If you’re an experienced professional developer, you’re in high demand and finding a job shouldn’t be hard. But maybe you want more:
  • Work on a small agile team 
  • Have influence on the product requirements 
  • Develop a feature and deploy it the same day 
  • Help out theaters, musicians and comedians by building their audience 
  • Work with us to get millions of people to go out more, experience their community and enjoy life 
  • And then get home at a reasonable time to hangout with your family and friends.
One of the perks of working of working at Goldstar is you get to take your friends and family to some awesome events. What we don’t have is a ping pong table, XBox or masseuse. Those things are great and we want you to get home early enough to enjoy them there.
Goldstar’s not a start-up, but we’re still entrepreneurial. We’re an established leader, but still scrappy and innovating. We’re profitable, not waiting to hit some mythical milestone to get another round of funding. And eighty employees makes us not too big and not too small and still growing.
