CS Intern Job at Austin Social Media Startup

  1. 1. Are you a smart and creative CS or Math major? Or know one?<br />Want to intern at the hottest social media startup in Austin?<br />
  2. 2. Now, you may claim to be smart and creative. <br />
  3. 3. But you could actually be a douchetool.<br />
  4. 4. And we don’t cotton to your type.<br />
  5. 5. In an attempt to suss your ass out, we want you to ask us a question.<br />
  6. 6. A question you don’t think we can answer.<br />Tweet it in 140 or less (no long updates) with @nocplace and #nocplaceintern in the tweet.<br />
  7. 7. Why intern at NocPlace?<br />Our enterprise social app had guidance from some fairly cool companies:<br />
  8. 8. And we are corporate philanthropists. <br />Like Tom’s Shoes, giving is woven into our business plan.<br />
  9. 9. How?<br />When members use NocPlace they earn levels and badges. <br />Each level achieved means school supplies for the neediest kids in the world.<br />
  10. 10. So, along with developer duties, you'll have to help pack the boxes with school supplies.<br />These are selfless things. And you must do this cheerfully. We will have beer. <br />
  11. 11. Now do you see why we can’t take douchetools?<br />
  12. 12. But there are some solid skills or experiences you should have:<br />
  13. 13. · A major or minor in Computer Science or Mathematics<br />· Experience developing with php or Ruby on Rails<br />· Experience writing queries to extract data from relational databases<br />· You like working in a fast-paced start up environment where you could quite easily be challenged with very different tasks each week.<br />· Work collaboratively with engineers to design optimal solutions.<br />· Comfortable operating in UNIX/Linux environments (command lines).<br />· Proven ability to solve complex problems. <br />
  14. 14. (But, if we like your question a lot, we’ll forget about your experience)<br />
  15. 15. Your tweet is due by 1pm CDT, Friday April 1, 2011.<br />Just one question, please. But feel free to RT it as much as you like.<br />All 15 of us will gather around a monitor and judge them.<br />We’ll DM you if we like your question.<br />
  16. 16. Good luck. If you’re the right person, we need you. <br />If you’re not, then you’ll know what you are.<br />
