Come join us.
ABOUT BEHANCE:
We imagine a world where creative professionals and teams are more productive, more great ideas happen, and the best talent is matched with the best opportunity. Our development team is world class, composed of smart, passionate developers who want to build cool stuff.
We develop products and services that help make this dream a reality.

JOB DESCRIPTION:
Our ideal candidate is one who likes working throughout the LAMP stack.  Your favorite type of day is when you have to debug an API and client at the same time, all while tweaking the my.cnf and squashing the query that’s being run twice, for no good reason. 
You’ve had experience dealing with “luxury problems” like a rapidly growing user base, traffic spikes, crisis management, and growing data sets.  You can build real products from the ground up, no problem is insurmountable, and you’re determined to find ways to make it happen.
You are comfortable working in a collaborative team environment that feels a lot like family (in a good way). We’re not so much into hierarchy, we’re into transforming great ideas into revolutionary products. 
The Skills You Must Have:
 – Extensive knowledge of LAMP
 – A love/hate relationship with MySQL
 – Experience with building and consuming APIs / Web Services
 – Strong understanding of MVC frameworks
 – Experience with administering SVN
 – Knowledge of and experience with HTML, CSS, Javascript
 – Comfortable with AJAX based websites, JavaScript and jQuery, and debugging them.
 – A Stackoverflow account
We’re still building our dream team. If the person we described is you, well…what are you waiting for? Come join us.
