<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Wayfair’s Release Engineering Teams own the deployment ecosystems used to release and rapidly iterate on thousands of Wayfair applications. Our release pipelines push over 600 Git changesets per day with (mostly) zero downtime to environments including PHP, Python, Java, C#, JavaScript, Solr, SQL Server, Storm, and Hadoop.&nbsp; We own the systems and platforms that allow more than 3,500 engineers to deploy their code safely, quickly, and visibly to production thousands of times a month.&nbsp;</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We’re in the middle of a sea-change, as we move from the home-grown, monolithic approaches that have served us well for a long time--but that we’ve outgrown--to a world that will let our engineers move faster. We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer </span>to help us continue to drive to a highly scalable, agile, CI/CD environment.</p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">That world looks like a best-in-class, standardized approach with decoupled systems, isolated build pipelines, and containers deployed on Kubernetes. There’s a ton to do, and we want your help!</span></p>

<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">An understanding of the role that configuration management software performs in a modern DevOps environment and experience working with it (Puppet, Ansible) from the software development side</span></li>

<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Familiarity with core software engineering principles such as SOLID, TDD, etc and flexibility to work in different languages.&nbsp;</span></li>

<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">A passionate interest in growing large-scale, loosely-coupled ecosystems that deliver value – and keep delivering value – greater than the sum of their parts</span></li>


<li style="font-weight: 400;"><strong>Nice-to-have</strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">: Experience with Kubernetes and related technologies--you know their tradeoffs, where they shine and where challenges lie&nbsp;</span></li>
