Posterous.com is the easiest way to post text, photos, video, music and files of all kinds online using email. Our goal is to publish the world's information and capture a market of over 1.4 billion email users worldwide. We're looking for a great hacker to join the Posterous team as a first founding engineer. We launched in late June and we're adding thousands of new users at a very rapid clip. It's time to take that growth to the next level by building a team of only the best.
We're a Y Combinator company (Summer 2008), and we've just closed a seed funding round from an incredible slate of top angel investors who have built billions in value founding tech firms in email, video, and collaboration. We're opening an office in SOMA, San Francisco in December 2008. This is a rare opportunity to build a pre-series A startup from the ground floor as the critical first team member.
We're looking to hire immediately. Competitive salary and considerable equity compensation along with full health insurance benefits.
To apply, please email email@example.com with a resume, cover letter, and the address of your posterous site (go to http://posterous.com and use it) with something cool/interesting about yourself posted there. Be sure to include sample URL's of any work you may have done.
