We’re a small, growing, and ambitious start-up based in San Francisco and Portland. We’re proud to be funded by TrueVentures, who are a great group of folks.
Our mission? To make the best video app ever for smartphones and tablets, and to revolutionize the way we watch.

Do you want to change how people are entertained and informed?
We're looking for a genuine, smart, and naturally curious engineer who can help us connect people with exactly the right videos at the right time.
Data that's the result of, and that powers, a socially-driven system naturally must evolve as the people it represents and serves evolve. To represent the many facets of the people that make Showyou possible, we rely on a handful of core technology components: our core data platform includes extensive use of PostgreSQL, some Riak, and Solr. Ruby and Java power our web app and API, and we use Java for our high-demand backend processes (indexing, feed scoring, importing videos from external social networks, etc.).
We're quickly approaching 100 million videos shared via Showyou, and with that comes hundreds of millions of signals that we collect, store, index, and analyze to build services and internal data products that power our feed scoring algorithms, popular and trending computations, update our continuously updated search index, generate topic models, and more.
Your responsibilities will include working with the team to discover, evaluate and put into production systems that provide insight into this data; to improve upon them, support them in a production setting, and integrate with key components of our API; and to help maintain and improve all parts of our API and backend systems.Skills & Requirements
Showyou is an award-winning video app for the iPad and iPhone. We're trying to create the best video app ever made for smartphones and tablets; an app that people love to use as a result of simple, beautiful UI as well as sophisticated and practical use of large amounts of data. And by doing that, to change the way people are informed and entertained.
It's an audacious mission, but we're still a small team -- just six right now with plans to grow to 10 by end of this year. So you'll have a chance to make a significant, and immediate, impact. We're backed by TrueVentures (an amazing VC firm).
This position is in our wonderful San Francisco office (we also have an office in Portland). Don't live in San Francisco? We can work with you to fix that.
Interested? We'd love to hear from you.
