Company Description

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world. Etsy, Inc.'s 'house of brands' portfolio has expanded to now include four individually distinct ecommerce brands – Etsy, fashion resale marketplace Depop, musical instrument marketplace Reverb, and Brazil-based handmade goods marketplace Elo7. As an Etsy employee, you’ll tackle unique problems alongside talented coworkers committed to Keeping Commerce Human. We're large enough that you'll focus on meaningful, complex challenges, but small enough that you can make a rewarding impact.


Job Description

The Web Modularity team at Etsy is hiring a Staff 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, Modularity. We are considering remote candidates based in the U.S. for this position. Etsy offers three different work modes to meet the variety of needs and preferences of our team: Flex mode for candidates who are comfortable traveling to an office location 2+ times per week, Remote mode, and Office-based mode. Learn more about our flexible work modes and vaccination policy here.

About the role

  • 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



About you

  • 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

It can also be helpful if you have:

  • Experience working in a cloud environment
  • E-commerce application development experience

What's Next

So write to us and tell us what you're all about.
