Summer 2011 YC company seeks CoffeeScript drinking engineer (Chicago)
on Sept 7, 2011 | hide
We're an un-announced YC company that's dragging online advertising into a better and brighter future. The company is profitable, growing fast, and solving fun problems along the way. Our current fun problem is recruiting, we need sophisticated (and classy!) engineers to help us get more done. Read on for the tech world equivalent of a personal ad:

If you love coming up with ways to make users smile and have the technical chops to put your ideas into action, we want to talk to you. You'll be most effective if you're familiar with and excited about the various levels of frontend tech, including client scripting (we use CoffeeScript) and the magic that gets things in front of users (we use Rails/Node.js). Design talent and good ideas about big data visualization (d3 is fantastic) are especially cool.

Our stack is modern, shiny, and backed by a MongoDB/Redis combo handling several million events per day. We do automated deployment because people should see features while they still smell nice.

Send us an email (syncretic.sausage@gmail.com) and let us know what you think. Chicago is preferred, the Bay Area is a possibility.

Odds and ends: we realize the last several Hacker News job postings have been for engineers. You can't go wrong with any of those companies, honestly, but we think there are enough amazing people on HN to scoop one up for ourselves.

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