Posted by | December 17, 2010 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: Chattanooga, TN


At LifeKraze, we are encouraging the world to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Does it mean working up a sweat for two hours everyday in the gym? Not exactly. But we are encouraging people to put down the remote, steal their neighbor’s puppy, and take him for a walk around the neighborhood. And yes, you do get rewarded for things just like that. Maybe not by your neighbor who comes home to a missing puppy, but by your friends who think that’s active. We are changing the word “healthy” and applying it to anything that makes us feel good about ourselves. Got an A on your Physics exam? Had a picnic with your friend? Asked your girlfriend to marry you?  Sold two of your paintings? We want to know. Because being active isn’t just about being a gym rat, it’s about living. And now you get points for it. Everyone loves points. 
As an engineer at LifeKraze, we want you to think in Rails, but communicate with a sleek and fresh platform. Our engineers are expected to be the architects, the designers, the inventors that hit home runs (kapow) and develop new meanings related to social networking. We believe in teams and if you’ve got a brain, we want to see it work with ours. Now before you go and get all excited, make sure you’ve polished your ping pong skills, because we’re pros. We need talented brainstormers that want to show off their skills. We are a young, established team that is bringing a new social platform up to the plate. This isn’t t-ball anymore, boys and girls. We believe in this and we’re ready to play. We want you to eat, sleep, and dream in LifeKraze. Sleep… sleepzze… sleeraze… slipfekraze… LifeKraze.
We want our engineers to know Rails, MySQL, CSS, HTML5, javascript, and jquery.

  • Backend Development:
  • Ruby on Rails 3
  • MySQL
  • Javascript (especially jQuery framework)
  • Frontend Development
  • Javascript (especially jQuery framework)
  • HTML
  • CSS 3
  • Server Admin
  • UNIX environment
  • Rackspace hosting

What you’ll do:
Help design and architect new features. Passionately argue about the right way to do things. Always be confident of your talent. Work closely with the team to help develop features. Take ownership and help test, release, and maintain the code you write. Stay in tune with the latest cutting-edge technologies so you can keep up with us. Say, alas! once in awhile when you have a spark. Suggest the impossible, and make it happen.
Our office is an active environment and we are constantly adding new things to keep our employees happy. We have a ping-pong table, a basketball hoop, a dart board, and a sweet coffee maker. We are located in Chattanooga, TN the first city in the U.S. with 1/Gbps, and we’re right off of Main Street and across from a great local restaurant that brews their own beer.
We offer a competitive salary based off of multiple factors.
