Software Engineer

at Vistar Media in Philadelphia, PA   —   Jul 07, 2014   |  
Overview
We’re an early-stage startup. Our code base is tiny. We want you to come in and work with the technologies you want to work with. We want you to help mold the technical foundations on which our product is written.
Responsibilities
You must:
Be very proficient in at least one compiled, one interpreted language and one web framework
Have extensive experience with distributed systems
Have coded a non-trival system soup to nuts. CSS, persistence, deployment, et cetera
Understand Linux to a degree where you’d be comfortable admin’ing a fleet of boxes
Be able to design and implement a large, efficient codebase
Be able to ballpark the computational complexity of a snippet of code
Understand HTTP
Be able to decompose business requirements into a set of RESTful resources
Be opinionated about your tools. Love jQuery? Great. Hate jQuery? Great.
Have experience with the full stack. From the database to CSS.
Be able both identify and implement a practical test suite
It sure would be nice if you:
Have run a system on EC2
Know how to decompose an algorithm to map/combine/reduce phases
Cringe when people ask if you’re a “front end” or “back end” developer
Have worked with abstractions on top of the normal toolset like Coffeescript and less
Are interested in client-side MVC frameworks like backbone.js, batman.js, or knockout
Have experience coaxing functional requirements out of business requirements
Know right where to look when your friend has messed up their .htaccess
Experience
We’ll consider baking you a cake if you:
Have experience in the advertising industry
Write a practical test suite for your personal code and push it to a CI server
Like using tools like Git Flow to organize releases, features, and fixes
If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. If not, that’s okay. But, we do bake a pretty mean cake.
