Engineering Manager, Memory & Persistence (Dublin)

Etsy, Dublin, IE

Peer-to-peer e-commerce website focused on handmade or vintage items and supplies


Etsy is seeking an Engineering Manager to join our team.

As Etsy grows, the technical infrastructure and platforms need to continue to enable Etsy's growth while providing innovative ways to improve our systems. The Memory and Persistence team along with the Provisioning team are tasked with making that happen and we're looking for someone to lead these two critical teams.

Etsy is actively preparing to move systems to a cloud provider, and both of these teams play key roles in this work. This is an exciting and revolutionary time to join Etsy as engineering embarks on its next generation work, offering an opportunity to be part of the teams that run the infrastructure that connects millions of sellers and customers

This is a full-time position based in Etsy’s Dublin, Ireland office.

About the Teams
The Memory and Persistence team is a fluid and dynamic group. We work tightly with all of the development groups to bring a "full-stack" perspective on how the application and infrastructure are working together to provide availability and performance while still allowing for the great amount of change we want.

The Provisioning team exists to enable every Etsy engineer to access and manage computing resources through tooling, frameworks and APIs.

The teams strive for situational awareness; we know that failure happens, and sometimes we even cause them to happen on purpose. Being nice is a requirement. You will likely learn more about collaboration at Etsy than you have anywhere else.
