Node + Rails + MongoDB Early-Stage Product Engineer

Location: Venice, CA

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

Job Description

Epoxy is an early-stage startup newly funded by top-tier VCs. We are aggressively building product and are seeking a crack full-stack engineer to join our team. You'll be an integral member of our small and focused operation working on everything from slick UIs to scalable infrastructure, novel architecture to social service API integrations. In order to succeed, we think you'll need:

  • BS or MS in Computer Science, a related degree from a top-tier program or the equivalent experience and mastery in industry
  • Substantial real-world engineering experience with products shipped
  • Strong, well articulated opinions on product design and engineering issues along with genuine flexibility and enthusiasm for approaches other than your own
  • Preference for fast-moving markets, products, teams and the sometimes-ambiguous and fickle nature of early-stage startups
  • High personal value on culture and culture fit in a job
  • Deep sense of personal product ownership and long-term interest in developing technical and soft skills

You'll be working in a (surprisingly affordable) Frank Gehry-designed building 4 blocks from the beach. We guarantee the work environment to be more entertaining than your average tech start-up.

Skills & Requirements

We seek smart, effective, interesting people and prioritize those attributes over a particular technical or language skill set. That said, we're building on a thoroughly modern stack and value experience with:

Ruby, Rails, Node.js, jQuery, Backbone.js, SASS, MongoDB, Redis, Memcached, nginx, HAProxy and AWS
