Voxer has grown massively in just a few months. We are now the fastest growing voice application in the world and we need your help to keep growing. We are solving really hard problems at massive scale with Node.js, Riak, Redis and run on Joyent Cloud. |
We are generating a lot of data in the process - more than 25 billion events every day. Hidden inside this mountain of data are crucial insights into how to make our users happier, make our service better, and keep our operating costs down. The thing is, taming this data beast is hard, and not everybody has the right mindset to do the job.
We just jumped into the Hadoop ecosystem and are running our own cluster which processes terabytes of data. If you love working on these kinds of problems, get in touch and maybe we can figure them out together.

We are dedicated and solely focused on building the next generation of communication. The problems we°re facing are at a scale only seen at companies like Twitter and Facebook and we°re looking for exceptional people who can help us tackle them.
We closed our first outside round of funding last spring, and our brand new offices are right off Market Street in San Francisco. There°s tons of restaurants and shopping nearby at Westfield and Union Square to spend your hard earned cash on, and if you°re a musician there°s a few outside on the street that we wouldn°t mind you teaching a few new songs to. There are plenty of MUNI lines right outside, BART is a block away, plus the Ferry to Oakland and Marin is a pleasant fifteen minute stroll or five minute bus ride away.
