Fast-growing (2MM monthly uniques) YC S11 startup looking for 1st employee
on July 7, 2011 | hide
We are a hotttt Y Combinator company (voted 4th most likely to succeed out of 63 companies at "prototype day" this summer) looking for a smart developer. Our product is cool and consumer-facing. Check out our graph! http://i.imgur.com/Cg45E.png

You'll be working as a key member of a very small team -- this is not the "startup within a big company" thing, or even the "25 people at an expensive VC'd out loft office" thing. This is the real deal startup situation. We have 3 co-founders who've been working on the project since the beginning. You would be our 1st hire, so we are looking for something close to a cofounder.

We use the following technologies -- maybe you've heard of them!

  - Ruby on Rails  
  - jQuery  
  - Git  
  - Heroku  
  - SASS  
  - Facebook API  
  - Twitter API
Our product runs on crowd-sourcing, game dynamics, and reputation systems, so hopefully you're interested in that sort of thing.

We also want to build some kind of mobile product -- experience with iOS or Android development or with building mobile-optimized websites would be "nice to have"

We are angel-funded. You'll get a real stake in the company and a salary. We'll hook you up with whatever computing equipment you need to do your thing.

To apply, send an email to hugememe@gmail.com that includes (at least most of) the following about yourself:

  - Name  
  - Location  
  - Educational background  
  - Most recent job  
  - Anything you've built online that you're proud of  
  - Any open source contributions you're proud of  
  - Do you have a blog, twitter, or github account? 
    If yes, send them. If you don't have a blog, please 
    send some kind of <1 page writing sample

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
