What is BrandYourself?
BrandYourself is the first purely web-based platform that makes it easy for non-techies to control how they look online.

Who are 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.
