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.
About the team
Our teams are responsible for recommendations. Our aim is to present the best of Etsy’s inventory. As an engineer on our team, you will play a major role in improving the shopping experience for millions of Etsy buyers. We’re a cross-functional group of engineers, data scientists, product managers, designers, and researchers.
With your help, we are giving our buyers better tools to find what they are looking for and to help them form a connection with our sellers. In this role, you will put your skills to use by helping us improve the ranking and suggestions of localized results through machine learning algorithms. You will also build workflows and pipelines to optimally transform data into appropriate results for our buyers. You will join a hardworking team of engineers to collaborate on all of these projects.
In this role, you will have the opportunity to work with our Data Science and ML team, Data Platform team and many more product squads. We’re a growing team with a huge impact that builds tools and platform capabilities for data scientists and ML engineers to access feature data, build machine learning models, test hypotheses and productionize them on our ML platform hosted in Google Cloud. We value empathy, communication and technical skills equally. Here’s a taste of the problems we’re solving:
– How can we help someone find that flawless item, even when they don’t know what they’re looking for?
– How can the recommendations experience make Etsy come to life and feel as vibrant as the community of makers that’s behind it?
– How can we understand buyer’s motives and interests to personalize their experience?
– How can we help buyers to explore the breadth of Etsy’s inventory?
We are language-agnostic in our approach to interviewing.
This role is located (eventually) in either our SF office or our Brooklyn HQ. We are also able to hire remotely within the US & Canada.
