Taproll is an early-stage startup founded by two veterans in social media (one with a PhD from Cal) who first met each other years ago while developing innovative social and mobile services for Yahoo! We're located in a waterfront office park complex near SFO and wouldn't be doing what we're doing if 1) it weren't truly exciting and 2) we weren't making a difference in people's lives. We believe in products that will have a sustainable and significant impact, not one-off applications that live and die in spans of months. We are very execution-focused and get things done quickly and efficiently while maintaining high standards for quality in everything that we do. If you are interested in learning more about us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What's the product?
Our mission is to take the guessing work out of hiring locally online. How many times have you needed to hire someone *great* - be it a babysitter, housecleaner, graphic designer, or fitness trainer - and got stuck searching on Google or Craigslist, where its hard to make heads or tails of who's actually good? Taproll makes it easy to *see* who you're hiring in high-definition, so you can hire based on what you see, not what you read. We're also developing an exciting social referral system to provide micro-incentives for people to promote and refer the great professionals on Taproll to friends and colleagues.
What's the role?
We're looking for a talented front-end web developer who has experience with (and an eye for) visual and interaction design, but who is a hard-core coder at heart. You'll be helping us concept and build innovative new ways for people to interact with data, images, video and other people via our website and via mobile applications. You should be able to design user interfaces and code them in a browser- and device-compliant fashion quickly.
In this role, we're looking for a senior level engineer with a proven track record who is interested in partnering with us as a member of our founding technical team. You'll work closely with our CTO (a search algorithms PhD from Cal) who will focus on the backend and architecture while you run the show on the front-end. Based on your experience and background, you'll be eligible for a founder's equity stake.
What you'll do:
-- Develop and help design Taproll's next-generation visual browsing experience
-- Make things appear, fade, slide and do things with minimal real estate and maximum efficiency
-- Design and develop new product features
-- Help with visual design and asset creation
Specific skill requirements:
-- CSS / HTML / HTML5
-- Good eye for user experience
Strongly desired skills:
-- Specific visual design experience
-- Specific interaction design experience
-- Experience with PHP Kohana framework
-- Mobile application development (iPhone / iPad / Android)
To apply, send Michael a note at email@example.com (include your resume and a brief introduction to yourself).
