Software Engineer Etsy
Etsy.com is looking for talented programmers of all kinds! This opening is for people who are generally excellent and may not fit into an open specialty.
About the Engineering Team
The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, good software and systems designs are works of art, and that the work we do is part of larger creative culture represented by the hundreds of thousands of inspired makers who make Etsy such a wondrous marketplace. We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. We also believe in the right tool for the job, not language-as-religion. Our current systems run PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, Solr/Lucene, Postgres, MySQL, and more. Check out our Engineering blog: http://codeascraft.etsy.com/
You are the kind of developer that can master any programming domain, given a little time to do so. Ideally you have mastered several in the course of your career. You write code (at least in part) because you love doing it. You may have contributed to open source projects.
You have a computer science degree, a related degree, or an utterly unrelated degree and life experience. Or, no degree at all and life experience. We celebrate the fact that there are many paths one can take as an apprentice in the craft of programming.
Etsy is the world's most vibrant handmade marketplace. Our mission is to enable people all over the world to make a living making things. The growing Etsy community includes over 8 million members in over 150 countries. Our sellers collectively list around 8.5 million active items, and in 2010 we sold over $300 million of goods. Etsy operates transparently and you can check in to see how the Etsy community is doing in our monthly weather reports.
