Our goal is to build an engaging platform where as many programmers in the world hang out to solve interesting CS real-world problems across different domains and have fun. We’re just getting started with some really good algorithmic challenges.
We’re hiring a Product Hacker to focus on two important metrics –  Engagement (average time spent and interaction) and Retention (churn factor)We listen to our users a lot and been doing a bunch of experiments on our site – categorizing problems into different levels, loginless view to solve problems, introducing AI games (summergames.interviewstreet.com) which has made a ton of users happy. There are thousands of programmers every day solving challenges and having fun. 
Imagine if you grew this number by 10x or say, 100x? We’ve a very big aim – building a  Facebook for programmers, building a platform to bring together all hackers to our site. It’s probably like saying all the gold mines of the world is at one place.
