Shopping for the home should be exciting, and we're the team that makes that happen.

The Frontend Infrastructure team develops the foundation systems that enable teams to reliably build and deliver quality user interfaces. We collaborate with the Site Reliability and Developer Platforms teams in Infrastructure Engineering, as well as the Frontend Framework and Design Systems teams in Storefront, to innovate on our frontend platform, and create an environment in which developers can build delightful user interfaces for our customers.

The Frontend Infrastructure team owns our production node.js service for react.js server-side rendering, builds our JavaScript module loading and bundling tools, and implements logging and monitoring for JavaScript applications. The team primarily writes framework-level JavaScript in Node.js and client-side applications, while occasionally moving between other layers of the web stack.

We are looking for an experienced engineering leader to manage a team of high-performing engineers that build Wayfair's frontend development platform.

The Frontend Infrastructure team built our largest customer-facing Node.js service which handles React.js server-side rendering, offering GraphQL support and communicating with our application server via websockets.

  • JavaScript Automated Testing: Automated unit and integration tests are an important part of our development lifecycle. To improve the developer experience when writing tests, the Frontend Infrastructure team led the rollout of Jest and Enzyme for our JavaScript test platform, and recently, we rolled out parallelizable tests to further speed up our CI pipelines.
