In our San Francisco office, we°re focused on connecting and matching people in love, life, work and beyond – all through brand new businesses beyond the OkCupid name. Recently, we°ve been experimenting with behavior-based matching, connected services, game dynamics, virtual currency, location and video. Our team in SF is composed of designers, engineers, entrepreneurs and marketers all working together to inspire, build, test and launch new brands. From an engineering perspective, we value well-designed, test-driven, service-oriented code.

We°re looking for people who can act decisively on the challenges they°re tackling.

We ’re looking for: BS/ MS in Computer Science; 3+ years professional experience building and shipping consumer internet products; Fluency in Ruby or JavaScript; Experience with relational database systems, both SQL and NoSQL flavors; Startup experience; and Enthusiasm about modern programming practices like TDD and pair programming.

What°s it like here? We ’re a small but growing team where your opinion matters and your ideas become brand new companies. We work on solving the difficult problems of bringing people together, and we try to solve those problems through design, research, math, data and experimentation.

We have an awesome new office based in SoMa (right near South Park), highly accessible by Muni and Caltrain. Our kitchen is always stocked with drinks and food. We spend time outside of the office having lots of fun, including sending our team to paid conferences and events, but also happy hours, poker nights, hiking / skiing trips, baseball games and gokarts! On top of all of that, we have flexible hours, amazing benefits and equity in the businesses we build.
