Software Architect - Product Availability

Boston, United States

Wayfair is looking for a Software Architect to join the .NET development team that owns the complex, evolving logic that drives a simple purpose: telling a customer when we think we can deliver their order. This is, fundamentally, a prediction. And making that prediction requires synthesizing information from thousands of warehouses, thousands of carriers terminals, and hundreds of thousands of customer locations. And we have to make the prediction in under 10 milliseconds.

The team is looking for people to help our ongoing efforts to scale, including web service traffic (100M requests/day), supply chain data processing in SQL (100M rows/day), and event-driven messaging systems generating searchable predictions for a large catalog (10M products). Our ideal engineer has a background working with complex data structures, distributed systems, and fast iteration in an agile environment. We are looking a motivated person who enjoys innovation, and wants to lead and mentor a fast-growing team.

Current projects:

  • Expanded delivery predictions for weekend, same-day, and international carrier networks
  • Dynamically routing orders based on optimized inventory replenishment strategies
  • Packing algorithms to support product bundling and opportunities for reduced ship costs

An ideal candidate has:

  • Expertise in .NET (or Java and a willingness to learn .NET)
  • 7-10+ years of relevant experience
  • Desire to mentor and lead teams
  • SQL DB design, advanced query writing, and general optimization skills
  • Experience with high-performance caching systems (Redis, Memcache)
  • Ability to think creatively to identify paths to quick, then scalable solutions
  • Good attitude and sense of humor

Nice to haves (the more the better):

  • Supply chain experience
  • Recent experience with PHP or JavaScript
  • Experience in an Agile/continuous-development environment
  • Advanced .NET and server-side troubleshooting
  • SQL performance tuning skills
  • A passion for technology and staying current with technologies
  • A Master’s degree in Computer Science or related area
