TheLadders: Software Engineer @ TheLadders

Posted by | May 31, 2012 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: New Tork, NY


We’re looking for a few good programmers to join our team
and help us achieve our mission of “the right person for the right job.”
Instead of giving you a list of buzzwords to describe the
role, we’ll tell you about a project we started recently:
A few months back, a small team of engineers and designers
at The Ladders got together to design a new product. We started off by
interviewing some of our customers to learn about their needs.  Using that
information, we held design studios and brainstorming sessions to flesh out
what the actual features and user experience would be like.
On the front-end, we decided to build a new Javascript-powered
rich UI using responsive design techniques. Many people are working on
responsive design for content-based sites, but few are doing it for
browser-based applications.
On the back-end, we designed an Event Driven Architecture
that makes use of Event Sourcing. Instead of updating a relational database
in-place when things change, we store a series of discrete application events.
We can then replay those events to create the state of the world at any point
in the past, right up to the present. (Yes, we’ve built a time machine!)
Does this sound like the sort of thing you’d like to do? If
it is, we’d like to hear from you.
In return for your passion and commitment to code quality,
you’ll enjoy an awesome work environment with perks like:
Unlimited vacation days!  Yes, unlimited!
Quarterly hackathons
A game room and a well-stocked kitchen
Exciting events including holiday parties,
picnics, talent shows
Company sponsored athletic teams
Competitive salary, bonus and stock options
Health/Dental/Vision Insurance, 401K
