Rap Genius is hiring!
Fuck it, I’m gonna paste the whole thing in!!!
Shit’s getting CRAY.
Over the past 3 years we’ve grown from nothing to the biggest hip hop site on the Internet. Now, we’ve raised 15,000 racks from Andreessen Horowitz to become the biggest site PERIOD.
But we need more geniuses to make this happen – right now there are only 5 members of the RG fam who program!
SO: if you are
- A genius Rails programmer
- A genius iOS / Android programmer
- A genius front end developer who can also design
You’re down to help build the Internet Talmud (aka the best hip hop site, the best lyrics site, the best music social network, the best wikipedia for explanations of all of text, etc, etc)
HIT UP email@example.com with:
Your name and online identity – i.e., your Twitter, Github, Blog, Stackoverflow account, personal website, etc. The more info the better.
Location – you can’t get the true RG cult effect working remotely, so only apply if you live in NYC or are willing to relocate (our office is in Williamsburg)
Educational background and most recent job (or just send your resume or whatever)
If you come in for an interview, you’ll start by making a short technical presentation to the team and taking their questions. Generally this takes the form of “throw up a screenful of code and explain what it does / why it’s cool”, tho I’m down for whatever as long as it’s technical. What will you present?
THE MOST IMPORTANT: What have you built online that you’re proud of? Any cool designs to show off? Maybe send me some code?
This job has some pretty serious bennies!:
- SICK salary & equity. You won’t be taking a pay cut to work here (unless you work for a hedge fund..)
- Free bomb health insurance
- Unlimited free Seamless
- Gym in the building
- Whatever computer setup you want
- Free bike parking in the building
- We pay your phone bill and when you join we’ll upgrade you to the newest iPhone (or, IF YOU INSIST, Droid)
