Careers

Versatile Frontend or Backend Engineer


Required Skill Set

If you're into front-end engineering,

  • You know jQuery like the back of your hand, and you’re familiar with JSONP-based API’s and cross domain communication
  • You’re comfortable with HTML/CSS
  • MVC methodology, PHP don't scare you
  • Knowledge of Facebook’s API and JS library is a plus

If the backend is your specialty,

  • You love tracking and storing data and are familiar with database warehousing
  • You’ve experimented with NoSQL deployments (Cassanda, HBase, MongoDB)
  • You know exactly when MySQL sucks and when it's awesome

For both,

  • You’re flexible, creative, and passionate about working with smart people
  • You have excellent “big picture” skills; a fluency in English / Starcraft - not required :)

What you are working on

We believe in “always be releasing” and are building and deploying products in short time frames. We’re scaling a revolutionary API *fast* and you’ll have a large say in how it’s built and what applications it supports.

If you love building products like this but don't fit neatly into one of the buckets above, convince us you’re a hot shot and we’ll find a spot for you.

Social Proof

We’re a rapidly growing and highly visible startup in New York’s premier technology incubator launched by the City of New York and NYU Poly. We’re inventing and reshaping social commerce solutions for clients like Levi’s, 1800Flowers.com, Forbes and Estee Lauder and we work very closely with Facebook through its preferred developer program.
