[JOB] Appboy - Ruby developer fulltime job opportunity in NYC

From: Jonathan H.
Sent on: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 11:42 AM
Appboy is developing a mobile SDK that solves key mobile application marketplace problems and helps users and mobile app developers connect and benefit from each other. With an ambitious vision to combine analytics, social sharing, recommendations, developer outreach, customer relationship management, and more, the Appboy SDK is positioned to become an integral tool for mobile application developers to expand their reach and find success. The past three months we've grown to six full time employees and are nearing our planned launch. We're seeing an incredible amount of interest from developers and investors and are very excited to see where the next few months lead us.

Appboy is facing a diverse set of hard and exciting technology problems -- we're in the thick of today's hot technologies, we're tackling challenges in the social and mobile space, data analytics, recommendation engines, systems/scaling and offer the freedom, flexibility and excitement that only an early stage startup can provide. Our SDK's direct customers are other software developers, but through their apps, we gain the combined user base of every app we integrate into. As such, we're face to face with the exciting challenge of developing systems to gracefully handle explosive growth.

We're looking for a backend developer to help us build out a highly scalable, dynamic backend for the SDK as well as our analytics and developer outreach platforms. In addition to software engineering, candidates should have a firm grasp of computer science concepts.

New employees have the opportunity to receive salary and equity as part of their compensation. We're located in New York City. Benefits include medical, free lunch, a relaxed, small team environment, and more.

Recommended Qualifications:

  • Computer Science degree or equivalent experience
  • Experience with functional languages and MVC such as Ruby on Rails or Python/Django
  • Understanding of algorithms, data structures, and design


  • Experience handling rapid user growth
  • Experience building and designing large scale applications
  • Familiarity with mongoDB
  • Strong experience with Ruby on Rails
  • Knowledgeable with HTML, CSS, and Javascript libraries such as jQuery and Backbone.js

Please contact [address removed] if you're interested in applying for this job. All requests will be reviewed and responded to within 24 hours.
