Job Description

Desired Skills & Experience

These factors will make you successful in this role:

(1) Deep Software Technical Skills: You are deeply technical, understand how to break down problems and design extensible solutions. Reverse a linked list? That's way too easy for you. You write recursive programs navigating dependency graphs for fun. You are well grounded in object-oriented design patterns, algorithms, data structures, and development in C#.NET, or Java, etc. You know how to scale systems to a billion calls per day, how to parallelize requests, and how to apply asynchronous messaging. You have experience implementing distributed caching and know how to transform data while preserving integrity and consistency. In short, you could be the Architect or CTO of a large-scale Web 2.0 company. You likely have a BS, MS or PhD in Computer Science or closely related field.

(2) API Platform Experience: You understand the challenges of providing REST APIs (like LinkedIn API and Vkontakte API) along with SQL-style interfaces such as Yahoo's YQL or Facebook's FQL. You have experience implementing 2-legged and 3-legged OAuth authentication and authorization. You should understand how to throttle distributed API requests and implement fault-tolerant systems that offer commercial-level availability.

(3) Management and Cross-Organizational Influence: You have demonstrated successful leadership in building and leading small, high-performance engineering teams. You understand the value of relationships and are highly effective at influencing cross-organizational teams to implement internal component APIs to meet the needs of external consumers. You communicate effectively to all levels inside the company and with partners.

In short, you rock! Your team rocks too! If this is you, apply now.
