Architect and build scalable systems that enable Pulse's iOS, Android and Web apps to support over 15 million users.
Work closely with a tight-knit team of experienced engineers. Each of us is part engineer, hacker and product designer.
This role requires existing Backend / Server development experience. Specifically, we would love to hear about scalable and secure systems you have worked on or hacked together in your free time.
Leverage cloud-based platforms (AWS, Google AppEngine) to achieve significant horizontal scalability while minimizing development and maintenance time and enabling rapid product innovation.
Design and develop solid public or private APIs and related datastore infrastructure.
Apply your knowledge of software engineering fundamentals (algorithms, memory management, object oriented programming, concurrent programming etc.), to constantly evolving real-world challenges on a daily basis. Continually sharpen your skills and learn from other team members' strengths.
Learn and use the latest software development tools as appropriate, such as python / django non-rel / piston, memcache, big-table, redis, scribe and git.
Share the enthusiasm and energy of working in a high-profile, fast-paced startup that is changing the definition of news!
