What’s Interviewstreet?
Our goal is to build an engaging platform where as many programmers in the world hang out to solve interesting CS real-world problems across different domains and have fun. We’re just getting started with some really good algorithmic challenges.
We’re hiring a Product Hacker to focus on two important metrics –  Engagement (average time spent and interaction) and Retention (churn factor)We listen to our users a lot and been doing a bunch of experiments on our site – categorizing problems into different levels, loginless view to solve problems, introducing AI games (summergames.interviewstreet.com) which has made a ton of users happy. There are thousands of programmers every day solving challenges and having fun. 
Imagine if you grew this number by 10x or say, 100x? We’ve a very big aim – building a  Facebook for programmers, building a platform to bring together all hackers to our site. It’s probably like saying all the gold mines of the world is at one place. 
If you’re looking to join a young and an exciting team backed by YC (ycombinator) at Mountainview, hop in. 
What’re we looking for?
  • You have coded *extensively* in the past (or continue to) and have built stuff on the web
  • You understand the way programmers think and know what they enjoy and able to translate ideas into how it should reflect on the website
  • Explicit mention of some of the earlier products you’ve worked on – what changes you made and how they affected the business value
  • You are very numbers obsessed and the first thing you wake up to is an analytics dashboard.
  • You are able to code up little things/changes you want on the site and not disturb the developers for quick changes.

Want to work for a
hot, new start-up in the social gaming space? We are combining shopping +
gaming in a whole new way (think Swoopo + Gilt Groupe). Seeking a brilliant hacker
with start-up experience to lead the ToVieFor engineering team.
The Deets
We are in New York
City.  We just won the NYU Stern Business Plan Competition (one of the
most competitive in the country). The product is built – we are iterating now. We
are closing our first round of Angel financing. We are young, fun girls who
left the finance world to plot our own course in the fashion world….
Check us out in the New
York Times
(nyti.ms/NYTtoviefor) and NPR
(bit.ly/aeYFLo).
Our
ideal Chief Hacker…
  • Previous start-up experience – we would love it if you
    have experience at a fashion / retail / or eCommerce start-up, however,
    this is not a deal breaker
  • Our site is written in PHP with a MySQL database, and
    we are using a WordPress CMS.  So,
    we need someone with advanced LAMP capabilities / experience, including:
    XHTML, CSS3, HTML5, and AJAX
  • Experience working with third-party APIs including the
    Facebook platform
  • Photoshop / Illustrator capabilities are helpful as
    well, though we already have a graphic designer who does amazing UI /
    design work
  • Able to build and lead a small, bad-ass
    engineering team BUT also not afraid to get your hands dirty and do a
    significant amount of coding yourself
  • Plan and manage a cloud infrastructure that can scale
    to billions of hits
  • We’re looking for someone with real world programming
    experience.  We don’t care if that’s
    working for a Fortune 500 company or programming out of your parent’s
    basement while eating Doritos and playing World of Warcraft
And most importantly: we need someone
who believes in the core product, has a crazy work ethic, and loves the
start-up world.
We are a small and nimble team, you
will be working very frequently with the two co-founders. We are two x-Wall
Street girls who definitely do NOT fit the stereotype. We want to find someone
just as fun, creative, and down to earth as we are 🙂
Note: We’re in NYC. For our lead
developer, we need someone who is local. However, we are open to supporting
relocation for very strong candidates.
Salary, Equity, Benefits
Competitive with other funded
start-ups. Salary and equity are inversely proportional. To be discussed.

To apply: Please forward your resume and cover letter to melanie@toviefor.com
