Job Description

Software Engineer Intern at RedBeacon - San Mateo, CA

About Us:

Redbeacon is a hot online local-services company. We're figuring out how to use technology to create a better way of finding and hiring local services. This is a huge market, and we're growing the space with other exciting companies such as Uber, Taskrabbit, AirBnB, and LivingSocial.

Our company was founded with fanfare -- funded by Mayfield Fund and Venrock and winning the top prize in the 2009 TechCrunch 50 , the SAI Startup 2010 and 2011 Always On 250 -- in the San Francisco Bay Area by 3 ex-Googlers.

As of January 2012, Redbeacon was acquired by The Home Depot -- a move that ensures that Redbeacon's mission will extend nationwide and that the company will continue to grow rapidly. It's a great fit, and the acquisition provides us with the resources to drive forward.

Redbeacon is a part of a fierce startup culture where we move fast and take risks. Our office is the kind of place where what you brainstorm in the morning can be implemented by the afternoon. Redbeacon employees are friendly, passionate, and hard-working, and everyone is expected to drive success immediately.
