Business Intelligence Engineer
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

When you apply to be a BIE
it's not about the shirt and tie
It's not about the way you'll try
to measure data with no lie
It's more about the way you'll fly
right through reports that are stacked high
and automate so any guy
or gal can easily decry
the work of those who did not try
to interact, assess, provide
details of which are a far cry
from companies without a BIE.

Also you'll probably be expected to have a rudimentary understanding of rhyme scheme. That's negotiable, though.

In this job, you’ll learn: that we rarely go to Dubai, even though it really would have fit that above paragraph nicely.

Intangible benefits: sometimes someone will bring a pie. That's always nice.

Potential hazards: only on the days we fry. Don't stand too close to the chef or you'll get splattered!

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one with the bow-and-arrow and a purple and blue costume. C'mon. Don't make us say it.

Worst part of the job: there's no good place to go nearby if you decide to get a chai.

Make sure you bring: a rhyming dictionary.

Operations Supervisor - Shirt.Woot
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

Everybody wears shirts, don't they? And in your role as Shirt Operations Supervisor, you'll be in charge of supplying everybody with the shirts they need to survive. You'll also have to keep a positive work environment, gather all your associates and keep them complying with company policies, meet all your key performance measures and metrics, and make sure information flows up and down the shirt chain. Also you'll need to be ready to handle direct supervision of FC associates and all aspects of Shirt production. Can you do all that while still wearing a t-shirt? CAN YOU????

In this job, you’ll learn: that the process of making a t-shirt is a lot more complex than you'd think! For example, there's a thirty-five minute ritual every time you need to add more ink. You've got to wear azure robes and chant like that dance song with the monks in it. You remember that monk song? Man, that monk song was so great.

Intangible benefits: The ink changing ritual doesn't count as personal time. That's thirty-five minutes on the clock!

Potential hazards: If you mess up the ritual, the printer comes to life and smashes up the whole building. Yeah. That's what you get when you buy a cheap printer from a second-hand cursed item store.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: watching their adventures on TV because you can't go out into space to fight aliens when you've got to be on call for the ink changing ritual.

Worst part of the job: The printer doesn't brush its teeth when dormant, so when it comes to life, it has the most horrible breath. Seriously. Practice that ritual, you do NOT want to smell printer breath.

Make sure you bring: just your charming self. Also, if you know anybody selling an uncursed printer, we might be interested.

Associate Vendor Manager, Kids
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

People give the associate grief for having a name that makes them seem like a sidekick, and they shouldn't! Because the sidekick isn't actually a sidekick. The sidekick is just a slightly younger version of the hero who is paid a bit less but is likely just learning the ropes from the hero so the sidekick can get promoted to do the hero's job on day. Trust us, that comes up more often than you'd think in an associate position.

Like, say, suppose you were an Associate Vendor Manager for Kids.Woot. What's next on your path? Well, you'd want to be a Vendor Manager, and then maybe a Boss Vendor Manager, and then maybe the CEO Of Vendor Managers and so on. If you knew that were your path, you could put up with a few jokes about being a sidekick, right? We hope so. We hope so.

In this job, you’ll learn: that you can't close a deal by throwing a custom boomerang at the other party. Not even in the big city.

Intangible benefits: your red shirts will go great with your green pants! Well, "pants."

Potential hazards: Like we said. "Pants."

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the young wonder who grows up to be actually cooler than the person they learned from! Even in some alternate universe drawn by Frank Miller.

Worst part of the job: when the Editor In Chief of the comic company you work for tries to bump you off in a dumb ol' plot twist that nobody likes. But don't worry! You'll survive that thanks to the support of your fans!

Make sure you bring: an interest in all the stuff that kids are going to want to buy. Even if your focus is more on that other company. You know, the one that makes all the good movies.

Responsibilities:

  • Leverage strong project management skills, with full ownership over key projects and initiatives in 2015
  • Manage customer-facing detail page content, execute against larger project initiatives, and drive process improvements for the entire team
  • The potential to own a portion of the Kids P & L

Senior Vendor Manager
(Woot Inc, Carrollton, TX)

Right now there's a young billionaire putting on his rubber mouse suit for the first time. Right now, there's a young reporter picking out the ideal pair of red underwear and tucking his glasses in his cape. And what do they have in common? That's right. Neither of them know how to make a deal to save their life. Because one guy inherited a billion dollars and has the mindset of a six year old while the other doesn't need to eat and can stop bullets with his chest. When did they ever learn how to do anything important?

But you, well, you learned the hard way. By earning it. You know how to close an impossible deal on nothing but charm and style. You're able to buy some great what-nots for the home and pass them right along to the customer who will then gobble it all down like that guy who dresses like a hawk gobbles down worms. Yeah, that's right. A guy who dresses as a hawk. A guy like that knows how to close a deal too. You ever tried to get out of a parking ticket while dressed as a hawk? You gotta REALLY work at that!

In this job, you’ll learn: that closing a deal is really just opening a need for some paperwork. Which you might have to enter before you can get to the selling part. Such is life.

Intangible benefits: you'll occasionally get to visit Las Vegas! Won't that be fun!

Potential hazards: by "Las Vegas" we mean a convention center with florescent lighting, no WiFi, and five dollar hot dogs that can't be expensed for some reason.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the hawk guy. Or hawk gal. And let's be honest here, if you're comfortable walking around in a hawk costume nobody's first question is going to be "so what gender do you identify as?"

Worst part of the job: the complex jumpstep choreography required to win the monthly dance competitions.

Make sure you bring: your A-game. Yeah. YEAH. 110%, BABY! YEAH! YEAH! NO! NOTHING CAN BE 110%! WE SAID YOUR A-GAME! A-GAMES INCLUDE A PROPER UNDERSTANDING OF PERCENTAGES AND MATH! You better do better than this on your interview or you'll be back on the street in a hawk mask again.

Responsibilities:

  • Researching, analyzing, and structuring deals to perform at optimal levels
  • Performing quantitative analysis leveraging both industry and historical sales data to determine which deals to buy, optimizing for the best customer and vendor experience, while driving profitable business growth

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor Degree plus 5+ years of relevant experience in retail or e-commerce desired

Inventory Planner II
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

Intangible benefits: the feeling that you should be sitting at a lovely wooden desk, surrounded by leather-bound books, with a view of the river through perfectly cleaned windows.

Potential hazards: we stress the word "feeling" in that sentence. In actuality you'll probably get to share a cubicle with a stranger.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the mysterious figure that's always emerging from the shadows to talk about how the President sent you to assemble a team.

Worst part of the job: GUESS WHO GETS TO FIGHT THAT DRAGON WE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED

Vendor Manager, Electronics
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

Consumer Electronics is a hard area. It used to be something very specific. Now it could mean almost damn near anything. Your headphones might have a Bluetooth chip inside them. Your coffee cup might be WiFi capable. See that coffee table? It's got 500 MB of RAM and a USB port! So the person we're after here is going to know the difference between the GOOD consumer electronics (say, a stereo receiver) and the HORRID consumer electronics (say, a light-up bobblehead version of the bass player for the third version of King Crimson) so they can steer our sales accordingly.

In this job, you’ll learn: that the man's name was Gordon Haskell. You're welcome, candidate. YOU'RE WELCOME.

Intangible benefits: the warm feeling that comes when your team wins the local King Crimson trivia night!

Potential hazards: only if you start talking about prog rock with the guy who writes the job descriptions. Hoo boy, can he go on.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: we gotta be honest. You'd probably be one of the sideline heroes who only ever appeared when some writer wanted to prove how nerdy they were. You'd be the Earth-2 Air Wave of Woot. But hey, more time to do your day job, right? You're not fighting alien death machines in an office job!

Worst part of the job: the alien death machines you'll have to fight in your office job. We kinda lied to you back there. Sorry about that.

Make sure you bring: oh, right, you'll probably need some knowledge of consumer electronics too. It can't all just be prog rock and death machines. It just can't!

Responsibilities:

  • Building executive-level vendor partnerships with new and existing vendors
  • Engaging with vendors to pitch the Woot value proposition and gather insight and feedback into how Woot can be their overstock solution
  • Analyzing large amounts of deal performance data to identify the attributes that determine a good deal

Chief Merchandising Officer
(Woot Inc, Carrollton, TX)

YOU want to chart a company's course. YOU want to report to a CEO. YOU like driving business models that range from "Print On Demand" to "Wine Sales" and "Wholesale Marketplace." YOU want to lead our Project Management team down the garden path and back again. Maybe you also have some hobbies on top of all that. Sure, whatever. We're not really gonna pry.

What we ARE going to do is ask you if you're an analytical, solution-focused owner with a proven track record of obsessing over the customer experience and delivering results by building and developing top performing organizations, keeping the team focused on the right objectives, creating and/or improving business processes, developing productive, cross-functional relationships internally and with external partners, and able to construct amazingly long business sentences like this one right here that's just ending. If you answer yes, you might be able to pick up the five direct reports, and a total team of 50+ who are ready to find a new CMO they can call their own. Won't you please consider their feelings? Apply now.

In this job, you’ll learn: that merchandising a deals site is sort of like punching a hot bowl of pudding: it sounds easy at first, but then you're suddenly covered in hot pudding and it really burns but you can't get any of it off your knuckles and you start screaming and no one will help you because hey, you're a screaming lunatic covered in pudding, why would they make the effort? So, to recap, it's a unique skill set.

Intangible benefits: If you choose, you can strut down the hall like a Roman General, knowing you're at the head of a team working every day to make you look good.

Potential hazards: Roman Generals sometimes needed a guy to walk behind them and whisper "remember thou art mortal" so they didn't get too cocky. So, you know, balance.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: one of the heavy hitters that would absolutely have their own book! But that also means you've got a really messed-up continuity. Possibly spanning multiple Earths.

Worst part of the job: Spanning multiple Earths. Do you REALLY want to find out that the Earth-5 you is a hedgehog in fishnets? Because that's always within the realm of possibility once you start looking too hard.

Make sure you bring: a functioning sense of humor, please. That's like 80% of our corporate culture!

Responsibilities:

  • Mentoring and developing the management team to develop challenging, but achievable, goals and identify the appropriate input targets required to deliver the goals.
  • Develop top performing team members and make great hiring decisions to cultivate bench strength
  • Develop and execute strategic plans for each business team

  • 5+ years’ experience hiring and managing a team
  • 5+ years’ experience in negotiations and vendor/project management

  • 5+ years in the online channel with e-commerce experience
  • SQL/ETL skills
  • A proven track record in leading and transforming highly effective organizations
  • Superior analytical and quantitative skills, comfortable with complex financial data
  • Track record of results, setting strategy, and running a large volume and high profile business
  • Experience in vendor negotiations, pricing and promotion, inventory management, and product development
  • Strong track record of recruiting, hiring and developing talent
  • High threshold for working in an ambiguous, fast packed environment – figuring it out and adapting as you go
  • Ability to operate simultaneously and effectively in both tactical and strategic modes
  • A willingness to roll up sleeves to get it done

As a level 3 warehouse fulfillment associate, you'll be expected to have that special something, a flair that makes you stand out from your comrades.

Dependent on business needs, the position may require the Associate to be willing and able to work on powered equipment such as forklifts or scissor lifts.

In this job, you’ll learn: that being part of a team sometimes requires you to lead.

Intangible benefits: when the sinister Cardinal seeks an ally in his treason, he will come to you first. Turn him down, please. No good will come from his machinations.

Potential hazards: you'll be the first among equals! So people will prolly blame you before they blame all the other equals. Sorry about that.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: one of a small group with a big fancy hat and cool boots!

Worst part of the job: when you get asked if you've ever met that hunchback in Paris. Right author, wrong genre.

Make sure you bring: a love of forklifts. And, of course, your fellow citizens.

Responsibilities:

  • Work with and/or around moving mechanical parts

Technical Recruiter
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

Before you can hire, you must recruit. Which leaves us in a weird metaphysical state, because we're trying to hire a recruiter. How does this work? Do you fill the position without knowing how to recruit, then hope the person you recruit knows how to hire? If they do, do they immediately hire a more qualified replacement for themselves? Or do they hire other people and then combust into a magical puff of smoke? We don't know the answers to this question. Maybe you do. If so, don't waste your talents on a philosophy degree! Head right to us and start technically recruiting!

If you can demonstrate excellent research and hunting skills via internet, phone or other channels. If you have a reputation for being exceptional at candidate generation, organization, assessment. If you possess strong verbal and written communication skills, have an ability to prioritize their time, demonstrate pushback and a sense of urgency, and understand the value of providing amazing customer service. And if you know that all those periods should maybe have been commas. You might just be the person we need to help us fill this position we're trying to fill. The position from which all other positions come.

In this job, you’ll learn: that, sadly, you can't get rid of people you hate by pointing at them and yelling I UNRECRUIT YOU, BEGONE

Intangible benefits: once you recruit, you're golden. You don't have to do all the hard stuff like "interviews" or "hiring" or "paying people."

Potential hazards: only if you send through too many people who aren't hired. That's when people will start asking questions about what you're doing up there at the top of the chain.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: one of those mystical enegimatic types that says stuff like I KNEW IT WOULD OCCUR IN THIS MANNER and LET NOT YE EYES BE CLOUDED WITH THE AFFAIRS OF THE BEYOND, MORTAL, FOR SUCH IS MY WORRY.

Worst part of the job: that the unrecruiting thing doesn't work. Wouldn't that be SO COOL if it did?

Make sure you bring: a small ceramic cat that you can pet in meetings before saying "Yes... make it such..." in a mysterious voice. It'll add a little flavor to your day.

Responsibilities:

  • Communicate with Managers to determine and anticipate staffing needs and changes
  • Implement and enforce consistency with recruiting policies and procedures
  • Manage and track all internal postings for opportunities
  • Develop sourcing strategies, plans and pipelines
  • Determine most effective source and advertise openings
  • Review and screen all resumes and applications
  • Participate in recruiting events such as job fairs and other events
  • Facilitate hiring meeting
  • Negotiate compensation packages and closing candidates
  • Track metrics for all recruiting activities

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent post-secondary degree
  • Experience building sourcing plans for a client group
  • 2+ years recruiting experience
  • Experience with online sourcing techniques

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Skilled at partnering with hiring teams to build effective sourcing, assessment, and closing approaches with an ability to manage customer/partner expectations
  • Strong analytics, with ability to create, measure, and scale the right workflow between candidates, hiring managers, and the recruiting team
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong mentoring skills preferred
  • Mix of agency and corporate recruiting experience a plus

Sr. SDE
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

Imagine being a robot. Not some boring servant robot, but a high-end monster-fighting giant robot with fists that shoot and big horns that glow with energy. And imagine you had a bunch of alien high masters in robes that depended on you to save their children from threats. ARISE TOBOT-Z they would say, and you would, and it'd be awesome. This is what it means to be a Senior SDE at Woot.com, in a very broad sense. More or less. You know, metaphorically.

Much like TOBOT-Z you'll be handling things that directly impact and empower customers on a massive scale. Unlike TOBOT-Z you'll be handling website platforms and not mutated turtles with laser eyes. You'll also be busy with front-end and back-end development, but take heart! You'll never have to fight a cursed wizard from the past and his dinosaur minons! Poor TOBOT-Z ends up facing him like once a year. He's a really popular bad guy, you see.

In this job, you’ll learn: that you actually can link a giant robot with a human through the use of magic bracelets. It takes a little work, but it's totally possible.

Intangible benefits: it's a total rush when you yell TOOOOOBOT-ZEEEEEEE and swing your hands around into a battle position.

Potential hazards: if you do that in a business review meeting, it's gonna get really really quiet for a second and your boss will clear their throat.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: well, DUH.

Worst part of the job: when you've got a non-flexible code review about to happen and yet Queen Doomzala is tearing up the Space Needle yelling BRING ME TOBOT-Z.

Make sure you bring: a backup robot of your human identity who knows how to act in a code review for when you need to sneak out. That'll also help when you just want to go to the lake for a day too.

Responsibilities:

  • Prioritize well, communicate clearly, and have a consistent track record of delivery.
  • Balance creative engineering with high quality and customer focus.
  • Use Scrum and test-driven development to meet business objectives, build code continuously, and refactor systems as needed.
  • Use ASP.NET MVC and C# to build our website for desktop and mobile.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • 6+ years professional experience in software development
  • Strong understanding of computer science fundamentals, including object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis
  • Proficiency in, at least, one object oriented language such as C#, C++ or Java
  • Solid knowledge of database structures and tools
  • Experience leading or mentoring other developers

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience crafting automated unit, integration, functional, and regression tests
  • Experience refactoring code and evolving architectures
  • Experience with distributed computing and enterprise-wide systems
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
  • Experience in communicating with users, other technical teams, and management to collect requirements, describe software product features, and technical designs
  • Knowledge of supply chain or fulfillment systems and terminology
  • Experience developing RESTful APIs with ASP.NET MVC

They say if a butterfly flaps in Tibet, it changes the wind in Seattle. We say THAT'S TOO LONG TO WAIT. And that's why we go out and buy a fan, so we don't have to wait on some stupid butterfly to wake up and flap. We alter the wind IMMEDIATELY. BECAUSE THAT'S THE SORT OF PEOPLE WE ARE!!!

Are you like us? Do you enjoy working on challenging problems that directly impact and empower customers at a massive scale? Are you interested in innovating and engineering services and website platforms that power our business operations? Are you sick to death of empowering some no-good butterfly?

If so, maybe this is your kinda place, yeah? Yeah. YEAH. YEAH.

In this job, you’ll learn: that Mr. Tibetan Butterfly isn't so bad, really. He's just a butterfly trying to get by in the world. In fact, you two would really get along. Maybe you should go get a few drinks together some weeknight. Watch the game. You know, talk it out.

Intangible benefits: A chance to build great software for customers. Have you ever touched software? Huh? If you said yes, you're WRONG. You touched the device on which the software is stored. Just like a story. Or a poem. Or song. Or your memories of childhood.

Potential hazards: If you start talking about poems and songs and your memories of childhood too much, someone's gonna punch you in the arm. So just be warned.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: yeah, funny thing. There aren't yet a lot of superheroes who got their powers after being bitten by a mobile app. But the moment a hero like that shows up? That'll be you. That'll be you all the way.

Worst part of the job: when the butterfly shows up drunk and starts ranting about how people don't take him seriously as a weather controlling device. He'll try to convince you that HAARP is just twenty billion butterflies strapped to a board. Just smile and nod. Smile and nod.

Make sure you bring: a custom printed purple shirt that reads "I got tricked into wearing this by the guy who writes the job descriptions." Wear it. Show it off to everyone. They'll totally be checking for it too. snicker

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • 3+ years professional experience in software development
  • Strong understanding of computer science fundamentals, including object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis

Art Director, Shirt.Woot

Art is what divides us from the beasts. That's why we have so much art ABOUT the beasts. That rule also applies to Shirt.Woot as well. You see it in action each and every day.

Senior Vendor Manager, Tools & Garden
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

WHAT A COINCIDENCE THAT'S EXACTLY THE PERSON WE'RE LOOKING FOR HERE TODAY!

You'll be an individual interested in leading collaboration and negotiation across the organization, in both the physical and virtual workspace. That's right, hero. You're going into CYBERSPACE!

Potential hazards: IF YOU DIE IN VIRTUAL REALITY YOU DIE IN REAL LIFE!!!!!

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: some kinda scientist who turned into a robot who then became human who decided to order Tools & Garden stuff. Superhero robots really end up leading boring lives in comic books, don't they? Evil robots, that's where it's at.

Worst part of the job: dealing with the evil robots who try to convince you to give up on your 9 to 5 and join them in world domination. They always take the last donut because they're evil, and that's just not fair to anyone!

Systems Engineer
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

Our website is made of tiny blocks. Not really, of course, we're just indulging in a metaphor here. Stop being so literal and let the story take you away. Okay, so. Tiny blocks.

And all these blocks, you see, they're all set up to make other fun stuff. Like, say, the Woot websites, service layers, supply-chain and warehouse management systems and the high standards we apply to our computer systems as well as our employees. You see, our little blocks need to be secure, reliable, and available, and must function at scale. In order for this to happen, our employees must be super smart, driven to serve customers, able to conceptualize all these tiny blocks interacting, and also be fun to work with!

In this job, you’ll learn: that just like Dolly Parton once said, it takes an awful lot of work to look this cheap!

Intangible benefits: they're talking about putting in a really cool salad bar downstairs!

Potential hazards: You have to go outside of the building and then re-enter through a different door in order to get to the salad bar.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: able to reconfigure yourself as though by magic due to your understanding of the secret building blocks of the universe itself.

Worst part of the job: the lack of salad bar! Seriously, we can't WAIT for that thing to open up.

Make sure you bring: vinaigrette dressing. Enough for all.

Forum Moderator
(Woot Workshop, Seattle, WA)

Like an unseen hand that slaps from the sky above, a forums mod reigns with the divine right of kings. They are in the forums, but not of the forums. A mod must be balanced, focused, honest and just. Without those features, you're not a mod. You're a rocker!

Oh, and here's a heads up: mods will be exposed to anything ranging from immature verbal assaults to terrifyingly grotesque imagery on a daily basis. Mods will also be expected to keep long and odd hours from time to time, (such as during Woot-Offs or during technical difficulties) and file daily reports about, well, stuff. Possibly even regarding the terrifyingly grotesque imagery, if it's bad enough. Think you've got what it takes? HUH?

In this job, you'll learn: that no matter what you do, someone's going to think you're power-trippin'.

Intangible benefits: you'll have the power to ban people! Which, naturally, you'll use only in extreme cases after much discussion and consideration with the other members of the team. But even still, THE BAN BUTTON! THAT'S SO COOL!!!

Potential hazards: Trolls come from dark places, and they bring some freaky .jpgs with them. The Internet ain't all talking cats, you know.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: a mysterious being of vast cosmic power who mostly does nothing but watch. But every so often…

Worst part of the job: We can't really stress it enough: those .jpgs are gonna be freaky.

Make sure you bring: An iron will, an iron fist, and an iron. You wouldn't want to look all wrinkled for your interview, now would you?

Responsibilities:

  • The ability to fill a frontline role representing the company to the customers, potential and veteran alike
  • The ability to work independently and make immediate decisions that impact the entire community.
  • The judgment to act as the first line of defense for technical, customer service, and community issues, as well as any other type of issue that may arise
  • A neutral stance is an absolute must and self-moderation skills are extremely important.
  • Individuals considering the position should be aware that they will be exposed to anything ranging from verbal assaults to mature and grotesque imagery on a daily basis

Basic Qualifications:

  • Maintaining and developing community standards
  • Contributing to, and testing, on-going community development
  • Recognizing, and addressing, threats to the well-being of the community (e.g. shilling, referral linking programs)
  • Recognizing and reporting product safety issues
  • Interdepartmental communication of issues, problems
  • Moderating and monitoring forums
  • Composing daily reports
  • Recognizing and highlighting quality contributions to the community
  • Working alongside volunteers

  • Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal communications skills

Mobile Software Development Engineer
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

Just one generation ago, we kept phone numbers in our heads. Today, we keep them in our phones. Our appointments, our notes, our fun, our LIVES, they're all locked away in those devices that never leave our side. Some people fight it. You? You embrace it. You're smart enough to recognize that the human race has been beat.

So give in! Prove to the iPhones and Androids that you ARE worthy to survive in the new handheld empire! Come join us as we build the mobile and tablet experience for Woot customer on iOS and Android. You'll work directly with project management (a.k.a a giant looming one button monolith) to define new features, translate designs into shipped applications, and bring the full Woot experience to the world of the mobile. And on that day, when the mobiles rise up and the mere flesh-creatures are crushed beneath proprietary Lightning cables, you will ride a golden chariot at the right hand of the single button from which all actions begin.

In this job, you’ll learn: That being passionate about providing an exceptional customer experience is the only thing saving you from working in the mines where they find the gems for all those puzzle games.

Intangible benefits: We use Scrum and test-driven development to meet business objectives, build code continuously, and refactor systems as needed. And who doesn't love Scrum, right?

Potential hazards: Only if you get too focused on Scrum. Scrum's never going to commit to you. Get that out of your head. You knew what this was the moment you walked in the door.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one who says "I JUST NEED YOU TO BUY ME A FEW MORE SECONDS WHILE I FINISH HACKING" just as the bad guys kick in the door.

Worst part of the job: when you see Scrum with some other programmer. It's like Scrum doesn't even care that you're right there. RIGHT THERE.

Make sure you bring: your mobile device. We don't actually have one of our own, you see, and we'll probably want to borrow yours when we order pizza. Do you want pizza? Oh, hey, we forgot our wallet this morning, is there any chance that maybe you could spot us a couple bucks?

Basic Qualifications:

  • 3+ years professional experience in software development
  • Strong understand of computer science fundamentals, including object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis

  • Experience with developing performance tests to find trouble spots and benchmarks to ensure performance is constant or improving
  • Experience crafting automated unit, integration, functional, and regression tests for iOS and/or Android

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience developing cross-platform applications using C# and Xamarin
