If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: guest-starring to finish the plot line you were in when your book was cancelled. Nothing against you personally, it's just the kids today want dark stuff, like Sandman and The Dark Knight. There's no room for a monthly coming-of-age story about a young person and their Ops. Well, maybe at Dark Horse.

Worst part of the job: bath day. Ops have razor-sharp tentacles that only come out when they're exposed to water.

Make sure you bring: your Opsiedeck. Then, when you get an Ops you don't already have, you can record it!

Sr. Retail Product Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

When you saw My Fair Lady you admired how that old guy drove interest in the guttersnipe until she was a viable long-term investment.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: trying to convince the team leader that action figures would generate revenue that could go to upgrading the satellite computer (less a small stipend for yourself, of course).

Worst part of the job: Thursdays. Unless you like accordions. Or screeching polecats.

Make sure you bring: a pen that reads "Property of Woot.com" on the side. Oh, you don't have one of those? Well- good. Guess you're NOT the person who stole our pen. We just had to be sure. You understand, don't you?

Associate Vendor Manager, Home.Woot
(Woot Services, LLC, Carrollton, TX)

On the walkway that leads to the Forbidden Temple you’ll face off against six well-trained capoeria masters who also have swords. You’ll parry, they’ll thrust, you’ll dodge, they’ll counter. In the end, you’ll be victorious. Inside the temple you’ll read the symbols on the wall and laugh. “It warns of customer-facing details,” you’ll scribble down in your journal. “Perhaps there’ll be larger project initiatives ahead, forcing me to drive process improvements for the entire team.” But it won’t phase you, because you’ll have spent time leveraging strong project management skills with full ownership over key processes. For you’ll have been an Associate Vendor Manager. And possibly you’ll also have a magic whip. That last part’s up to you, of course, we aren’t gonna supply it. Paper clips, yes, magic whip, no.

In this job, you’ll learn: how to defeat snakes. PRO TIP: close a deal with the mongoose first, and use that as leverage.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: working as an Associate Vendor Manager, but for stuff like space station parts and skids of invulnerable capes. Somebody’s gotta do the logistics, after all.

Worst part of the job: When you run into those capoeria masters at the mall, after hours. What do you say? Do you say hi? Do you just ignore each other? Awk-ward.

Light a lantern! Summon a turnkey! For you just might be the bright, motivated, hardworking individual we're looking to force into the iron mask of a warehouse fulfillment associate. The ideal candidate possesses a strong work ethic, attention to detail, the ability to meet deadlines, and a commitment to customer service as it relates to product fulfillment, and is willing to swear no connection with a group of musketeers who intend a bold attempt to subvert the rule of Louis XIV and place the exiled Philippe upon the throne.

You're smart enough to recognize that the human race has been beat.

So give in! Prove to the iPhones and Androids that you ARE worthy to survive in the new handheld empire! Come join us as we build the mobile and tablet experience for Woot customer on iOS and Android. You'll work directly with project management (a.k.a a giant looming one button monolith) to define new features, translate designs into shipped applications, and bring the full Woot experience to the world of the mobile.

In this job, you’ll learn: That being passionate about providing an exceptional customer experience is the only thing saving you from working in the mines where they find the gems for all those puzzle games.

Intangible benefits: We use Scrum and test-driven development to meet business objectives, build code continuously, and refactor systems as needed. And who doesn't love Scrum, right?

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one who says "I JUST NEED YOU TO BUY ME A FEW MORE SECONDS WHILE I FINISH HACKING" just as the bad guys kick in the door.

Worst part of the job: when you see Scrum with some other programmer. It's like Scrum doesn't even care that you're right there. RIGHT THERE.

Make sure you bring: your mobile device. We don't actually have one of our own, you see, and we'll probably want to borrow yours when we order pizza. Do you want pizza? Oh, hey, we forgot our wallet this morning, is there any chance that maybe you could spot us a couple bucks?

(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

You played your heart out, but the major leagues... well, you gave it your best shot. And maybe some other people had the contacts, but nobody will ever catch things better than you. If only you had a job, some sort of job that let you show off your catching talents. It wouldn't even matter if that same job also required you to pull, and squeegee, and maybe provide quality control on the side. As long as you could catch things, the way you've always wanted to do, ever since you were a child. A job like that, you'd be happy in it forever, wouldn't you? Well, friend... it could just be your lucky day.

The Press Is Life. The Press Is Love. The Press Is What We Think Of First In The Morning. The Press Is What We Think Of Last At Night. The Press Is The Sun. The Press Is The Moon. The Press Is Our Goal. All Hail The Press.

We’re hoping to find someone who can read all that with a straight face. But even if you giggle a bit, don’t worry. As long as you can handle an M&R Auto Press, have an eye for quality, keep records well, meet all those requirements below, and always put the Press first before all other machines, you’ve got as good a chance as everybody. Except maybe that guy in the “I Heart The Press” t-shirt. He’s currently the front runner.

Worst part of the job: the guy who writes the job descriptions is trying to bring back “NOT!” for some reason. Stay away from him.

Make sure you bring: your press pass.

Responsibilities:

  • Mount and adjust screens on the press, adjust press speed and pressure, ink the printing press, load product and adjust press.

First project: a spell-checking program that doesn’t try to turn omniverse into omnivores.

In this job, you’ll learn: the proper way to enter a room so as to minimize your chance of being hit with a Nerf dart.

Intangible benefits: when you bring a huge box of donuts your developers will look at you the way a newborn puppy looks at its mother.

Potential hazards: only if you don’t set the donuts down fast enough.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the mysterious shadowy figure, probably with an eyepatch, who coordinates the team from a secret, undisclosed location.

Worst part of the job: finding the secret, undisclosed location where we put your desk. After all, if we told you where it was, it would no longer be undisclosed.

Senior UX Designer
(Woot Workshop, Seattle, WA)

UX! See that? It's a perfectly formed U and a perfectly shaped X. Pretty good, huh? Yeah, we're pretty proud of how well we designed that UX up there. But maybe, just maybe, you can do better. So if you think you can UX up to our level, well, give it a shot. But we've got to warn you. We've been typing "UX" for years now. We're prrrretty good at it.

That having been said, if you think you're the talented Senior UX Designer who can outshine an UX like this - UX! - then give us a jingle. You'll need to be comfortable with all manner of visual design projects, from a template-based icon to interactive web features to Heaven knows what else. Innovation and independence is valued highly, but we'll still expect you to listen to our dumb ideas and make them work. Applicants will be evaluated primarily on their online portfolios; failure to provide work samples (and your role in each) will pretty much guarantee that we won't call you. Coding or other multimedia production skills are a bonus. Also you need to be able to write "UX" without any typos. Think you can handle that?

In this job, you’ll learn: that showing off a portfolio which demonstrates how you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including: color, layout, typography, and illustration, an in-depth understanding of web design principles and usability, and a solid grounding in the possibilities (and limitations) of current and emerging web technologies and trends is literally the only way to impress us. Not counting the guy who did fifty thousand jumping jacks without taking a break. Now THAT was impressive.

Intangible benefits: it's fun to watch people doing jumping jacks in the parking lot, if that's what you mean.

Potential hazards: the heartbreak of seeing a person who's just done 49,999 jumping jacks collapse into a puddle of tears, knowing they missed the record by mere inches.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: a billionaire named Jack with radiation-enhanced jumping powers (who hopefully does some UX work on the side).

Worst part of the job: when the boss calls you in to ask why you misspelled "UX" for the third time. Seriously. Get yourself together.

Make sure you bring: a portfolio which demonstrates how you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including: color, layout, typography, and illustration, an in-depth understanding of web design principles and usability, and a solid grounding in the possibilities (and limitations) of current and emerging web technologies and trends. Just in case you hadn't caught on to how serious we are about that part.

Responsibilities:

  • Create a world-class customer experience and beautiful visuals that support and reinforce Woot’s vision, brand, and business objectives
  • Drive creative development and be the primary point of contact with key stakeholders on retail UX design initiatives, strategy and implementation
  • Partner closely with cross-functional teams to define feature requirements via empirical online data, usability findings, market research, and proven UCD principles
  • Provide thought leadership in architecting a near and long term design vision for customer discovery, consideration and purchase from Woot.com
  • Provide creative direction to other designers on the team and external creative partners
  • Understand and respond to performance data, steering the strategy of future creative directions
  • Define patterns and advocate for consistency, while fostering inspiration innovation

Basic Qualifications:

  • An online portfolio that demonstrates your ability to turn ideas into a strong and unique creative vision. Please add your online portfolio link at the top of your resume when you apply.
  • 5+ years of relevant professional experience as a creative lead on UX Design projects
  • Ability to successfully present designs to senior business leaders
  • Ability to manage and refine the workflow, design and approval processes
  • Ability to work cross-team and synthesize feedback and input from merchandising, marketing, product management and development
  • Experience managing multiple projects at one time to make aggressive deadlines
  • Fluency in English required
  • Expertise in current and emerging front-end technologies, UX trends, and best practices
  • Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash, Freehand or Illustrator, Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS coding

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Team player with refined and assertive leadership skills – ability to positively influence change through inspirational design, solid rationale, supporting data and diplomacy
  • Relentless desire for innovation balanced with business needs and customer expectations
  • Knowledge of information architecture, usability, and e-commerce design best practices
  • Expertise in using data to driven design improvements (usability testing, A/B testing, and site-metrics)
  • Unwavering attention to detail with an acute awareness that everything counts

You're one part Captain Kirk, one part Han Solo, a quarter Captain Sheridan and a bit… aw, who are we kidding? The truth is, you're going to be managing a team of developers. Developers who work at a fast pace in a dynamic environment, trying to think of and close every loophole before their stuff goes live. Of course they're going to nitpick at everything you say!

The right candidate will know how to keep this rag-tag band of (extremely talented) misfits working as a solid team. You'll be hands-on, working to build Woot's new e-commerce platform using Amazon services, and possibly have to take away their tiny helicopters if they act up. Consider this your chance to be an IRL Dungeon Master. Except you can't make the city watch appear the moment your PCs act up.

In this job, you’ll learn: that, left to their own devices, developers are the most powerful agent of entropy the world has ever seen.

Intangible benefits: it'll be really easy to get people to come over when you want to have a beer and board game night.

Potential hazards: it'll be really hard to get people to leave your beer and board game night until there's a clear winner.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the well-respected leader of a different super-team from an alternate Earth now trying to fit in. Possibly you'd change your costume.

Worst part of the job: Finding a new costume. Like, do you wear a wig and fishnets? Or a strange helmet? Or something with a lot of pouches that'll only last until the next reboot?

Make sure you bring: something cool to put on your desk. The cooler it is, the more power you'll have. For example, a ten foot high Galactus statue will beat a two inch Boba Fett, every time.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop the long-term strategy for your programs and translate that into an achievable road map/action plan
  • Responsible for the overall systems development life cycle
  • Management and execution against project plans and delivery commitments

Software Developer
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

If there's one thing software developers like to do, it's write subtle romantic poetry. So get ready, potential applicant! You're entering a realm that few today dare to enter! Of course, in between the sonnets and the odes, you'll probably be asked to be responsible for development and maintenance of the business systems software used for backend order fulfillment, reporting, and various tools used to run the Woot business. But c'mon, we know that's just for show, right? What a tech company wants these days is a new way to say "I love you."

In this job, you'll learn: that moon/june/spoon is frowned upon by corporate.

Intangible benefits: none, save the touch of a silken hand against your sapphire cheek upon which the tears of love have grown hard and cold. And sometimes the people in your row will snap their fingers in approval.

Potential hazards: when someone gets all in your face like "Yo, that ain't no spondee I ever heard of!" and you've got to throw down to protect your rep.

If Woot were a superhero team, you'd be: one of the yellow narration boxes at the top of the page.

Worst part of the job: Trying to figure out which part of this job description is telling the truth. After all, software development is about solving puzzles that might seem hard to decipher. See? We know what we're doing sometimes.

Make sure you bring: a copy of Ulysses for your shelf. You don't ever have to read it, just owning it will make you look smart enough. If anyone asks how you liked it, just bluff. They probably haven't read it either.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Generally requires a B.S. degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics

Quality Assurance Engineer
(Woot Inc, Carrollton, TX)

If you pass a stack of dirty dishes, you can't help but rinse them and sort them by size. If your cat is on the right side of the couch (where you keep your remote, you pick up that cat and move it directly to the left. You're the sort of person who wants a world filled with quality, and you demand it from others. We want you to demand it from our team too.

If you're passionate about customer experience, able to write and execute clear and maintainable tests to ensure that every release meets quality and performance standards, comfortable with Scrum and test-driven development, into C# and Xamarin to support iOS and Android devices, and still losing your mind that we didn't close that parenthetical statement up there, you might just be an excellent fit!

Intangible benefits: when we take out the medallion that goes with the Ark, you'll be able to say "Hey! There's something written on the back!" and then we can adjust our staff. That's true Quality Assurance in action, you see.

Potential hazards: Only if we try and open the Ark. You know how that goes, right?

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: one of those old 1920s pulp heroes with rolled up shirt sleeves and a serious budget for travel. Which, of course, you'd inspect meticulously for mistakes.

Worst part of the job: Not being able to look when the Ark is open. It always sounds so cool and people are like "Aaa! Aaa! This is amazing even though I'm melting!"

Make sure you bring: some cool theme music. Seriously. It's gotta be really cool.

The Woot writing team, the people who made ecommerce funny, tedious, heartbreaking, clever, and/or annoying seeks a workaholic writer with experience in being hilarious for money.

Potential hazards: only if you ask "Would you guys rather fight a hundred duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?"

Worst part of the job: Oh, you'll find out. You'll find out. Ahahaha! AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Visual Designer
(Woot Workshop, Seattle, WA)

Picture a red line. Now picture a green line. Now the red line and the green line cross. If you're already thinking about how this seems incorrect and could be better optimized by blahblahblah CONGRATS because YOU are A VISUAL DESIGNER and we might just be looking for someone like you to handle everything from simple promotional graphics to dazzling site take-overs. What, haven't you ever heard about our annual Red Line Green Line March?

F.Y.I.: applicants will be evaluated primarily on their online portfolios; failure to provide work samples, and your role in each, will pretty much guarantee that we won't call you and will probably sigh as we crumple up your resume and throw it over our shoulder. Additionally, your portfolio must demonstrate that you have an excellent eye for graphic design, including color, layout, typography, and illustration. If you have coding or other multimedia production skills that’s a bonus, but let's see your book first.


In this job, you’ll learn: that, in the words of the immortal Dolly Parton, it takes a lot of work to look this cheap!

Intangible benefits: Sometimes you'll get to dodge Nerf darts when walking past the developers, and that'll make you feel like you're in The Matrix

Potential hazards: The developers have amazing aim. Especially with that blow gun. You'll have to be quick.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: the one with the best themed identity! You'd have a logo and a cave and a vehicle and all your friends would have names that synergized with yours!

Worst part of the job: Breaking it to a potential sidekick that the name they like doesn't synergize with yours. Especially if they swore an oath on the graves of their loved ones. That's never an easy discussion.

Make sure you bring: a red pen and a green pen. But only during March. The rest of the year it won't matter.

Responsibilities:

  • Create world-class visuals that support and reinforce the Woot vision, brand, and business objectives
  • Collaborate with other UX team as well as product management, development, and business teams to deliver high-quality, scalable, on-brand graphic solutions to build a superior customer experience.

Vendor Manager
(Woot Services, LLC, Seattle, WA)

You're passionate. Proven. Stalwart. You do astronavigation equations in your head. You've got a talking Trans Am and a sidekick played by a comedian. Your voice has been described as "honey made of lightning" and you speak more languages than there are countries. And when you take off your motorcycle helmet, people gasp in amazement at how you glow. At least, that's how they'll portray you when they make a movie about Vendor Managers in Seattle. The truth? Hey, since when have movies cared about the truth?

But if you're willing to be a passionate customer and category advocate, if you've got proven analytical capabilities, if you can handle project management while multi-tasking across tight deadlines, and you're ready to take ownership of forecasting, monitoring, understanding and reporting on your category while driving strategic projects to achieve business objectives… well, you might just have what it takes. And don't worry, Hollywood will never know about that time you walked back to your desk with a little piece of toilet paper stuck to your shoes.

In this job, you’ll learn: that being an effective negotiator, leader and communicator doesn't translate well on film. What about we make that "karate champion with a laser whip" instead?

Intangible benefits: You'll be working with very important partners and vendors, having conversations. In the movie, that'll be a wrestling match with undead Aztec warriors. See how it works? It's easy!

Potential hazards: You'll have to work with the writing team and they'll keep suggesting things like "karate champion with a laser whip" and "wrestling match with undead Aztec warriors" over and over again.

If Woot were a superhero team, you’d be: off in your own book, occasionally popping up in one of the big crossover events.

Worst part of the job: casting the person who will play you in the movie. Maybe Jennifer Lawrence? Or, if your a guy, Jennifer Lawrence using a deep voice? Hey, she's really talented, she could totally pull it off.

Make sure you bring: a passion for retail, a high level of flexibility, a commitment to your work, and a sense of humor. And possibly Jennifer Lawrence's cell phone number, if you have it.
