Job Title: Senior Python Engineer 
Location: New York City - Relocation assistance provided 
Salary: $150,000 - $250,000 per year + benefits 

Entrepreneurial. Challenging. Exciting. Fun. Innovative. Edgy.
Distinctive. Sound like an interesting job? 

Our company was born out of a passion for bringing information to
consumers. We began with the mission of providing a smarter directory
assistance solution to telecom companies, so they could pass on a better
and lower priced service to consumers. As a natural extension of our
mission, we built our own market leading information brands in Europe
and extended our services into text messaging as well. We have recently
embarked on a new brand identity which reflects our desire to extend our
brand presence to the US and merge our multiple information services
under one umbrella. What will never change is our commitment to
persistent innovation so we can always provide our customers with the
best information experience possible. 

With our renewed identity, we setup a high priority intrapraneurship
effort, a web start-up nestled within a larger organization, to launch
our brand into the web and mobile space. This offers us the best of both
worlds: the stability and resources of our parent, with the culture and
agility of a startup. 

We aren't looking to create some fad products, but rather major
newsworthy and landscape changing products, backed by an extensive
marketing budget.  We are an eclectic group of intelligent, interesting,
and fun entrepreneurs with a passion for groundbreaking ideas. The
project is still in its early stages, so all hires have an immediate
opportunity to have a major impact and enjoy rapid career development. 

We operate out of our own Flatiron area loft-space, with an evolving fun
and energetic culture, and a growing list of amenities.  We hope that
all hires will take an active role in helping us define the culture of
our company. 

As a Senior Developer, you will be a foundational member of the core
technology effort, working intimately with the CTO and other senior
developers.  Gradually, as the team grows, there will be opportunities
to lead and manage a team of developers, if desired.  Right now, we
really need some hard-core builders.  If you're looking to change the
landscape of the internet with your own two hands, this is a great
opportunity for you.
