You will be a key member of our technical team working closely with our graphic designers, UX/UI designers and product managers to improve current features and develop new ones.

We Offer
We invest in the best people and treat them right. We offer equity and great benefits. Your work will see the light of day, and your code will be free as in freedom. Most importantly, we offer a challenge: to build software that will help change the status quo.

With all honesty, our startup is working on developing the future of the Web. The type of program that we are building is one that will be huge in the upcoming years. I wish I was joking about it but I am not. We are in a technology field were companies such as Microsoft, IBM and others have invested billions of dollars and have not been successful due to missing key elements of user interaction. Thats were we come in! For the past two years we have been studying and analyzing user web behavior in order to develop our software in a way that no one is doing at the moment.

Best of Luck,

Rooms Team.
