Sr. Software Engineer: Core Platform Etsy
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Sr. Software Engineer, Core Platform
We're seeking talented engineers to join our "Core Platform" team. You'll be expected to write infrastructure code, command-line tools, move mountains of data, optimize code for site performance, and various other forms of heavy-lifting (Not literally. But maybe!)
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/
About the Job
The "Core Platform" team at Etsy essentially acts as the glue between various engineering and operations teams. The team works on few public-facing features. Instead we focus on the site's underpinnings like caching architecture, large-scale data migrations, front- and back-end site performance, image storage, monitoring tools, development environments, and code deployment tools. You should be comfortable thinking in nanoseconds, petabytes, disk seeks, network latency, error rates, and power laws. The word "millions" is used frequently, and in many contexts. Ideally you have a "measure twice, cut once" tattoo. Come prepared to talk about your favorite graph you ever made, or the most epic catastrophe you've caused.
Heard of DevOps and Continuous Deployment? This is it in action. Come and get some.
For Core Platform, we are seeking engineers with:
Demonstrated ability to master any programming domain, given a little time to do so (you've likely worked with a variety of languages in your career).
Strong database experience, especially around scaling applications. You can spin yarns about how you've done this right and wrong at your previous jobs. And we'll give bonus points if you can actually spin yarn.
Understanding of the various aspects involved in running a large-scale web site.
Must love dogs.
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 10 million members in over 150 countries. Our sellers collectively list around 10 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.
