The Ideal Fit
We're scouting founding team members that are passionate about disrupting the status quo, and are high-grade engineers and doers. We look for those that want join a very early stage team with a founder-level equity position. As we develop the cutting edge tech, we look for engineers that can wear multiple hats, learn and pick up new technologies quickly.
We love talking to engineers and hackers who have backgrounds in the following:
• Infrastructure: Worked on scalable infrastructure solutions like caching, queuing, automated deployment, and parallel processing technologies.
• Data Mining & Machine Learning: Worked with highly messy unstructured datasets. Also worked on data mining and/or information retrieval, using MapReduce (e.g. Hadoop), and Graph databases (e.g. Neo4j) to deliver recommendations and predictive analytics
Comfortable in multiple languages, frameworks, APIs, and environments
Passion -- coupled with neurosis -- for security, and a practical and balanced approach to security issues
Fanatical (or aspiring) contributor to the open-source community
