We’re a young quickly growing, venture-backed company
looking for the right teammate to fit our culture.
Is this right for you?
You’re a creative problem-solving teammate, not a 9-5er
looking to punch the clock.
You’re a LAMP rock star (not a diva). You’re opinionated
about how to do things a certain way with reasoning to back it up, and you’re
wiling come to solutions as a group. 
You’re a problem solver, you used to play with legos, and you push back
against normal convention because there are better, more efficient ways of
doing things.
You want to be part of team and you want your work to
shine.  You’ll be building new features
and releasing them every single week to hundreds of thousands of users. If your
users aren’t happy, neither are you.
You take pride in building in writing extendable, stable,
scalable code. You code because you want to, not because you have to. You work
well with deadlines and like rapid development.
Please don’t just send me your resume. To make sure you’re
not a bot, attach a picture of what you think bigfoot looks like (yes I’m
serious), some samples of your work, your twitter handle, your favorite web
application (tell us why you love it), and who you look up to as a programming
god (or goddess). Please don’t waste our time with a generic email that does
not touch on the points above. This is not your everyday job, none of us treat
it that way and we think you won’t either.
We love what we do and want to add people that feel the same

To apply: Individuals should apply to jointheteam [at] The above description outlines everything we expect in your application. IF YOU ARE A COMPANY – PLEASE DO NOT APPLY.
