Hi All,

I enjoyed last night's meetup, though I wish there had been more of an opportunity to get to know some of you. In case you're interested in a new job opportunity, I'm hiring Python and Django developers at MapMyFITNESS.


To apply, please send your resume, examples of your work, and your ideas about our products.

We'd also love to see your profile on our website or any competitor's website, your blog, and your Twitter feed.

You're a professional software developer. You're a generalist. You know computer science regardless of whether you learned it academically, professionally, or by hacking on your own. You move up and down the stack effortlessly in order to make changes at the best point between the user interface and the bare metal. You explore the breadth of the system and the landscape of available technologies. At the same time, you maintain a laser focus on producing customer value. You crave feedback from your peers and your users. You continually form hypotheses and seek to validate or invalidate them in production by shipping small changes frequently. Your teamwork displays an appreciation for both the spirit and the letter of Agile process. You work hard, and you continually seek ways to work smarter. You gush with optimism without allowing blind spots to prevent you from seeing risks. You avoid the temptation to plagiarize this paragraph as your cover letter. You realize that nobody achieves these ideals, but you try yourself anyway.


We're a startup. Our intention is to change the world of fitness. Success is far from guaranteed, and the impact of your work can make the difference. We do as much as we can with as little as possible. We expect a lot of time and effort from you, and it impresses us even more when you find efficiencies.
