[JOB] Lead developer at Material Wrld

From: Peter B.

Hi All,

Just came across an interesting position for a node developer. No business relationship - just want to share node jobs with the node community so more of us can actually get paid to hack using js! As usual, I'm putting the [JOB] in the subject line so please set your mail filters to zap this if it's offensive/annoying/whatever.

Happy Holidays!


Lead Developer – Funded eCommerce Startup

Job Description

Material Wrld, a venture-funded fashion eCommerce startup, makes it fun and easy to discover, shop, and sell from stylish personal closets. We help sellers monetize their closets and buyers access designer fashions for a great deal. And yes, we support closet voyeurism with our global community of tastemakers, fashion insiders, creative, and everyday stylish individuals.

We launched a beautiful beta site in Fall 2012 and have been featured in Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Fox News and The Huffington Post as "Fashion's New eBay." Founded by Jie and Rie, two friends and classmates from Harvard Business School with eCommerce experience from Coach, Ralph Lauren, and J. Crew, we’re disrupting the fashion resale industry on a global scale. Plus, we’re backed by a great group of investors from New York and Asia.

We’re looking for a lead developer who loves building awesome software and wants to create and own a new platform, combining the social discovery elements of Pinterest with the marketplace functionality of eBay. This is a great opportunity for high impact work and ownership in a fast-paced startup environment. As the first technical hire, you'll be calling all the technology shots and working with the founders to turn their vision into a working product.

Skills & Requirements

  • Take ownership of site build and drive features and experiences that will revolutionize the way people shop and sell fashion.
  • Strong knowledge of at least one back-end web technology, best practices, and methodologies.
  • Experience with eCommerce and social share features.
  • Experience with version control (e.g. Git).
  • Excellent communication skills and a great attitude.

Back-end development of Material Wrld has been done so far with Node.js, MySQL, Coffeescript, Heroku hosting, Amazon S3, GitHub, and Google Analytics.

If you're a great developer and these technologies are not in your stack, feel free to apply. We're open to anyone who's talented and hungry.


About Material Wrld

Material Wrld is a curated online fashion-loving community for shoppable closets.

We’re disrupting the fashion resale industry on a global scale by creating the most personalized and fun experience for fashion enthusiasts to shop and sell online.

We offer competitive salary and equity, health benefits, and an excellent culture for creative learning.

We just moved into a spacious new office in the heart of Fashion District with access to a full professional photo studio next door. This means occasional model sightings.

While we hustle hard, we also like to have fun. We love to take dance breaks with our disco ball to get our creative juices flowing.

If you're interested, please email Jie Zheng directly - [address removed]
