Title: Software Engineering Intern
Company: Etsy, Inc.
Contact: Jason Greenhouse <jgreenhouse@xxxxxxxx> 212-555-ETSY
Hiring for: Intern/Co-op
Description:
The Software Engineering Intern will join the ranks to take on practical
problems in a world-class engineering environment while being mentored
by some of the most talented engineers in the industry.

Etsy is on the look out for the next generation of technology leaders to
take on projects that will impact our 30 million users across the
planet. We have opportunities to join teams working on public facing
features as well as dev tools and core infrastructure at our HQ in
Brooklyn, NY.

About the Team

The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, good software
and systems designs are works of art, and that the work we do is part of
larger creative culture represented by the hundreds of thousands of
inspired artists and designers who make Etsy such a wondrous
marketplace. We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can
do big things. We also believe in the right tool for the job, not
language-as-religion. Our current systems run PHP, Java, Python, Ruby,
Solr/Lucene, Postgres, MySQL, and more. Check out our Engineering
blog:http://codeascraft.etsy.com/

About the Job

You'll be helping us build new and awesome experiences for people
shopping on Etsy. We're looking for full-stack engineers - you'll be
dealing with the MySQL, Memcache, PHP, and front-end stuff
(HTML/CSS/JS). The teams working on each feature are pretty small (a few
engineers, a designer, and a product manager), so there's a lot of
meaningful collaboration.

Because we're making user-facing features, we believe strongly in
collecting and analyzing numerical data to help guide our decisions. To
that end, you'll be able to use our in-house analytics tools to gather
information and gain insights. You'll also be able to use Etsy's
Continuous Deployment architecture to push code to production whenever
you please (and you'll probably push on your first day here).

About You

Youâre tenacious, driven and have a passion for learning. You love to
collaborate and have meaningful interactions with everyone you meet. You
enjoy the rush of taking a risk and the satisfaction of having an
experiment work as you expected. You believe in the connective power of
Etsyâs peer-to-peer marketplace, and want to create the code that will
make it stronger.

You will be successful in this role if you:
Want to make a meaningful impact on the world around you
Have excellent written and verbal communication skills
Can be autonomous and self-driven
Get inspired on a daily basis, think of new ideas and like to share them
with others
Like food
Take pleasure in making things, momentum, chaos, vibrancy, spontaneity,
debate and silence

Whatâs Next

If you're interested in joining the team at Etsy, please send a cover
letter along with your resume telling us what inspires you about Etsy
and why you think you are perfect for the team (resumes without a cover
letter will not be considered). If you contribute to an open source
project, write a blog, or practice another craft besides software
engineering, that means something to us, weâd love to hear about it when
you write!
