Let us know if you're a:

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

On the walkway that leads to the Forbidden Temple you’ll face off against six well-trained capoeria masters who also have swords. You’ll parry, they’ll thrust, you’ll dodge, they’ll counter. In the end, you’ll be victorious. Inside the temple you’ll read the symbols on the wall and laugh. “It warns of customer-facing details,” you’ll scribble down in your journal. “Perhaps there’ll be larger project initiatives ahead, forcing me to drive process improvements for the entire team.” But it won’t phase you, because you’ll have spent time leveraging strong project management skills with full ownership over key processes. For you’ll have been an Associate Vendor Manager. And possibly you’ll also have a magic whip. That last part’s up to you, of course, we aren’t gonna supply it. Paper clips, yes, magic whip, no.

In this job, you’ll learn: how to defeat snakes. PRO TIP: close a deal with the mongoose first, and use that as leverage.

Intangible benefits: when you go out to a mongoose club and say “I’m on the list” and the guy at the door is all like “Oh, right, here you are, go right in.”

Potential hazards: have you ever BEEN to a mongoose club? Do NOT go into the bathroom. It’s like CBGBs times two.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: working as an Associate Vendor Manager, but for stuff like space station parts and skids of invulnerable capes. Somebody’s gotta do the logistics, after all.

Worst part of the job: When you run into those capoeria masters at the mall, after hours. What do you say? Do you say hi? Do you just ignore each other? Awk-ward.

Make sure you bring: the phone number for at least one hidden Aztec shipping temple. We’re looking to expand into the Accursed Immortal Aztec Ghost market and we need some contacts to get us started.

Responsibilities:

  • Maintain key systems information, including new item set up, supplier administration, product details and prices
  • Have a thorough understanding of the industry, seasonality and business trends/events, and continually monitor competitor/industry developments
  • Have a complete understanding of the customer needs, both existing and potential, and use that knowledge to advocate for and drive delivery of site features that provide Woot customers the most addictive shopping experience
  • Provide ad hoc and regular online content management, reporting, and analysis to help decision making, such as: vendor set up, wholesale reporting, performance analysis, etc.
  • Have a natural affinity for project management
  • Be motivated by a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment where every idea is heard
  • Demonstrate an interest in working collaboratively with cross-functional teams
  • Intellectually curious with a goal-oriented approach
  • Be a great communicator, with a keen understanding of customer needs (as well as corny jokes)

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

Like a mother cat that has adopted a baby duckling, the job of Inventory Planner is one that nature did not mean a human to take. In truth, you'll be doing a job that's better suited for a robot. So why can't a robot do it? Because robots are stupid.

Look, you'll be responsible for administrating the purchase order process. You'll be generating them, coordinating them, passing information back and forth between the buying team and the vendors and the fulfillment centers. You'll be over here with inventory control, over there with merchandising teams, and yet still be forced to keep one eye on the baby duck that will be your responsibility. And will the inventory thank you? Even one little quack of gratitude? Face it. Being a mother cat is a thankless job.

In this job, you’ll learn: that having a tail really would help out around the office.

Intangible benefits: It'll look super cute when your inventory follows you around the office with tiny waddles. Awww.

Potential hazards: only if the robots hear that you've been calling them stupid. Oh, man, if they ever figure out what that word means, you're SO in for it.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one who gives up their secret identity to protect and coordinate the supplies desperately needed by a small village that soon adopt you as their own. Hey, don't laugh. It's happened more than once in comic books.

Worst part of the job: basically your job is an escort mission, but with inventory instead of a video game NPC. If you just felt a shudder, maybe you should re-consider applying.

Make sure you bring: a secure and sealed box, if you plan to bring a duck and a cat to work with you. You know what? Maybe you should just leave your duck and cat at home.

Responsibilities:

  • Generate and coordinate purchase orders and ensure accurate detail entry
  • Manage purchase order life cycle - know the status of all purchase orders at any given time
  • Troubleshoot and resolve inbound receiving issues at Woot fulfillment centers

  • Bachelor's Degree
  • 2+ years of administrative experience in a highly transactional, fast paced, B2B environment.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Strong interpersonal and organizational skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong desire to make things happen by independent decision-making without immediate supervision or direction
  • Ability to thrive and multitask in an entrepreneurial, unstructured work environment
  • Prior experience in retail/online buying or planning role(s)
  • Proven track record of success in meeting and exceeding performance objectives
  • Strong sense of urgency as well as effective problem solving skills
  • Proactive attitude with the ability to react to unforeseen situations
  • Team player
  • Must have a strong worth ethic, high energy and enthusiasm
  • Can self-start and maintain a positive, upbeat attitude
  • Able to adapt to change

Technical Program Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

Were you raised by robots in a dystopian future? Do you have words floating around your head every time you think about important clues and details? Are you always looking at your watch and muttering to yourself about a tea party to which you might be late? If these apply to you, stop reading, because you're just a fictional character. Sorry this is how you had to find out.

But if instead you have a technical background, are detail driven, have excellent problem solving abilities and are passionate about delivering extensible, on-time solutions while obsessing over the development of high-performance teams through rigorous goal-setting, disciplined attention to performance metrics and continuous process improvement and mentorship, you might just be the human we're hoping to find! But be warning: if you turn out to be a character from a Kafka novel, you won't get the job. This position is for non-imaginary human beings ONLY.

In this job, you’ll learn: that all the work you're doing to control and shape bottlenecks, they sure aren't using it on the elevators in the lobby.

Intangible benefits: seeing a building full of people all simultaneously rush to use a handful of elevators will give you a great visual of what a Bag Of Crap does to a server.

Potential hazards: Only if you're trying to go the opposite direction of the rush.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one who gets fired from superheroing because they spent too much time at work. Quite a twist on the normal sort of story, eh? Eh?

Worst part of the job: trying to get superhero experience to build your super-resume. It's like every bad guy demands you've got three years experience before they even say your name!

Make sure you bring: a few ping pong balls. They're like currency around here. Where do they all GO?

Responsibilities:

  • Assess risks, anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, make tradeoffs, balance the business needs versus technical constraints and encourage risk taking behavior to maximize business benefit.
  • Work closely with the software development and product teams to deliver high quality, scalable products

  • Quantitative analytical abilities
  • Strong organizational skills, successful track record of coordinating between multiple project stakeholders including project sponsors, other technical program managers, and multiple software development teams
  • Tracking and mitigating risks on large scale projects
  • Previous work experience as a software developer (experience running teams using Agile Development methods strongly preferred)
  • Ability to enable effective teamwork, communication, collaboration and commitment across multiple disparate groups with competing priorities.
  • Exhibits strong software development qualities including the ability drive creative and innovation solutions to complex problems, good technical judgment, clear communication, engagement and teamwork, and can drive quality.

CTO
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

You've all read Lord Of The Rings, right? And you know how all those different members of the Fellowship were kind of cool and had a great plan but then when they ran into the Balrog it all got weird and Gandalf decided to handle it himself and left everybody and then it all fell apart and somehow the plan went from "Let's send this small army" to "You two hobbits take care of everything kthxbye" and it was pretty much only luck that finished the job? Well, if there had been a CTO on that mission, everybody would have known how to prioritize their tasks to make sure things worked out just fine.

And that's why this particular Fellowship seeks a CTO to come in and help us transition from grey to white, as it were. As Woot's CTO, you will lead and directly manage a team of Software Development Managers, Technical Program Managers and a Systems Manager and will partner with multiple cross-functional technology teams at Amazon and possibly also serve as liaison to the Dwarves as time permits. You'll inventory giant spiders, conduct direct management of process and quality of service improvements, plan strategic and general project management for software development, procurement and releases, and manage of resources across teams when the party splits due to issue with orc raiders or giant sentient trees. Oddly enough, it'll happen more often than you think.

Our ideal customer-obsessed candidate will also have an established background in developing scalable technical products by showcasing previous or current experience in n-tier/e-commerce/Web Services development platforms and be a direct heir to the throne of Gondor with the heraldry to prove it. They will have excellent project management skills, be motivated to achieve in a fast paced environment, and will raise the bar with their ability to lead through their leaders, dive deep and deliver results. It might help if at least one of your references is an elf. Also, you will add value to the process of understanding the needs of the business and translating them into best of class technology solutions to meet the needs of our customers. Think this is you? Have at it!

In this job, you’ll learn: that lembas bread is all well and good and everything but sometimes meetings just require a few pizzas for the team.

Intangible benefits: there's a few Nazgûl roaming the halls! They mostly stay intangible and do their own thing by the supply closet.

Potential hazards: Only if you wear the wrong jewelry around the supply closet.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: really cross to be compared with comic books when you're obviously destined for high literature.

Worst part of the job: Tom Bombadil. Seriously. Just stay the crap away from that guy.

Make sure you bring: the shards of the stuff you used at your previous job. There's a prophecy that says it'll all get fixed eventually.

Responsibilities:

  • Serve as a thought leader and strategy driver for the company as a member of the Senior Leadership team
  • Work with business and development teams to understand and influence product vision and requirements

  • Build and manage a team of software engineers and quality analysts
  • Develop the long-term strategy for your programs and translate that into an achievable road map/action plan
  • Management and execution against project plans and delivery commitments
  • Management of departmental resources, staffing, mentoring, and enhancing and maintaining a best-in-class engineering team
  • Work closely with the engineers to architect and develop the best technical design and approach

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or related technical discipline
  • 10+ years of relevant software engineering experience
  • 5+ years of people management experience
  • 2+ years of experience managing software development managers and an organization of at least 25 people
  • 2+ years of experience with OOD and object oriented languages

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with website development and frameworks
  • Experience with distributed systems
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • A deep understanding of software development in a team, and a track record of shipping software on time

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

Teams don't just happen. Teams are made. Pick up a handful of toothpicks and tell them what to do in the proper way and most of them will do it! Why? Because you're a wizard and you have magic toothpicks. But how can you make money with magic toothpicks? That's just not possible in today's economy! What you need to do is pretend our software developers are toothpicks and then manage them accordingly. We promise, that'll be a lot easier than taking James Randi's challenge to prove magic exists. Not as lucrative, but easier.

In short, we're seeking a development manager to dev the devs, as it were. We'll give you technical ownership to build a system that will support new initiatives and existing systems. You'll work directly with product managers, user experience designers, usability experts, and business leaders to define and build features that will make our eyes pop like children seeing a fully-trimmed Christmas tree in the center of the mall. You'll work with emerging technologies spanning both front and back-end systems to build features that require creative engineering balanced with high quality and customer focus in order to meet business needs. And, best of all, you'll read and understand the previous sentence! That's real magic at work.

In this job, you’ll learn: which of the two soda machines will take your money. That's something you can't be taught. It only comes from experience and time.

Intangible benefits: One of the snack machines sometimes drops two snacks so it all balances out.

Potential hazards: the guilt you feel when you get two snacks and you have to walk past a new co-worker standing at the soda machine that took their money. Do you give up your extra snack? Or do you pretend not to notice and keep walking?

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: probably some kind of hero that gained powers from a soda machine. Or maybe you'd be a robot with a secret identity as a snack machine? Oh, but a fancy one. With Italian sodas and imported cookies. Mmm. Imported cookies.

Worst part of the job: everybody spends so much time at the snack machines! How does this company even function???

Make sure you bring: a bunch of quarters. You can probably guess why.

Responsibilities:

  • Technical ownership of building a system to support new initiatives and existing systems.
  • Work directly with product managers, user experience designers, usability experts, and business leaders to define and build features.
  • Work with emerging technologies spanning both front and back-end systems to build features that require creative engineering balanced with high quality and customer focus in order to meet business needs.
  • Direct management of engineers, process and quality of service improvements, strategic planning, project management for software within the team, and collaboration with resources across teams.
  • Successful candidates will be strong leaders who can prioritize well, communicate clearly, and have a consistent track record of delivery.
  • The candidate thrives in a fast-paced environment, understands the e-commerce space, and will help us identify and meet customer needs.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science or a related field
  • At least six years of relevant work experience in an internet-related software applications environment
  • At least three years of experience managing technical staff
  • Demonstrated success hiring and developing technical talent
  • Demonstrated track record of initiating and delivering large, complex programs
  • Experience with OOD and object oriented languages
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Strong business and technical vision
  • Ability to handle multiple competing priorities in a fast-paced environment

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree in computer science or a related field
  • Prior experience as a software developer
  • Experience with agile or other program management methodologies
  • Experience with building web centric e-commerce features
  • 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 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

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.

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.

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? DO YOU WANT TO STICK YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE WINDOW AND SCREAM "I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT FRONT END AND BACK END DEVELOPMENT AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE"?!?!? 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

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 problem solving & issue-resolution
  • 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
