Facilities Area Manager, Carrollton
(Woot Inc, Carrollton, TX)

"The Facilities Area Manager will lead a team of facilities associates and ensure a safe working environment for all." That's what's written in your job description. But what does that REALLY mean? Why, it means that if a genetically-engineered dinosaur is running loose in the building, you'll have to make sure the dinosaur drool is cleaned up, the wires torn out as the dinosaur smashes through the wall are properly removed and repaired, the emergency exits are properly marked and unblocked so that the fleeing people can escape, and finally that there's enough budget to hire the team of devil-may-care mercenaries to go in and get that damn dinosaur once and for all. And on the days without a dinosaur, you'll have easier stuff to do. It might be more boring, so just FYI on that if you really have your heart set on fighting dinosaurs.

In this job, you’ll learn: that 99% of your job will not be dinosaur related. It's just harder to catch people's eye if we focus on the preventative maintenance procedures.

Potential hazards: only if you don't do anything about the egg before it hatches. SEE INTRO PARAGRAPH.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: goin' out on a limb here, but probably a dinosaur-related hero.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the cool leader of a hard-hitting side teams. Like, you might be the one who works on a different coast from the main team, and you'd be willing to work with them, but you'd still handle crime your own way.

Facilities Manager
(Woot Inc, Carrollton, TX)

Your kitchen floor is so clean you serve dinner there, and to guests. You think nothing of calling up your friend and asking if he's done the regular monthly maintenance on his car. You scrutinize elevator certificates, you wonder how many sodas are left in the machine, and you wake up every weekend with a true joie de vivre because of all those little projects you'll be doing yourself, because you can. You never stop moving, and you never run out of anything in your home, not ever. Stop wasting those talents in the minors, kid. Woot's calling you up to be our Facilities Manager.

In this job, you’ll learn: about the secret testing site in the basement of Woot Hanger 17, where we're developing a new type of monkey that... well, we can talk further after you're hired.

Intangible benefits: you've got an excuse to demand roof access any time you feel like it. It might not seem like much, but it's a power everyone here will envy.

Potential hazards: tiny alligators in the urinals. Yeah, they look cute now, but in a year? Whoo boy.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: quietly directing alien elves on how to properly fix smashed armor and restring cosmic battle bows. But you would eventually get your own limited series after twenty years or so.

Worst part of the job: when those tiny alligators try to get back down to their sewer home and then accidentally clog up the toilets.

Make sure you bring: pockets. Lots of pockets.

Responsibilities:

  • Dedicated to supporting multi-site production by working in a safe, customer-focused manner; and must be highly self-motivated and customer-centric.
  • Develop and design solutions to difficult problems, manage outside contractors and be on call for emergencies.

Shirt Area Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

Everybody wears shirts, don't they? And in your role as Shirt Area Manager 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.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead and manage a team by training, developing, and coaching team members on a consistent basis
  • Review production cost and product quality, and assist with developing and implementing plans for efficient use of materials, machines, and labor force to establish, maintain, and enhance profitable operation

  • Maintain supplies needed for all production areas and ensure validated cost expenditures.
  • Responsible for implementing production safety programs in order to provide a safe and clean workplace for employees within the regulations of all OSHA, local, state and company regulations and policies

  • Perform other assignments as needed as directed by management

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent education
  • 2+ year of management/supervisory experience

Warehouse Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Philadelphia, PA)

Believe it or not, all those orders don't pack and ship themselves. Until we find a colony of elves who want the job, we need a human warehouse manager to successfully oversee the warehouse and distribution of Shirt orders. That's where you might come in. Your primary responsibilities include the creation/maintenance of a positive work environment, development of Woot FC associate skills, compliance by all associates with company policies and procedures, dissemination of relevant company information to all associates, and achieving key performance measures.

And possibly you'll start dreaming of shirts dancing around your head like sugarplums. Don't worry if you do. It's just part of the job.

In this job, you’ll learn: the lyrics to the Woota Loota song. Don’t worry, we won’t make you sing it all the time. Just when the children's tour group comes through.

Corporate Recruiter: Operations
(Woot Services, LLC, Philadelphia, PA)

If we had you here, maybe we wouldn't need this. Maybe before we even got to this point, you, a Recruiter working with a small team focusing on hiring talent into our operations environment (Warehouse, Digital Press Operators, etc) would already have owned the full recruiting lifecycle, from sourcing to hire. AND WE WOULD HAVE ALREADY HIRED THE PERFECT CANDIDATE BECAUSE OF YOU!

But then, if we HAD already found a candidate who could draw on the extensive knowledge of Talent Acquisition and functional areas of the business, forging dynamic relationships with business leaders, hiring managers and HR business partners... we wouldn't have this opening you're about to fill. And you seem pretty great to us. Probably you already have experience identifying and closing all levels of candidates for exempt and non-exempt positions with a reputation for being exceptional at candidate generation and general organization with strong verbal and written communication skills and an ability to prioritize your time, demonstrate push-back and a sense of urgency, and understand the value of providing amazing customer service. So maybe it's good we didn't meet you until today. Because if we met you before, we couldn't have met you now! Is that too complex? Are we getting too Doctor Who? Look, just apply for the job and we can shut up.

In this job, you’ll learn: the mystical and ancient runes upon which our internal job coding system is based. Remember to never combine "Faa'th" and "Kul'beth'a" because that opens the portal to the Ütherplane.

Intangible benefits: Each week you'll get a million dollars in imaginary currency. Of course, we can also give it to you in imaginary gold if you're worried about the imaginary market crashing. Tell us how you prefer your imaginary investments, we're happy to meet you halfway.

Potential hazards: when some new person, DESPITE the warning signs all over the place, combines "Faa'th" and "Kul'beth'a" to open the portal. When this happens, just pull the alarm and walk calmly away from any emerging tentacles. Doors will close automatically. Follow the red flashing lights to the exit and meet in the parking lot until you hear the all clear.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: wise, with a weird costume that's a strange color. Also your eyes would have no pupils. You'd say things like "No time to waste!" and "Quickly!" and "Didn't I, my friend?" as you vanished into the mist without fully explaining what just happened.

Worst part of the job: that long wait in the parking lot while security finishes stuffing tentacles back into the portal. It can take a strangely LONG time.

Make sure you bring: an interest in living in Philadelphia. That's where the job is located, you see.

Responsibilities:

  • Must be able to understand how to recruit passive candidates and possess the mentality to "profile people and gauge chemistry of candidates for fit and understand their motivation" rather than sell a role.
  • Build and maintain a network of potential candidates through pro-active market research and on-going relationship management; conducts in-depth interviews of potential candidates, demonstrating ability to anticipate hiring manager preferences through high offer-to-interview ratios.
  • Recommend ideas and strategies related to recruitment that will contribute to the long-range growth of the company, implementing any new processes and fine tuning standard processes for recruiting that fits within Amazon's mission to deliver the highest quality results to the customer.
  • Articulate in writing a plan with deliverables, timelines and a formal tracking process.

  • Self-sufficient and able to work with little direct supervision.

Senior HR Business Partner
(Woot Inc, Philadelphia, PA)

Philly is known as the City of Brotherly Love. If you're an HR person, you might already have noticed two issues with that sentence. No, we're just kidding, because we know HR people usually have a great sense of humor. That's why we want more of them to work with us now!

We're looking for a flexible and strategic HR professional who will act as a business partner for the Manager of Operations in our Philadelphia location.We'll expect you to work independently, leverage the resources and expertise of an HR team (as well as Amazon.com) to develop and deliver scalable, customer-focused HR programs and services, implement said services in a way that will ensure the program goals are accomplished while meeting the business needs, and occasionally insult the creative team in a clever way to show how funny you are. Okay, that last one is optional, but if you can pull it off, terrific!

But mostly the successful candidate will have the demonstrated ability to manage and prioritize the multiple competing priorities inherent to supporting end-to-end HR programs across departments. And keep in mind, even though you'll be working in PA, you'll still be reporting to someone in TX who reports to someone in WA. So your chain of command will stretch NATIONWIDE!

In this job, you’ll learn: that being in a highly visible HR position that supports a facility focused on an emerging business responsible for the development of customized products means you're gonna see some weird shirts coming through. It'll help if you speak a little geek. Or, alternatively, you just don't have to talk to the shirts. HR is about humans, right?

Intangible benefits: Only if a ghost flies into one of the shirts and starts zipping around the production facility. If that happens, you're welcome to take a sick day while we figure out who we're gonna call. Any suggestions?

Potential hazards: You'll need to be ready to translate a big idea into a process or mechanism that reinforces the site’s key business objectives and build lasting relationships with business partners across a 250+ person organization. That means you can't just write HAPPY TACO THURSDAY on a bulletin board and lock the door to your office. You gotta actually WORK.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: comfortable with finishing the mission first, then maybe having a little side discussion in private about establishing a professional dress code for all team members. But you'd certainly be fair about it.

Worst part of the job: only if you dislike Philly. And who dislikes Philly? It's the place that loves you back! Wait, do they still use that?

Make sure you bring: a sack of batteries to throw at people who offend you. No, no, we're kidding again. Throw something softer. That'll help us save on insurance fees.

Responsibilities:

  • The ability to understand business goals and recommend new approaches, policies and procedures to effect continual improvements in business objectives, productivity and development of HR within the company
  • A true hands-on approach as well as the ability to successfully monitor the "pulse" of the employees to ensure a high level of employee engagement
  • Experience with a rapid and complex changing work environment
  • Coaching and mentoring at management level
  • Project management skills; ability to lead projects, gain buy-in and drive to execution and achievement of the right results
  • Solutions focused, comfortable working in an environment which demands strong deliverables including the ability to identify problems and drive appropriate solutions
  • Success in creating and driving effective employee relations, retention and reward programs
  • Enthusiastic team player with a strong drive to create a positive work environment
  • Comfortable with high volume workload and not afraid to “roll up your sleeves”
  • Ability to successfully manage multiple priorities simultaneously – focused on results
  • Strong internal and external customer focus
  • Excellent organizational and interpersonal skills

Basic Qualifications:

  • Completed Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited university required
  • 7+ years HR experience demonstrating steady progression in HR
  • Experience leading, coaching and mentoring direct reports
  • Experience supporting non-exempt (hourly) employee client groups
  • Experience in a distribution, call center or manufacturing environment
  • Ability to influence and partner with different levels of the organization to achieve results
  • Strong business and HR acumen, including strong problem solving skills, critical thinking, and analysis
  • Experience working in an entrepreneurial environment requiring strong multi-tasking abilities
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment is essential.
  • Knowledge of employment laws such as ERISA, COBRA, ADA, and other federal and state laws covering discrimination and equal opportunity employment

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master’s Degree or MBA in Human Resource Management or related field
  • Professional certification in Human Resources
  • Experience assessing management and leadership talent
  • Broad experience and specific knowledge of human resource theory, including employee development and performance appraisal systems

Software Dev Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

You're one part Captain Kirk, one part Han Solo, a quarter Captain Sheridan and a bit… aw, who are we kidding? The truth is, you're going to be managing a team of developers. Developers who work at a fast pace in a dynamic environment, trying to think of and close every loophole before their stuff goes live. Of course they're going to nitpick at everything you say!

The right candidate will know how to keep this rag-tag band of (extremely talented) misfits working as a solid team. You'll be hands-on, working to build Woot's new e-commerce platform using Amazon services, and possibly have to take away their tiny helicopters if they act up.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the well-respected leader of a different super-team from an alternate Earth now trying to fit in. Possibly you'd change your costume.

Worst part of the job: Finding a new costume. Like, do you wear a wig and fishnets? Or a strange helmet? Or something with a lot of pouches that'll only last until the next reboot?

Make sure you bring: something cool to put on your desk. The cooler it is, the more power you'll have. For example, a ten foot high Galactus statue will beat a two inch Boba Fett, every time.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop the long-term strategy for your programs and translate that into an achievable road map/action plan
  • Responsible for the overall systems development life cycle
  • Management and execution against project plans and delivery commitments

Preferred Qualifications:

  • E-commerce development experience
  • Experience taking a lead role in building complex software systems that have been successfully delivered
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
