Yapp is searching for its 3rd engineer, a key member of the founding team. If you are passionate about your craft and want a chance to influence the technology, process, product, and culture of an exciting early stage company, read on!
Yapp is democratizing mobile technology so that every person on the planet can create his or her own mobile app. Yes, that’s a big vision – and we are just at the beginning. We launched our first product in private beta at the beginning of April and have received a phenomenal reception from users, media, and investors. Read about it here: http://press.yapp.us
While we make it look easy for regular folks to make an app, Yapp is powered by some cutting-edge technology and some forward thinking about working together.
Some of the tools we're using include: Rails, Ember.js, Sproutcore, PhoneGap, iOS SDK, Node.js, Heroku & AWS, Postgres, and Redis
Open source is an important part of our tech culture and we have commits in Rails and Sproutcore, and are particularly engaged in the development of Ember.js and its ecosystem
We are students of agile and lean software development. We use kanban and do pair programming and TDD where appropriate.
We develop on master and ship almost every day.
We place a premium on honesty and integrity amongst ourselves, and our partners and customers; collaborate often but have meetings infrequently.
For the long version of how we think about technology teams, you can check out a talk Luke gave at Gotham Ruby Conference: http://bit.ly/HESGxy
A product-oriented engineer who enjoys working on all parts of the stack
Someone with experience in some of the tools we are using and interest in the others
Someone driven by the goal of creating world-class user experiences
A person who thrives in an early start up environment
You will get incredible experience writing code for mobile, tablet and desktop, in multiple languages, and get to work on both cutting edge UX and interesting back-end challenges.
We are a scrappy, early stage company. We work in a basement (ok, it’s a really nice basement). We don’t have the perks other startups are promising (that’s right, no kegerator or masseuse)
Instead, we invest in our people, our culture, and our users
We work tirelessly not because someone tells us to, but because we love what we do
We spend time with our families, pursuing our passions, and contributing to our communities
We practice total transparency, collaboration, and doing whatever it takes
We offer a competitive salary, health insurance, and generous equity
