Developers, developers, developers!
Are you the best developer you know? Tipjoy is going to be huge. Because we only want the best, we want you to be a part of it.
Tipjoy is a new micropayments service that will revolutionize how payments are done online. We're strong supporters of free culture and currently support a voluntary payments model. We make it extremely easy for people to leave tips for stuff they love online. Rather than turning people away by gating content, Tipjoy allows people to choose to leave a tip for a content if they think it was valuable.
0. You need to be really, really smart.
1. A sense of aesthetics and design
3. Experience in configuration, scaling, and deployment for servers and databases.
4. Experience managing complex, dynamic systems (especially people)
We like effective people that can focus to get things done and make real things. We're building a culture which demands excellence. We understand that anything that lets you perform better is worth it: fully loaded Macs, enormous monitors, Aeron chairs, food, etc.
