Engineering Manager, Frontend Infrastructure

Company: Wayfair
Location: Boston
Posted on: May 19, 2019

Job Description:

Shopping for the home is often overwhelming. Employer is an extreme case - it's visited by two million people daily, shopping across more than 10 million products: Home furnishings, d--cor, home improvement, housewares, and more. Our software engineering teams work hard to conceal the complexity of this experience. Every customer should come away feeling like they've found the perfect item for them. Shopping for the home should be exciting, and we're the team that makes that happen.
The Frontend Infrastructure team develops the foundation systems that enable teams to reliably build and deliver quality user interfaces. We collaborate with the Site Reliability and Developer Platforms teams in Infrastructure Engineering, as well as the Frontend Framework and Design Systems teams in Storefront, to innovate on our Front End platform, and create an environment in which developers can build delightful user interfaces for our customers.

The Frontend Infrastructure team owns our production node.js service for react.js Server Side rendering, builds our JavaScript module loading and bundling tools, and implements logging and monitoring for JavaScript applications. The team primarily writes framework-level JavaScript in Node.js and client-side applications, while occasionally moving between other layers of the web stack.
We are looking for an experienced engineering leader to manage a team of high-performing engineers that build Employer's Front End development platform.

Responsibilities include

mentoring and training engineers, building a strong team through effective hiring, developing the team's roadmap and quarterly objectives, coaching technical architects to develop the long-term vision for the Front End platform, and working with software and infrastructure stakeholders across the engineering organization.

What You'll Do

  • Lead a team of 5-7 software engineers, including senior engineers and architects
  • Be the Frontend Infrastructure manager and team lead, responsible for developing the roadmap and priorities for the future of our Front End platform, and being the point of contact for the team
  • Identify and deliver solutions that push the boundaries of our UI infrastructure stack to achieve platform and business goals
  • Build a strong team with capable leadership through effective hiring, on boarding, retention, and continuous improvement
  • Work closely with the other Frontend Core teams to expand the capabilities of our UI platform Recent Projects:
    • React.js SSR with Node.js: Server Side rendering is important for both performance and search engine discoverability. The Frontend Infrastructure team built our largest customer-facing Node.js service which handles React.js Server Side rendering, offering GraphQL support and communicating with our Application Server via websockets.
    • JavaScript Automated Testing: Automated unit and integration tests are an important part of our development life cycle. To improve the developer experience when writing tests, the Frontend Infrastructure team led the rollout of Jest and Enzyme for our JavaScript test platform, and recently, we rolled out parallelizable tests to further speed up our CI pipelines. How You'll Make an Impact:
      • Help make decisions that influence how customers shop at Employer
      • Lead a team writing code that is seen by millions of customers a day
      • Be a part of the team that is leading the market in delivering the most delightful customer online shopping experience for home furnishings in a quickly changing landscape Who you are:
        • A graduate of a computer science or engineering related degree program with 2+ years of relevant industry experience, OR have 4+ years of equivalent industry experience
        • Knowledge of JavaScript and its ecosystem
        • Proficient design production systems at scale
        • Experience in a tech lead or management role About Us:

          Employer is one of the world's largest online destinations for the home. Whether you work in our global headquarters in Boston or Berlin, or in our warehouses or offices throughout the world, we're reinventing the way people shop for their homes.
