Jumo, a web start-up with an ambitious global mission, is currently hiring front-end developers. Jumo was founded by Chris Hughes, co-founder of facebook.com and former coordinator of online organizing for the Obama campaign. We're currently looking for hard-working developers who value intellectual challenge, appreciate the importance of online networking technology, and, most importantly, want to change the world. Our small and dynamic team works out of a beautiful and sunny SoHo loft in New York City.
Ability to work independently and think creatively about technical solutions to human problems. You will not be considered a technologist executing specs handed to you.
Ability to grasp the big picture and have big ideas with the courage to voice them
A drive to develop new skills
A solid understanding of web architecture, object-oriented software, and design patterns
An understanding of good UI design. While you don't need to be a visual designer, you should be able to put together a compelling prototype without a designer holding your hand.
Comfortable working in a Linux environment. Have you grepped anything lately?
The competence and confidence to own your own work. Early in the project you will be the sole front-end developer.
A passion for building great software coupled with an enthusiasm for engaging in rapid prototyping and fast-paced development
In-depth understanding of scalability and the challenges that fast-growing web applications experience
B.S., M.S., or Ph.D. in computer science or equivalent preferred
