Profitable Social Gaming Developer in SF seeking talent

From: user 1.

Good afternoon, everyone:


I wanted to reach out to the list regarding a few openings I have with a startup company in the Social Gaming space that’s looking to double their headcount over the next few months.  They were founded in 2007, are currently at 10 employees, located in SF (approximately 15-20 minute walk from CalTrain), and they’re significantly profitable.


Although their proprietary social games creation platform is what put them on the map, right now they’re focused on the development of games on the Facebook platform.  They’ve released 2 so far (with over a million users total), and currently have a few more in the hopper.  They’ve also got numerous acquisition offers on the table from some of the biggest players in the Social Gaming space, but are solely focused on building their core business on their own.  With that said, right now would be a GREAT time to join, as you can get in at virtually the ground floor and really help drive the direction of the company.


As a potential employee with this company, your boss would be the Founder, who is VERY technical (PhD CS from top 10 Engineering school), and still works in a hands-on capacity while running the ship at the same time.  I’m working very closely with him on these openings, so rest assured that I’m not just another recruiter “collecting resumes,” your resume will be seen by the right people, and you’ll receive very timely feedback as well.


Technology stack-wise, they’re using Flash/Actionscript on the front-end, PHP on the back-end, and MySQL database servers.  If you don’t have experience with one or more of these technologies it’s okay; you’d just have to be interested in getting into the Social Gaming space.  Experience-wise, they’re looking for candidates ranging from the Jr.-level all the way up to Director-level.  Salary range on these roles are open.  They make very competitive offers, and want to make sure that everyone is happy.


Hopefully I’ve intrigued anyone enough to want to follow up on this opportunity.  If so, please feel free to respond to me directly (don’t be that guy/gal that responds to the whole list J), and I’ll answer any questions that you may have.


Thanks, everyone!
