We believe technology and design are the keys to building a great company and product. Our culture is centered around building extraordinary user experiences and doing so requires a technology stack that enables, not constrains. We are using a light web framework (Python/Pylons/jQuery) running on Amazon Web Services (EC2/RDS/S3/CloudFront). We believe that high quality engineering and design comes from simplicity, not complexity. We understand that simple solutions are not always the easiest solutions, but are worth the investment.

We’re a small engineering team with strong technical talent and lots of real experience in building scalable consumer internet sites (experience from YouTube, Google, HOT or NOT, Howcast, Linden Lab and Crunchyroll). We are looking for talented engineers that share our philosophy and are looking to make an impact. Above all, we look for passionate individuals who enjoy building product at any level of the stack and take pride in their work.
