Senior Web Developer

at RentJuice in San Francisco, CA   —   Jul 02, 2014   |  
RentJuice, the revolutionary new platform for 40 million housing rentals in the US, is seeking a full-time software engineer. Backed by top-tier investors who have founded or led successful online marketplaces, real estate companies, and venture capital funds, we launched our service privately in early 2009 and are now looking to grow our development team. If you've ever rented an apartment, you'll immediately understand and appreciate what we do. We are based in San Francisco, CA.

We hope you're:
-- A hacker. You're comfortable hopping up and down the stack, from configuring Apache to writing CSS. Your specialties are undoubtedly PHP and Javascript, though. Given a new problem to solve, you can code fast and think even faster. We're a LAMP shop that tends to use Prototype, and that sounds like home to you. You've worked with others on complex projects, so you know the importance of revision control (Git), and how to document and structure your work so that it's clean. Ideally, you've built a site that has scaled to millions of users, a team of engineers, and several servers.
-- Perfect for a startup. You are mission-oriented, and want to have a lot of impact. You don't need constant oversight, but you communicate often and openly anyway. Testing and rapid iteration are the only way to know if you're right, and you feel comfortable knowing that you're often wrong the first time. You like having several responsibilities, and you know how to prioritize.
-- A fit for our culture. We are collaborative, creative, hard-working, customer-focused, and frugal. Each of us can contribute if needed by another teammate, because mutual respect and dependency is part of the setup. Any one of us could pick up the phone and talk to a user or partner. We all believe we'll succeed individually, but only if we succeed as a company.
