Scribd - San Francisco, H1B, INTERN are welcome
Scribd (social publishing, top 100 website, YC '06) is hiring talented hackers and other technical people for a broad range of technologies.
We've now hired FOUR people from these "Who is Hiring" threads, including one just last month, and one the month before ... it really works!!
We're looking for people who want to work with:
☆ Ruby on Rails (we're the #2 largest rails site, after Twitter)
☆ iOS or Android
☆ Machine Learning / Data mining kinds of problems
☆ Back-end problems: scalability, web crawling, analytics
☆ Devops / building infrastructure and scaling the site
That said, we care way more about your personality and general hacking skills then what languages you've used so far, so if you haven't used these but want to break into mobile or web development, this could be a good opportunity for you.
We're profitable, very well funded and have a really fun office environment (go-karts + a zipline!). We've got flexible hours, a very engineer-driven company culture, and a really terrific team.
Scribd alumni have gone on to found 4 other YCombinator companies, more than from any other startup. We think this says something about the kind of people that we like to hire.
We're looking for full-time and intern hires (junior year or older). Visas and relocation are no problem. See more at scribd.com/jobs. Most jobs are onsite in SF only (with relo), but for devops roles we do hire REMOTE.
Feel free to apply by emailing me directly: jared at scribd.com. I'm one of the founding engineers here and I love meeting other hackers!
