Senior Software Engineer, Search Experience


This is a Full-time position in Brooklyn, NY posted November 16, 2021.

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

As a Senior Engineer on Search Experience, you will play a major role in improving the shopping experience for millions of Etsy buyers.

We are looking for someone who is product and delivery driven, and passionate about crafting innovative products at scale.

Would you enjoy helping someone find that flawless item, even when they might not know the exact words to describe it?

If so, this could be the perfect match.

This is a full-time position located (eventually) in our Brooklyn, NY office, and reporting to the Engineering Manager for Search Experience. 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.

  • Collaborate with product managers, product designers, analysts, researchers, and other full-stack engineers to deliver optimal content to tens of millions of users.

  • Of course, this is just a sample of the kinds of work this role will require!

    You should assume that your role will encompass other tasks, too, and that your job duties and responsibilities may change from time to time at Etsy’s discretion, or otherwise applicable with local law.


Ideally you’ll bring:

  • 5+ years of practical product development experience.

  • A track record operating within a large codebase and working to create simplicity from complex systems.

  • Bonus points if you’ve worked on e-commerce search experiences or other large-scale systems, or if you are familiar with machine learning fundamentals

  • An analytical approach to understand how to wield data to make informed decisions about your work

  • Experience writing understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability

  • Enthusiasm for thinking about the implications of your work on end users.

    You should be comfortable collaborating with Product Managers, Data Analysts, and Designers to ensure that you’re delivering impactful product features

  • A trust in and commitment to Etsy’s vision, mission and values.
