Senior Software Engineer, Seller Insights

Etsy is hiring data-minded Software Engineers to join our Seller Insights team within our product organization. This is a unique opportunity to work on a large, fascinating set of data while having a measurable effect on our customers’ experience.

Our marketplace contains one-of-a-kind items from independent artists, designers, and vintage collectors. These users comprise a dynamic global community of millions of sellers who expect Etsy to help them manage their advertising portfolio and offer high-quality recommendations about how to scale their businesses.

Are you passionate about empowering the growth of millions of small businesses? Passionate about giving our sellers the tools they need to understand the health of those businesses? Are you as passionate about building tools for end users as you are about data pipelines and quality?

This is a full-time role located in Brooklyn, NY. 

We are language-agnostic in our approach to interviewing.
