The Core Platform team’s mission is to increase the velocity of Etsy’s product engineers. We provide abstractions that help product engineers work with infrastructure-based services. Some examples of current work include:
a real-time dataset service with Bigtable to power search ranking
a change data capture pipeline utilizing Kafka
collaborating with our Database Infrastructure team on a new database abstraction layer
We’re looking for people who are interested in getting involved in a wide array of technologies. We support multiple services and features - you’ll be working on projects that may include Kubernetes, Kafka, Airflow, Bigtable, gRPC, Golang, PHP, Terraform and more!
We’re seeking engineers who are not only excited to work across a diverse set of technologies and a broad set of requirements, but someone who can challenge assumptions and ask questions that make the rest of the team think, “why do we do it this way?” Most of all, you should be user focused, data driven and passionate about collaborating with your teammates and peers. Your responsibilities will include:
Developing and maintaining critical path production services
Building tools and libraries that make it easy to take advantage of our infrastructure
Identifying opportunities to improve our architecture, operability or capabilities
You have some shell scripting experience.
You’re customer focused and always build with a user in mind.
You use data to inform your decisions.
You’re a strong communicator and know how to match the message to the medium.
Extra marks if you’ve been exposed to technologies such as MySQL, Kafka, Dataflow, Dataproc, Bigtable, Kubernetes or their equivalents.
We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided a reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment.
