Carrollton, TX

Senior Leader, Business Intelligence and Product Management
(Woot Inc, Carrollton, TX)

Are passionate about diving deep into data? Do you have outstanding analytical skills? Are you are a strong leader committed to building great teams with a vested interest in coaching team members on developing their careers? Do you like sunsets, long walks in a gentle rain, and a collaborative, creative analytical, and fast-paced environment interacting with business and technical partners? Hey! Check you out! You might be just the person we're looking for!

A candidate like you will be adept at designing best of class data structures. "High energy solution-focused" is what it says on your mudflaps, and if those mudflaps fall off, your can-do attitude puts them right back on again. You're a big thinker able to develop creative solutions to overcome challenges. And as long as you represent all that (and the qualifications below) the sunset and rain part up there is optional. But it'd be nice to have the company on our long walks. Sigh.

In this job, you’ll learn: the story of the one-eyed man with a golden hook who leaps out from Conference Room A and steals candy from lazy workers? Yeah, that's not actually true. But don't be afraid to use the myth to your advantage!

Intangible benefits: Sometimes its fun to dress up like a one-eyed man with a golden hook and get free candy! And you can legally call it a "motivation seminar" if you want.

Potential hazards: it's very hard to keep healthy when your office is filled with bags and bags of stolen candy. Moderation in all things.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: moved to the "only in an global emergency" roster due to a lack of free time because of your really demanding Business Intelligence job. But on the plus side, you'll never get stuck with monitor duty on Friday nights.

Worst part of the job: sometimes you'll get the urge to set up boxes and make a Pac-Man maze. It's a siren song, laddie, and it comes for all Product Manager team members at one time or another. It'll come for you, too. Be wary.

Make sure you bring: a mysterious leather case. And anytime someone asks if you can handle a new situation, just pat the case lovingly and say "Oh, yes. I'm certain that we can." It's a great way to make sure people in the office remember your name!

Basic Qualifications:

  • BA/BS Degree in Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Economics, Bioinformatics, Finance, Supply Chain, or related discipline
  • 10+ years of relevant experience with data mining, SQL, building reporting, and statistical modeling
  • Experience working with business customers to drive requirements
  • 2+ years of experience managing teams
  • Proactive attitude
  • Ability to think and react in a high-energy, fast-paced environment where ambiguity is the norm
  • Demonstrated track record of creative problem solving; think big, start small, grow fast
  • Strong attention to detail, excellent organization skills, and ability to manage multiple projects and responsibilities
  • Experience with STATA, R, SAS or other statistical software packages
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

Preferred Qualifications:

  • MBA
  • 5 to 7 year of professional experience in data science or operations research, working with large-scale, complex datasets
  • Supply chain experience
  • Sound business judgment, proven ability to influence others, and strong analytical thinking skills and attention to details are critical to success in this position
  • Creative in finding new solutions / designing innovative methods, systems and processes

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

You're the sort of person who walks in a room and sizes up what everyone is wearing. You're the sort of person who says "Those pants would look better if you also bought some shoes from an additional sale, wouldn't they?" You're interested in the look, the style, the image, the ART of being alive. And YOU'RE the one we need to make our Fashion sales look as pretty as a runway in Milan!

Intangible benefits: You're in fashion. Everything you do involves the tangible. Fibers, colors, patterns, all of it. THAT'S WHAT FASHION IS. PURE TANGIBILITY.

Potential hazards: Deciding on the inventory. Like, what if you've got a great deal on white shirts but it's the day after Labor Day? Do you risk your reputation to close the deal?

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one with the best-dressed sidekick.

Worst part of the job: Those days when you look out the window, remembering the houndstooth sweaters you left behind in your climb to the top.

Make sure you bring: A cute little bow tie. If you can pull THAT off, you can pull off ANYTHING.

  • Ability to juggle multiple priorities and make things happen in a fast-paced, dynamic environment; strong bias for action.
  • Experience owning and managing the entire supply base for a given category or product segment, ideally with consumer products.
  • Strong analytical and quantitative skills; ability to prepare data and metrics to back up assumptions and evaluate outcomes.

Retail Vendor Manager - Computers
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

You spot deals like a hunting dog spots a rabbit: quickly and efficiently. You move for deals like a sea lion moves for a crab: smoothly and directly. And you buy deals like a penny pincher buys toilet paper: after much debate, even if it only saves them a penny. That's how you, upcoming Computers VM, will bring us the very best computer deals.

The ideal candidate (which means you, right?) will have significant Consumer Electronics experience reviewing product, analyzing data, knowing what customers want, identifying trends and coming to conclusions that result in deciding what products will be available on our site. In fact, the ideal candidate sounds a lot like... a computer! So if you are not a human, worry not. As long as you can close a deal, we don't care about species. Just know we might ask non-humans to wear a rubber mask around the office for tax reasons. It's nothing personal.

In this job, you’ll learn: the difference between one black HP Laptop and another black HP Laptop. Or at least you'll learn how to bluff that there's a difference.

Intangible benefits: everyone will assume you're a PC Wizard!

Potential hazards: everyone will try to use you as a help desk. And God have mercy on you if you order any Macs.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: really really really into cutting a bulk order for some special trouble alerts for the team to use.

Worst part of the job: Two words: mandatory software updates.

Make sure you bring: an understanding that "software updates" is one word. Seriously. Just accept it. This is our world, now.

  • Engaging with vendors to pitch the Woot value proposition and gather insight and feedback into how Woot can be their overstock solution

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:

  • Develop top performing team members and make great hiring decisions to cultivate bench strength

  • Cross functional collaboration with Woot and Amazon Marketing, Operations and Technology teams to support strategies and initiatives
  • Maintain a culture of continuous improvement across all teams
  • Key stakeholder driving the company’s project road map – intake, prioritization and execution

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree
  • 7+ years’ in buying, account management, product/project management, financial analysis and/or marketing
  • 5+ years’ experience hiring and managing a team
  • 5+ years’ experience in negotiations and vendor/project management
  • Demonstrated analytical skills
  • 5+ years in the online channel with e-commerce experience
  • SQL/ETL skills

Preferred Qualifications:

  • MBA with 10+ years of relevant business experience
  • 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
  • Strong communication skills – verbal and written – with the ability to influence stakeholders at all levels of the organization

Sr. IT Support Engineer

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.
  • Handle multiple projects and daily activities, meet deadlines and develop plans on how to accomplish departmental and distribution goals.
  • Ensuring that all safety programs and procedures are followed, develop and maintain preventative maintenance programs and good working relationships with operations.
  • Develop business plans and provide guidance and direction for the successful implementation of those plans.
  • Help to develop, set and track budgets.
  • Understand and implement safety programs.
  • Provide enriched feedback to enhance individual performance, provide associates with written performance appraisals including discipline and up to termination.
  • Mentor all facilities associates by motivating and providing direction to help them achieve their goals and make a consistent effort to go above and beyond.

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

  • Ensure the proper and safe installation and maintenance of equipment
  • Ensure production execution achieves or exceeds performance expectations
  • Ensure compliance with policies and procedures. Communicate job expectations to all employees; plan, monitor, appraise, and review performance. Train new and current production staff on production procedures.
  • Work with the Operations Manager to communicate manage assuring highest customer service and efficiency
  • Keep and maintain production records accurately and consistently. Support any required reporting on productivity, production status, cost controls, quality measures, etc.
  • 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
  • Troubleshoot problems through to resolution, escalating to manager as needed
  • Perform other assignments as needed as directed by management

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent education
  • 2+ year of management/supervisory experience
  • Flexible to work any/all shifts, schedules, hours and areas including weekends, nights and holidays as needed

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Commercial print environment experience preferred
  • 5+ yrs exp. in a textile Print Production Management position

Some jobs seem pretty boring. Fruit picker. Stock clerk. Guy who buys the chalk for an elementary school. But if you look beyond the tedium you'll discover what the job really is: the glue that holds society together. Because without that picker, how would the fruit make it to the World Bank Fruit Eating Contest And without that chalk, how would tomorrow's Nobel laureates write dirty words on the sidewalk while the teacher isn't looking?

Seattle, WA

Technical Program Manager III
(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?

  • 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 with all the stakeholders to assemble project teams, assign responsibilities, identify appropriate resources needed, and develop schedules to ensure timely completion of projects by meeting project milestones.
  • Successful candidates will have a technical background, be detail driven and have excellent problem solving abilities.

  • Experience with project delivery for large, cross functional projects

(Woot Inc, Seattle, WA)

A tisket. A tasket. Eh, whatever. But combine them with a green and yellow basket and suddenly the whole world's talking about them! Who knew, right? Well, our Marketing Manager, we hope. Because that Marketing Manager would have developed, executed and evaluated strategies for marketing to Woot’s growing community of deal-obsessed customers. They would also have been crafting both acquisition and CRM strategies for segmenting, targeting and communicating with Wooters to build awareness, attract new customers and increase retention. while owning implementation of our brand, positioning and editorial voice, innovating and expanding our marketing and communication horizons to channels and approaches to leverage Woot’s position as an Amazon subsidiary.

He or she should be innovative, leadership and team oriented, an effective communicator, and possess a working knowledge of tuffets, curds and whey.

Intangible benefits: when you march your staff up to the top of the hill, then march them down again. What a rush, right?

Potential hazards: any time someone yells "Ashes! Ashes!" you should probably brace yourself.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one with a secret base inside a shoe! Also, you'd have an absolute ton of children.

Worst part of the job: there's always a lamb in the lobby. Apparently it follows an employee every day, even though she KNOWS it's against the rules!

Make sure you bring: a pipe, a bowl, and three fiddles. We'll clear up the reason why after you sign your NDA.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop multi-channel Woot marketing and communication strategy across Woot, Amazon, other Amazon subs, social channels and email.
  • Define the target Woot customer profile for each business segment and invent new ways to reach those segments.

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:

  • Act as first line of defense for technical, customer service, and community, as well as any other type of issue that may arise
  • Maintain and develop community standards with a neutral perspective; self-moderation skills are extremely important
  • Recognize and report product safety issues; communicate issues, problems to other internal departments on behalf of the customer
  • Recognize and address threats to the well-being of the community (e.g. shilling, referral linking programs)
  • Create engaging community and social programs, with a cohesive point-of-view and brand voice to grow membership and engagement within the social media and community spaces
  • Think big and partner across internal teams on new traffic opportunities; find ways to innovate and creatively leverage what’s new and culturally trending on social platforms
  • 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
  • Flexible hours, including occasional long shifts

Basic Qualifications:

  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills; team-oriented, ability to work with a wide range of internal departments
  • Strong writing skills with a background in online retail
  • Experience with customer engagement on social platforms and/or online message boards

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

We'll be honest with you, this job is a whisper in a dark alley. This job is a shadowy file in a back room. This job is for the person that appears, gets things done, and vanishes. Maybe you're real. Maybe you're a legend. All that's know is when people see your face, they know something important is happening. And when you call on them, they know adventure follows.

To be a TMPII is to pledge your life to two worlds, and to stand between them at all times. You'll speak nerd and suit and roll your eyes equally at both. But, at the end of the day, you'll be the one thing keeping the abstract and the concrete from tearing each other apart.

Also, there's a coffee machine close by. That could save you a little money, right?

In this job, you’ll learn: that time is a fluid construct that constantly expands and contracts in order to make sure your department will never have enough of it to go around. Best of luck!

Intangible benefits: you can sing your job description to the tune of Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Go on, try it. TPM II. T. P. M. II. TPM II, TPM II, TPM II! TPM II, TPM II, TPM II! TPM II tpm ii TPM II tpm ii TPM II, II, II! How lovely!

Potential hazards: only if you try to do the same thing with a Philip Glass piece.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the cursed magician who was always drawn to the moment of greatest crisis to say DOOM! DOOM IS UPON US! and find the most essential heroes who know how to solve the problem by the deadline.

Worst part of the job: when someone beats you to the coffee machine and puts in those beans you don't like. You know, the ones that taste like mocha and salmon. What's even UP with those beans?

Make sure you bring: your time machine, if you have one. If you don't have one, consider devoting your retirement to finding one and then sending it back to yourself on your first day at this job! It's logically unsound but if it works, it works.

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
  • Ensure the most efficient use of resources and technologies.

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

All things begin with tools and end in a garden. Go on, think of something. How was it made? WITH TOOLS. And when the last bit of it turns into dust, what will happen then? SOMETHING WILL GROW ON THAT DUST. It's the whole cycle of life. Tools to Garden. And we must play our part.

So if you're interested covering both ends of the entire human experience, from creation to death, maybe you'll want to be our new Vendor Manager! You'll need to talk across teams and levels, balance the needs and requirements of internal and external customers, prioritize as our business changes and, above all, deliver results. Because without results, what are we? Just ships slowly passing from point a to point b and leaving nothing behind. Yeah. Tools and Gardens are DEEP.

In this job, you’ll learn: the philosophy of taking and sending away. Truly, what IS retail but the application of taking and sending away? And what is life but various forms of retail?

Intangible benefits: if you want to talk about the nature of human existence during lunch you clearly will find one or two people interested.

Potential hazards: only if you pick one of the bad spots for lunch. Philosopher kings are super picky about what they eat.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: probably one of those '90s heroes who talk a bunch about the big concepts like creation and destruction and why we're here in the universe. Also your artist might do some really surreal stuff. But at least you'd be critically acclaimed.

Worst part of the job: when your boss says "We need this by five" and you say "But what does five truly mean since time is a human construct to explain the decay of life in a forward direction?" and then your boss is like "Get back to work" and you're like "okay."

Make sure you bring: an interest in being a VM for Tools & Garden. Despite this job description, you're not actually going for your PhD.

Responsibilities:

  • P&L responsibility for managed vendors: negotiate the best costs, and grow sales and margin
  • Manage day-to-day vendor relationships, represent Woot when meeting with vendors’ senior executive teams
  • Conduct financial analysis of business opportunities to meet and exceed revenue and profitability targets
  • Work with internal teams to help drive tools and process improvements that affect the categories, with emphasis on automating tasks that are currently performed manually

Basic Qualifications:

  • 3+ years in product, project, business, and/or vendor management is required
  • Bachelor's degree in retail, business, operations, supply-chain or a related discipline
  • Thorough knowledge of and experience using Excel and/or Access databases and familiarity with statistics or other analytical techniques

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Strong data extraction, analytical and problem solving skills
  • Proven negotiating skills, influencing abilities and some vendor management experience
  • The right candidate thrives in a high energy environment where tactical and strategic activities are expected to be driven in parallel
  • Highly innovative, flexible and self-directed
  • Superior analytical skills, with demonstrated ability to dive in and quickly understand root cause and identify scalable solutions
  • Must possess excellent business judgment, strong written and oral communication skills, and a practical, common sense approach to getting things done
  • High degree of organization and ability to manage multiple, competing priorities simultaneously
  • · Excellent collaboration skills that enable you to earn trust at all levels
  • · Extreme attention to detail and willingness to roll up your sleeves

Data Engineer, Woot Voice of the Customer Program
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

The customer comes first at Woot! But "the customer" isn't always able to make it to our weekly meetings. So instead of putting out cupcakes and tiny cups of juice, we've added the "Voice Of The Customer" to our teams. Now we (which means you) will have access to data and details so we can make stuff our customers want, sometimes before they even want it! It's a good gig, making people happy. Won't you help us make it happen?

 

In this job, you’ll learn: that customers aren't just imaginary beings like unicorns and manticores. Although some customers do have beaks and wings. Isn't that what a manticore has? It's been a while since we played D&D.

Intangible benefits: When you get it right, you'll know all the smiles are because of you!

Potential hazards: When you get it wrong, you'll have to stay off Twitter for a few days.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: too busy to be on a superhero team, because of all the time you'd be spending with the customers!

Worst part of the job: How can there be a worst part when dealing with customers? Customers are the BEST!

Make sure you bring: a desire to change everything you know our customers don't like.

Responsibilities:

You're just the sort of person the robots want to keep their job warm for them until they're born. Hey, don't look so sad. In robot logic, that's a compliment!

As you formalize problem definitions from ambiguous requirements, extract insights from big data and develop cutting-edge solutions for non-standard problems, research with, experiment with, and analyzing forecasting strategies, mathematical models and also prototype implementations, you'll know that one day, a super-cool robot will wheel in and tell you that you're no longer needed. But look at it this way: you'll be able to meet a cool robot! Won't that be great? Yeah. Yeah, it will.

In this job, you’ll learn: that we really are just complex and unpredictable mathematical problems that pretend to be human.

Intangible benefits: if you solve for humanity, you'll instantly become all-powerful and be like a mighty Greek god!

Potential hazards: have you ever read mythology? The Greek gods had pretty dramatic lives. You might not actually want that.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: someone with powers to see the future.

Worst part of the job: when your powers to see the future reveal a dark time ahead, like an alien invasion or a four hour meeting with your boss's boss.

Make sure you bring: outstanding analytical abilities, excellent communication skills, and comfort working with technical teams and systems. And maybe some fresh milk for the cereal bar. We've been running a little low.

Responsibilities:

  • Build statistical models to represent the quality of deals sourced based on revenue forecasting at various levels.

Sr. Product Manager, Digital Marketing
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

Do you open spam and think "Wow, this person clearly has NO idea about what their key metrics should be!" When you buy gifts for people, do you consult your self-made algorithm chart based on a year of personal observations so you know who will most prefer what?

In this job, you’ll learn: how to best explain the costs and benefits of our activities and events in simple words that even the writers can understand. Maybe try metaphors about Archie comics, they usually respond well to those.

Potential hazards: Your job description includes the sentence "The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working closely across functions, as well as the ability to communicate with executive stakeholders." See the word "executive" in there? That means it'll be harder to pass the buck, so you gotta do it right the first time.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: some sort of vampire slayer, probably. How else will you meet the stakeholders? AYYYYYYYYYY

Worst part of the job: That joke you just read. That's it. It's all downhill now.

Make sure you bring: all your information about the pizza deliveries. We'd like to review it so we know how we can get our lunch here faster.

Sr. Manager, Woot Marketplace
(Woot Inc, Seattle, WA)

Do you remember back in 1995 when your future was data jacks and black leather jackets, and the World Wide Web was full of blue disks and red squares and everyone talked like CD-ROMs would be changing the world for good? We were going to jump the digital fences and play data football across everyone's backyards. The Internet was a suburb lawn and we were all children who knew we'd be doing this forever. And now? Now we understand that summer doesn't last for but a day.

We bring this up now because you're probably sometimes wondering how you can face your 1995 self in the mirror.

Synthesizing these inputs, you will recommend optimal deal opportunities to ensure the best customer and vendor experience. And how can you better express this to your 1995 self? By saying "Hey, kid, we grow up to run an online marketplace, and I'm in charge of the secret information." And once you work for us, it'll technically be true.

In this job, you’ll learn: that the Internet has matured since the days of 56k. Even though the people using it really haven't.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the snappy android with significant experience analyzing data, identifying trends, extracting conclusions, and presenting recommendations in a simple and clear manner. Also, you'd talk like a Vertigo character from 1994. That could be either good or bad, you'll have to decide that on your own.

Worst part of the job: we make everyone grow a soul patch and wear a "Don't Have A Cow, Man" shirt.

Make sure you bring: a dolphin. If you're a real cyberpunk fan we don't have to explain why.

Imagine being a robot. A cool robot. A robot with a bunch of mysterious robed figured for bosses. A robot saving children from threats. ARISE TOBOT-Z the mysterious robed figures 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 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.

  • 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
