Posted by | November 28, 2011 | Web Pro Job Tips

Location: West Hollywood, CA


About Us:
We’re a small, twelve year-old company that’s run like a startup. We’ve never taken investments from outside parties and have been profitable for over 10 years.  There are currently only five of us in the US (and about 20 people overseas), but we’re beefing up our domestic team in an effort to increase horsepower and day-to-day communication.
We own about 25 websites that allow students to share and review course notes and research materials.  We don’t start working until 10am (unless you decide to come in early) and we work in a friendly, vibrant community in West Hollywood, California.  You probably haven’t heard of us, but a couple million people visit our sites every day and we push about a billion pageviews per year.
We provide an excellent opportunity for developers at all levels to learn, teach, and grow.  We offer health insurance, a good budget for your workstation setup, and chill work environment.  We care about three things: skills, work ethic, and culture.  If you’ve got skills and are a hard worker who knows how to have fun, we’d love to speak with you.
You’ll be responsible for:
  • Developing new features and applications for our websites.
  • Maintaining and constantly improving our current code.
  • Handling your own quality assurance and pushing your code live.
You should be well-versed in:
  • PHP
  • MySQL
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • OOP Concepts
You must be:
  • A self-starter who’s ready to dive in to unfamiliar code.
  • Someone who’s interested in constantly learning and improving themselves professionally and personally.
  • A team player.
It’d be great if you:
  • Have a degree in computer science, math, or a related field.
  • Have 3 or more years developing for the web.
  • Have experience working on ecommerce websites.
  • Enjoy coding personal projects in addition to your day-to-day work.
  • Health insurance
  • A good budget to customize your workstation
  • Office doesn’t open until 10am.  You can, however, come in earlier or later, and we’re sympathetic to LA traffic.
  • A fun, relaxed work environment
  • Flexible vacation time
