Job Description

Wayfair is a leader in the eCommerce space for all things for the home (couches, end tables, lamps, and literally 8+ million other items).

What You’ll Do:

  • Managing projects that span multiple sprint lines including project planning, resource allocation, team building
  • Globalizing our catalog to allow product content to be translated into a number of different languages as we expand our offerings abroad (PHP / SQL)
  • Building out a best in class web portal for our suppliers to add to their product selection and improve the quality of the product data we capture (PHP / JS / SQL / C#.NET)
  • Leveraging our extensive 3D model library to produce compelling, lifelike imagery to ensure our customers can visualize our top products in their homes (Python / 3DS MAXScript)
  • Building a pricing engine capable of delivering millions of price changes to site in under an hour to help the business stay agile at scale (C# / F# / SQL)
