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.

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

  • Have a growth mindset and solve ambiguous problems with many implications.

  • Demonstrate leadership on every project, whether you're its leader or contributor

  • Love to experiment and use data to drive decision-making and problem-solving. 

  • Are a mindful, transparent, and thoughtful communicator

  • Are comfortable with technical leadership

Teams on Help Me Grow currently hiring Senior Engineers:

  • Buyers Ad Experience (BadX): Our team connects buyers to items they love from sellers who are growing their businesses through paid advertising. We work on every page across Etsy, carefully considering ad relevance and page performance.

  • Offsite Ads: Offsite Ads is responsible for building products that expand the ways we can expand our off-site marketing and tie purchases made on the site back to the advertising campaigns that led to those purchases.

  • Seller Standards: Our goal is to motivate sellers to provide world-class customer service. We are defining Etsy's standards for customer service, and helping sellers meet our standards through buyer-side and seller-side features.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

At Reverb, employees are seen as individuals with the potential to make a real impact on our team and community. I was given opportunities to explore my skills and create my current position to match my interests and the company’s need for a learning and development manager.

Jamie

Learning & Development Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We task our teams with solving real customer problems—like “I expect to effortlessly discover music gear I’ll love”—and give them the context and long-term goals needed to shape their work, not solutions. We know the people closest to the work and our customers are in the best position to explore a range of directions and choose the best one.
