Jennifer Phillips and Kristin Filippelli never considered themselves “runners,” but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and gyms closed, they both were in search of ways to keep themselves going. Both are colleagues on the Partner Operations team at Wayfair who partner with Wayfair’s suppliers to provide consumers with the products they love through an exceptional customer experience. When they each found out that they were training for the 2021 Boston Marathon, they joined forces to mobilize their team and amplify their impact.

As most everyone knows by now, Wayfair is a major e-commerce company focused on furniture and home goods. What you may not be aware of are the many technical elements happening behind the scenes to ensure that 22 million products are delivered to you on time. This is an area I’m familiar with as I work in Wayfair’s International Supply Chain Engineering (ISC) department. A relatively new group, our journey began with a significant realization—we needed to break our monolith into microservices. Specifically, we needed to manage authorization across all of our new microservices. The answer was the Oso authorization framework. For this blog, I’ll walk through the steps we took to make these changes. This includes how we initially broke apart our monorepo, the process of writing a proof of concept with Oso, and how we moved to production with the support and collaboration of Oso’s engineers.
