We're looking to add an Application Developer to our team to continue to grow and evolve Ning's flagship service. You'd be joining a small, flat organization populated with people who are passionate about creating beautiful software used by millions of people in their daily lives. We're looking for a PHP & AJAX developer who is happiest using Agile development, SCRUM, extreme programming, or some interesting hybrid while working on semi-autonomous projects in a flat organization.
Play a key role in designing new features (that will be used by millions of people), and generating ideas for updates and development, often in 2-4 week cycle times.
Ability to work with other teams - such as design and product management - but also work independently; having ownership of projects concerning features for networks on Ning.
Work on both front-end features - like photo sharing, video sharing, events, discussions, and blogs - as well as continuously optimizing the back-end infrastructure to increase performance at rapidly increasing levels of scale.
BS/MS in CS or equivalent.
Experience with PHP, AJAX, and HTML/CSS.
Java or C++ or object oriented design experience.
Experience programming scalable web applications.
Knowledge of web services, and agile development methodologies desired.
Know your way around Flash.
Curiosity. You've created a social network on Ning. You dive into a bit more detail and are struck by the Ning Content Store and why we chose that architecture. You have lots of technical questions for us.
