Originate is looking for several Sr. Scala engineers for our NYC office. We just moved into a new penthouse office and we’ve got some empty seats to fill with Scala and software engineering awesomeness!
Originate is a unique Venture firm. We operate very similar to a VC in terms of deal flow, investment selection, etc, but instead of investing cash, we build software. Working at Originate gives people the opportunity to have ownership in many startups (20% of the equity that Originate takes in a venture is shared by everyone working on the project) and we also help employees build their own company through our EIR program.
We have offices in San Francisco, NYC, LA, Vegas, Sunnyvale, Beijing, and Stockholm. Originate is over 100 entrepreneurial minded software engineers, designers, product specialist and business people and our growth is only limited by the number of incredible people we can add to the crew. We are an engineering company at the core with tech stacks that are 50% Web (Scala and RoR) and 50% Mobile (iOS, and Android).
If you want to take your Scala skills to the next level or take your Java skills to the Scala level, we’d love to meet you!
2-10 years experience as an elite level software engineer with recent experience in Scala, Play, Akka, or Lift
Previous background should include heavy OO development using Java, J2EE, Spring, Maven, Hibernate, and maybe some C# or C++.
In a room full of engineers, you’ve always been the best, and probably the fastest (yes, even if you were at Google).
BS or MS in CS, Computer Engineering, EE, or Math is strongly preferred.
Salary + innovation equity (20% of equity and cash upside from every project we do is split with the engineers who made it happen)
