About KODA
KODA (http://koda.us) is the online community that is changing how employers connect with and recruit the emerging workforce – Gen Y. There are 42M+ members of this generation and over $5 Billion is spent by the employers seeking to hire them. Today’s recruitment solutions fall short in targeting the Gen Y market:  Facebook is personal, LinkedIn is for seasoned professionals and Monster is the “black hole” of resumes. KODA harnesses social media to engage candidates while providing employers targeted results. 
About the position
We are looking for versatile software engineers that have a good understanding of the whole web application stack, from systems architecture on the cloud, to back-end development with Ruby on Rails and front-development with jQuery. Because we release new features frequently, you must be an engineer that gets things done, works independently and takes ownership over product and engineering decisions. This is a full-time position at our downtown San Francisco office.
We have really cool projects in the pipeline: empowering our crawler, designing a next-generation recommendation engine, scaling our infrastructure to millions of users, optimizing our app at all levels, improving internal and customer analytics, going mobile…
We follow an agile development philosophy. We strive to have good code coverage, but are in no way religious about it! RSpec, Jasmine and Selenium are good friends of ours and we use continuous integration to make sure that new features do not mean new bugs.
There isn’t a template of the ideal candidate! We would love to hear from you if you think the KODA culture would be a good fit.
You should meet the following criteria:
  • at least one year working professionally with Ruby on Rails
  • Javascript experience, preferably jQuery
  • good understanding of algorithms and complexity
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s in Computer Science preferred but not required
Ideally, we would love for you to have had exposure to the following:
  • test-driven development
  • engineering experience on a high-volume website with scalibility challenges
  • crawler or recommendation engines
  • statistics, data mining, analytics
If you read HackerNews like a monk and/or have a Github account to showcase your talent, let us know!
