About Us:
CrowdFlower is changing the way work gets done. We build a quality control system that distributes work to millions of people around the world, and analyzes the results to guarantee the highest possible accuracy. We're 45 people based in the Mission District of San Francisco, have a ton of plants in the office, and a real business model.

The Job:
We're looking for someone who's equally comfortable relentlessly pursuing a task independently or pairing up to get a job done. You should be able to design and implement the best solution to a given problem from start to finish (it doesn't need to look pretty, but that's a huge plus). You'll be working on the core CrowdFlower platform as well vertical applications of our technology, for example see RTFM: http://rtfm.crowdflower.com

Our applications are used by thousands of people every hour around the world. Everything our engineers do has real and tangible impacts. You won't be just another cog in the machine.

A few things you'll focus on as a Solid Fullstack Engineer:
Distilling complex requirements into simple interfaces
Defining the future of CrowdFlower's platform
Building new products that use the core CrowdFlower platform
Create interactive charts and diagrams: https://senti.crowdflower.com/datasets/110/t/ca46e7ae11ac49f0
Improve the interface that tens of thousands of CrowdFlower contributors use everyday

Must-have:
Prior experience hacking on at least one significant production-level Web app
Experience in multiple programming languages (we primarily use Ruby, Clojure, and JavaScript)
A solid command of JavaScript. When something breaks, you either know exactly why it broke, or can find out easily.
Designed new interfaces - thinking up a creative solution and being able to implement it effectively
The ability to manage your time and projects yourself. We don't micromanage

FTW:
Experience with D3
Mobile web development
Crowdsourcing – the name of our game – big ups if you're familiar
Git skills and GitHub repos full of cool stuff you've hacked on.

We use the best tools, so let's talk keywords. Show us your experience in:

Git
jQuery
MooTools
ember.js
D3
Ruby
Redis
PostgreSQL
Kafka
Hadoop
Zookeeper
Amazon Web Services (S3, EC2, Mechanical Turk, DynamoDB – the whole #!)
