Close! While GitHub is used by sophisticated technologists comfortable with git (niche), our solution is intended for the masses - the 50 million small and medium businesses with marketing brochure sites and 170 million bloggers.

Front-end dev shops and designers like us because (i) they often don't use version control and (ii) if they do, once they turn a site over to the client, most likely the client does not. We also offer reseller agreements for the dev shops.

End website owners, freaked out by all things technology, like us for the peace-of-mind that they now have regarding their website. Granted, we are just one solution of a suite that is needed for ultimate protection, but a great first step.

Hosting providers like that customers can now remediate issues like WP hacks or malware insertions, and in an increasingly commoditized industry, have a point of differentiation. And web service providers enjoy having an additional offering that can generate revenue.

Any website owner - using ftp/sftp, WP, or MySQL, can back up and monitor their site simply by giving us the credentials to their server. GitHub was not intended to do this and is a different use case.

This, of course, leads us to an interesting place: potential acquirers. Would a GitHub, Dropbox, Carbonite, Mozy, Symantec, or McAfee find us interesting? A bolt-on offering? A cross-sell? Perhaps. But that is the future and what makes this next stage so much fun : )

I agree, I was so blinded by the by the ad it took me about 30 seconds to get to: "Isn't that what github does?!"

Now *that* -- ladies and gentleman -- is a fantastic job posting!  Wow.

Greetings Rubyists,
Are you interested in taking a chance? Are you tired of the safety of your corporate position or free-lance development?  Is there a feeling deep down inside that you can build a lasting product, impact every aspect of the technology stack, and love the experience?  Do you dream of founding your own startup one day?   

***Email: [address removed] if you are interested***

We're looking for one person to join our team.  And this person will be showered with compensation (on par with NYC/SF:: up to $130k DOE), equity (equivalent of a technology co-founder:: up to 6% DOE), and a benefits package that would make most HR managers at Fortune 500s cringe.  In return, we want a team player with a sense of urgency, attention to detail, strong written and verbal communication skills, and a strong tie to the products he or she builds.  It would be fantastic if you've built scalable web applications and know what EC2, S3, and RDS are. 

About Us
We've won a handful of startup competition awards, which doesn't mean much, but it isn't a bad sign. TechCrunch Disrupt, VentureAtlanta, ATDC/TAG CapVenture, and the MIT Enterprise Forum's Run It By the Pros.  We've raised almost $2M in capital from some of the top investors on the planet, which again, doesn't necessarily mean much, other than that you can be assured you will be paid.  We've also grown to close to 20,000 users and have close to 40 instances on Amazon powering our back-end.  Oh, and we have partnerships with some of the biggest companies in our space: CloudFlare (currently valued at >1Billion), Parallels (predicted to IPO this year), Namecheap (top rated domain name registrar in the world by LifeHacker), and I could go on and on.  We're a top 40 Innovative Company in Georgia, have garnered attention from USA Today and Inc Magazine, and really really don't want to leave Atlanta.  The founding team of CodeGuard has launched and exited several companies, and sees this as no different.


Lead Developer Posting

CodeGuard-ians are an elite, close-knit A-Team of enthusiastic developers, designers and business-folk. We’re working on one of the easiest-sounding (backups are simple, right?) hard problems on the internet today. There are hundreds of millions of websites on the internet today that have no protection from malware, development mistakes, hacking and server failures, and we want to put a stop to that.

You'll be helping us build new and innovative solutions to extremely difficult engineering challenges in a collaborative and fast paced environment. One day you could be working on sharding tables in our MySQL database to reduce query times, while the next could be building a new, user-facing feature in our Rails app. Or, you could be elbow deep in Ruby trying to shave a few seconds off of the millions of file comparisons we do every day.

These problems can be tough, but you’ll never face them alone. As a small engineering team, we like to make sure everyone is involved in the decision-making process. But, because the team is small, this also means that everyone has the freedom to implement solutions in the way they see fit, and must be able to work well independently with little or no supervision. We work fast, iterate even faster, and ship code several times a day; so your hard work will be impacting real users within hours of completion.
