Software Engineering Manager – Pricing
Zulily’s Merchant and Vendor Platform team is looking for a Software Engineering Manager to lead our Pricing Automation team. In this highly visible position, you and your team will own the end-to-end pricing components from acquiring competitor prices through publishing computed product prices to Zulily’s site. You will work with Product Managers, analytics team, and our Merchant team to determine the algorithms to offer customers great products at prices good enough to brag about.
The ideal candidate has successfully built automated pricing and price-scraping systems before and understands the complexities of stream-oriented processing at scale in addition to the more traditional frontend/backend microservices and sql/nosql databases.

You love to collaborate with others. You plan for the long term and execute well. You embrace our principles, such as “Do What’s Right”, “Be Brave”, and “Act with Empathy”.
