Location: New York, NY (with relocation)
GroupMe needs world class web application engineers to help change the way the world communicates.
As a part of the Skype division at Microsoft, our goal is to be the daily communications provider for *billions* of people.
At GroupMe you will play a direct role in building applications that have truly global reach. Even though we are part of a huge company we operate like an independent startup. We have a huge amount of autonomy but can tap into the vast resources of Skype and Microsoft.
Our development process is “agile” which means week long iterations, stories, points, etc. We stress pair programming and are all strong generalists. We have engineers, not “front-end” or “back-end” people.
You will be responsible for helping building web applications and services to support GroupMe’s core group messaging product and other (top secret) communications and commerce applications.
Our office is near Union Square in the heart of New York City. We will
relocate you if you don’t live in the New York / New Jersey area.
We have a fun, relaxed, and friendly work environment along with awesome office perks (ping pong, pinball)
