The Reason You Want to Work Here
You’ve read a dozen other job listings, and they’re all starting to sound the same. We’ll spare you.
What we really want is someone who loves to do great work, who loves to hone their craft, and who loves to think.
OwnLocal is dedicated to saving local newspapers.
Our flagship product, Local Hero, is a local business directory and review site that relies on special market knowledge that only a local newspaper can provide. We’re already serving thousands of customers and would like your help to serve millions. We’re a YC startup, funded, ramen profitable, and chaotic good.
The Way of the Samurai
OwnLocal’s development culture is focused on mastery. No matter how good you are when you come in, it is our goal to make every day a day for self-improvement. Code reviews, pair programming, etudes, show-and-tell — whatever it takes, we want to do it to make you even better at the craft that you love.
We are looking for passionate engineers from all walks of life and experience. If you have the desire, if you’re smart, and if you’re willing to learn, we are interested.
This is for all you recruiters out there. I know this is your job and that some of you are even good at it, but at OwnLocal we view your industry as a symptom of a problem that needs to be fixed. By using your services, we are validating a broken system and we just cannot do that.
So no recruiters, please. Seriously, please.
