Process: Phone interview, face to face, offer (out of town candidates will have to pay their own way for a face to face interview)

Frontend Developer
We’re actively seeking a Frontend Developer with strong HTML/CSS/Javascript skills to join our creative team! We’re responsible for all the design, branding, and front-end coding work that goes on behind the scenes here. Our team is casual, hard working, and passionate about what we do.

• Expert level HTML/CSS/Javascript skills

We are Open Square, a software house working at the forefront of technology for our financial services customers. What others do with hundreds or thousands of developers, we do better with just a handfull – by being super smart.

[full-time] Engineer Extraordinaire at Expensify

March 24, 2011 - 12:11pm
Location: San Francisco, CA
URL: http://www.expensify.com/jobs

Description:

Perfect for new college grads or people who are bored with school and want to get started in the real world!

Hello, my name is David Barrett and I’m the CEO of Expensify. We do “expense reports that don’t suck!” (Google “expensify” to read more.) We’re getting crushed under an ever-growing pile of super awesome work, and I need one bright soul to help us dig our way out. I can guarantee you fun, an amazing opportunity to learn, and the siren’s call of distant riches. But only if you are all of the following:

- An incredibly hard worker, even when it’s not so fun. There is a ton of work to do, and a lot of it downright sucks. After all — we do the sucky work so our customers won’t need to. I need you to buck up and grind through server logs, user emails, source code, and bug reports, without complaint or supervision, and come back asking for more.

- A cool person to be with. Not a crazy party animal, just someone we can trust, rely upon, hang out with, bounce ideas off of, and generally interact with in a positive way, both personally and professionally. In fact, this is one of the most stringent requirements we have: would you be fun to hang out with day and night on some remote, exotic beach? This isn’t a rhetorical question, either: every year we take the company overseas for a month (on your own dime, sorry) and work incredibly hard while having a ton of fun. We’ve done Thailand, Mexico, India, Turkey, and the Philippines (with an approaching super-typhoon, no less). Where do you want to go next?

- Super talented, in a general way. We’re going to throw a ton of work at you of every possible sort, and you need that magic skill of being able to figure it out even if you have no idea where to start. On any given day you might bounce between super low-level coding, super high-level technical support, marketing-driven datamining, updating our user documentation, inventing/designing/building some new feature, etc. This is not a code monkey job — you’re going to be a full participant in the process, and you need to bring your own unique blend of skills to the table.

- Specifically talented in a programming way. You can instantly visualize solutions to problems big and small. Your code is always clean, well commented, has good nomenclature and indentation. You can switch on a dime between C++, PHP, Bash, Cron, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Dwoo, SQL — not because you know them all, but because you’re the sort of person who can just pick it up and figure it out. If you’re this sort of person, you’ll know what I mean. If not, then this position isn’t for you.

And there are a bunch more, but odds are if you got this far, nothing I can do would stop you from applying. That’s a problem because while I know you are awesome, it’s actually really hard and time consuming to find you in the midst of the literally hundreds of other applications I get from everyone else. So this is where I’m going to ask my first favor: can you make it really easy and obvious how great you are, so I don’t accidentally overlook you?

There are probably many ways to do that.  But the easiest way is to help me out by answering the following questions: 1. What’s the URL of your website? If you don’t have one, why not? 2. What’s your coding history? When did you start, and what have you done between then and now? 3. What do you want to do with the rest of your life, and how is Expensify a step toward your long-term goals? 4. Please forward this application to several people you think we should hire, cc’ing jobs@expensify.com. (Don’t worry, we’re eager to hire you and them. Indeed, good people have good friends: solid referrals here increase the odds we’ll hire you.) 5. Tell us where you heard about this opportunity.

That’s it. Email your answers to jobs@expensify.com. If you make an honest attempt to answer all the questions, I’ll make an honest attempt to reply in a timely fashion. I can’t wait to hear from you soon!
