Engineering Manager: Core Platform Etsy
We?re looking for a new manager to help expand our Core Platform team to support Etsy?s next phase of growth.
About the Team
Highly motivated and extremely talented, Core Platform engineers are the glue between engineering and operations teams. Focusing on high scale web serving architectures, database resiliency and abstraction layers, developer API scaffolding, large-scale data and code migrations, caching architectures, image storage, monitoring tools, and development environments, the Core Platform team oversees the underpinnings of running the world?s largest handmade marketplace.
About the Job
As a manager, you will provide direction and vision for maintaining, improving and extending site infrastructure; drive execution of infrastructure and platform changes; influence organization-wide development and deployment practices; and keep Etsy at its best.
You are an optimistic, positive force for your team. You believe your team is composed of humans, not resources. You thrive on helping to develop careers and foster lasting relationships. When you see something broken, you fix it.
You will be Sucessful in this role if you:
Inspire and believe in the goodness of others.
Know how to win the hearts and minds of developers.
Understand thoroughly the architecture of large-scale websites including database sharding techniques and caching mechanisms.
Are fully versed in programming and software development principles including procedural and object oriented design patterns, code optimization techniques, common data structures and algorithms, continuous integration, and continuous deployment.
Are very familiar with computer architecture, system administration, and the various pieces of the web serving stack including: disk I/O, memory usage patterns, Linux kernel parameter tuning, common UNIX tools, and configuration of Apache, MySQL, PHP and memcached.
Are not afraid of a little tcpdump
If you're interested in joining the team, please send us your resume. You won?t be surprised to hear, though, that we won?t consider it without a cover letter. Let us know how you fit the bill for each of our requirements above. Etsy is a place that values individuality and variety, so use your judgment and write to us in your own voice. If you have a presence on the web that we can easily access (Twitter, Facebook, rap sheet), contribute to an open source project, write a blog, or practice another craft besides designing beautiful, functional websites, that means something to us, we?d love to hear about it.
