Wayfair is a leader in the ecommerce space for things for the home (couches, end tables, lamps, and literally 4.5 million other items)...and #50 overall in the ecommerce rankings. HOWEVER, we're still small with that startup feel within engineering (~90 coders). We're even in a continuous deployment model as we've always been.
We're looking for sharp, logical thinkers who aren't married to a particular language and can easily adapt to our mix of PHP, Python, ASP, Hadoop/Mapreduce/Java, and even a little C++ underneath it all. We have a massive amount of data under all of this so good SQL skills (of any kind) would be ideal as well.
Projects include working on our main ecommerce site to deliver a more engaging ecomm experience for our customers. As you’ll see from the new site design, we’ve abandoned the busyness that plagues most sites (even the big ones) and we’re working to more effectively court our users during their online experience. We have many concurrent projects currently that include everything from our revolutionary recommendation engine to the nano-second processing of orders.
*** 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, SQL is a must, scripting language experience as well.
Wayfair is the largest online-only retailer of home furnishings and house wares in the United States. We're looking for the brightest, sharpest, most creative minds in every field to help. Are you one? If you like transparency, friendliness, a relaxed but results-driven work environment filled with like-minded top-tier talent, Wayfair would like to hear from you. We own and operate Wayfair, AllModern, and Joss & Main. We are on target for over $600 million in revenue and currently employ over 1000 employees in offices located in Boston, Utah, Kentucky, the U.K, Germany, Ireland and Australia. Wayfair was founded in 2002 and is privately held and profitable. We offer competitive salaries, comprehensive benefits, pre-IPO equity, a long-term and sustainable, next-generation, e-commerce business model as well as surprising and generous perks designed to attract and retain the brightest people who are incredibly excited about what they do.
