Ning is looking for brilliant Front and Back-end Software Engineers!
We are currently looking to meet talented engineers in the Bay Area and will be in Seattle in mid July.
If you don’t know Ning (www.ning.com), we’re an online platform that lets you discover and create your own social networks for your interests and passions.

The Palo Alto-based company was founded by Marc Andreessen and Gina Bianchini in 2004. In the past year, we have experienced a 388% growth and currently host over one million social networks, each one individually customized by the owner of the network. Ning is unique in that our social networks are applications that run entirely on a completely programmable platform that supports arbitrary code execution inside our own backend. We are looking for passionate and talented engineers to join our Development team!

Our Development team is separated into two groups:

- The Application Developer group is a small, flat organization populated with people who are passionate about creating beautiful software used by millions of people in their daily lives. We use PHP and Javascript on top of the Ning Platform REST APIs to deliver an extremely friendly and infinitely customizable experience to Network Creators on Ning.

- The Platform Engineering group is responsible for the care and feeding of the Ning Platform. Platform engineers are rapidly scaling a unique online platform while optimizing performance, efficiency, security, concurrency, data consistency, and data analysis. We develop in Java, Ruby, Javascript, PHP, and C++, and we build on open source platforms such as Jetty and Hadoop Our ideal candidates have strong technical and communication skills. More importantly, they should have curiosity for Ning and new technologies.

If you’re in the Bay Area, we hope to hear from you soon.  If you’re in Seattle, we hope to speak with you soon and see you in July!
