The Search Infrastructure team at Etsy builds & maintains the core search platform that help Etsy buyers & sellers discover & celebrate handmade goods from all over the world. We own & operate all system components powering Etsy's search & AI tools & aim to utilize aggressive automation to ensure our infrastructure scales independently of the size of the team.
The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, & that the work we do is part of a larger creative culture that includes the hundreds of thousands of inspired artists & 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 & often, & keeping up a blameless culture based on trust & a commitment to learning.
