Want to work at a start-up where you can really make a difference?
Glassdoor, the world’s fastest growing career community and 2013 Webby Winner for “Best Employment Website”, is looking for a talented Lead Java Software Engineer to help take our product to the next level. This is your chance to share your work with a worldwide community of over 20M members and make your mark on the #1 employment app on Facebook – and we’re just getting started.
As a Lead Java Software Engineer, you will play a central role in the design and development of the Glassdoor product. The ideal candidate will have a passion for development and a strong background in building dynamic, high-volume web sites with Java using an Agile development methodology.
As a fast-growing startup, we look for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment – which means wearing many hats, being able to change direction quickly, and showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises. In this role you work with a small, collaborative team of engineers, product managers, and designers – so excellent interpersonal and communication skills are also a must. But most importantly – we look for people that can prioritize, multi-task, and deliver – because it’s a lot more fun to get things done.
