About Etsy Engineering

The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, and that the work we do is part of a larger creative culture represented by the hundreds of thousands of inspired artists and designers who make Etsy such a unique marketplace. We believe that small, empowered, proactive teams can do big things. We primarily write in PHP and JavaScript as well as in Go and Java.

This role is based in Brooklyn, NY or remote.
About the role
  • The Trust & Safety engineering team works on improving the buying experience and building trust by keeping the marketplace free of sellers and items that do not comply with our policies and values.
  • Work on automating the remediation of shop issues, so that sellers have the tools and right level of information required to bring their shops into compliance without lengthy and labor-intensive exchanges with Trust & Safety agents.
  • Help to build a technology portfolio that will allow the team to scale with Etsy as the number of buyers, sellers, and transactions continues to increase in the coming years.
  • Develop tools to prevent fraud and reduce the impact of fraudulent activity on Etsy and our buyers and sellers.
  • Maintain and improve Etsy''s brand and compliance posture by neutralizing financial, regulatory and reputational risks.
  • Provide detailed and constructive design and code reviews.
  • Work cross-functionally with various engineering teams.
About you
  • You''ll be helping us build great products and experiences for people buying and selling with Etsy.
  • In a Full-Stack Engineering role you will be contributing at all levels of our web application stack, ranging from back-end technologies (PHP, MySQL, Memcache) to front-end web interfaces (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React).
  • The teams working on each feature are small, so there''s a lot of meaningful collaboration between engineers, product managers, and designers.
  • We believe strongly in using both quantitative and qualitative methods to guide decisions. To that end, you''ll be able to use our in-house analytics tools to capture information and gain insights. With a strong focus on creative entrepreneurs, you will work closely alongside our research team, go on studio visits, and discover insights in our forums. You''ll also be able to use Etsy''s Continuous Deployment architecture to push code to production early and often (and you''ll probably push in your first week here).
What''s Next

Interested in working with us? Send us a cover letter and your CV or resume explaining why you''d be great for the job.

And if you write, draw, craft, or contribute to something you''re proud of, we''d love to hear about it.
At Etsy, we believe that a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace makes us a more relevant, more competitive, and more resilient company. We welcome people from all backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and experiences. Etsy is an equal opportunity employer.
