  • ex lead developer of another web 2.0 company
  • Marketer who won an international marketing competition twice, beating out Fortune 500 companies
  • and other great people!

As our Web Developer, you will work on our new web application product. You will be responsible for programming core business logic in the application layer of the back-end.
