Description: We're starting a local community revolution! Our goal is a "Meetup Everywhere about Most Everything", and we're on our way. We help people "use the internet to get off the internet" because Meetups change lives and can change the world.

We are profitable, growing, and committed to building an all-star, all-NYC company. We are a company that values doers over talkers and mentors over managers. We are a company where people who take risks and win are rewarded and grow.

Meetup is hiring exceptional Full-stack Software Engineers to work on a platform that helps tens of millions of people worldwide Meetup. 

Meetup members have met spouses, gotten support, found jobs, and made lifelong friends through our platform. But while we’ve honed in on our mission to get people together offline, we overlooked one key piece: helping members connect in between Meetups.

The Communications and Connections team is working on brand-new products to help members communicate with the people they meet at Meetups. As a full-stack engineer on this team, you'll bring your ideas to life on a hybrid stack of Python, JavaScript, Java, and Scala.

Help our members make new friends…and keep them, too.  

Upcoming projects include:
  • Working across teams to build features that help organizers send effective, targeted messages to their members
  • Building mobile messaging tools to help members keep in touch with other members
  • Creating new features that help members discuss their interests and share resources
 
An ideal candidate has: 
  • Extensive experience programming HTTP networked systems
  • Solid knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Web APIs.
  • Experience with relational databases and understanding of SQL.
  • Ability to draft and visually communicate design concepts.
  • Attention to detail and a feeling of pride and ownership over quality.
  • Python or Java experience.
 
Our team is smart, ambitious, supportive, and above all — we are excited by what we do. The environment is relaxed and fun, even as we meet our deadlines and stay focused on quick, quality completion of projects.

Every member of the Meetup Team is expected to: be an Innovator; be a Collaborator; be a Champion for their ideas; be an Expert; have High Standards; be dedicated to the power of self-organized groups and our mission of A Meetup Everywhere About Most Everything ("MEME"); and most importantly, Get Stuff Done That Makes a Difference!
