Overview
Pixable is a recently funded MIT startup that just relocated to NYC (Manhattan). Pixable offers a collaborative photobook creation platform that allows you to create photobooks with all the photos and content you can see on Facebook (your photos, your friend's photos, photo comments, status updates, etc) and combine that with content on Picasa, Flickr or your hardrive. We later print it and send it to you. This is only the beginning. We have further products in the pipeline with proprietary technology.

We are currently looking for a lead developer with experience in at least Flex and LAMP to add to the Pixable Team.

The ideal developer will have experience with Flex, Linux, mySQL, PHP and Ajax. In addition, she/he may have notions of image handling, manipulation, and processing. We also use a web architecture on Amazon Web Services although its configuration is straight forward to learn if you understand and have notions of web architectures and linux.

We have built the foundation of our business and now we are trying to add new features and products, to create proprietary value around our platform technology.

We have received funding and after one year, we have a product already in the market (www.pixable.com). We actually make money.

Propose ideas, translate ideas into product specs (mock ups, designs, usability tests, etc) and product management (break product into individual tasks, prioritize, set milestones, and supervise and report progress), management of external contractors (graphic designers, back end developers, etc.), and SW coding.

Manage external contractors

Demonstrable two years experience in software or website development preferible in startup environments and in Flex/LAMP(we would like to see some kind of portfolio of things developed, even if they are not in Flex).
Ability to collaborate and work well in teams. Easy to get along with people. We spend a lot of time together, we eat together and we do things together outside work.

You are an athlete: Extremely hard working in exchange of big and fast upside
