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!

So many orders in this day and age go unfulfilled. We've turned therapy, entertainment, food and drink, and tawdry short-term affairs. And what happens? Nothing! They stay unfulfilled! So now we're turning to you.

We want someone who's capable of handing end-to-end ownership, right down to last mile delivery and customer service.

We want a candidate who will possess a strong business/product/inventory/supply chain management background combined with a solid understanding of current web technologies, be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities, and still give us a thoughtful nod as we talk about how much we miss our kindergarten teacher.

Sr. Product Manager, Strategic Initiatives
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

The demands of the rabble are unceasing. Left to their own devices, they'll mass outside the gate and tear down the stone walls that hold the Woot.com fortress high. But if given a marketplace, where they can explore and be dazzled by the various wares? Why, they'll be a happy community of productive consumers! Trust us, we've studied how castles work. Well, okay, we took a class. Pass-fail. And we failed. BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT.

Intangible benefits: you'll quickly develop the Amazon Marketplace's love and watch her wag her tail at you when you come to work every morning.

Potential hazards: Sometimes the deer run past and the Amazon Marketplace just goes crazy for a few minutes. But it's endearing.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: a patch-wearing super-spy who understands that the right initiative can change the world. Also you might have robot doubles. Depends on the universe, really.

Worst part of the job: when you wind up in the universe that's gonna get deleted. Try to keep to the cinematic side of things and you'll be fine.

Make sure you bring: a good idea for a cool acronym. Like S.L.A.M.M.I.N.G, Some Lovely Amazon Marketplace Marked Initiative Now Growing. Except better. Much better.

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.

Vendor Manager, Sports

Finish this sentence: Hut, Hut, _____? The answer this question: what's the song they play to kill time between plays? Then answer this question: how many players on a baseball team have a greater than 80% chance of spitting?

We'll protect you.

In this job, you’ll learn: that it doesn't matter if you're armchair jock or alpha nerd, everybody enjoys a plate of nachos and a beer after work.

Intangible benefits: other teams will come to you to settle sports arguments! It doesn't matter if you know the answer or not. Just sound confident.

Potential hazards: only if they send in the troll.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the only one qualified to make tactical decisions based on your years of quarterbacking at State U. Forget that super-genius millionaire ninja guy. He probably only played water polo!

Worst part of the job: trying to explain the squeeze play using the Death Star trench run as a metaphor.

Make sure you bring: a small trophy of some sort. If anyone asks, look wistfully to the North and say "I coulda been pro... if it wasn't for the accident." It'll help add to your legend.

Responsibilities:

  • Building executive-level vendor partnerships with holdout vendors
  • Engaging with vendors to pitch the Woot value proposition and gather insight and feedback into how Woot can be their overstock solution

In a tug-of-war, you’re the strong and mighty anchor, yelling WHY CAN’T YOU FOOLS PULL HARDER. In a squirt gun fight, you’d be standing beside the water hose, but unleashing a moist barrage on those who might otherwise enwetten your pals.

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

Sublimation. A concept invented (so to speak) by the philosophers. It's the way a mature adult takes their destructive desires and turns them into something positive! Like, for example, if you were someone who wanted to spend money to buy things for the home, and then you got a job spending money to buy things for the home professionally! That's our way of saying: we want you.

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:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • 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
  • Strong understanding of software testing methodologies and levels (unit, integration, acceptance, system)
  • Experience with test automation tools (NUnit, Calabash, Selenium WebDriver)
  • 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
  • Experience developing RESTful APIs with ASP.NET MVC
  • Awareness of mobile development trends and design paradigms
  • 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

Senior Product Manager, Mobile Applications
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

The mobile platform is growing even as it’s shrinking. Yeah. Go ahead. Wrap your mind around that. If you think you can, and also you can demonstrate exceptional mobile application product management skills while developing products that matter to the world, the universe, this particular dimension and the omniverse at large, we’re interested in talking to you! First project: a spell-checking program that doesn’t try to turn omniverse into omnivores.

In this job, you’ll learn: the proper way to enter a room so as to minimize your chance of being hit with a Nerf dart.

Intangible benefits: when you bring a huge box of donuts your developers will look at you the way a newborn puppy looks at its mother.

Potential hazards: only if you don’t set the donuts down fast enough.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the mysterious shadowy figure, probably with an eyepatch, who coordinates the team from a secret, undisclosed location.

Worst part of the job: finding the secret, undisclosed location where we put your desk. After all, if we told you where it was, it would no longer be undisclosed.

Make sure you bring: an eyepatch. Otherwise your first day’s gonna sting a little.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science degree
  • 3+ years of product management experience from a technology, e-commerce, digital media or retail related company with some experience in mobile application development
  • Proven success in delivering products in mobile applications in a high growth environment
  • Experience in interpreting and communicating analytics; leveraging customer research, hard data and metrics to back up assumptions and marketing programs
  • Experience in problem solving & issue-resolution

Preferred Qualifications:

  • MBA preferred
  • Data mining and ability to write SQL queries
  • Ability to work in an extremely deadline driven work environment, attention to detail, and ability to multitask
  • Prove ability to prioritize well and communicate clearly across all levels of the organization both Technical and Non-Technical information
  • Experience in problem solving & issue-resolution
  • A demonstrated ability to understand and discuss technical concepts, schedule tradeoffs and evaluate opportunistic new ideas with technical employees
  • A demonstrated ability to understand and discuss technical concepts, schedule tradeoffs and evaluate opportunistic new ideas with technical employees

Senior UX Designer
(Woot Workshop, Seattle, WA)

UX! See that? It's a perfectly formed U and a perfectly shaped X. Pretty good, huh? Yeah, we're pretty proud of how well we designed that UX up there. But maybe, just maybe, you can do better. So if you think you can UX up to our level, well, give it a shot. But we've got to warn you. We've been typing "UX" for years now. We're prrrretty good at it.

That having been said, if you think you're the talented Senior UX Designer who can outshine an UX like this - UX! - then give us a jingle. You'll need to be comfortable with all manner of visual design projects, from a template-based icon to interactive web features to Heaven knows what else. Innovation and independence is valued highly, but we'll still expect you to listen to our dumb ideas and make them work. Applicants will be evaluated primarily on their online portfolios; failure to provide work samples (and your role in each) will pretty much guarantee that we won't call you. Coding or other multimedia production skills are a bonus. Also you need to be able to write "UX" without any typos. Think you can handle that?

In this job, you’ll learn: that showing off a portfolio which demonstrates how you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including: color, layout, typography, and illustration, an in-depth understanding of web design principles and usability, and a solid grounding in the possibilities (and limitations) of current and emerging web technologies and trends is literally the only way to impress us. Not counting the guy who did fifty thousand jumping jacks without taking a break. Now THAT was impressive.

Intangible benefits: it's fun to watch people doing jumping jacks in the parking lot, if that's what you mean.

Potential hazards: the heartbreak of seeing a person who's just done 49,999 jumping jacks collapse into a puddle of tears, knowing they missed the record by mere inches.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: a billionaire named Jack with radiation-enhanced jumping powers (who hopefully does some UX work on the side).

Worst part of the job: when the boss calls you in to ask why you misspelled "UX" for the third time. Seriously. Get yourself together.

Make sure you bring: a portfolio which demonstrates how you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including: color, layout, typography, and illustration, an in-depth understanding of web design principles and usability, and a solid grounding in the possibilities (and limitations) of current and emerging web technologies and trends. Just in case you hadn't caught on to how serious we are about that part.

Responsibilities:

  • Create a world-class customer experience and beautiful visuals that support and reinforce Woot’s vision, brand, and business objectives
  • Drive creative development and be the primary point of contact with key stakeholders on retail UX design initiatives, strategy and implementation
  • Partner closely with cross-functional teams to define feature requirements via empirical online data, usability findings, market research, and proven UCD principles
  • Provide thought leadership in architecting a near and long term design vision for customer discovery, consideration and purchase from Woot.com
  • Provide creative direction to other designers on the team and external creative partners
  • Understand and respond to performance data, steering the strategy of future creative directions
  • Define patterns and advocate for consistency, while fostering inspiration innovation

Basic Qualifications:

  • An online portfolio that demonstrates your ability to turn ideas into a strong and unique creative vision. Please add your online portfolio link at the top of your resume when you apply.
  • 5+ years of relevant professional experience as a creative lead on UX Design projects
  • Ability to successfully present designs to senior business leaders
  • Ability to manage and refine the workflow, design and approval processes
  • Ability to work cross-team and synthesize feedback and input from merchandising, marketing, product management and development
  • Experience managing multiple projects at one time to make aggressive deadlines
  • Fluency in English required
  • Expertise in current and emerging front-end technologies, UX trends, and best practices
  • Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash, Freehand or Illustrator, Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS coding

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Team player with refined and assertive leadership skills – ability to positively influence change through inspirational design, solid rationale, supporting data and diplomacy
  • Relentless desire for innovation balanced with business needs and customer expectations
  • Knowledge of information architecture, usability, and e-commerce design best practices
  • Expertise in using data to driven design improvements (usability testing, A/B testing, and site-metrics)
  • Unwavering attention to detail with an acute awareness that everything counts
  • Illustration, prototyping and/or multimedia skills preferred
  • Desire and ability to work in a fast-paced environment
  • Solid written/verbal communication and collaborative skills
