Job Description
What's the role?

The Web Modularity team at Etsy is hiring a Senior Software Engineer. We're a new, small team with a big mission: modularizing our core web platform codebase and encouraging adoption of this modular architecture throughout Etsy. In this role, you'll be partnering with other members of the Web Modularity team as well as numerous other groups within Etsy to make this mission a reality.

The Web Modularity team is part of the Web Backend Enablement group at Etsy. As part of this group, we're focused on the development experience for Etsy's web platform. Currently, that means working to modernize our API, modularizing our core web platform (this team!), and improving developer and test tooling.

This is a full-time position reporting to the Senior Engineering Manager. For this role, we are considering candidates based in the United States who are either remote, flex, or office-based. Etsy offers different work modes to meet the variety of needs and preferences of our team. Learn more about our flexible work options and vaccination policy here.

What does the day-to-day look like?

  • Identify opportunities and organize initiatives to modularize Etsy's core web platform
  • Engage with a diverse set of teams and stakeholders to drive adoption of modularization
  • Write, test, instrument, and document any code necessary in support of modularization. This may be in a variety of languages, but at least includes PHP and JavaScript
  • Of course, this is just a sample of the kinds of work this role will require! You should assume that your role will encompass other tasks, too, and that your job duties and responsibilities may change from time to time at Etsy's discretion, or otherwise applicable with local law.
Qualities that will help you thrive in this role are:
  • At least one of either:
    • Experience refactoring large monoliths into either modular monoliths or microservices
    • Exceptional modern PHP knowledge
  • Proven track record of partnering across many teams to drive adoption of new technologies or practices
  • Led and completed multiple large, successful projects within a team environment
  • Experience working in a cloud environment
  • E-commerce application development experience
