You are someone who believes in the power of platforms - developer communities, APIs, data portability – and has been directly involved with the planning and development of them. You roll up your sleeves, write code and guide its growth. You might have been a Lead Engineer on SalesForce’s or Facebook's platform, or an experienced third party API developer.

This is a unique opportunity for exceptional people. You’re getting in on the ground floor of a growing project, with an industry waiting on our solution.

  • Test. We’re built to learn. Analyze what’s been done, improve it, repeat.
  • Work with mixed teams on support, customer feedback, platform evangelism, etc.
  • Champion an engineering culture of customer-driven products, efficiency and innovation.

Extra Credit

  • Have worked at a startup or similarly agile company.
  • Experience building advertising oriented products.
  • You’ve been an entrepreneur. Did it succeed? Great. Did it fail? That’s OK too.
  • Active in the community – real life, open source, etc.

What We Offer

Working at a growing technology startup is a unique choice, but it has its advantages. What we bring to the table is just as important as what you bring:

  • Above average stock options and benefits (including full health coverage, dental and vision).
  • We know everyone says it, but at isocket you will absolutely make a difference. Our company is a handful of people, and we’ll remain a small but powerful team.
