Posted by | July 8, 2011 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: San Francisco, CA, USA


As knowledge workers, we and our loved ones spend most of our time living in programs (email, calendar, document editors, IDEs, etc.) that help us move and manage data. This is your opportunity to make that environment better, faster, and more humane.
We’re working on hard engineering problems in everything from algorithms to programming languages, compilers, databases, web technologies, sync, human-computer interaction, scalability, and systems architecture. We’ve worked on challenging projects in the past, but this one has consistently pushed our intellectual capabilities to the limits. We think this makes it more fun to come to work in the morning, and makes a programmer feel more like a craftsman than a mechanic.
As a company, we are built to last and have an awesome culture that encourages personal growth, wellness and working as a team of peers rather than a command/control hierarchy. Past accomplishments of our team members include co-founding facebook, building android’s end-to-end sync system and rebuilding facebook newsfeed.
