  1. Senior Applied Scientist Interview

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Etsy (United States)


    The interview process took 2 full months. The questions at each stage of the interview were interesting, but the candidate experience overall was terrible.

    In the first round, there were 2 1-hour phone screens that focused on ML Basics and coding. It took >2 weeks for the team to let me know I'd passed to the final round (and this only after I'd sent multiple messages to remind them I was excited to hear from them).

    The final round was 5 1-hour interviews focused on coding, systems design, and applied ML. It took the team another 2 weeks to get back to me just to tell me the position had been filled. That "position is filled" email came promptly after my second "I have other offers, how're things looking?" message, suggesting they had forgotten about me. The email was also short and generic, and contained absolutely no feedback about my onsite interview itself despite the 7+ hours I'd invested with the team thus far.

    Tell me about a model you're familiar with

Members of our employee resources groups recently enjoyed an in-person breakfast and networking event at our Brooklyn office. Our ERGs continuously aim to create a positive and inclusive workplace culture and this event further encouraged this goal by providing an opportunity for us to connect, share and celebrate across tangential ERGs. Additionally, our Black Resource & Identity Group at Etsy (BridgE) celebrated a monumental milestone: 100+ members! "Communities are important because they provide a sense of connection, a sense of purpose, and a sense of shared identity, all supporting perpetual growth. Belonging to a strong community also provides an environment where people with different views, experiences, or beliefs can learn from one another, helping each of us reach insights that we may not have reached on our own." shared BridgE Co-Chair, Jerry A. Higgs, PhD. This call to action for everyone to do their part in establishing a strong community – within and across ERGs – resonated with ERG leaders and members alike.

Curious how Etsy keeps nearly 100 million listings in sync, in real-time, with Offsite Ads across 12 countries and on 3 marketing platforms? With sellers frequently updating and ultimately selling a wide variation of listings, ensuring ads were always up to date presented a particularly unique challenge for our engineers to tackle. In our most recent Code as Craft post, Software Engineer Joe Torraca shares how we utilize real time streaming on Kafka pipelines to update listings with seller changes, currency conversion rates, and shipping prices from carriers, all while leveraging a few ML models.
