Senior Software Engineer, Internal API Platforms

The Internal API Platforms team's mission is to help our internal development groups identify the need for, implement and socialize software interfaces within Wayfair's diverse technology stacks. The goal of the team's efforts is to accelerate development and improve overall product quality by enabling related groups to work independently with the confidence that a provided interface will (a) work, and (b) continue to work. The team's approach is not 'one size fits all'. The interfaces the team helps design could be a client library, a Kafka event or data stream, a GraphQL endpoint, or a RESTful web service, among others. The priority is identifying and driving towards a solution that is appropriate to the immediate problem being solved as well as how that interface may be used in the longer-term.

What You'll Do

  • Influence product development groups and scrum teams towards the design, implementation, and use of appropriate software interfaces through fact-based reasoning.

  • Implement foundational, reusable interface solutions that are designed with an operational mindset.

  • Work with other teams to analyze existing software implementations to identify areas where inserting an interface layer would improve performance and scalability.

Who You Are

  • Senior or Staff-level software engineer proficient in consensus building and influencing without given authority.

  • High level problem solver with extensive skills to support day to day issues and larger project level goals.

  • Possess an entrepreneurial mindset with the experience to know when to lean on the resources available at a large organization.

  • Builds trust with others by making solid commitments and consistently delivering on them.

What we'd love to see (but isn't required)

  • 3+ years server-side programming experience with PHP, Python, Java

  • Experience defining, implementing, and documenting software interfaces in the form of Web Services, client libraries, or messaging services

  • GraphQL experience

  • Experience with .NET Core.

  • Experience with Kubernetes, Docker or other containerization experience

  • Experience with OpenAPI or Swagger
