Engineering Mill Valley, California

Our mission is to help people everywhere find a job and company they love. We are disrupting an industry by changing how people search for jobs and how companies recruit top talent.

We have raised approximately $200 million from top-tier VCs such as Google Capital, T. Rowe Price, Tiger Global, DAG, Battery, Benchmark and Sutter Hill and we are on a hyper-growth trajectory, successfully marrying user-generated content with high-value employment advertising and branding for companies.


As a Lead Java Software Engineer, you will play a central role in the design and development of our Jobs Platform. The ideal candidate will have a passion for development and a strong background in building dynamic, high-volume web sites with Java using an Agile development methodology. You should also have an analytical mindset, well suited for understanding information retrieval and machine learning algorithms.

As a fast-growing startup, we look for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment - which means wearing many hats, being able to change direction quickly, and showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises.

In this role you work with a small, collaborative team of engineers, product managers, and designers - so excellent interpersonal and communication skills are also a must. And most importantly - we look for people that can prioritize, multi-task, and deliver - because it's a lot more fun to get things done.


5+ years of software development experience on large scale, high-volume sites

Experience with Java and related tools including refactoring IDE's, Spring, Hibernate and other open source technologies

Experience working in an Agile environment with a focus on test automation

Bonus: Experience working with any of the following areas: open source search software (Lucene/Solr) or other information retrieval technologies; experimental design, A/B testing, statistical analysis; Machine Learning (ML); Natural Language Processing (NLP); Big Data (Map-Reduce, Hadoop, Pig); Web crawling; Internationalization

We truly believe that where you work matters and, as a career community, we know a thing or two about what makes employees happy.
