I posted about our portfolio company Outside.in earlier this week. In the past month, they've closed a big new financing, secured an important strategic partnership with CNN, and they continue to ramp their hyperlocal content network, which is a top 200 internet network according to Quantcast.
The thing that makes all of this possible is a group of top notch software engineers and they are looking to hire a bunch more. This job posting explains exactly what they are looking for. But for those who need some more data before clicking on that link, here's a quick summary:
Solr/Lucene, message queueing, and Postgres/PostGIS. We build mobile
apps (iPhone, Android), Web apps, and API's. We're agile where it makes
sense, but mostly sensible, intelligent, clever and hard-working. We
prefer generalists who have lots of successes committing at every layer
of the stack.
We want you to have one or more of the following areas of interest and real-world experience:
- Geo: Geographic data, geometric containment and mapping API's
- NLP: Passion for text analysis and semantic extraction, with a particular eye towards balancing accuracy and throughput
- Ad Serving, Monetization, Optimization and Exchanges: OpenX, DFP,
Google Ad Manager, RightMedia, etc… revenue performance metrics and
A/B monetization strategies
So, if that piques your interest, please click on this link and learn more. I can assure you its a great company to work for and the software engineering challenges are both interesting and problems worth solving.
