PROGRESSIVE NON-DOGMATIC SOFTWARE ENGINEER
Wayfair is a leader in the ecommerce space for things for the home (couches, end tables, lamps, and literally 3.1 million other items)...and #51 overall in the ecommerce rankings. HOWEVER, we\'re still small with that startup feel within engineering (~45 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 ***
