Our long term vision: Developing applications, interfaces, and platforms that make our relationships online really feel like relationships in the real world, and that enable us to make use of the countless new opportunities all that new connectivity is bringing. We’ve started deep-dive investigations of how humans connect and are re-thinking everything from how we prioritize relationships to how user interfaces dictate the ways in which we relate to one another. As a result, we are foundationally oriented towards building our products around the cutting edge of next-generation natural user interface platforms like Google Glass and Leap Motion as soon as (and even before) they are available to the general public.
We practice rapid iterative development and constant optimization and improvement, so you must be able to move fast and deploy your code often.
We expect candidates to have an existing arsenal of tools for identifying bottlenecks and inefficiencies, and the skills to squash them—while handling substantial user load.
We're looking for someone who takes pride in scalable code and has the drive to be the best.
We’re seeking a special individual who is intrinsically driven to create by an innate desire to make the world a better place and create beautiful products that users develop an emotional bond with.
