Temboo is a small, solid start-up full of smart people who love to learn from each other, and are motivated by a larger sense of a purpose. Our mission is to impact and improve the ways technology is created and put to use: we're changing the way code gets written, and in doing so, removing barriers to making. By building tools that work with the cloud, we make it possible for developers to focus on the 'what' and 'why' of app invention while we take care of the 'how.' They make playing with APIs simple, and implementing otherwise time-consuming and technically difficult processes (like handling authentication) nearly automagical. The result: a new wave of makers and apps that can call upon the clouds and bring forth innovative and meaningful technology that will improve lives.
We're based in New York City. Our team is wickedly smart, passionate about what we do, and committed to making programming faster, easier, and more fun. It's an audacious goal and we'll achieve it--with your help.
We're looking for a creative, talented Web Developer to help us push the envelope of interface design and implement elegant, intuitive web applications. Your specific technical skill-set is less important to us than your all-around intelligence, problem-solving ability, and eagerness for new challenges.
Our unique company culture promotes individual contribution, innovation, excellence, and the belief that work should also be fun. We offer competitive compensation, a casual office environment, and respect for individual contribution and autonomy. We're looking for people who have interests outside of work as well (please mention some of these in your cover letter if you like).
Does this sound like you? If so, there may be a place for you at Temboo.
