Principal Engineer

 

WHO YOU ARE

·         You get excited when you stumble across a challenging problem.

·         You're lightning-fast and can write a hack version of Twitter in a few weekends.

·         You love to tinker with different emerging technologies (and have projects you can brag about).

·         You're not afraid to argue for a better solution.

 

WHO WE ARE

We are a cool technology start-up that is backed by some of Silicon Valley’s top angel investors.  Founded in September 2009, SayHired has been helping companies reduce the pain of recruiting, and we’re doing that by solving an interesting problem related to voice technologies and building a next-generation platform for superior employer & candidate experiences. Find out more about us at www.SayHired.com

 

COOL PERKS OF WORKING HERE

You want to work for a start-up because of the cool perks that you can’t get at a large company, right?  Exactly -- that’s why we offer the following:

  • Quarterly vacations to Las Vegas or Lake Tahoe (your own personal trip).
  • Free iPad when you join the company.
  • Refrigerator stocked full of snacks, beer, and wine.
  • Monthly massage or spa voucher

 

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING

You will be one of the first and key team members with all of the benefits of making a significant impact on the product & technology direction of the company. You'll be building web and voice applications from architecture to launch; creating slick AJAX interfaces to present complex information and controls; implementing continuous deployment setup; fixing post-launch disasters, scaling up, introducing new features, and generally hacking your way to a better product. Expect to follow agile development principles and lean start-up methodology.

 

TO DO THIS WELL YOU'LL NEED

·         Experience designing, developing, and supporting web sites & apps in a start-up environment

·         Comfort (if not necessarily equal excitement) about dealing with both front- and back-end

·         Ability and passion about building from scratch fully-tested apps based on napkin design

·         Ideally, a proficiency in Python or Ruby

·         Preferably, a degree in CS

·         Be local to Bay area or intend to relocate here shortly

·         Must be currently authorized to work in the U.S.
