Nextdoor.com is a new venture-backed startup based in downtown San Francisco. We're building a new service in the local space, have launched our alpha product, and are ramping up towards a national launch. Funded by Benchmark Capital and Shasta Ventures, our founding team consists of experienced technology executives with a combined 30+ years experience at pioneering companies including Epinions, Shopping.com, Excite@Home, Yahoo!, Microsoft, and Google.
We're looking for fearless engineers who love working on multiple challenges simultaneously. Whether it's server-side Python web application code, front-end jQuery and CSS/HTML UI development, or data crunching and analysis in SQL, every day brings a new set of interesting problems to solve and technologies to build. Our product is ready to make the transition from prototype to a web-scale production application. We're looking for folks who thrive at the edge of chaos, treat their teammates like family, and love to get stuff done!
This is a unique opportunity to join a small, experienced team of fewer than 10 people and take on a significant role in the company's development.
All levels of experience welcome to apply!
