About LOLapps
We're a young and scrappy startup in the social application space. We're
still fairly stealthy but you can read a bit more about us at
. It's reasonably accurate as far as these type of things go.

Here are a few bullets on us, because who doesn't love bullets?

- We're profitable, which makes us pretty much the opposite of your typical
echo chamber-spawned Si Valley startups. We're not in this to win a pat on
the head from Michael Arrington.
- We raised $4m in an A round with Polaris Ventures and value-add angels
including Ron Conway and Ariel Poler.
- We're only 12 people. You can make a MASSIVE impact here.

- Our office is in San Francisco, currently the in the old Yelp space, but
we plan to upgrade our digs soon (we'll still be in SF).
- We have all the typical startup stuff (free food, Rock Band, exposed brick
walls, etc).
- If you like beer, check out our kitchen: http://lolapps.com/office.html .

- Work with product management to break down high level goals into tasks and
- Design and implement large chunks of the product roadmap
- Mentor junior engineers
- Have a point of view on the product and be willing to debate it

- Intelligent but not arrogant
- Care more about the company and your group's goals rather than personal
- Desire and ability to quickly learn new languages and technologies
- 2+ years of experience as a software engineer
- Appreciate owning a full spectrum of responsibilities from backend (SQL,
memcache, etc) to frontend (JavaScript, FBML, FBJS)
- Interested in using / learning Python
- Detail-oriented: When someone sends you an email about something it
automagically gets handled with no need for a follow-up
- Interested in working in the social networking space
- Comfortable working in an environment where ideas are thought of,
described, and executed within a span of hours to days

Desired Qualifications
- Computer science or equivalent degree from a top computer science program
