Job @ Vsnap: Groovy/Grails Software Engineer

Groovy/Grails Software Engineer

Boston, MA

There is a video messaging revolution coming and Vsnap is leading the charge. Vsnap makes it easy to send, request, tag, and store 60 second video messages. This will be a fast-paced (we’re MassChallenge finalists) but fun, high-profile (the CEO’s last company was acquired by Paypal before it launched) position and a stellar addition to your resume.

You should apply if:

  • you’re gung-ho about coding and building websites
  • you’re an open source fanatic
  • you want to work with Groovy/Grails
  • you’re kind of obsessed with social media (Google+, FB, Twitter, YouTube) and you’re not afraid of the share button
  • you’re independent and proactive, but also able to work with a team when you need to
  • you’re comfortable chatting with people online AND offline
  • you’re funny… doesn’t everyone want to work with someone that has a good sense of humor?
  • you have excellent time management skills
  • you have a college degree or equivalent experience in the computer science field

Brownie points if:

  • you like both front end and middle tier development
  • you understand all things video (e.g. wowza ec2, converters, etc.)


  • write highly maintainable object oriented code
  • milk the Cloud (don’t re-invent the wheel)
  • explore Cloud technologies such as Chef or Puppet
  • loving (and using) Vsnap and making sure others do too

We’ll probably have you doing some nitty gritty tasks too (such as migrating the alpha platform off .Net), but don’t worry, we won’t be sending you out for coffee and we’ll end up with a much better product!


  • We’re brand new so the learning opportunities are endless
  • You’ll develop amazing contacts in the startup world with brands, partners, and beyond
  • You’ll be in a really fun work environment (there’s a ping pong table and a pool table in the office… just sayin’)

Local candidates only. Contract to hire, with flexible scheduling.

To apply, send a resume along with links to your social media profiles to info [at] vsnap [dot] com. If you really want to win us over, you can make a video too.
