About Wayfair

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 complexityof 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.

Frontend Auxiliary Engineering is a high-leverage team of experienced frontend engineers that embraces startup culture as we serve hundreds of developers within Wayfair. We are vocal internal advocates for testing, pragmatism, community, and the immense benefits of a low-friction development environment. We build out all of our 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.

What You'll Do

* Embed on a rotating basis with various product teams throughout the organization to create a culture of quality via coaching, pair programming, architectural design sessions, and code review
* Author and contribute to internal libraries that emphasize intuitive interfaces and composability
* Employ frontend industry best practices with regard to web standards, component breakdown, accessibility, cross-device design and code considerations, page rendering, and browser performance

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:

* Enable literally thousands of developers to build better products
* Write code that is seen by millions of customers a day
* Partner with engineering teams to promote engineering best practices and help grow junior developers

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, with experience developing large React applications
* Have an understanding of JavaScript state management libraries, such as Redux, MobX, or Apollo
* Have a humble learner's mind with an eagerness for teaching and being taught, and a sense of gratification from helping others
