(Phoenix, AZ Scottsdale, AZ Tempe, AZ Mesa, AZ Glendale, AZ Chandler, AZ Gilbert, AZ)
Description: We are looking for a creative genius to join our team at SpyFu. You will be designing and building the user experience for SpyFu.com.
A passionate audience relies on us to help solve their Search Engine Marketing problems. Your job will be to design and build a user interface for them that makes hundreds of terabytes of data as clear as possible. Often times, we have to think way outside the box and create new visualizations from scratch (see SpyFu Kombat or Ad History). But, ultimately, it's about taking lots of information and making it clean, snappy, and actionable for our customers.
· 2+ years experience.
· Really good problem solving skills.
· Drive to “get things done”. SpyFu is a small company, you’ll be required to wear many hats. The management is also pretty loose, so you’ll need to be able to keep yourself on task and make decisions that you wouldn’t have to in a big company. ** This is a the toughest thing for us to measure, so if you can think of a way to show us this side of your character, please go out of your way to do it.Should Haves, but not absolutely required:
· ASP.NET, .NET MVC – these are more likeshouldhaves. But, middle tier experience is required.
· An eye for design – or better yet, design and UX experience.
Nice to Have (so be sure to tell us about):
· Design Skills – If you got design experience, send a portfolio.
· Other Languages: Python, Ruby, Java, PHP, Node Js
· Development process – Agile / Scrum, Git, project leadership experience
· Search and Algorithms – Solr, Lucene, Mahout, Tokenizing, Clustering, LSA, etc.
· Big Data experience - >10TB scale. Moving data, processing data, replicating data.
· Internet Marketing Knowledge (PPC, SEO, Adwords, Display Media, Email Marketing, Social )
· Administration Experience – Hardware, DBA, SAN, RAID, Cisco, F5
· Economics, Quantitative Finance, or Statistics Background
· Crawling, Web Scraping, HTML Parsing
· Cloud computing (EC2, Azure, RackspaceCloud, MapReduce, S3, Hive, Pig, Hadoop, etc)
· Communication passion (do you *like* writing/blogging, video skills, podcast, twitter)
You can go to SpyFu.com and type in any domain name and see every keyword they buy on Google Adwords, every keyword they rank on organically, and how their ad copy and search rankings have evolved over the last 7 years. On top of that, our goal is to tell people not justwhatis going on but how to act. So, we need to figure out which keywords, ads, and content are actually profitable – and then show that information to our customers in a context that allows them totake action.
It’s a fun challenge, and we are the best in the world at what we do.
Based in the Scottsdale Airpark, SpyFu was launched in 2006 and is a self-funded, profitable and growing SaaS/subscription company.
If you get the job, you’d be the 11thfull time employee (not including the founder). But, that doesn’t mean we expect you to give upbenefits:
· We offer health benefits through your choice of providers.
· Retirement Plan (401k) with 4% matching.
· You get an office – with a door.
· Food and beverages are provided. (pretty much name it and it will magically appear)
· We have a commercial-grade automatic espresso machine.
· Lots of Toys: From unicycles to Xbox One, we’ve got the toys.
· We have a keg – actually two kegs. Right now, one of them is a homebrew by one of our developers (called SpyBrew White IPA), and the other is a Dos XX Amber.
· We play ping pong – a *lot*. We even have a ping pong robot. Oh, yeah, and there’s a ping pong instructor that comes in to give lessons every Friday.
· Foosball is kind of the new ping pong for us. There’s at least 3 games a day these days.
· There’s a rock climbing wall. Seriously.
· We also have a boxing and MMA trainer come in twice a week.
· Oh, and there’s a masseuse every week. And a hair stylist once a month. Yep…

We pay market-competitive salaries.
Partner: At SpyFu you have the chance to make partner. What that means, is that when you work on a product, and that product is successful, we’ll share its profits with you – as a direct percent. So, the more successful the product is, the more your paycheck goes up every month. So, for example, one of our developers gets a couple percent of SpyFu’s revenue because he’s written a decent amount of the code. When we launched SpyFu, that accounted for a very small percent of his salary, now it accounts for a very large part of it.
This is a pretty unique compensation option. We’ve never heard of anyone doing it before, but it’s pretty awesome and really connects you to the work you do. The latest release had a higher conversion rate? You paycheck goes up this month.
Equity: Ask about that at the interview, but rest assured there’s a nice upside.
