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
