[job list] Jobs at Slide.com



Hey ACMers-

Looking for an exciting tech job? I know you are, because I was in the
same position a few months ago. I am a former U of I student, and since
January I've been working at Slide, the cool new startup founded by Max
Levchin (another UIUC ACM alum and co-founder of PayPal). We do web,
windows, and mac development, and we're in need of a few more good
engineers (job descriptions are below). We're a fast growing, fast moving
company based in San Francisco (and I mean actually in San Francisco,
about 4 blocks from the Bay). If you're very smart, driven, and
hard-working, and want a great job, please email me your resume.
Take care,
Nick Smith

Windows Programmer:

We are doing some amazing things with our desktop client.  Video/Audio
support, real-time notifications, chat, super-tight desktop integration,
and a damn sexy interface.  We need someone who can no longer tolerate
ugly MFC forms, and wants to create a really slick user application that
will live on millions of desktops.



Server Engineer:

Servicing millions of image, audio and video requests a day is no easy
task. Add in the fact that our back-end is supporting not only web page
views, but also downloaded and embedded clients with real time push
notification, and you have a very exciting problem to tackle.  We are
looking for LAMP happy coders who have experience building out highly
scalable systems, and



Web Developer:

We have been really pushing the edges of web development using JavaScript,
Flash, CSS and even some classic Web1.0 hackery to provide a hand-tuned,
user focused experience.  Enabling a seamless integration between the web
and our downloaded clients presents many difficult and exciting
challenges. Think iTunes store on crack.




Frapprs and Sliders –

 

With our maps and tickers taking off, we desperately need to grow our engineering team with high quality people.  The best way to get these people is through people you have worked with in the past.  It is a very exciting time at slide with a rapidly growing user base and sexy multi-platform products.  I have prepared an email template describing the positions we have here.  Please add your own color and forward it on to all of your friends.  Even if they don’t have the experience described in this letter, they may know someone who does.

Hey <FRIEND COWORKER FAMILY MEMBER RABBI> –

 

Thought I would check in and see how things are going.   Sorry it has been so long.  Things at Slide are super exciting right now and have been keeping me very busy.  Our flash embeds have taken off and we are getting over 10 million ticker views and 10 million map views a day.  We are working on growing our engineering team to keep up with the demands of our users, and I thought you might know some folks who would be interested in working here
