Woot! is the original daily deals website and continues its longstanding tradition of having people who are far smarter than us say "hey that shouldn't work, what on earth are you doing?" If you're still reading, hopefully it is because you are as ridiculous as we are and want to help us bring people amazing deals on products at prices that perplex them in a positive way. We are looking for a creative and clever Senior Software Development Engineer to help us use all those fancy buzzwords that hopefully will be picked up by a job description SEO bot like Machine Learning, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, and other fancy tools that AWS just shipped.
