Software Development Manager: Shipping Team Etsy
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Ship code. Ship stuff.
Etsy's Shipping and Fulfillment team is hiring an Engineering Manager. We're looking for an experienced leader with strong technical and managerial skills to help us make order fulfillment simple, affordable, and fast for buyers and sellers using the Etsy platform.
About the Team
Every month on Etsy over 4 million items are purchased from sellers in 200 countries. Our job is helping all of these unique items get where they need to go.
We make tools for managing the shipping process, printing postage, and tracking packages, and apply ourselves towards making shipping clear and easy. We?re a tight-knit group focused on solving real problems with thoughtfulness, rigor, and joy. The team is highly cross-disciplinary and you can expect to work with all manner of individuals working in the shipping, fulfillment and shop management domains, as well as folks working in the web, mobile, and infrastructure spaces.
Our work is closely tied to the daily productivity of Etsy sellers and we are engaged in a constant and ongoing dialogue with them through our early-release prototype teams, user research sessions and so forth. When our work benefits our customers, you?ll know it.
Our tools span many domains, but the core of our stack is LAMP and relies upon our engineering philosophy of using simplicity, great instrumentation and continuous deployment to help us work well at scale. We interface with many external data and service providers using all manner of APIs. We also get into imaging (for postage labels), mapping and geodata, and the mobile web.
About the Job
Engineering managers at Etsy play a small part in the hands-on process of building software, but a very large part in building a team and orchestrating the work of individual members. You?ll be responsible for nurturing the engineering culture on the team, partnering with product managers and others to come up with sensible and efficient implementation and execution plans. You?ll also be responsible for ensuring the ongoing smooth operation of our shipping tools, and fostering collaboration and coordination with other teams at Etsy.
This is a management-track position. You?ll need a technical background to be a good counsel and advocate for engineering, and you?ll probably wrangle data on a regular basis, but contributing production-facing code is low on the responsibilities list.

Matchmaker of the right work and the right people
Manager of task tracking software for the team
Wrangler of whatever tools the team needs to succeed
Advocate for engineers and engineering concerns
Creator of focus and inspiration

Organizer of bootcamps and rotations with other Etsy teams
Facilitator of inter-team collaboration and contribution
Hirer of technical staff

Doer of whatever else if takes for the team to ship and be successful
You have the passion and intellect for getting deep into different domains, have the sticktoitiveness to get hard things done, and you elevate the people around you.
You will be successful in this role if you:
Have prior experience building and running websites and consumer-facing products
Are excited by both product and engineering challenges and approach those challenges with a level-head
Understand the limits and potential of individuals and recognize the advantages of building cohesive teams
Have a keen awareness of how all of the pieces fit together?at both the architectural level in how high-quality software is built and the product level where the end result has to make sense
Can form deep understandings of products and how they are used
Listen more than you speak
Have demonstrated experience managing technical teams
Have prior experience integrating with 3rd party APIs
If you're interested in joining the team at Etsy, please send a cover letter along with your resume telling us what inspires you about Etsy and why you think you are perfect for the team (resumes without a cover letter will not be considered). If you contribute to an open source project, write a blog, or practice another craft besides software engineering, that means something to us, we?d love to hear about it.
