OkCupid is working on experimental products, and we’re looking for entrepreneurial, free-thinking, systems-distributing engineers to join us. We’re a small team and we’re growing fast. Our work improves millions of lives and is redefining the way society thinks about online dating. We work fast, have fun and ship often.
 
In our San Francisco office, we’re focused on connecting and matching people in love, life, work and beyond – all through brand new businesses beyond the OkCupid name. Recently, we’ve been experimenting with behavior-based matching, connected services, game dynamics, virtual currency, location and video. Our team in SF is composed of designers, engineers, entrepreneurs and marketers all working together to inspire, build, test and launch new brands.
From an engineering perspective, we value well-designed, test-driven, service-oriented code. We’re looking for people who can act decisively on the challenges they’re tackling. Our process is small-a agile; we value both usability and technical design, and technical itches do get scratched here. If you have problem solving-skills and interest in working with rich data, we’d love to hear from you.
 
Position: Senior Software Engineer
We’re looking for:
  • A degree in Computer Science or related field (or equivalent experience);
  • Battle tested experience building and shipping consumer internet products;
  • Fluency in Ruby, Python, JavaScript or another modern programming language;
  • Experience with relational database systems, both SQL and NoSQL flavors;
  • Familiarity with computer science concepts; and
  • Enthusiasm about modern programming practices like TDD and pair programming.
 
Bonus Points if you have:
  • Used iOS or Android development tools;
  • Designed products around a Service Oriented Architecture;
  • Applied functional programming concepts in your Ruby, Python or Javascript code; or
  • Tuned deployed applications for scalability and performance.
 
What’s it like here?
  • 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 experimentation.
  • We have an awesome new office based in SoMa (right near South Park), highly accessible by Muni and Caltrain. Our kitchen is always stocked with drinks and food.
  • We spend time outside of the office having lots of fun, including sending our team to paid conferences and events, but also happy hours, poker nights, hiking / skiing trips, baseball games and gokarts!
  • On top of all of that, we have flexible hours, amazing benefits and equity in the businesses we build.
 
To apply, please submit:
  • A link to your github profile or other code/work samples (required);
  • Your resume or Linkedin profile; and
  • A quick note on why you’re excited to join our team.
