Lead the team building cutting edge systems that are delivering personalisation to over 16M users
Depop is looking for a product-orientated Lead Software Engineer to join one of our core cross-functional teams.
You'll lead a team of engineers that are building and delivering industry-leading search and recommendation systems. We're currently recommending 500,000 unique items per day to our user base, and performing over 1.5 billion searches per month, with both systems continuing to scale as our user base grows globally.
Initially, your focus will be on improving our existing recommendation platform, with further greenfield projects on our 2020 roadmap to refine search results (moving from recency to relevance) and improve personalised browse experience. All the while, prioritising your team's professional growth, championing best practice software development and reinforcing a healthy engineering culture.
You'll be working in a technically innovative environment, building high-traffic and scalable distributed systems that service 10,000s of concurrent users, mentoring and coaching other engineers, and iterating and improving your teams work based on short feedback loops. Sound like your thing?
