I have seen mentions of a growing data team in some job postings, can anyone speak to the culture and tech stack for these teams?

    Search Wayfair technical incompetence (month or two old) or how to succeed at Wayfair (this past week) on blind, great posts that are worth reading if you are considering dropping an application.

      Most are, I mean look at the number of comments. Some people don’t comment cause they are afraid to get in trouble for it too. It’s a toxic place, I guess that’s what happen when your CTO has never coded and you promote lifers.

      Not all teams are bad. The bad ones are numerous though. Some teams are making efforts to change.

      Which category would you put the data engineering teams in, if that function is on a separate team

      I personally don’t have any experience with those teams/know what that even qualifies as here. I’m sure someone else in this thread would know. All I know is you gotta stay away from storefront 😂

    Wayfair is rapidly growing these teams to replace the current stack. You'll be expected to find a middle ground between backwards compatible and future looking.

      Any idea what they are replacing the old stack with?

      I don't think any decisions have been made. It's up to you.

      The Wayfair people on blind sure are a bitter group... Care to give any details relative to the teams I'm interested in?

      At least tell me who 'they' are ? Are you saying every single person there is bad?

      According to the latest Fortune article, our policy is to hire L6+ who are ex-consultants without the technical know-how or the explicit man management experience.

    There's new leadership afaik with the comp Intel people taking over all of this. Seems like they have the right plan - just early in the execution. It probably will depend the most what sto you then get assigned for how you like the work.
