Server Engineer

We°re looking for several server engineers to join our team.

Voxer has grown massively in just a few months. We are now the fastest growing voice application in the world and we need your help to keep growing. We are solving really hard problems at massive scale with Node.js, Riak, Redis and run on Joyent Cloud.

You°ll get to work on:
  • Likely the largest Node.js installation in the world.
  • One of the largest Riak installations in the world.
  • Many very large Redis instances.
  • Write code that touches millions of users every day.
  • Scaling and monitoring busy Node.js clusters with HTTP and JSON.
  • Work closely with the core Node and DTrace teams (we°re on Joyent and that°s where they work), as well as Basho and Redis core teams.
Some of the things we look for are:
  • Some formal education in Computer Science or equivalent, but the exact degree or number of years of professional experience you have isn°t as important as your enthusiasm and ability.
  • Generalists with experience of many parts of the server software / hardware stack.
  • Experience with Node.js, Riak, and Redis is very helpful. We depend on these technologies every day.
  • Experience with DTrace, Hadoop or Splunk is a plus. We are starting to incorporate these technologies into our operation.
  • If you don°t have experience on the above - ability to pick it up quickly.
  • Signs of an entrepreneurial or intellectual exploration.
  • Hacker-mentality. You°re scrappy and want to get things done.
  • You want to be part of the team building the next generation voice platform for hundreds of millions of people.
If you have a Github account - please submit it with your application.


Voxer is more than just a walkie-talkie app, it is one of the most used Push-to-Talk and messaging applications in the world. Voxer iOS and Android apps allow tens of millions of users across the world to communicate instantly. We°re making voice and multimedia communication faster, more efficient, and more social. Our goal is ambitious - we°re building the next generation communication voice service at the intersection between PTT, phone calls, SMS, conference calls, and multimedia messaging.

It°s no small feat to achieve, to keep one of the world°s fastest growing voice applications humming along and growing at a phenomenal pace. But we are 50 dedicated individuals who are putting some of the most exciting technology in the world to work right now - we are the world°s largest Node.js site, and we also run one of the largest Riak clusters in the world.

We are dedicated and solely focused on building the next generation of communication. The problems we°re facing are at a scale only seen at companies like Twitter and Facebook and we°re looking for exceptional people who can help us tackle them.

We closed our first outside round of funding last spring, and our brand new offices are right off Market Street in San Francisco. There°s tons of restaurants and shopping nearby at Westfield and Union Square to spend your hard earned cash on, and if you°re a musician there°s a few outside on the street that we wouldn°t mind you teaching a few new songs to. There are plenty of MUNI lines right outside, BART is a block away, plus the Ferry to Oakland and Marin is a pleasant fifteen minute stroll or five minute bus ride away.
