Description

Our mission is to help people everywhere find a job and company they love.  We are disrupting an industry by changing how people search for jobs and how companies recruit top talent.

Responsibilities

As a Senior Java Software Engineer, you will play a central role in the design and development of the Glassdoor product.  The ideal candidate will have a passion for development and a strong background in building dynamic, high-volume web sites with Java using an Agile development methodology.

As a fast-growing startup, we look for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment – which means wearing many hats, being able to change direction quickly, and showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises.

In this role you work with a small, collaborative team of engineers, product managers, and designers – so excellent interpersonal and communication skills are also a must.  And most importantly – we look for people that can prioritize, multi-task, and deliver – because it’s a lot more fun to get things done.
