Posted by | September 3, 2011 | Web Pro Job Tips

Location: San Francisco, CA

URL: http://www.okcupid.com/

OkCupid.com is working on some new experimental products, and we’re looking for entrepreneurial, free-thinking, systems-distributing hackers to join our team.  Come work with the OkCupid founders on very open-ended, exciting new projects. There is tons of room for creativity, expression, and impact on eventual products in this role.
While we have no firm plans, we anticipate work atop an open-source stack such as Ruby on Rails, Python, PHP or node.js, backed by open-source storage solutions like MongoDB, Redis or MySQL.  We only have the very basics built (like TameJS, developed in-house), so get in on the ground floor.
In this role as Lead Developer, you’ll be intimately involved with recruiting a team, choosing appropriate technologies, leading the development of a prototype and ultimately scaling up a finished product.
Looking For:
  • Strong experience leading teams of programmers
  • Strong experience in Ruby, JavaScript, PHP, Python and/or other scripting languages
  • Strong experience with SQL, NoSQL and/or other disk-resident storage
  • Experience with a compiled language, like C++, Java, or C#
  • Experience debugging strange networking and kernel bugs
  • Deep experience with distributed systems, RPC programming
  • Experience with Web technologies, like HTML, CSS, JavaScript
  • Ability to conceive of, and engineer new Web features
  • Familiarity with programming for mobile platforms and/or other JSON APIs
