Great software jobs, great people. A part of Joel on Software

Kick-Ass Coders

at Socializr, Inc.

San Francisco, CA 94107

Socializr is looking for Kick-Ass Coders -- Employees #4, #5, and #6!

Socializr is a new Internet startup founded by Jonathan Abrams, the award-winning serial entrepreneur who created Friendster, and the co-owner of San Francisco nightclub Slide. Socializr is a free web service for sharing event and party information with your friends. It is our mission to be the best site on the web for online event invitations, event promotion, social planning, and event photo sharing. Socializr's offices are located in the South of Market area in San Francisco.

Socializr is a very unique new company offering a dynamic and fun work environment. The company is currently only three people, and we plan to stay lean and mean. We are looking for our first additions to our software development team. The ideal candidates will be able to quickly contribute and create results. We need energetic and fun people who are passionate about building a great consumer web application with large traffic and growth.

If your idea of a fun afternoon is rapidly prototyping a cool new feature, creating an API, integrating with 3 other web services, AJAX-ifying something by hand with tight code instead of bulky libraries, and tuning a SQL query to be 100 times faster, all in one day, this may be the job for you. On the other hand, if your idea of fun is sitting around in meetings or working on code that doesn't scale or products that no one will ever use, Socializr is probably not the right place for you.

Technology skills required:
- server-side web development in JSP/PHP/Ruby
- object-oriented programming (C++/Java)
- DHTML/JavaScript
- HTML and CSS

We are looking for quality, not quantity, for our small team. We don't care where you went to school or what your SAT scores were. We need someone who is a good fit for our small young team, who can really get things done.
