About the Job:|
We have 20+ million visitors, 5 billion page views and 3 petabytes downloaded per month.
Build features used by millions of people the same day you commit your code - we push code every day.
Work in a rapid, iterative, metrics driven development cycle with developers who were top performers at Google, Microsoft and more.
Our core stack is PHP, Java and ORACLE and we use HTML/Ajax on the client. We are constantly looking for better ways to do things.
We’re a small team running a big site, and we get a lot of stuff done. Everyone loves to learn and doesn’t back away from challenges.
We have scads of awesome, meaty projects teed up to make the site easier to use, algorithmically smarter and personalized. We also need to build apis, reduce spam, scams & phishing and much more!
We routinely iterate and improve code to drive performance, efficiency and maintainability - we’re deeply concerned with the heath of our systems & the work/life balance of our humans.
Very strong programming skills. You routinely do things that amaze your peers and have done so for years . Other people ask for your opinion on what they are doing out of respect, not obligation.
You are comfortable working within a shared code-base; you understand the trade-offs in various design decisions and know when to leverage or evolve a code-base.
A passion for working in an agile, startup-like engineering team where action is the default and change is the only constant.
You know how to communicate outside of code - you enjoy verbal and written communication in English and are always up to talk.
5 - 10 years of professional software development experience
Nice to have:
BS or MS in Computer Science or related field strongly preferred - if not, you’ve taken it upon yourself to learn all the fundamentals.
We prefer polyglot generalists not specialist zealots.
Experience building, maintaining and enhancing widely-used and popular consumer websites.
Contributions to open source software projects
Experience with multi-threaded and/or asynchronous programming
Experience creating highly scalable systems, including clustered and/or distributed applications
Background in physical sciences, mathematics, or statistics (our founders are physics nerds)
