The OkCupid Labs team values well-designed, thoroughly-tested, and service-oriented code, and people who can think nimbly and forcefully about the challenges they’re tackling. We work in an agile environment, though we put a lot of focus and value on (usability and technical) design. If you have great problem solving skills, know your way around Ruby, and love working with rich data, we’d love to hear from you.
What we’re looking for:
  • Battle tested experience in designing and shipping products against real-world use cases
  • Strong experience with Ruby (MRI, Rubinius, JRuby, your own implementation – whatever), Rack, and Rails
  • Experience with multiple databases/systems (Postgres, Redis, HBase, etc)
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a pair programming environment
  • TDD/BDD development experience
  • Algorithm design and analysis
  • A degree in Computer Science or related field
 
Bonus Points:
  • Experience designing service-oriented systems
  • Experience with functional programming (preferably Haskell or Clojure)
  • Performance tuning + scaling experience
  • Asynchronous service implementation in Ruby (EventMachine, etc)
  • Client-side development (Javascript, Coffeescript, Clojurescript… but no Dart)
 
What’s it like to work at OkCupid Labs?
  • We’re a small but growing team where your opinion matters and your ideas become brand new companies.
  • We work on solving the difficult problems of bringing people together, and we try to solve those problems through design, research, math, data, and running experiments.
  • We work hard but also spend time outside of the office having fun. We bring speakers and food in, we send our team out to conferences and events, and we have a kitchen stocked with drinks and food.
  • We have an awesome new office based in SoMa (right near South Park), highly accessible by Muni and Caltrain.
  • On top of all of that, we have flexible hours, amazing benefits, and equity in the businesses we build.
