Mint is a product development studio. We make products people want and collaborate with great companies. We're looking for a developer to join the team and help in doing so. Currently we are 38 people total, with a tech team of 13. We're split across two offices in New York and London, but work as one team. (Yes, we do meet up at least once a year)
We love building great software and are constantly reevaluating and improving our process. All voices in the company can contribute to this conversation. We've been working with Rails for years and it is still our go-to tool for many projects, but we are also strong believers in using the best tool for the job. Recent projects have used the following: Rails, Sinatra, AngularJS, redis, django, PostgreSQL, MySQL, mongoDB, JS, CoffeeScript, d3, Chef, Sidekiq, nginx, Ubuntu, git and more. We're looking for great developers, either front-end or back-end (or both), who have a burning desire to play with the latest technologies and get to use them in production. You might expect to see a long list of 'required' skills here, but we believe that a desire to keep learning is more important than the specific skills you have right now. Hopefully you have experience with some toolset, we're just not fussy which one. We're more interested in what you've produced than the tools you used to produce it.
Our working principle is to learn through making. Working with us, you could be creating a major TV-show driven site one week, rapidly shipping one of our own startup ideas the next and then working on a 4 Days 2 Launch hack the next. The software game moves fast and a great developer also never stops learning. We encourage this through internal tech talks, a great conference policy as well as our own events. We prefer all work to be collaborative and use pull requests liberally.
If this sounds interesting drop me a line to introduce yourself and explain why. If you'd like to speak in person, I'll be at nyc.rb next week.
