Front-End/UI Engineer

at Zivity in San Francisco, CA   —   Apr 17, 2014   |  
Overview
We are a revolutionary artist/fan interaction and monetization platform led by a team of internet leaders from PayPal and LinkExchange. We are backed by Founders Fund and Blue Run Ventures, the same investors that funded PayPal, Slide and many other web success stories. If you are ready to change the way consumers interact on the web and can handle the ensuing chaos and fun, then you just might enjoy working with us.

Our engineers turn good ideas into great prototypes and evolve those interface prototypes into addictive online experiences. Interface development for us is where the rubber meets the road: where testing, design, development, and content collide. We’re seeking one additional developer who knows the web inside and out to help us become a global multimedia publishing brand that provides fans with top quality tools to support and interact with the artists they love and provides artists with a superior means to access, interact with and grow their fan-bases.
