Description

Premeer is a hot new social nightlife startup, that gives college students and millennial's awareness of the nightlife around them.

Today's problem? It's incredibly difficult to know what clubs and bars are hot on any given night. It's always a guessing game between texting friends who rarely know, sifting Snapchat and Instagram, or using Yelp which shows us REALLY old content which isn't indicative of tonight. So basically we've finally fixed that.

We're being called the Snapchat for Nightlife! It works similar to Snapchat, take a photo or video inside the club or bar and post it to that venue's story! Then everyone gets to see the vibe of different places & easily decide where to go for the night. Also, if you need an Uber? You can do that instantly in Premeer too. We've got your back.

We're looking for college brand ambassadors to spread and promote Premeer across campus, and get everyone using the app! We've built Premeer for college students specifically, and every student we've talked to can't wait for this to hit their campus!

Here are the kinds of skills and experience we're seeking:

Expertise - We’re looking for engineers with at least 2+ years of relevant professional experience building highly-scalable applications for the web. You have advanced knowledge of at least one scripting language (e.g. Python or JavaScript) and knowledge of the following: AWS, MySQL, Redis, Kafka, Node and React/Flux.

Fast learner - We’re looking for software engineers who thrive on learning new technologies and don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. You should be able to adapt easily to meet the needs of our massive growth and rapidly evolving business environment.

Fearlessness - You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point. You strive on proving that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.

Versatility - In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the whole web stack, you understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.
Strong architecture chops. You know how to build highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant services that support our unique rate-of-growth requirements. You stay up-to-date with the latest architectural trends.

Passion - You feel ownership over everything you ship; you'd never call code "released" until you’re confident it’s correct. You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.

A team player - You believe that you can achieve more on a team — that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others' candid feedback for continuous improvement.
