanding user experiences. Here’s a taste of the problems we’re solving:

  • How can we make it easier for sellers to run their shops?
  • Continually improving our ad platform to offer more accurate bidding and to display the most compelling ads we can
  • Building an ever larger audience of buyers by building new capabilities for our marketing team
  • Providing sellers with the data and reports they need to understand how their shop is performing
  • Offering sellers new ways to connect with buyers, whether it’s by enabling buyers to create collections of items, offering sellers the opportunity to create listing videos, or coming up with new ad formats

Etsy is built on Google Cloud Platform, and our Web stack runs on PHP and MySQL. On the front end, we’ve developed and migrated to our own design system, and mostly build interfaces using React. We were one of the earliest and are one of the largest practitioners of continuous deployment in the industry. We also use a lot of other technologies and languages – Scala and Java for big data and distributed systems, Python and TensorFlow for machine learning, and Go for some services.

Upon final interview rounds, the team would partner with you to find the best team fit within the Help Me Grow group.

This is a full-time position within our Help Me Grow, Product Engineering group, located in Brooklyn, NY.

We’re also open to remote hires within all U.S. states except Hawaii and Alaska.

About the Role

As a senior software engineer at Etsy, you will:

  • Take the lead on advising and implementing solutions to loosely scoped problems
  • Deliver projects independently OR by leading the path for your teammates to do so.
  • Mentor and coach other engineers on your team and across the company to help them succeed.
  • Usually work across multiple parts of a system, whether it’s front-end and back-end, or online and offline.

We are proud to have an engineering culture that encourages career growth and learning. You can learn more about our philosophies, tools, and some of the challenges we’ve been solving on our Code as Craft, our engineering blog.

Qualifications

About You

You will do well in this role if you:

  • Have five or more years of practical software development experience.
  • Can optimally and effectively use data to drive decision-making and solve problems.
  • Are comfortable working within a large codebase and strive to create simplicity from complex systems.
  • Write understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability and scalability.
  • Are comfortable working on a cross-functional product team with Product Managers, Designers, Researchers, and Data Analysts to maximize the impact of our work.
  • Are invested in Etsy’s vision, mission and values.

Experience with the technologies we currently use is beneficial, but not required.

Additional Information

What's Next

If you're interested in joining the team at Etsy, please send a cover letter and resume telling us why you'd be right for the position. As you’ve hopefully seen already, Etsy is a place that values individuality and variety. We don’t want you to be like everyone else — we want you to be like you! So write to us and tell us what you’re all about.

Also point us to any online presence you may have (blog, Twitter, Facebook, rap sheet), and if you write, draw, practice a craft, or contribute to something you’re proud of, that means a lot to us too. We would love to hear about it.

Our Promise

At Etsy, we believe that a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace makes us a more relevant, more competitive, and more resilient company. We welcome people from all backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and experiences. Etsy is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ancestry, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital or family status, disability, gender identity or expression, veteran status, or any other legally protected status.
