R&D Engineer Delvv
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Recruiting for several engineering positions, including a lead engineer or Chief Technology Officer for an early stage startup building an innovative product in the mobile discovery and sharing space.
We're founded by successful, established technology entrepreneurs, who built people search and personal SEO into productized offerings, and have successfully grown large operating businesses. Our CEO is highly technical, with a physics and computer science background, and is very hands on with the product development process. We have several engineers on board already, but we are looking for a principal engineer for our backend server development work, top mobile app developers with iOS and Android experience, as well somebody to oversee overall engineering efforts and take over build-out of major product functionality from the CEO. All members of our engineering team should, most importantly, bring great new ideas to bear on our business as we near and move forward from our initial public launch.
Overall years of experience are not at all as important as raw intellectual horsepower. We are looking for superstars who have been looking for the opportunity to be a critical part of a team doing something great that will change the way people interact with technology, and want to do so in a small, high octane startup environment.
We are looking for somebody with experience in at least 2 out of 3 of 1) mobile app development, for Android or iOS 2) experience building server applications (preferably in Python) 3) search infrastructure/NLP/ElasticSearch/Lucene internals. Some Python experience is necessary, and it would be highly favorable if you have a decent bit of Java experience as well. Additionally, good leadership and team management capabilities should be demonstrated from your resume. Additionally, we are looking for somebody who's demonstrated the ability to develop themselves or lead development of successful, complicated projects with many moving parts.
Principal Server Software Engineer:
You are a Python guru. Java is old hat. You could out-Google Google in your sleep. You are a search technology master. You laugh in the face of scalable data management problems. You know when to use the right tools for the right jobs, understand the challenges of NLP, know when to use map-reduce, but can still deal with good old faithful relational databases where needed.
Mobile Application Engineer:
You have experience building successful Android and/or iOS applications, and are familiar with both Objective C and Java. You grok the way people think and use their handheld devices, you understand the idioms of popular mobile apps, have enough of an aesthetic sense that you can lay out and design components that look and feel platform appropriate, and aren't afraid to try new ideas out. You relish the idea of changing the entire landscape of mobile apps.
We are looking for people who are confident in their abilities, but it should go without saying that you need to be a team player and not be ego driven. The right candidates will be eligible for a significant option stake in the company as one of the first few employees, as well as a fair market salary and full benefit package. We are willing to assist with relocation to the Palo Alto area. If the opportunity sounds interesting to you, please get in touch with us and we will gladly discuss the company, team and business with you in more detail.
