Helping a friend find engineers for his startup:

Who are we?

A social network start-up looking for web and iPhone engineers. Several positions available for smart, creative folk who want to build something amazing, something beneficial for the day-to-day social networking user.

Who are you?

You love building things, you love creating things. You're an engineer first, so language choice shouldn't be much of an issue to you. You look at the social networking landscape and feel that beyond the buzz, there needs to be something more, something better, something that takes all this data and makes a difference in a person's life.

Maybe you've had experience building scalable web applications before and want to do it again. Or perhaps it's iPhone apps that hold your interest. Either way, be well-versed in the current technologies driving those spaces and know when to use them and when not to use them.

What do we want you to know?

This is by no means an exhaustive list. Just some things we are talking about using/doing:

- Python for the web application development but there is always room for Ruby, Haskell, Erlang.
- JavaScript: Know it, love it.
- RESTful architectures and web standards.
- Pyramid/Pylons, Rails, jQuery.
- MySQL, Redis and other NoSQL solutions.
- iOS development experience.
- Every single useful social networking API available today.
- Data mining skills will be handy.
