pulsd is an experiential discovery platform on a mission to democratize fun in New York City.

With so much to do in New York City, it’s always hard keeping up to date on what’s best for you. And it’s also expensive. That’s why we started pulsd; to help New Yorkers uncover the best free events (brand launch parties, celebrity talks, sample sales) and to bring New Yorkers incredible savings on paid experiences (restaurants, spas, fitness, events and more).

We are built by New Yorkers for New Yorkers. Our office is located in the Prince Building, in the heart of SoHo, with sweeping views of City Hall, The World Trade Center and other New York City landmarks. Current partners include small businesses, all the way up to mega brands such as Tao Group, Union Square Hospitality, Pure Barre, Skin Spa, The Bowery Hotel and many more.

We’re looking for a great developer to join the team. You will be responsible for handling development on the back end and on the front end. You will work directly with our CTO to plan and build new features for both the website and the mobile apps.

You will be implementing entire features on your own, writing both the backend and frontend code to get it working. You will also be expected to quickly learn and adapt to a variety of technologies--such as additional gems or front end frameworks that we work with.

Candidates should be able to develop clear, clean, and maintainable object oriented code. In addition, the candidate should be familiar with front end development and writing object oriented code in Javascript that will work smoothly with the back end, usually via JSON.

Naturally, in such a small team, it will be crucial that candidates can collaborate well with team members. Strong communication skills and the ability to clearly explain concepts (technical and non-technical) to others are key.

Qualifications:
- 4 year college degree in engineering, ideally in computer science
- 1+ years Ruby or similar OOP experience, such as Python
- 1+ years experience working with Rails or another similar MVC framework
- 1+ years Javascript
- Experience with HTML, CSS, and working with web applications

Desirable:
- Knowledge of AWS and running services in the cloud
- jQuery
- MySQL
- Caching in web applications (how to use Memcache and caching strategies to improve page load speed)
- Experience with nginx and passenger
- iOS and Android app development
