Job Description

LOCATIONS: CHICAGO, SEATTLE, BAY AREA

The client is looking for the next wave of great back-end software engineers. We work in small, independent and agile teams, and collaborate with product designers to implement stuff quickly. As part of their technology team, you'll use a variety of technologies and development practices to build pioneering local commerce applications used by hundreds of millions of people.

There are not a lot of boundaries here, so expect to make a big impact. The code we check in today is running in production around the world within a week - sometimes that day. So they need people that will take pride in the quality of their code and take it personally when there's a bug that affects our customer experience.

The kind of stuff you'll be doing:

  • Designing high-performance RESTful web services serving billions of requests a week
  • Personalizing content and promotions based on user interests
  • Unraveling the myriad of payment technologies available globally
  • Optimizing placement of inventory across fulfillment centers
  • Building large-scale infrastructural data systems using open-source technologies

The kind of experience they're looking for:

  • BS, MS, or Ph.D. in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • Strong programming fundamentals - data structures, algorithms, OOD
  • Experience in at least one server-side language (e.g. Java, Ruby, Python) and one dynamic scripting language (e.g. Ruby, PHP, Python, Perl)
  • Experience across all levels of the technology stack from browser to DB
  • Familiarity with SQL database programming and performance
  • Excellent understanding of how web and mobile technologies work
