Job Description

Want to work at a start-up where you can really make a difference?

Does disrupting a $90B talent acquisition market sound big enough? Glassdoor is just about to do that with over 20M members, thousands of customers and a fresh round of $50M funding from top investors. Glassdoor, the world's fastest growing career community and 2013 Webby Winner for "Best Employment Website", is looking for a talented junior engineer to help take our product to the next level.

What You'll Do:

As a Java Software Engineer, you will play an important role in helping expand Glassdoor's job coverage. You will be responsible for implementing new crawl and feed strategies to pull job information from a variety of sources, and troubleshoot existing crawls.

As a fast-growing startup, we look for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment, showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises. In this role you work with a small, collaborative team of engineers and product managers - so excellent interpersonal and communication skills are also a must. And most importantly - we look for people that can prioritize, multi-task, and deliver - because it's a lot more fun to get things done.

What You'll Bring:

Degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience
Experience with Java technologies including J2EE, Spring, Hibernate and other open source technologies
Strong understanding of web technologies (HTML, Javascript, XML, XPath)
Bonus: Unix Shell Programming, SQL, Regular Expressions

About Glassdoor is the only site that provides a complete, real-time, inside look at what it's really like to work at a company - ratings, reviews, confidence in senior leadership, and salaries - for free. Although we're just getting started, Glassdoor is already providing what we think is very compelling information, including:Detailed company reviews.See what employees on the inside really think with reviews that hit on the good, the bad, and a lot more in between. We encourage constructive feedback in our company reviews and ask respondents to provide "pros" and "cons", along with "advice to senior management." Employee ratings on workplace factors and leadership. We know people have different motivators for work, so we ask users to rate a range of workplace factors (work-life balance, career opportunities, communication, compensation and benefits, morale, recognition and feedback, senior leadership, fairness and respect). In addition, we also collect & calculate a real-time CEO approval percentage to provide a pulse of how employees think the CEO is doing at any given time. Real-time salary/compensation details by title and company. We don't roll-up our salary information by job category or by industry like many sites and sources. You can see details on salary, bonuses, commissions and more for titles within companies that you'll immediately recognize. See exactly what a Software Engineer at Google or a QA Engineer at eBay makes. With information posted everyday, users can be sure they're seeing the latest. It's all FREE. The only cost to access all this information on Glassdoor is to post an anonymous review or salary of your own. We're using this "give to get" model to get started, and since it will only take a few minutes to complete and get access to what's behind Glassdoor we hope you'll give it a try.
