Job Description

At Etsy we are looking for an experienced software engineer to help build the next generation Machine Learning Platform and help us connect buyers and sellers in meaningful ways.

As a machine learning infrastructure engineer you will be responsible for designing, building and evolving the core ML Platform components and services, and working cross-functionally to support various product engineering, data engineering and data science teams as they use our platform. Do you find joy in improving the lives of data scientists using a platform and building new capabilities to support state-of-the-art machine learning? If so, this could be the perfect match.

This is a full-time position located (eventually) in Brooklyn NY, San Francisco CA or Toronto Canada, reporting to the ML Platform engineering manager. We offer flexible workplace policies that can accommodate work from home candidates who are comfortable traveling to an office location 2-3 times per week and we are open to fully remote candidates within North America.

In this role you will:

  • Design, build and evolve the core ML Platform components and services
  • Work closely with data scientists to understand their needs and optimize the platform to help them achieve their goals
  • Work cross-functionally and support various product engineering, data engineering and data science teams as they use our platform
  • Of course, this is just a sample of the kinds of work this role will require! You should assume that your role will encompass other tasks, too, and that your job duties and responsibilities may change from time to time at Etsy's discretion, or otherwise applicable with local law.

Ideally you'll bring:

  • 2+ years of experience as an engineer in machine learning and/or infrastructure engineering and a focus on writing high quality, maintainable code
  • Fluency in Python or another similar programming language
  • Experience with Docker or a similar container framework and container orchestration tools such as Kubernetes
  • A foundational understanding of machine learning
  • A growth mindset and commitment to learning
  • Strong listening skills and an ability to be mindful and transparent in your communication with others
  • A trust in and commitment to Etsy’s vision, mission and values.
