LABS
Want a new challenge? Come work for Pivotal clients!

At Pivotal Labs, one of the services we provide is bootstrapping startups, including helping them interview and hire. We currently have clients looking for skilled engineers to build their development teams. This is an excellent opportunity to learn Extreme Programming by working side-by-side with Pivotal’s talented and experienced developers while at the same time getting in on the ground floor of a small and dynamic product team.

Pivotal Labs and our clients place a strong emphasis on Agile development and its many aspects: Pair Programming, Test-Driven Development, rapid iterations, and frequent refactoring. General technical requirements include serious web development experience, and a significant subset of Ruby, Rails, CSS, JavaScript, or MySQL.

Here are short descriptions of Togetherville and Honk, San Francisco-based clients of Pivotal Labs currently looking for developers. The full job postings follow.

Togetherville is an early-stage, funded startup at the crossroads of learning, technology and society. Starting with our highly-respected and successful Funders and Advisors, we are building a team that is excited about getting a ground-floor startup experience and is capable of consistently meeting and exceeding the high expectations of success we have set for ourselves. We are extremely passionate about what we’re doing and just as passionately looking for focused and fun people to join our team. We are not hung up how many years of experience you have. We’d rather start with your potential and what you can do and then go from there!

Honk.com is a new online automotive website that will make car shopping fun and social. We will enable consumers to experience a new way to explore new cars. We have partnered with a top social website to deliver this new way of car shopping and are funded by one of the largest media companies in the world. Our small team is made up of an experienced group of humble, efficient, and hyper-passionate individuals who are veterans of the automotive industry and social media space. We are proud of our ego-less culture, one that promotes team thinking, not individual accolades. If you’re interested in helping prove that social media and car buying go hand in hand, social networks serve a bigger purpose than keeping up with one’s day, and a small team can outdo the work of an army – then we may have a seat waiting for you.

If you are interested or for more information please contact the company directly. This is an exclusive service provided to our clients, no external companies or recruiters please.

Full job postings follow.

Honk

Honk.com is a new online automotive website that will make car shopping fun and social. Consumers experience a new way to explore new cars, focusing on what other real people actually think, not product specifications or biased editorial. Our site is 100% consumer driven with no journalists or former race car drivers telling you what minivan or sedan you should purchase. Instead, users find real people sharing their opinions and experiences. We have partnered with a top social website to deliver this new way of car shopping and are funded by one of the largest media companies in the world. Thankfully, our partners allow (and encourage) us to remain financially independent, unpolitical, and fast-moving… a true start up.

Our small team is made up of an experienced group of humble, efficient, and hyper-passionate individuals who are veterans of the automotive industry and social media space. We are proud of our ego-less culture, one that promotes team thinking, not individual accolades. If you’re interested in helping prove that social media and car buying go hand in hand, social networks serve a bigger purpose than keeping up with one’s day, and a small team can outdo the work of an army – then we may have a seat waiting for you.

Honk is developing a platform of distributed applications and a destination website that will engage consumers’ existing social networks. To be clear, we are not building yet another community or social network. Many of our social applications will reside on our partners’ sites with the intent to drive users to honk.com for a richer experience, including unique content, interaction, and transaction-oriented tools. We will continue to expand our product over the next twelve months. In addition to deep knowledge of Ruby on Rails and Agile / Test-Driven Development precepts, we hope you have a thorough understanding / are comfortable with:

  • Amazon S3/SQS/EC2
  • CSS/Javascript/JQuery
  • Thin/NGinx/Mongrel
  • RSpec/Webrat/Selenium
  • CSV and XML data feed integration

Previous experience working in online automotive or social media is desired, but definitely not required. Honk is currently located in San Francisco with some ties to Los Angeles. Our ideal candidates should reside in one of these two major metro areas, although we are open to “off site” developers who have the right skills and background.

Please send inquiries to Bruce Krysiak, CTO: techjobs@honk.simplicant.com
