Full Time
We are looking for a self-motivated web developer to join our small, fun team. You should be a generalist, as we use several different technologies. You need to be passionate about your craft as you will need to take initiative to solve problems and learn/use new technologies. Since our team is small, you will have a chance to make an immediate impact.

You will:
- Help rebuild our resources and systems into services, which means building APIs. We're moving away from the older technologies, so you'll get a chance to help architect the next generation of our systems.
- Develop our mobile-optimized site on a new platform (were exploring Node.js).
- Work with our product managers to develop and tweak features for our sites.
- Refactor our codebase, which currently consists of VBScript, PHP, C#, Javascript, and Ruby in roughly that order.
- R&D, so you can explore that framework you've been hearing about on Hacker News.


You will:
- have around 1 to 3 years experience in web development.
- be proficient in at least one of these OOP languages (or similar): PHP, Javascript, Python, Ruby, C#.
- know what MVC means.
- have googled tips on how to build a RESTful API.
- have experience working with relational databases (We use SQL Server and MySQL).
- have experience with a framework, like Backbone, Django, or Rails.
- write easy-to-read self-documenting code.
- be comfortable interacting with non-technical people (i.e. product managers, designers).
- have a degree in computer science or something related.


Experience with:
- the full engineering stack
- building mobile apps
- Node.js
- NoSQL databases, like Redis or MongoDB

We'd also love to see your GitHub or Bitbucket profile (or other online projects).
