About GoInstant

GoInstant is a startup owned by Salesforce. We’re quick-moving and ambitious. We’re building technology that turns the web into a shared experience. It’s never been done quite like this. And the opportunity is big.

As part of the Salesforce family we have access to an incredible amount of resources. It’s the best of both worlds: a startup environment combined with everything Salesforce has to offer.

We have an open environment where everyone contributes. We’re solving seriously hard problems, doing tons of R&D and chasing big dreams.

Let’s talk about you:

You love developing simple, elegant solutions to complex problems. You live and breathe the web.

  • You have 2+ years professional experience building web applications.
  • You want to work with JavaScript and learn node.js (maybe you’ve already started learning node?)
  • You’ll be working with Redis and MySQL.You want to do a deep dive into web servers, web proxies and web browsers: HTTP, HTTPS, WS, DNS, browser events, HTML parsers, and the DOM.

GoInstant is a startup. Everyone has tons of responsibilities and big challenges in front of them. We move fast, we care about vision and we have lots to accomplish. You’ll be contributing every single day.

What you'll be doing:

You'll move quickly, developing innovative multi-user, real-time applications that change the way people interact on the web. You’ll work in all major browsers, with the latest browser technologies. You’ll learn how the web is built from the latest applications to the oldest sites; from the structure, style, scripts, and servers that run it.

Job perks:

  • All the benefits of Salesforce - health, vision, dental, gym, phone.
  • Weekly team lunches and dinners
  • Great, open workspace
  • 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).

Also in your application tell us how you think GoInstant works technically. We’re not looking for a long essay, just your thoughts and assumptions on the technology.

Note: This job is at our head office in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We’re happy to help move people here if need be.
