Wayfair Careers

Engineering Manager

Boston, MA

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). However, we're still small with that start-up feel within engineering. Our engineers are building highly interactive web tools to support our extensive 8+ million item Product Catalog. We’re helping to curate the most compelling customer experience anywhere on the web.

We're looking for growth-minded, energetic people who enjoy innovation and thrive on complexity and scale. For these teams, we are looking for strong object-oriented design skills.  Engineers are truly full stack, building out full-featured, highly interactive web experiences for our end users as well as distributed backend systems capable of handling millions of changes daily.  We have a massive amount of data under all of this so SQL skills and an analytic mindset are important as well.

Recent Projects:

  • 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)

*** This position is on-site at our Boston, MA headquarters - not a freelance / remote opportunity ***

We don't care what language you grew up with...we have a wide array of technologies here. OO skills are great; functional programming and scripting language experience are prized as well.

An ideal candidate has:

  • 6-12+ years of relevant experience
  • Exceptional problem solving skills, experience developing creative solutions to complex problems
  • Experience in Object Oriented programming (PHP or .NET preferred)
  • SQL Database design, development and performance optimization experience
  • Sense of humor and excellent communication skills
  • Desire to mentor, teach and lead teams
