Here at Ning, we’ve had the fortune of getting a lot done with a small group of highly productive and extremely talented developers. In the past month, we’ve been approached with a number of great opportunities to create new social web apps for us and others. Because of this demand, we’re looking to add another person to our team.

As a Sr. Developer at, you’ll be joining a team of talented, passionate developers, including:

  • David Sklar, author of Learning PHP 5, O’Reilly (2004), Essential PHP Tools, Apress (2004), and PHP Cookbook, O’Reilly (2002)
  • Jonathan Aquino, creator of Yubnub and software blogger
  • Diego Doval, lead architect of Ning and software blogger
  • Brian McCallister, architect, software blogger, and member of the Apache Software Foundation
  • Mike Rowehl, developer, software blogger, and co-founder of Mobile Monday
  • Martin Traverso, architect and software blogger

Ideally, we’d like someone here in Palo Alto full-time, however for the right person we’d consider a remote gig in our time zone (pacific standard time).

The opportunity is pretty straightforward:

  • Help shape technical direction of new, rapidly growing online service.
  • Build great software with a team of talented, passionate developers looking to make an impact on how people use the Internet in their daily lives.
  • Work on relatively autonomous, fast-paced projects in a flat org.

As for the job itself:

  • Develop new social web apps on Ning that are cloned, customized, and used by real people.
  • Determine new shared libraries, wrapper classes, and other developer features to incorporate into Ning’s online platform.
  • Ensure kick-ass performance, stability, scalability, and support of your social web apps.
  • Own your own projects – pursuing a combination of things that need to be done and things you want to do.
