JOB: Seeking very experienced end-to-end Web Developers for radical new social startup!

A former member
Post #: 22
Hi! I was at last night's User Group meetup where I gave a short pitch for our new start-up, Whuffie. Just following up with the details of the position - feel free to contact me at stephanie at whuffie dot com.

Whuffie is an intelligent social utility that will radically transform the way people connect and interact. We've also developed an innovative new way to monetize social connections. We're currently in limited alpha (built by an ace freelance team) and we have some seed/angel funding and good investor interest.

Now we're recruiting the stellar core team to co-found the business. We want wickedly talented, insanely visionary and highly driven people who play well with others, like to solve complex product challenges and can get stuff done. We're committed to building a cutting-edge technology company as well as a paradigm-busting user experience. And we want to create a great place to work, with smart, nice and ambitious people who trust, like and respect each other.

We’re looking for highly qualified Web Developers who are deeply immersed in the web technologies and standards of the social web. The ideal candidates are: part-engineer and part product manager, very experienced doing both front-end and back-end coding, comfortable doing their own testing, and keen on building products that are highly viral.

• B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in Computer Science or equivalent.
• Extraordinary software development talent.
• Substantial experience developing web applications, and building and interacting with social networking systems (APIs, apps, etc.). Be able to show us some samples you’re proud of.
• Willingness and ability to work on projects and solve problems throughout the stack, from back-end analytics to front-end (CSS/JavaScript).
• Demonstrated record of self-organizing to deliver software on-time and within budget in high-pressure dynamic environments with rapid prototyping and development schedules.
• Proficiency with Ruby/RoR a plus (we’re currently built on RoR).
• Ability to brainstorm and prototype new concepts and approaches quickly.
• Strong verbal and written communication skills, and the ability to convey technical concepts into plain English. Good collaborator.
• Passion, creativity and energy. Bonus points for start-up experience, a sense of humor and the desire to make a difference in the world.
• Authorized to work in the U.S. without sponsorship.

Exceptional candidates will have:
• Experience with at least one of the following: search/discovery/recommendation systems (algorithms), social networks, data mining and analysis, applied machine learning or distributed systems.
• Experience with mobile applications and geo-location.
• Experience with casual gaming.

We’re looking for people who have strong points of view that are well-informed and who make important decisions quickly based on expertise and past experience. The ideal candidates will have the potential to grow into a technical or management leadership role over time. As this position is for someone to be part of the co-foundering team, compensation is a mix of salary and equity, with a preference towards the equity.
