Posted by | June 27, 2011 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: San Francisco, CA


Short Version:
-Small, stealthy team backed by DJF, Facebook Cofounder, Best Buy, and prominent angel investors
-Explosive growth in one of the hottest markets in the world
-Building very disruptive product combining the daily deal model with social, gaming mechanisms, location (mobile app) and context to create a next-generation e-commerce platform. Think of a cross between Yelp and Groupon
-Very hard technical challenges
-Competitive salary and substantial founding-level equity upside
-Product / service to be used by millions
Long Version:
Pinchit looks like a daily deal site, but we’ve been stealthily pioneering a contextual engine and product redesign taking local offers to the next level by getting the right deals to the right people. Here’s a few more nuggest: we have a hybrid mobile strategy, powerful and addictive merchant tools, and a community-oriented approach to democratizing local content for people to discover and share the amazing aspirational experiences around them. We just secured a round of funding (undisclosed amount) from DFJ and prominent angels including a Facebook Cofounder, we have a major partnership in place with Best Buy, and we’re on a rapid “hockey-stick” growth trajectory.
Our office is at 111 Pine Street, 2 blocks from the Ferry building, with enviable views of downtown and surrounded by awesome places to eat, drink, and network. We all have a “work hard play hard” attitude and a pretty casual, laid back office culture. People come in early but leave early as well – not the typical crazy startup environment but a more sustainable lifestyle. Sound interesting? Send us a note!

To apply: send resume to and links to things you’ve built
