Software Engineer, Frontend Framework 883 views

Job description

Shopping for the home is often overwhelming. Wayfair is an extreme case – it’s visited by two million people daily, shopping across more than 10 million products: Home furnishings, décor, home improvement, housewares, and more. Our software engineering teams work hard to conceal the complexity of this experience. Every customer should come away feeling like they’ve found the perfect item for them. Shopping for the home should be exciting, and we’re the team that makes that happen.
The Frontend Architecture team works with engineers throughout the organization to innovate on our frontend platform, and create an environment in which developers can build delightful user interfaces for our customers. We build out features using React with Redux and GraphQL, and a custom Sass framework that handles theming for our six brands and three international sites across all platforms. Frontend Platform engineers at Wayfair are JavaScript specialists that build the platform which powers the user interfaces for our five e-commerce websites seen by over two million customers every day.

We are looking for experienced software engineers to join the team of developers that build Wayfair’s frontend development platform. The Frontend Framework team drives the vision for how we leverage the React.js and GraphQL powered framework at Wayfair, with ownership areas such as: data management libraries (Redux, Apollo, etc.), react router support, patterns for next-generation React features, JavaScript testing patterns, and more.

What You’ll Do

  • Write scalable and performant JavaScript for shared, framework-level UI components used by hundreds of engineers across the organization
  • Collaborate on standards and best practices for developing decoupled UI apps, powered by webpack and React.js
  • Create documentation for our internal frontend docs site, demonstrating patterns and best practices for building and testing React.js applications leveraging libraries such as react-router, Redux, and Apollo
  • Contribute to and help drive decisions, initiatives, and coding patterns throughout the larger Frontend team at Wayfair
  • Identify and deliver solutions that push the boundaries of our UI framework to achieve platform and business goals
  • Work closely with the other Frontend Core teams to expand the capabilities of our UI platform

Recent Projects:

  • SSR Application Wrapper Project: Adding application-level features to server-side rendered pages previously required changes to the rendering server. This API allows us to extend directly from the application space without touching the server.
  • Isomorphic Module Loading Project: Enabling developers to load features of the React Application on-demand in both the client and server(node) environment, seamlessly
  • Awesome Learning: Team-based, self-directed learning tracks for frontend tech mastery built around deliberate practice.

How You’ll Make an Impact:

  • Help make decisions that influence how customers shop at Wayfair
  • Be part of a team writing code that is seen by millions of customers a day
  • Be a part of the team that is leading the market in delivering the most delightful customer online shopping experience for home furnishings in a quickly changing landscape

Who you are:

  • A graduate of a computer science or engineering related degree program with 2+ years of relevant industry experience, OR have 4+ years of equivalent industry experience
  • Have a deep knowledge of JavaScript and its ecosystem
  • Experience developing large React applications
  • Understanding of JavaScript state management libraries, such as Redux, MobX, or Apoll
