New Job: Front End Developer

Title:  Front End Developer

Hiring Company: Meltwater Labs

Company Description:  

In 1943, an American aerospace company – Lockheed – gathered their most talented engineers in a dingy hanger and assigned them an unthinkable mission to build the first ever American fighter jet to score a kill in aerial combat. In the years that followed, the Lockheed Advanced Development Program (aka. Skunk Works) developed some of the most famous aircraft designs of all time, including the U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird, the F-117 Nighthawk, and the F-22 Raptor.

In 2013, a Norwegian media intelligence company Meltwater launched their own Skunk Work, called mLabs. mLabs mission is to explore the furthest lands, the darkest areas, for ideas, technologies, and products that will propel Meltwater into becoming the global leader in big data outside of the firewall. To make this transition to new markets, new data types, and new products, a rapidly iterating center of innovation is critical.

Meltwater Group is seeking talented, highly motivated individuals to lead in the creation of products for a new research and development department (Meltwater Labs). As a successful candidate, you will put to use your wealth of experience across many aspects of software engineering. This will include design/architecture, implementation, and testing.

You’ll be working with a young, tight and passionate team who like to get out to Yosemite for a hike, or Pacific for a surf, or Napa for some wine tasting together now and again. We treat our employees with excellent benefits and have a lucrative bonus structure.
