SDE

They say if a butterfly flaps in Tibet, it changes the wind in Seattle. We say THAT'S TOO LONG TO WAIT. And that's why we go out and buy a fan, so we don't have to wait on some stupid butterfly to wake up and flap. We alter the wind IMMEDIATELY. BECAUSE THAT'S THE SORT OF PEOPLE WE ARE!!!

Are you like us? Do you enjoy working on challenging problems that directly impact and empower customers at a massive scale? Are you interested in innovating and engineering services and website platforms that power our business operations? Are you sick to death of empowering some no-good butterfly? DO YOU WANT TO STICK YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE WINDOW AND SCREAM "I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT FRONT END AND BACK END DEVELOPMENT AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE"?!?!? If so, maybe this is your kinda place, yeah? Yeah. YEAH. YEAH.

In this job, you’ll learn: that Mr. Tibetan Butterfly isn't so bad, really. He's just a butterfly trying to get by in the world. In fact, you two would really get along. Maybe you should go get a few drinks together some weeknight. Watch the game. You know, talk it out.

Intangible benefits: A chance to build great software for customers. Have you ever touched software? Huh? If you said yes, you're WRONG. You touched the device on which the software is stored. Just like a story. Or a poem. Or song. Or your memories of childhood.

Potential hazards: If you start talking about poems and songs and your memories of childhood too much, someone's gonna punch you in the arm. So just be warned.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: yeah, funny thing. There aren't yet a lot of superheroes who got their powers after being bitten by a mobile app. But the moment a hero like that shows up? That'll be you. That'll be you all the way.

Worst part of the job: when the butterfly shows up drunk and starts ranting about how people don't take him seriously as a weather controlling device. He'll try to convince you that HAARP is just twenty billion butterflies strapped to a board. Just smile and nod. Smile and nod.

Make sure you bring: a custom printed purple shirt that reads "I got tricked into wearing this by the guy who writes the job descriptions." Wear it. Show it off to everyone. They'll totally be checking for it too. snicker

Are you comfortable discussing Ops with Woot’s own physical fulfillment, Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), drop-ship fulfillment, and facilities management?

In this job, you’ll learn: that Ops are actually small purple creatures with large eyes, red wings, and greenish-blue horns. And you'll be in charge of them!

Intangible benefits: Ops are adorable! And when you direct them properly, they make a small cooing noise like a bird or a kitten genetically altered to sound like a bird.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: guest-starring to finish the plot line you were in when your book was cancelled. Nothing against you personally, it's just the kids today want dark stuff, like Sandman and The Dark Knight. There's no room for a monthly coming-of-age story about a young person and their Ops. Well, maybe at Dark Horse.

Worst part of the job: bath day. Ops have razor-sharp tentacles that only come out when they're exposed to water.

Make sure you bring: your Opsiedeck. Then, when you get an Ops you don't already have, you can record it!

Responsibilities:

  • Lead a team of 4-5 functional managers focused on driving customer experience and efficiency improvements.

(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

Sublimation. A concept invented (so to speak) by the philosophers. It's the way a mature adult takes their destructive desires and turns them into something positive!

Mobile Software Development Engineer
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

Just one generation ago, we kept phone numbers in our heads. Today, we keep them in our phones. Our appointments, our notes, our fun, our LIVES, they're all locked away in those devices that never leave our side. Some people fight it. You? You embrace it. You're smart enough to recognize that the human race has been beat.

So give in! Prove to the iPhones and Androids that you ARE worthy to survive in the new handheld empire! Come join us as we build the mobile and tablet experience for Woot customer on iOS and Android. You'll work directly with project management (a.k.a a giant looming one button monolith) to define new features, translate designs into shipped applications, and bring the full Woot experience to the world of the mobile. And on that day, when the mobiles rise up and the mere flesh-creatures are crushed beneath proprietary Lightning cables, you will ride a golden chariot at the right hand of the single button from which all actions begin.

In this job, you’ll learn: That being passionate about providing an exceptional customer experience is the only thing saving you from working in the mines where they find the gems for all those puzzle games.

Intangible benefits: We use Scrum and test-driven development to meet business objectives, build code continuously, and refactor systems as needed. And who doesn't love Scrum, right?

Potential hazards: Only if you get too focused on Scrum. Scrum's never going to commit to you. Get that out of your head. You knew what this was the moment you walked in the door.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one who says "I JUST NEED YOU TO BUY ME A FEW MORE SECONDS WHILE I FINISH HACKING" just as the bad guys kick in the door.

Worst part of the job: when you see Scrum with some other programmer. It's like Scrum doesn't even care that you're right there. RIGHT THERE.

Make sure you bring: your mobile device. We don't actually have one of our own, you see, and we'll probably want to borrow yours when we order pizza. Do you want pizza? Oh, hey, we forgot our wallet this morning, is there any chance that maybe you could spot us a couple bucks?

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • 3+ years professional experience in software development
  • Strong understand of computer science fundamentals, including object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis

  • Experience with developing performance tests to find trouble spots and benchmarks to ensure performance is constant or improving
  • Experience crafting automated unit, integration, functional, and regression tests for iOS and/or Android

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience developing cross-platform applications using C# and Xamarin

Senior Product Manager, Mobile Applications
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

The mobile platform is growing even as it’s shrinking. Yeah. Go ahead. Wrap your mind around that. If you think you can, and also you can demonstrate exceptional mobile application product management skills while developing products that matter to the world, the universe, this particular dimension and the omniverse at large, we’re interested in talking to you! First project: a spell-checking program that doesn’t try to turn omniverse into omnivores.

In this job, you’ll learn: the proper way to enter a room so as to minimize your chance of being hit with a Nerf dart.

Intangible benefits: when you bring a huge box of donuts your developers will look at you the way a newborn puppy looks at its mother.

Potential hazards: only if you don’t set the donuts down fast enough.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the mysterious shadowy figure, probably with an eyepatch, who coordinates the team from a secret, undisclosed location.

Worst part of the job: finding the secret, undisclosed location where we put your desk. After all, if we told you where it was, it would no longer be undisclosed.

Make sure you bring: an eyepatch. Otherwise your first day’s gonna sting a little.

Basic Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of product management experience from a technology, e-commerce, digital media or retail related company with some experience in mobile application development

Senior UX Designer
(Woot Workshop, Seattle, WA)

UX! See that? It's a perfectly formed U and a perfectly shaped X. Pretty good, huh? Yeah, we're pretty proud of how well we designed that UX up there. But maybe, just maybe, you can do better. So if you think you can UX up to our level, well, give it a shot. But we've got to warn you. We've been typing "UX" for years now. We're prrrretty good at it.

That having been said, if you think you're the talented Senior UX Designer who can outshine an UX like this - UX! - then give us a jingle. You'll need to be comfortable with all manner of visual design projects, from a template-based icon to interactive web features to Heaven knows what else. Innovation and independence is valued highly, but we'll still expect you to listen to our dumb ideas and make them work. Applicants will be evaluated primarily on their online portfolios; failure to provide work samples (and your role in each) will pretty much guarantee that we won't call you. Coding or other multimedia production skills are a bonus. Also you need to be able to write "UX" without any typos. Think you can handle that?

In this job, you’ll learn: that showing off a portfolio which demonstrates how you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including: color, layout, typography, and illustration, an in-depth understanding of web design principles and usability, and a solid grounding in the possibilities (and limitations) of current and emerging web technologies and trends is literally the only way to impress us. Not counting the guy who did fifty thousand jumping jacks without taking a break. Now THAT was impressive.

Intangible benefits: it's fun to watch people doing jumping jacks in the parking lot, if that's what you mean.

Potential hazards: the heartbreak of seeing a person who's just done 49,999 jumping jacks collapse into a puddle of tears, knowing they missed the record by mere inches.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: a billionaire named Jack with radiation-enhanced jumping powers (who hopefully does some UX work on the side).

Worst part of the job: when the boss calls you in to ask why you misspelled "UX" for the third time. Seriously. Get yourself together.

Make sure you bring: a portfolio which demonstrates how you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including: color, layout, typography, and illustration, an in-depth understanding of web design principles and usability, and a solid grounding in the possibilities (and limitations) of current and emerging web technologies and trends. Just in case you hadn't caught on to how serious we are about that part.

Responsibilities:

  • Create a world-class customer experience and beautiful visuals that support and reinforce Woot’s vision, brand, and business objectives
  • Drive creative development and be the primary point of contact with key stakeholders on retail UX design initiatives, strategy and implementation
  • Partner closely with cross-functional teams to define feature requirements via empirical online data, usability findings, market research, and proven UCD principles
  • Provide thought leadership in architecting a near and long term design vision for customer discovery, consideration and purchase from Woot.com
  • Provide creative direction to other designers on the team and external creative partners
  • Understand and respond to performance data, steering the strategy of future creative directions
  • Define patterns and advocate for consistency, while fostering inspiration innovation

Basic Qualifications:

  • An online portfolio that demonstrates your ability to turn ideas into a strong and unique creative vision. Please add your online portfolio link at the top of your resume when you apply.
  • 5+ years of relevant professional experience as a creative lead on UX Design projects
  • Ability to successfully present designs to senior business leaders
  • Ability to manage and refine the workflow, design and approval processes
  • Ability to work cross-team and synthesize feedback and input from merchandising, marketing, product management and development
  • Experience managing multiple projects at one time to make aggressive deadlines
  • Fluency in English required
  • Expertise in current and emerging front-end technologies, UX trends, and best practices
  • Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash, Freehand or Illustrator, Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS coding

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Team player with refined and assertive leadership skills – ability to positively influence change through inspirational design, solid rationale, supporting data and diplomacy
  • Relentless desire for innovation balanced with business needs and customer expectations
  • Knowledge of information architecture, usability, and e-commerce design best practices
  • Expertise in using data to driven design improvements (usability testing, A/B testing, and site-metrics)
  • Unwavering attention to detail with an acute awareness that everything counts
  • Illustration, prototyping and/or multimedia skills preferred
  • Desire and ability to work in a fast-paced environment
  • Solid written/verbal communication and collaborative skills

Software Dev Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

You're one part Captain Kirk, one part Han Solo, a quarter Captain Sheridan and a bit… aw, who are we kidding? The truth is, you're going to be managing a team of developers. Developers who work at a fast pace in a dynamic environment, trying to think of and close every loophole before their stuff goes live. Of course they're going to nitpick at everything you say!

The right candidate will know how to keep this rag-tag band of (extremely talented) misfits working as a solid team. You'll be hands-on, working to build Woot's new e-commerce platform using Amazon services, and possibly have to take away their tiny helicopters if they act up. Consider this your chance to be an IRL Dungeon Master. Except you can't make the city watch appear the moment your PCs act up.

In this job, you’ll learn: that, left to their own devices, developers are the most powerful agent of entropy the world has ever seen.

Intangible benefits: it'll be really easy to get people to come over when you want to have a beer and board game night.

Potential hazards: it'll be really hard to get people to leave your beer and board game night until there's a clear winner.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the well-respected leader of a different super-team from an alternate Earth now trying to fit in. Possibly you'd change your costume.

Worst part of the job: Finding a new costume. Like, do you wear a wig and fishnets? Or a strange helmet? Or something with a lot of pouches that'll only last until the next reboot?

Make sure you bring: something cool to put on your desk. The cooler it is, the more power you'll have. For example, a ten foot high Galactus statue will beat a two inch Boba Fett, every time.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop the long-term strategy for your programs and translate that into an achievable road map/action plan
  • Responsible for the overall systems development life cycle
  • Management and execution against project plans and delivery commitments
  • Management of departmental resources, staffing, mentoring, and enhancing and maintaining a best-of-class engineering team
  • Work closely with the engineers to architect and develop the best technical design and approach
  • Report on status of development, quality, operations, and system performance to management

Basic Qualifications:

  • BS in Computer Science or related discipline
  • 7+ years' experience in software development
  • 4+ years’ experience with managing a software development team
  • Technical expertise including fluency in several popular programming languages
  • Experience shipping one or more large-scale, highly available internet applications, client-server programming, load balancing, network security, and internet protocols

Preferred Qualifications:

  • E-commerce development experience
  • Experience taking a lead role in building complex software systems that have been successfully delivered
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
  • Experience communicating with users, other technical teams, and senior management to collect requirements, describe software product features, technical designs, and product strategy
  • Experience mentoring a team of highly talented software engineers
  • E-commerce development experience
  • Experience taking a lead role in building complex software systems that have been successfully delivered
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations

Software Developer
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

If there's one thing software developers like to do, it's write subtle romantic poetry. So get ready, potential applicant! You're entering a realm that few today dare to enter! Of course, in between the sonnets and the odes, you'll probably be asked to be responsible for development and maintenance of the business systems software used for backend order fulfillment, reporting, and various tools used to run the Woot business. But c'mon, we know that's just for show, right? What a tech company wants these days is a new way to say "I love you."

In this job, you'll learn: that moon/june/spoon is frowned upon by corporate.

Intangible benefits: none, save the touch of a silken hand against your sapphire cheek upon which the tears of love have grown hard and cold. And sometimes the people in your row will snap their fingers in approval.

Potential hazards: when someone gets all in your face like "Yo, that ain't no spondee I ever heard of!" and you've got to throw down to protect your rep.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: one of the yellow narration boxes at the top of the page.

Worst part of the job: Trying to figure out which part of this job description is telling the truth. After all, software development is about solving puzzles that might seem hard to decipher. See? We know what we're doing sometimes.

Make sure you bring: a copy of Ulysses for your shelf. You don't ever have to read it, just owning it will make you look smart enough. If anyone asks how you liked it, just bluff. They probably haven't read it either.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Generally requires a B.S. degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics
  • 4+ years experience in software engineering
  • Has an understanding of best practices for essential software engineering areas, including testing, software version control, software development cycle, code documentation, build and deployment issues

Worst part of the job: Oh, you'll find out. You'll find out. Ahahaha! AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
