Findery is seeking an early team member to help with our zeroes and
ones – our RESTful API, our databases, our search, and more. You’ll be
working to build a scalable site focused on social media, relationships
and geo. You’ll work with front-end developers, both web and mobile, to
get them the data they need (and fast!); with the ops team to set,
measure and implement performance goals; and with our product team to
implement awesome features in the smartest possible way.
About
Findery
We’re a small team based in an awesome
office in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood and want to meet creative
people eager to help others share the places that matter to them.
Founded by Caterina Fake, chairman of
Etsy and co-founder of Flickr and Hunch, Findery lets people create, share, and
discover notes about the places around them. We want to build something that
millions of people will use and love. We want people to put our
company name on their license plates
; to make cakes
with our logo on them
; and to meet on Findery, fall in love,
and live happily ever after. We’ve built something like this before, and it was
one of the most fulfilling experiences of our lives. We’re doing it again.
Who
we’re looking for
We’re looking for people who have a
reputation for building cool things, a knack for learning and reaching just
outside their comfort zone, and a passion for creating a virtual space that
will foster real-world experiences. Finally, we’re hoping to hire people with
the confidence to voice opinions and offer help, but have the humility to
welcome opinions and ask for help.
Plus, you oughta be fun to be around.

Preferred Skills:

• You have 3+ years of experience writing expert object-oriented code.
(We’re a Ruby on Rails shop, so Rails experience is a plus.)
• You have similar experience working with relational databases and can read raw SQL. (We use MySQL and Redis.)
• You have experience with Apache or Nginx and know your way around the Unix command line.
• You can make things hum, knowing when to sweat milliseconds and when not to. You have experience with caching.
• You’re eager to try out ideas and push code every day–we iterate rapidly here and deploy continuously.
• You know that simple, sustainable systems win and that adding a new
feature sometimes means refactoring old code. You code fast today, but
are always laying groundwork so the whole team can code fast tomorrow.
• You love the product and its features, and you also enjoy building
tools to monitor and improve the application architecture. (devops ftw!)
• You can work with a big code base with other developers (we use Git)
and communicate that work with both technical and non-technical folks.

To apply: Please send an email to jobs@findery.com telling us about yourself and what you love to work on. Share all the stuff that you feel help describe who you are and what you’ve done (GitHub, blog, Twitter, Flickr, LinkedIn etc.) Attach your resume as a PDF.

Location: San Francisco, CA

URL: http://www.heroku.com

The Heroku Web Apps team is dedicated to beautiful, usable, and valuable web apps. We’re highly collaborative, make decisions in minutes, and ship features in hours. We believe in getting customer validation early, verifying with real data, but also running with our gut. The small team includes UI/UX design and product management, but everyone on the team is responsible for the success of our products, including that we’re building the right thing in the first place, and that it’s polished and beautiful when it’s done.
We’re seeking a developer that can own the entire stack of a Ruby on Rails app, including performance tuning, ongoing operations, and maintenance. The ideal profile combines deep experience in full-stack web development with a strong computer science background. You must be able to demonstrate prior experience on web sites you’re proud to show off for their polished UI and optimized backends.
You should be passionate about:
  • Current Rails/jQuery best practices
  • User experience and goal-directed design
  • Style, presentation, and design
You should be very strong on all of the following:
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Performance optimization, SQL tuning, caching strategies
  • Ability to own projects end-to-end
Bonus skills:
  • HTML/CSS – not a web designer, but pretty good at implementing markup
  • Javascript – including jQuery and cross-browser compatibility
  • HTML5 fanciness (e.g. websockets, canvas)
  • Test Driven Development (TDD)
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS e.g. S3, EC2)
  • Having founded your own startup
Attach a resume, but also include something about yourself in your message. Tell us why you love the product, why you want to be in a startup, why you want the job, and why you’re qualified. Use the resume to back yourself up.
A link to your Github profile and URLs to recent projects should be included.
This position does require that you live in, or be willing to relocate to, San Francisco and that you’re already legally able to work in the US – H1B quotas don’t open up again until April. If you’re Canadian or Australian with a 4 year degree, we might be able to do something.
