We (Livestream's product team) are building the next generation live event coverage and social network platform over web and mobile. Our team launched the New Livestream in beta last month - check it out at at http://new.livestream.com. We are looking for new team members to help us build and launch this new product in 2012. The stack is: Redis, Node.js, Ruby on Rails Web Site (built on top of REST APIs), Finagle on Scala for notification and other advanced services, Objective-C iOS apps.
We've recently made a foray into the SCALA landscape with some of our back-end services. We've been enjoying the power and flexibility it gives us as a programming language. As our lead developer on that project, you'd be in charge of growing that codebase and architecting it into a significant part of the stack, all the while being able to make independent decisions.
As the engineering team in NYC grows, you'll be able to help further construct a great engineering environment. We believe in using up-to-date tools and practices to remove as much friction as possible and stay flexible and lean.
We are NYC based with more than 50 staff members here, including the product and engineering leadership team. Livestream is based in 111 8th Avenue (on the L - 8th avenue) but there's a good chance that the engineering and product team will move to an awesome new office in Williamsburg in early 2012.
