Sōsh is changing the way people discover fun things to do with their friends. Since people spend 90% of their time and money offline, this is an incredibly profound problem to solve.
Sōsh is not about deals. Instead, it acts as a personal concierge, helping people discover exceptional local experiences, from cooking classes to scenic hikes to underground cocktail bars. It is seamlessly available across web, mobile web, and iOS.
We are a small and talented team founded by former Google and Slide employees, and backed by amazing investors, including Battery Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Keith Rabois, and Naval Ravikant.
As the fourth member of our engineering team, you will help us raise Sōsh to undreamt-of heights. From day one, you'll be building an application that excites users, as well as shaping the back-end technology to scale us up.
Sōsh is built atop a stack of EC2 servers, Python, Django and Celery, with MySQL, Redis and Memcache supporting.
You care about the product you're working on. You don't just accept a spec and code–you aim to understand the problem we're solving for our users, and regularly offer ideas of how the site can be improved.
When the site slows down, you know exactly where to look to diagnose, the quick-fix to patch things up to get everything working for now, and what you need to attack next to ensure a long-term solution that will prevent this happening again.
When faced with something you haven't tackled before, your adrenaline soars. You take pride in your craft. You write code (at least in part) because you love doing it.
We care more about experience and passion than formal schooling. Computer Science degrees are nice, but experience working on incredible web apps is much more important.
