Warby Parker is a transformative fashion brand offering designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially-conscious businesses. We’re looking to hire an outstanding Senior Infrastructure Engineer who will be responsible for architecting and maintaining a robust distributed systems infrastructure that will enable the company to succeed as it grows. You'll be working in a fast-paced, fun environment, and your work will be seen by millions of people. While experience is appreciated, the ability to learn and apply new technologies is equally important-- if not more so! This is a salaried full-time position with benefits.
