The Scribe Platform is composed of platforms aimed at empowering every Wayfair team with
high quality data. It accomplishes this through ingesting, organizing and activating data in a
scalable fashion. The platform was born out of an original mission to produce insights that would
power a single view of the customer for far reaching purposes from personalization to predicting
behaviors to analytics. Today, those same tools have grown to ingest any type of data (product,
customer, order, etc) in real-time, support any type of prediction (e.g. shipping times, best email
send time, class affinity) and activate that data in all the ways teams desire to consume it.

  • Identify and implement new tools, technologies, and processes to accelerate developer velocity within our teams.
  • Promote a culture of engineering excellence, up-leveling the technical expertise of engineers
  • Contribute to the technical development of engineers by mentoring and coaching them through learning opportunities.

What You'll Need:

  • Broad experience architecting and implementing robust, scalable, distributed web applications and event-based systems (10+ years or equivalent track-record).
  • Track-record of bringing new technical innovations to production environments
  • Track-record of being a hands-on developer efficiently building technically sound systems.
  • Superior organizational and analytical skills with hypothesis- driven problem solving and turning data into actionable insights
  • Excellent communication skills with demonstrated experience driving teams forward and ability to influence decisions
  • Experience with public cloud reference architectures and services, such as Google Cloud Platform or AWS
