  • You have years of experience building web applications (front and back-end).
  • You spend your spare time learning new technologies and hacking.
  • You like sharing what you've learned with others and enjoy presenting new projects and ideas to people.

At GoInstant you'll be working on a variety of things, including:

  • Building demo applications (in multiple technologies: JavaScript, AngularJS, Node.js, Objective C, Ember, jQuery UI, Backbone, Bootstrap, etc.) to show off GoInstant's core platform technology
  • Building functionality that lives on top of GoInstant's core platform (there's a ton of cool stuff to do here!)
  • Writing documentation that's developer-friendly
  • Sharing knowledge with the developer community (blogging, going to conferences, presenting, etc.; think: "dev evangelism")
  • Working with users to help them integrate GoInstant and build awesome realtime, multi-user applications!

  • Tons of learning

What we’d like to see:

Along with your application, please include references to any open source contributions you've made or examples of side projects. Please include links to Github, LinkedIn and Twitter (if you have them).
