Full-time Developer

at Squareknot in Philadelphia, PA

Squareknot is a freshly-funded startup in Philly building a place to learn things with people. We think we've created what will be an invaluable service that will become a part of millions of peoples' lives, helping them learn new things every day with folks that share their interests. Basically, we're a crazy bunch of kids who somehow managed to hold on to the belief that we can change the world for the better.

We're looking for a founder-level developer that can help us bring Squareknot to life. Someone who can work independently, tell our founder Jason when he's wrong, and help drive the direction of the company in our small team. This is definitely not a cubicle job - you'll be out and about a lot in addition to building something that can make a real difference in peoples' lives. In the end, you will shape this service as much as the rest of us do.

The job comes with equity options and a really nice office on the 25th floor of the Mellon Center on Market Street, where you get to whiteboard on giant glass walls, which is super fun to do but very difficult to take photographs of. You'll also get to work with some of the most influential people in Philadelphia, who have fallen in love with our little team and big mission.

At the end of the day, working on Squareknot is a job for someone who truly cares about the way we learn with one another and wants to use that passion to make a dent in the universe. There will be early mornings, late nights, good and bad times, and we'll grow as a company and as a team together.

Sound like you? Then read on!

Key responsibilities:

- Backend design and development
- Build a platform that alters the fabric of how we learn


- Advanced proficiency in PHP, JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, and MySQL
- Familiarity with PHP frameworks, specifically CodeIgniter
- Familiarity with jQuery and node.js
- Familiarity with Git/GitHub
- Ability to work independently and adapt to rapidly changing situations with smart development solutions
- A drive and passion to make the world a better place by helping people learn with each other
