Company Description

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world.

We’re large enough that you’ll focus on meaningful, complex challenges, but small enough that you can make a rewarding impact.Job Description
The Core Fulfillment product group is looking for Senior Software Engineers to collaborate and lead in building trustworthy software and outstanding user experiences.

Here’s a taste of the problems we’re solving:

  • How can we make it easier for sellers to manage their shops?
  • Leveraging Etsy’s unique marketplace capabilities to meet growing demands in the fulfillment space
  • Building best-in-class algorithms to provide realistic shipping time estimates to our buyers
  • Providing sellers with the data and reports they need to understand how their shop is performing
  • Expanding our shipping offerings internationally to support a marketplace that connects buyers and sellers globally
  • Etsy is built on Google Cloud Platform, and our Web stack runs on PHP and MySQL. On the front end, we’ve developed and migrated to our own design system, and mostly build interfaces using React. We were one of the earliest and are one of the largest practitioners of continuous deployment in the industry.

We are proud to have an engineering culture that encourages career growth and learning. You can learn more about our philosophies, tools, and some of the challenges we’ve been solving on our Code as Craft, our engineering blog. https://codeascraft.com/
