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.

Skills and Requirements

7+ years of software development experience on large scale, high-volume sites

Experience in engineering leadership roles, including establishing best practices, creating core architecture for a site and mentoring more junior engineers on the team

Experience with “faster, lighter” Java tools including refactoring IDE’s, Spring, Hibernate, Lucene and other open source technologies

Understanding of presentation layer technologies such as HTML, CSS, templating frameworks (Sitemesh, Freemarker, Velocity, Tiles), Javascript, AJAX and Javascript libraries (YUI, Dojo, GWT)

Bonus: experience working on information retrieval or hard core search technologies

Bonus: experience building mobile web applications or products for international audiences, including localization

Extra Bonus Points: you’re fun to be around!
