Stealth YC Startup Hiring System Software Engineers
on Nov 10, 2010 | hide
We are a well-funded-but-stealth YCombinator company solving a fundamentally fun and hard problem in the system software space. 

There are two of us today and we're looking to hire Engineers #1 and 2 to help us expand and grow our business and product. Because of the nature of our product you will have the opportunity to work on both incredibly low-level and high-level problems. Because of the size of our team, you will be "CEO" of whatever you create.

You should be extremely detail-oriented and have a high bar for quality - for us, performance is crucial and errors cost lives (just kidding! maybe.) 

This is a salaried full-time position with stock options and medical benefits (other benefits listed below). If you're curious and want to know more, shoot us an email at stealthycstartup@gmail.com.


Some fine print:

We really, really, want you to have a deep knowledge of:

* File Systems, Operating Systems

* Highly scalable server architectures 

* Networking and Distributed Systems

* Databases background is a plus 

Additionally, you should have: 

* B.S, M.S, or Ph.D., in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent

* Expert knowledge of either C++ or Java (Shell scripting and Obj-C are a plus).

* Familiarity with the UNIX working environment 

If you have any projects you've done on the side, we'd love to see them!


* Competitive salaries and stock options at an early stage startup

* Medical Benefits

* Free lunches, snacks, and a fridge fully stocked with BEvERages

* Build your dream development machine

* An XBOX 360 and Netflix

* Health insurance

* Working on University Avenue in Palo Alto (goes well with the free lunches ;)
