About the position:
As the company’s second full-time developer, you will work with the other developer to drive the site forward in every direction imaginable. You will work the entire stack, from HTML to Controllers to some basic server administration. Depending on your qualifications, you will also work on another Ruby, non-Rails application that represents the future of social relationships.
Together, we’ll work on everything from the content engine of the site, to new public-facing features like our wildly popular photo polls, to addressing architectural issues like our activity object graph, to the mechanics powering core features like posting, commenting, and complimenting. While this position does not require design experience per se, it does require an eye and attention to detail to be able to take a mockup from a designer and turn it into a functioning page quickly and precisely. This position requires outstanding skills in deconstructing problems, as you will be directly responsible for the entire life cycle of features and user stories. We’re a small, laser-focused team, and you would be our second full-time developmental hire, so some Agile, Scrum and XP experience is highly valued.
The ideal candidate has experience:
  • Programming and deploying Ruby on Rails applications
  • Crafting modern public-facing experiences and interfaces in HTML, CSS and Javascript
  • Working the entire software development lifecycle from conception to reflection
  • Working as a team of one and in a small team
StyledOn offers:
StyledOn is a well-funded startup backed by one of the largest VC firms in the world. We offer a competitive salary, benefits, bonuses, creative and technical freedom, a loose and fun culture, and access to fashion industry and industry events no other tech company can provide.

To apply: Please email sfaulks (at) styledon (dot) com or call (212) 966-2740 from 10AM to 7PM. We’ll have a quick chat and then set up a time for a technical interview. Please don’t hesitate, we are looking to hire within the next 2 weeks!
