Etsy is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our Localization and Translation team.

With your help, we are giving our buyers and sellers better tools to find what they are looking for, to sell their goods, and to connect with one another. You will join a talented team of engineers to collaborate on projects. We have localized our site through currency formatting , worked with our big data stack to create trending searches on Etsy, and most recently worked to expand Etsy into Germany .

You will have a major impact in all of these areas and help our 31.2 million buyers find what they're looking for among our 1.9 million sellers' listings, especially crossing borders and languages in our global marketplace.

Looking ahead, this is what you can expect from your first year on the team:

Within your first month, you shipped several things, pairing with teammates when appropriate. You asked a lot of questions and filled in a lot of gaps. You understood our immediate roadmap at a high level: why we worked on those projects, and their impact.

Within your first six months, you continued to pair on new-to-you things, but were independent with familiar tasks. You had a strong understanding of your projects; how the pieces you shipped fit into the whole, and what came next. Our roadmap is updated quarterly and your input shaped it. You shipped a lot and made significant contributions to team goals.

Within your first year, you taught what you learned to others. You shipped features that make a lasting difference for our buyers and sellers, and suggested improvements for the future. You drove projects to completion and led projects with your teammates.

This is a full time role located in our San Francisco office.

About the Role

    • Contribute at all levels of our web application stack, ranging from front-end web interfaces (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) to back-end technologies (PHP, Java, MySQL, Scala, Hadoop, Vertica). Experience in these technologies is nice to have, not required.Provide detailed and constructive design and code reviews.
    • Work cross-functionally with various engineering teams.
    • Gain insights through research, our forums, and our A/B tests.
    • Push code to production early and often using our continuous deployment systems.
    • Empathy, communication, and technical skill are valued equally.

About You

    • You turn ideas into deeply reliable and well tested code that other people - or you, six months into the future - will find easy to comprehend and modify.
    • You are comfortable collaborating closely with product managers and designers, providing estimates or product ideas that will influence your team's roadmap.
    • You love to craft, whether through code or other artistic expression (The latter is nice to have).
    • You are a mindful, transparent, and communicative member of your team.

What's Next
