About the Team
The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, good software & systems designs are works of art, & that the work we do is part of larger creative culture represented by the hundreds of thousands of inspired creative entrepreneurs who make Etsy such a wondrous marketplace. We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. We also believe in the right tool for the job, not language-as-religion. Our current systems run PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, Solr/Lucene, Postgres, MySQL, & more. Check out our Engineering blog:http://codeascraft.etsy.com/
About the Job
You'll be helping us build new & awesome experiences for people buying & selling on Etsy. We're looking for full-stack engineers - you'll be dealing with the MySQL, Memcache, PHP, & front-end stuff (HTML/CSS/JS). The teams working on each feature are pretty small (a few engineers, a designer, & a product manager), so there's a lot of meaningful collaboration.
Because we're making user-facing features, we believe strongly in collecting & analyzing numerical data to help guide our decisions. To that end, you'll be able to use our in-house analytics tools to gather information & gain insights. You'll also be able to use Etsy's Continuous Deployment architecture to push code to production whenever you please (and you'll probably push on your first day here).
This is a paid internship that includes a generous housing stipend.
You're tenacious, driven, & have a passion for learning. You love to collaborate & have meaningful interactions with everyone you meet. You enjoy the rush of taking a risk & the satisfaction of having an experiment work as you expected. You believe in the connective power of Etsy's peer-to-peer marketplace, & want to create the code that will make it stronger.
