Thrillist, and JackThreads, and our newest family member, Thrillist Rewards are scaling rapidly and building a team of hardcore programmers to match our lofty ambitions. We’re looking for programmers of all levels, preferably with experience using PHP and MySQL. If you’re comfortable with jQuery, that is even better. Our systems’ “cores” are Drupal 6 and CakePHP, so experience with those is a definite plus. Other technologies we work with are MongoDB, Solr, PostgreSQL and Amazon Web Services. If you have Sys Admin chops, we definitely want to hear about it.
On a daily basis you could be working on projects big and small – handling upgrades to a massive email campaign and send reputation system or working on our mobile API (because after all, we also have to support the backend for our iPhone, iPad and Android apps.) This position requires both design and implementation work. We’ve got a bunch of cool applications in development, some large, some small.
We expect a ton out of our team, and because of that, we want to make sure you’re as happy as can be. We have a conference and book budget for continuing your education, team lunches, dual monitors and brand new iMacs (want a PC? Let us know and we can make it happen.) We make sure to keep our coffee machines brewing all day and have situated Nerf weaponry around our offices for the impromptu dart war (did we mention the Nerf budget?). Don’t forget the normal benefits, too: competitive salary, health insurance, sick days, vacation days and as you spend more time with our team, flexible work hours and work place. Naturally working at Thrillist means you get access to some pretty cool Thrillist events and occasional product (booze) presentations right in our office.
