'Full-Stack' Web Developer opening at Jana, a well-funded Boston-based startup

Want to be part of building a cutting-edge platform to reach the biggest network of people in the world?

Jana, a Boston based start up, is changing century old industries in the developing world through cutting edge mobile technology. We help big players (like the World Bank, The Economist, Unilever) get feedback from hard to reach groups in days instead of months and test innovative products with the push of a button. We have a powerful mobile rewards platform to send free airtime minutes to more than 2.1 billion people around the world. We're earning revenue in 50 countries and have raised almost $10M from premier VC investors.

Our teams bursts with talent from MIT, Harvard, Stanford and Google but we're pretty relaxed, except during weekly Settlers of Catan battles in the office, ice-cream runs on Wednesdays or beer runs every Friday.

In short, we're having fun disrupting century old industries.

Right now, we're looking for full-stack web developers. So, if you think you could have the same kind of fun come talk to us!

Early stage means you'll have major influence
We love Open Source (CouchDB, Flask, and more)
Roots from the MIT Media Lab
Global Impact (Asia, Africa, Latin America)
We gather and analyze massive amounts of data

Good candidates have:

Experience across the entire open source stack
UI/UX implementation, web design
Experience with web frameworks
Experience with Python - or very strong in at least two other web-related languages
3+ years of software development
Demonstrable analytic ability
Passion for web software development
Ability to both learn from and teach other engineers


We are building a new style of marketing and advertising company focusing on underserved, understudied communities in high-growth markets. We are actively recruiting individuals who share our passion for making a lasting, positive global impact while growing a thriving, exciting business.
