Sequoia Capital: Web Developer

Posted by | August 21, 2010 | Web Professional Jobs Blog

Location: Menlo Park, CA


Us: Sequoia Capital is a Venture Capital firm with a lot more interesting stuff going on in web development than you might expect. We are engaging with Pivotal Labs to develop the next generation of tools for our investment team and are seeking the right full time resource to join us, build cool stuff, own it, and iterate.
You: Driven by creating amazing user experiences and by making software that actually gets used. Interested in touching all aspects of the development cycle from product definition to first release to continuous improvement and evolution of features. Excited about being around startups and startup culture, you’ve worked at startups, but maybe now you’re interested in giving up some of the adrenaline for greater stability and work weeks under 60 hours (usually).
Skills: We need a Javascript and UI ninja with experience creating highly functional, sophisticated, yet minimalist tools that people love to touch. Our most recent stuff uses Rails so experience there is a plus but fundamentally we are looking for energetic, intelligent, creative people who can’t imagine working any way but agile. We are ready to learn and implement new and different tools. We haven’t even ventured into HTML5 and mobile versions of our apps but are eager to find someone to lead us there.
Culture: The tech organization is small and flat so you won’t be managing a team but collaborating with peers. Sequoia is an innovative and demanding environment where, refreshingly, people have just as high expectations of themselves as they have for others.
Logistics: We believe in the value of bumping elbows with the team and the customers on an hourly basis so this is not a position that works well for telecommuting. We are located at Sand Hill Rd and Hwy 280 which is 30 minutes on 280 from the southern parts San Francisco like Glen Park, South Beach, Sunset, etc. While we are engaged with Pivotal there will be some work onsite at their office in San Francisco.
Sequoia provides great comp and benefits, lunch every day, and workout facilities onsite.
