Build new features on top of our existing tools and systems to help create and improve upon an amazing omnichannel experience for our customers and employees
Own the design, development, and deployment of back-end features for our retail technology systems
Work with others across the company, including the Retail, E-commerce, and Development teams, to promote and integrate new technologies and reusable components into their workflow
Who you are:
Equipped with 3+ years of experience in full-stack software development
Experienced building with Python, PostgreSQL, and RESTful APIs
A clear, friendly, and open-minded communicator (over email, in person, via carrier pigeon!)
Excited to collaborate with others across the Warby Parker technology ecosystem
Creative and empathetic, especially when it comes to design and development
Passionate about building features from concept to deployment
Not on the Office of Inspector General’s List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE)
Experience contributing to open-source projects

Warby Parker was founded with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. By circumventing traditional channels and designing our frames in-house, we’re able to offer top-quality glasses and sunglasses (plus an uncommonly delightful shopping experience) at a fraction of the traditional going price.
Since starting out in 2010, we’ve set up headquarters in New York City and Nashville, built our own optical lab, and opened retail locations all around the U.S. and Canada. As we grow, we’re committed to proving that businesses can scale and be profitable while doing good in the world. For every pair of glasses we sell, a pair is distributed to someone in need—to date, that’s over five million pairs.
Of course, all work and no play makes a dull workplace. Who likes that? At Warby Parker, you can look forward to company outings, volunteering and learning opportunities, and just great company. Teammates can also connect around common interests, backgrounds, and identities, no matter their home base, through our various employee resource groups. (We’re happy to say that the Human Rights Campaign has named us a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ employees!) That sense of community keeps us excited to walk through the door every day. Good work, good people.

Health, vision, and dental insurance
Flexible “My Time” vacation policy
Retirement savings plan with a company match
Parental leave (non-birthing parents included)
