Jobs

We are looking for a great senior developer to join our engineering team. This is a ground floor opportunity to join the team and serial entrepreneur Farhad Mohit (BizRate, Shopzilla) on what's sure to be a fun ride.

The right candidate will be someone who is able to work with a small distributed team of developers, code (mostly Java) on our front- and back-ends (mostly jQuery, GWT and AppEngine).

Our development environment relies heavily on continuous deployment. We focus on rapid iteration so we don't spend too much time building things that people don't need. You'll have to figure out how to build big features behind the scenes, then feel the joy of flipping a switch and seeing things go live immediately to our visitors!

What do we do?
