Are you a creative end-to-end web developer with a passion for problem solving in NYC?
Replace me at OpenSky! OpenSky is a well funded celebrity-curated daily deals startup based in Manhattan, NYC. I am moving on from the position I’ve had for the last few months as a marketing and curator-facing developer and into a product design role, and we need someone to replace me.
This is a great position for a Hacker / Designer / Gets Things Done kind of person, with interest in working for a hot startup and experience with marketing-type folks. No CS degree required here. You should know how to write code, and know enough design to make sure things look right the first time.
The pay is competitive, the team is fun and we are currently on a hockey-stick trajectory upwards. Its a good time to be at OpenSky.
