Job Description:

What is BrandYourself?

BrandYourself is the first purely web-based platform that makes it easy for non-techies to improve their online reputation. We’re a young, rapidly growing and venture-backed company looking for the right teammates to fit our culture.

Our platform has four main components:

* Site builder: Publish a website in five clicks

* Accounts: Grade the effectiveness of your social media accounts

* Brand Dashboard: Manage and engage followers, friends and connections

* Stats: Track how your reputation is growing over time

We’ve been fortunate enough to be named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the Top 5 Startups in the U.S., and have been covered in national publications and television including ABC, NBC, CBS, U.S. News & World Report, and Mashable.

Does this describe you?

You’re passionate about your work, not a 9-5er looking to punch the clock.

You’re a LAMP rock star (not a diva). You’re opinionated about how to do things with logical reasons to back it up. You’re a creative problem-solving teammate and wiling come to solutions as a group. You used to play with legos as a kid, and you push back against normal conventions because there are more efficient ways of doing things.

You want to build applications and explore the possibilities of PHP. At BrandYourself, you’ll be building new features and releasing them every single week. You care about building an intuitive system and if users aren’t happy, neither are you.

You take pride in building in writing extendable, stable, scalable code. You code because you want to, not because you have to. You work well with deadlines and like rapid development.

What’s the position?

We’re looking for an experienced developer interested in taking on a fast paced development with an aggressive release cycle. The work will challenge and expand your skill set. Although you can work remotely, we do prefer if you are located in the central New York region.

This developer position is a 40 hour a week position. We are looking for a long-term addition to the team, with a four-week freelance evaluation period.

You will join our task-oriented project development team, take part in team meetings and develop from written specifications with specific deliverables and deadlines.
