launched our mobile apps (iOS and Android).  We  are in search of
someone to join our team of developers focused on our  interactive,
mobile publishing platform. You will help us maintain and  continue to
build-out this platform as a key member of our web  application
engineering team.

How you MIGHT spend your day

    * Designing, developing and maintaining our APIs and top level

small work group  on to build a product you are proud to put your name

into reality

puzzle fits together perfectly

experience including Javascript, HTML5 and CSS – transactional
business  applications within a structured framework

are excited by the possibilities
    * Your  application development experience involves writing APIs;
exposing  services for others to consume and making sure that all the
pieces/parts  work together smoothly

applications have a database (we use Postgres)
    * You have a passion delivering high performing, well-written
software that is easy to maintain
    * You thrive in an environment where "what if" is commonplace
and feel confined when the rules are already set in stone
    * You have worked in an early-stage company so you know what it means
to shift priorities and wear a bunch of hats
    * Open Source tools are your preferred sandbox
    * You are an organized professional capable of managing your time,
tasks and activities without daily guidance
    * You  have a talent for making sense out of obscurity – you
immediately begin  executing concepts in your mind the moment someone
has an idea
    * Building strong and long-standing relationships is an important
part of your being


    * A need for structure and repetition in every work day
    * Using the words, "it can't be done" in a sentence
