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. 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.
The Support Engineering/Issue Resolution squad at Etsy is looking for a Senior Software Engineer II to collaborate and lead in building excellent user experiences for buyers and sellers.
At Etsy, we are constantly looking for new ways to improve experiences between buyers and sellers. This becomes even more important when the unexpected occurs in the order process. Our mission on this squad is to make it easy to resolve older issues quickly while providing the best outcome possible when those issues arise.
On the Support Engineering squad, we believe that the work we do improves the lives of Etsy’s 81M+ buyers in a significant way. In the last 6 months, we have transformed how Etsy buyers report a problem with a transaction and receive a resolution for serious order issues. But our work is just beginning.
For the rest of the year, we’ll be focusing on improving the resolution experience for all buyers across Etsy, including a better system for buyers and sellers to self-resolve order issues. This position is an excellent opportunity to make a big impact on a new team at Etsy!
The technical staff at Etsy believe that code is craft, and that the work we do is part of a larger creative culture that includes the hundreds of thousands of inspired artists and designers who make Etsy such a unique marketplace.
We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. We believe in measuring everything, taking advantage of our pioneering continuous deployment system to ship code early and often, and keeping up a blameless culture based on trust and a commitment to learning.
This role is (eventually) located in one of our Brooklyn or San Francisco offices, or remote within the US and Canada. We’re also open to remote hires within all U.S. states except Hawaii and Alaska.
