Shopping for the home is often overwhelming. Wayfair is an extreme case - it's visited by two million people daily, shopping across more than 10 million products: Home furnishings, decor, home improvement, housewares, and more. Our software engineering teams work hard to conceal the complexity of this experience. Every customer should come away feeling like they've found the perfect item for them. Shopping for the home should be exciting, and we're the team that makes that happen.

Wayfair's Mobile App Platforms Team is looking for a DevOps engineer to join our multidisciplinary group in building a mobile app ecosystem that will support a growing array of new app initiatives within Wayfair, driving a variety of new experiences for home furnishing and interior design. In joining the Mobile App Platforms Team, you will be a partner driving our tooling, release, and infrastructure initiatives. You will also collaborate actively with our Mobile Developers and other enterprise engineering teams to help us release stable and performant code safely and quickly. Together, we will drive Wayfair's evolution into pushing rich native apps as the next generation of consumer experiences for our global markets. Are you engaged by automating processes for rapidly growing teams? Do you want to continuously craft smarter ways to work together? Do you love building tools that excite and delight your developer colleagues? If so, then we'd love to talk to you.

What will your role be?

  • Develop tools and processes to support weekly app releases for a global Android development team with a diverse and growing app footprint
  • Apply your experiences in infrastructure or CI/CD with a team of Java and Kotlin developers to extend our efforts in effective mobile devops.
  • Lead a key area such as app performance or build times or test automation and collaborate with engineers outside of mobile to solve problems in this area across all of Wayfair Engineering
  • Collaborate with our Mobile App Teams and continue to unify our efforts across all of our mobile development platforms
  • Lead efforts in evaluating, choosing, and migrating our platform tools with an eye towards scalability and parity with other DevOps teams at Wayfair

What we will be looking for:

  • 3+ years experience in developer tooling, infrastructure and/or release engineering
  • Hands-on experience with CI tools like Jenkins and/or BuildKite
  • Comfort with Git and source control systems like Gitlab and/or GitHub
  • Fluency in shell scripting on Linux and macOS
  • An interest in taking on infrastructure challenges that are particular to native mobile developers
  • A fundamental belief that well architected, fast compiling code is the foundation for a number of other healthy habits

What can be interesting but are not essential for you to have:

  • Hands-on experience with developer tooling, infrastructure and/or release engineering for mobile platforms (CircleCI, Buddybuild, Travis, etc.)
  • Hands-on experience with Docker
  • Hands-on experience in Kotlin, Java, Swift, or Objective-C
  • Experience with optimizing and supporting repository performance and codebase migration between source control systems
