Internet Software Engineer

at DYMPOL, Inc. in Cambridge, MA   —   Apr 05, 2014   |  
DYMPOL Summit '08Jay Ziskrout
Overview
Dympol gives consumers entertainment discounts on behalf of brands who underwrite the expense in exchange for taking the credit, and telling their story to a receptive audience. Our mission is to disrupt the $54 billion "branded entertainment" market by converting billions of existing digital entertainment transactions into unique and personal advertising opportunities. Our patent-pending "transactional-sponsorship" approach represents a new kind of ad inventory that can be applied to virtually any type of transaction, and is a viable successor to 'direct response' search advertising. Dympol is Adwords for entertainment sponsorships. Currently available via Dympol's proof-of-concept website (http://www.dympol.com) and AmazonMP3 Discount Toolbar (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/49129/); Dympol's imminent APIs will enable the company to scale by integrating the service across a network of web and mobile e-commerce and content-discovery channels. Although our initial roll-out ties in to the music space, subsequent verticals include apps, games, virtual goods, audio/e-books, and event tickets.

Our company has raised one round of seed financing, closed initial deals with customers and partners, and is on track to close a second round of financing soon. Now, we are looking for two key internet software engineers to help us move from prototype to our first commercial integrations.

We are deploying a product that has the possibility of revolutionize brand marketing. With increasing interest from partners, customers, the press and investors, we’re on the verge of breaking out and NOW is your chance to get in on the ground-floor of explosive opportunity!

If you are a rock star PHP/ZEND/JavaScript/MySQL developer, then we want to talk to you!

Location: Although this job is (initially) a work-from-home/telecommute situation, you should live in the greater New England area, within a few hours drive of Boston.

We’ve got a great product, great partners, consumer interest as well as significant positive press. We’re on the verge of breaking out and expect to need minimal VC investment to get to profitability. This is your chance to get in on the ground-floor of explosive opportunity!
Responsibilities
We’ve got a beta (v.9) product. Help us take our core application and suite of APIs (web and mobile) to the next level, by building a scalable, transactional, and easily integratable V1.0 platform. You will be responsible for any number of technical and functional areas including: JavaScript/Ajax/Web 2.0 integration, PHP/Rest Interface, MySQL scalability, staging/deployment/webmaster, pricing/bidding optimization algorithms.
Experience
Experience with several of the following: PHP, Zend Framework, MySQL, XAMP, JavaScript, jQuery/Ext-JS/Prototype.
Platform: Linux or Mac primarily. Possibly Windows, but not initially.
Familiarity with echonest, 7digital, and/or medianet APIs a major plus.
Education
A BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience.
Compensation
This is a deferred-cash plus equity position; part-time to full-time, with the potential to become a founding member of the team upon successful customer deployment.
