Company Description

Etsy is the global marketplace for unique and creative goods. We build, power, and evolve the tools and technologies that connect entrepreneurs with buyers around the world.

If so, this could be the perfect match.

More about the role:

  • Collaborate with distributed teammates in the US, Mexico and Ireland (including Rasmus Lerdorf, the original author of PHP!)
  • Analyze coding patterns, library usage, and infrastructure to identify paths to issues opportunities for optimization
  • Work closely with product and infrastructure teams to ensure that code running in production is of a high quality and follows industry standards
  • Enrich the functionality of in-house and open source tools for static analysis, debugging, testing, and profiling PHP applications


  • Strong knowledge of C / C++
  • Experience with maintaining and incrementally modernizing large codebases
  • Successful track record of creating, updating, and maintaining tools for developers
  • Ability to dig deeper into system internals to solve problems across multiple components
  • Proven track record of partnering across many teams to drive adoption of new technologies or practices
  • Experience with mentoring, knowledge sharing and education at the team and organizational level
  • Bonus: Familiarity with PHP
