CFO
(Woot Inc, Carrollton, TX)

Numbers are like warriors who battle for the business. If you have enough, you'll win! If you have too few, you won't. That's why you, CFO, are taking the position of the battlefield commander. With five direct reports and a total team of 50+ you'll need to be an outstanding leader and effective communicator to drive your organization forward, create and/or improve business processes, and develop productive, cross-functional relationships both internally and with external partners.

In addition to this, you'll lead our Customer Service organization and our Advertising business, plus the core finance, tax and accounting functions. The ideal candidate (which obviously is you, right?) will boast a passion for getting the numbers right and the business acumen to be a key stakeholder in developing Woot’s strategy and delivering process improvements. And then you'll look across the battlefield and smell the smell of victory. Which smells a lot like black printer's ink. Not red. Never red.

In this job, you’ll learn: that being an analytical, solution-focused owner with a proven track record of obsessing over the customer experience can get you a pretty nice office! But you'll still have to go through security in the lobby just like everybody else.

Intangible benefits: When you deliver results by building and developing top performing organizations while keeping the team focused on the right objectives everyone will give you props. But then where will you keep those props? On the wall, like your office was some wacky sports bar? No, you're going to need a special prop closet. And the better you do, the larger that closet has to be.

Potential hazards: If you do your job too well, the prop closet will be very hard to close.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the aloof and calculating genius who is always ready for anything, has a thousand back-up plans, and never smiles. Except we want you to smile, because that's just part of being polite. But you'll know that in advance and be smiling anyway. Even if you don't mean it. Because you're always one step ahead of us. Plans within plans.

Worst part of the job: no CFO has time to play superheroes. Are you kidding? You'll have WAY too much to do.

Make sure you bring: an understanding that when your job initials start with the letter C, you're in a whole new ball park. And that ball park means your job has to be as complex and beautiful as a diamond. But not the ball park kind of diamond. The other kind. Aw, heck, just read the stuff below.

Responsibilities:

We are looking for a CFO strategist who is able to adapt and function as a Responder, Challenger, Architect and Transformer to drive change and deliver results.

  • Responder: As a responder, the CFO and the finance organization support the company’s strategy development by helping key business leaders quantitatively analyze the financial implications of different strategy choices.
  • Challenger: As a challenger, the CFO and finance organization act as stewards of future value in the strategy process by critically examining the risks to, and expected returns on, different strategy alternatives. Acting as a challenger is especially critical to the review of major strategy investment decisions. This must be balanced with being a driver of growth and supporting appropriate risks.
  • Architect: The CFO will work with business leaders to shape strategy choices and apply finance strategies to complement and maximize the value of particular strategies. Architects work to find “a path to yes” on key business investments.
  • Transformer: As a transformer, the CFO will be a lead partner to the CEO in shaping and executing future strategy of Woot. A key to success is driving financial and operational changes which result in a scalable, profitable business.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Finance, Accounting, Business or a related field.
  • 12 plus years of financial leadership, showcasing progressive levels of responsibility
  • Demonstrated financial acumen and analytical experience delivering forecasting, budgeting, and variance analysis, and data interpretation of business impact and results
  • 7 plus years building highly productive teams
  • Experience with complex problem solving
  • Ability to present ideas to senior executives
  • Strong, timely business judgment and controllership focus
  • Proven finance optimization, offering speed, agility and insight
  • Internal and external customer obsession and a work ethic based on a strong desire to exceed expectations
  • Excellent communication skills

Preferred Qualifications:

  • MBA or CPA preferred.
  • Experience supporting a combination of technology businesses, e-commerce retail, and/or operations in a high volume environment.
  • Advanced modeling and analytical skills, including advanced Excel skills in conjunction with financial based ERP systems.
  • Ability to work independently and self-motivate in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Responsibilities:

  • Lead and manage a team by training, developing, and coaching team members on a consistent basis

But if you look beyond the tedium you'll discover what the job really is: the glue that holds society together.

Sr. Product Manager, Order Fulfillment
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

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 somebody who can innovate, simplify, and bring us love on those cold evenings when the darkness get to be too much. 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. Hey, people find fulfillment in different ways. Don't get all judgy, judgy-pants.

In this job, you’ll learn: that you can't fill the hole in your heart with things. But you should try that first, because it'll help us meet our annual sales goals. Helping others is good.

Intangible benefits: a constant warm feeling in your heart. Not because you're making a difference. Because the cafeteria will give you heartburn.

Business Intelligence Engineer
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

When you apply to be a BIE
it's not about the shirt and tie
It's not about the way you'll try
to measure data with no lie
It's more about the way you'll fly

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:

  • Relentlessly pursuing and advocating for the best possible customer experience by partnering with product managers, vendor managers, developers, and other designers.
  • Take ownership of both large and small projects.
  • Own the end-to-end design process and deliverables such as workflows, wireframes, mockups, prototypes, redlines, and optimized assets.
  • Be adept at communicating everything from design strategy to detailed interaction behaviors for both mobile and web
  • You understand shopping should be both frictionless and fun.

Basic Qualifications:

  • 6+ years as a User Experience Designer, Interaction Designer, Product Designer or similar role designing for mobile and desktop
  • Online portfolio of work showcasing engaging user-centered design solutions
  • Can demonstrate a high competency level with mobile and desktop UX design patterns
  • Proven ability to partner with multiple teams outside design such as vendor managers and engineering
  • Experience presenting UX design to stakeholders
  • Experience scoping design initiatives and prioritizing work with an understanding of how UX supports business objectives
  • Experience designing aesthetically pleasing work, can speak to visual design principles
  • Can demonstrate a high competency level with a variety of design tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Visio, Axure and Dreamweaver

Preferred Qualifications:

  • E-commerce experience
  • Experience integrating user experience with a strong brand experience
  • Hands on experience conducting user research
  • Ability to prototype in Axure, InVision, HTML, Flash, AfterEffects or similar
  • Firm grasp of which qualitative and quantitative methodologies to use throughout project lifecycle
  • Experience balancing heuristics, user research, customer data, and customer feedback

Sr. Manager of Traffic
(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? Do you like to keep track of the pizza delivery trucks outside your apartment, occasionally cross-referencing them to the days sporting events to find trends and their causes? Because, if so… we're very interested.

In essence, we're looking for a traffic pro, who can help us introduce new customers to our great deals and hilarious content. You will lead a team of marketers and coordinate with our vendor management, product management, and development teams to identify and prioritize our biggest traffic driving opportunities. You will also manage external partners and identify new partners to help us drive traffic and introduce woot to new customers. Plus this role has responsibility for strategy, execution, measurement, and reporting across all the channels. And if you don't feel scared after reading that sentence, YOU might be just who we're looking for!

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.

Intangible benefits: You'll be working with category leads, editorial staff, development teams, finance, advertising, legal, and customer service, so you're pretty much going to know everybody.

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.

Responsibilities:

Your responsibilities will be divided into five general areas.

  • Traffic Channel Ownership: Ownership of all managed marketing channels including: email, organic search, paid search, affiliates, app download campaigns, display advertising, and paid and earned social.

  • Customer Acquisition and Retention: Drive new customers via paid and organic search, social media programs, e-mail marketing, and other online marketing initiatives while also bringing new consumers into the fold via more traditional offline campaigns. Be creative and use the latest techniques to build the user base and accelerate customer growth through a range of marketing strategies and programs.
  • Public Relations and Event Marketing: Develop media relations strategies that elevate Woot’s visibility as a trusted deals site. Conceive and execute memorable special events that attract positive publicity, reward existing customers, attract new customers and respected partners. Develop short- and long-term plans and budgets for marketing communications and public relations.
  • Customer Segmentation/Targeting: Work with BIE/Analytics to develop a customer segmentation and drive continuous improvement of targeting and marketing plans based on segmentation.
  • Management: Actively participate as a member of the marketing leadership team. Responsible for the recruitment, career development, and mentoring of staff.

  • Experience communicating verbally and through written documents with senior leadership
  • Background performing and overseeing quantitative analysis to reach sound data-based conclusions
  • Adept at bridging data analysis, primary and secondary research, competitive intelligence and marketing savvy to build marketing and communication programs
  • Demonstrated aptitude at managing, developing, and retaining high-performing teams in a high-pressure, fast-paced environment

Web Development Engineer II
(Woot Inc, Seattle, WA)

The sun rises across a bitter pool of half-eaten salami slices. There's a rattle in the air; it's coming from the computer across the hall. You crawl towards it, slowly. Your lungs ache from holding your breath. There's a click, and a hiss, and then you see it: the digital behemoth. A monster that's been unsolved for the longest time. Fortunately, you know just what to do. And, having vanquished this particular assignment, you return to the village for a celebration. Huzzah! The Web Development team wins again!

We'll put it to you straight: if you're happy translating office meetings into code, you're stepping into the right job. But don't get cocky, WDE Warrior! It won't always be so direct! Sometimes you'll have to meet arcane business objectives as they shamble from their crypts, and corporate logic isn't as simple as C# or ASP.NET. But still, if you're able to work with a team, make things happen, think creatively and mix an adventurer's flair with clear deliverables, you'll be fine.

In this job, you’ll learn: the dungeons of coding can be very rewarding to an adventurer with skills. And maybe a map. You probably want a map.

Intangible benefits: if you ever run out of money, you could sell the map to a different WDE!

Potential hazards: only when your wicked half-brother plans to maneuver you out of your inheritance. Please take care of that outside of work hours, or use your personal time as needed.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: a swashbuckling daredevil type who always somehow ends a discussion by swinging out of the room on a curtain rope. Even if there's no curtains in the room.

Worst part of the job: when your boss forces you to be the one who explains to the writers why it's not technically a bug that their torrent of Infra-Man (1975) has been stuck at 98% for a week.

Make sure you bring: a store-bought copy of Infra-Man (1975) for the writers. They really want to watch it.

Responsibilities:

  • Strong engineering skills with a talent for prioritization
  • Clear communication skills with a consistent track record for delivery
  • A talent for creative engineering balanced with high quality and customer focus
  • Proficient with C, ASP.NET MVC, C#, JavaScript and HTML5/CSS
  • Comfortable with Scrum and a test-driven development to meet business objectives, build code continuously, and refactor systems as needed

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree in Computer Science/related field OR equivalent experience
  • 3+ years professional experience in software development
  • Experience crafting automated unit, integration, functional, and regression tests
    JavaScript, HTML5/CSS and ASP.Net competence
  • Experience using a client side UI framework such as Backbone.js, Ember.js, AngularJS and ReactJS
  • Experience integrating web services such as REST and Ajax

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 5+ years professional experience in software development including JavaScript, HTML5/CSS and ASP.Net
  • Experience in communicating with users, other technical teams, and management to collect requirements, describe software product features, and technical designs
  • Experience measuring and improving client side performance and scalability
  • Experience mentoring junior software engineers to improve their skills, and make them more effective, productive software engineers
  • Experience influencing software engineering best practices within your team
  • Proven ability to stay current with best practices in front-end development​

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

As you stand on the tip of the ocean cliff, your arms apart to call the rising sun into life, you look down at your followers and- well, the truth is, you're just going to be managing a team of engineers. Engineers who work at a fast pace in a dynamic environment, trying to think of and close every loophole before their stuff goes live. So of course they're going to nitpick at everything you say looking for loopholes! That's a good thing! That's their job!

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, seriously focused, and possibly have to take away the tiny helicopters if your team gets too unruly. Consider this your chance to be a guiding force in the grand dance that is the cosmos of Woot.

In this job, you’ll learn: that left to their own devices engineers are the most powerful agent of entropy the world has ever seen. That's why we need you.

Intangible benefits: the tiny helicopters offer excellent air defense against other departments that might otherwise steal your good ideas.

Potential hazards: if you don't remember to charge the batteries, the tiny helicopters might fall out of the sky. And then where will you be?

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: standing in the secret headquarters, looking out of the window, plotting the team's strategy for the future. And maybe you'd have an eye patch. That part's personal preference, though.

Worst part of the job: having to tell the eyepatch designer that their services are no longer needed.

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 Alien Queen statue will beat a two inch Boba Fett, every time.

Responsibilities:

  • 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
  • The ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment
  • An understanding of the e-commerce space and the ability to 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 and 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:

  • Prior experience as a software developer
  • Experience with .NET, Java, or C++ software development.
  • Experience with agile or other program management methodologies
  • 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

Marketing Specialist I
(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!" Is your idea of a fun weekend making sandwiches for sixty people based on a complex algorithm of who would most prefer what? Do you like to keep track of individual traffic patterns for fun, and occasionally maybe cross-reference them to find trends and their causes? Because, if so… we're interested.

We're looking for someone who understands that marketing is important, that it can shape the story of our shopping lives, and that it can lead us to a better tomorrow. And also someone who can forget all that poetry and give a KPI report to a room full of suits as required. It's a delicate balance, you see.

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

Intangible benefits: You'll be working with vital marketing data to plan vital marketing strategies, so you're pretty much going to know everybody. And possibly crush their dreams when their plans don't line up with the vital marketing data. It's a sad, harsh fact of corporate life.

Potential hazards: The tears of crushed dreams can make deep puddles. Watch where you step after a meeting or you might slip.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the aloof genius who is always ready for anything, has a thousand back-up plans, and never smiles. Like, never. Not even if someone tells a really good joke. And then, unexpectedly, you'll smile. And all the other heroes will go WHOA NO WAY THAT WAS A SMILE and then the story ends.

Worst part of the job: trying to translate data derived from testing into a metaphor about Star Trek. But here's a tip: instead of "cloud" say "V'Ger" instead!

Make sure you bring: your "Marketing Rules!" t-shirt. Or at least some numbers to prove why those shirts are no longer in line with our companies immediate goals.

Responsibilities:

  • Launching new programs and ensuring keyword freshness with respect to the current catalog
  • Daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly KPI reporting
  • Developing updates and communication for internal stakeholders
  • Testing and optimizing settings within channel platforms
  • Continuous improvements in performance through testing
  • Developing and continually reassessing a set of strategies to drive profitable growth.
  • Creating a roadmap of initiatives to enable the defined strategic objectives.
  • Working closely with vendors (Google, Rakuten, SEO Clarity) to understand their roadmaps and assess opportunities in relation to Woot.
  • Communicating performance and status to various stakeholders.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Strong background in analytical positions or consulting, with a bias towards B2C Marketing
  • 1+ year experience in Paid Search Marketing
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to work effectively across business and engineering teams to deliver business results.
  • Intermediate proficiency in Excel including functions and macros.
  • Intermediate proficiency in Google Suite including Analytics and AdWords.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree Math/Statistics, Economics, Computer Science, Business, Marketing or a similar field.
  • Excellent business judgment and an ability to think strategically and execute methodically.
  • Able to generate ideas and solve problems independently and consistent with Amazon’s core principles and position in the market segment.
  • Strong bias for action and sense of urgency; the ability to make things happen quickly.
  • Proven analytical and quantitative skills with a passion and aptitude for analysis.
  • Intermediate proficiency in SQL.

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. Here's how: by joining our company as a Sr. Vendor Manager for Woot's Amazon Marketplace. With us, you'll be part of a team that researches analyzes, and structures deals to perform at the highest level possible. In this role, you will apply a healthy balance of qualitative and quantitative analysis, analyze historical data and industry trends, and collect first-hand industry insights from existing Woot and Amazon buyers who are experts in their field. 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.

Intangible benefits: When you make a joke about measuring bouncy castle data at your fifth birthday party in order to track the key attributes and inputs that ensure performance, at least half of us will understand and by impressed by your thinking.

Potential hazards: all the special effects will look like someone drew them in Video Toaster. Remember those days? We were so innocent then.

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.

Responsibilities:

  • Building the deal program with Amazon’s GoldBox.
  • Analyzing large amounts of deal performance data to identify the attributes that determine a good deal.
  • Learning the “art of the deal,” the contextual elements that in the market segment, that impact whether or not a deal will perform.
  • Diving deep into post-humus deal performance to determine drivers and refine existing and/or future deal plans. Building a catalog of goods for the Certified Refurbished program.
  • Work with stakeholders to shape the future of the Certified Refurbished goods on Amazon.
  • Drive projects in pricing and replenishment to automate processes needed to sell goods on Amazon.

Basic Qualifications:

  • 5+ years in marketplace, e-commerce, project, business, and/or vendor management is required
  • Bachelor’s degree in business, operations, supply-chain or a related discipline
  • 2+ years of buying, preferably in an e-commerce environment
  • Thorough knowledge of and experience using Excel and/or Access databases
  • Experience presenting to Senior Leadership

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 7+ years in product, project or process management.
  • Proven track record in vendor negotiation and relationship management.
  • Experience owning and managing the entire supply base for a given category or product segment, ideally with consumer products.
  • Analytical and quantitative skills; ability to prepare data and metrics to back up assumptions and evaluate outcomes.
  • Demonstrated ability to present strategic concepts, evaluate tradeoffs and socialize opportunistic new ideas with business partners.
  • MBA or supply chain related masters preferred
  • Working knowledge of SQL and Data Warehouse

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

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.

  • Solid knowledge of database structures and tools
  • Experience leading or mentoring other developers

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience crafting automated unit, integration, functional, and regression tests

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 a Tibetan Butterfly isn't so bad, really. It's just a butterfly trying to get by in the world. Maybe it's got a van with some shag carpet and a cool 8-track. You two should hang 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 too much about poems and songs and memories of childhood, nobody's gonna want to hang out around your desk. 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 parks the van in your driveway and starts ranting about how people don't take it seriously as a weather controlling device. It'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 the 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?
