Soup is hiring!

Are you creative "just because", do you develop your own projects and are you unafraid of leaving well-travelled paths? Do you feel inspired by challenging problems? Are you honest and straightforward, speaking your mind? Do you like to work iteratively, frequently shipping products and updates that have an immediate impact on thousands of users? Do you appreciate a userbase that sometimes gets ahead of you in terms of creativity, and generally, awesomeness? Can you handle the freedom, flexibility and responsibility that comes with working in a productive, fast-paced and sometimes chaotic startup environment?

If you are that kind of person and your skillset fits one of the following job descriptions, we'd really like to hear from you.

a) JavaScript developer

The upcoming Soup relaunch relies heavily on JavaScript. You will be working with bleeding-edge HTML5 client-side technologies, both developing rich, touch-ready visualizations of multimedia data and helping to build up a developer-friendly framework for client-side app development.
Optional bonuses: Design and UI skills, experience writing libraries that other people depend on, experience with client-side frameworks like Backbone.js, experience with CoffeeScript, Python or Ruby (on Rails).

b) Operations generalist

Soup needs someone that takes care of a growing stack of servers and software components in a holistic fashion, meaning that you really care how all the machines are doing, what we could do to improve speed and uptime, while at the same time growing the service and the userbase. You'll need to move terabytes of data, control multiple instances of our application and plan future architecture changes to keep up with Soup's growth. Familiarity with scaling PostgreSQL (replication, etc.) is required. Some cloud knowledge would come in handy too. 

You'll be joining a team of three in Vienna, Austria, working out of a hip coworking space (though a future move to Silicon Valley is likely) and be an equal when it comes to shaping the future of the product and company. The position is competitively remunerated. You are not required to speak German, but your English should be adequate for elaborate technical discussions, knowledge transfer and documentation.

Our general tech stack involves many of the latest and greatest in web development, from RoR to Python, JavaScript/HTML5, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcache, Varnish and many others. See for yourself!


- Familiarity with Soup and/or competing products as a user
- Activity in open source projects, user groups, hacker communities, etc.
- Startup affinity, familiarity with the "lean startup" methodology, metrics-driven development, agile development practices, etc.
- Front end and UI design, marketing or SEO skills
- Immediate availability

We ♥ diversity: Members of groups underrepresented in the tech scene will be given precedence. Please don't hesitate to apply.

To apply, email team@soup.io. No need for formalities, provide a personal introduction and links to your work instead.
