WayfairBoston, MA3M ago

Shopping for the home is often overwhelming. Wayfair is an extreme case – it’s visited by two million people daily, shopping across more than 10 million products: Home furnishings, décor, home improvement, housewares, and more. Our software engineering teams work hard to conceal the complexity of this experience. Every customer should come away feeling like they’ve found the perfect item for them. Shopping for the home should be exciting, and we’re the team that makes that happen.


The Frontend Architecture team works with engineers throughout the organization to innovate on our frontend platform, and create an environment in which developers can build delightful user interfaces for our customers. We build out features using React with Redux and GraphQL, and a custom Sass framework that handles theming for our six brands and three international sites across all platforms. Frontend Platform engineers at Wayfair are JavaScript specialists that build the platform which powers the user interfaces for our five e-commerce websites seen by over two million customers every day.


We’re looking for a manager to lead the team and technical roadmap for the Frontend Architecture team, within Frontend Platforms. This team drives the vision for how we leverage the React.js and GraphQL powered framework at Wayfair, with ownership areas such as: data management libraries (redux, apollo, etc.), react router support, patterns for next-generation React features, JavaScript testing patterns, and more.
