Curalate is looking for talented software developers to join our team. Our engineering team today is deep in the trenches -- tackling some of the gnarliest problems out there at the intersection of computer vision and big data -- and we're looking for a few good coders to join us.

Although experience with our existing technology stack is great, we're much more interested in hiring developers with exceptional problem solving skills, creative out-of-the-box thinking, and comfort with quickly learning, evaluating, and deploying new technologies. While we're not looking for any specific industry experience (we'll hire recent grads), you should come prepared to join a fast-moving team. You'll be expected to dive into our stack and toolkit, and start shipping code on day one. We're not hiring code monkeys; you'll be given substantial feature ownership, and we'll expect you to contribute product ideas as well as code. Above all else, we're looking for others who are as excited above the potential in this space as we are, and who will be willing to join us in moving fast and breaking things as we execute against that vision.

We're not language zealots; we believe in using the right tool for the job, and are comfortable with a polyglot codebase. That said, today we lean on:

Languages: Scala, Javascript
Frameworks: Storm, Lift, Scalatra, Akka
Infrastructure: AWS
Databases: Cassandra, MySQL (RDS), DynamoDB, Redis, Memcached
Front End: jQuery, Bootstrap

(Production experience with any of these technologies is not required. However, candidates will, at a minimum, want to have experience with an object-oriented language like Java, C++, or C#).
