Come join a team of highly motivated engineers committed to lead us to our next $10B in revenue. Our unique global Supply Chain is a key strategic advantage: we optimize for speedy delivery of our large home goods products and in this role you will have a significant technical impact, while helping us build innovative solutions which will fuel our growth. We are looking for a Senior Staff Engineer with high standards of excellence, strong sense of sound software design principles, and the capacity to lead by example through focused production of high quality code and software designs. While sharing your knowledge, experience, and skills with others is important, we are looking for candidates who enjoy writing software as much as talking to others about what software to write.

  • Design and develop cutting-edge solutions which allow for reuse and extensibility while still solving the primary problem at scale
  • Build solutions for multiple services, work in the code, guide team, and understand at a detailed level how the software works
  • Leverage your deep knowledge of computing systems to build Wayfairs next generation transportation and delivery network
  • Advise engineering management on technical roadmap, ensuring that the vision aligns with broader company objectives
  • Lead your teammates by example, as an extremely senior member of the team you will let your code and system designs demonstrate the path the team should follow
  • Help grow other engineers technically by mentoring, pairing, and developing other learning opportunities
  • Promote a culture of engineering excellence and strengthen the technical expertise of our engineering and product teams


    What You'll Need



    • 10+ years of experience in software engineering and designing systems at scale
    • Hands-on experience driving software development within high growth environments at scale
    • Superior organizational and analytical skills with hypothesis driven problem solving and turning data into actionable insights
    • Excellent communication skills with demonstrated experience driving teams forward and ability to influence decisions
    • Mix of startup and large company experience
    • Experience with containerization and web services preferred
