We are a mobile location startup focused on taxi ride sharing based in Asia.
We have a unique concept with a lot of interest from later stage investors eager in seeing how this app performs.
We're looking for a talented back end developer / architect with solid skills (python / Ruby on rails / PHP) to work on the backend system that interacts with the our iPhone app.
The backend database will be mysql/MonoDB for initial launch, with ambition to migrate everything to amazon EC2/SimpleDB service.
Our iPhone application depends on a suitable back end to provide near-realtime feedback for the users, so we are looking to move things onto Erlang at some point and if you can do it quickly we're open to that also. Push notification experience a definite plus.
We are looking for a developer familiar with Agile development methods to work on a aggressive schedule.
- PHP / Ruby On Rails / Python Expertise. Experience with various dev frameworks a plus.
- Experience with Mysql / MonoDB database optimization preferred
- iPhone (objective-C) coding experience preferred for better communication with iPhone dev but not necessary
- EC2 / SimpleDB experience
- Erlang experience
- Experience with Apple Push Notification Server Implementation
- Familiarity with PivotalTracker or equivalent preferred
