Mission Viejo, CA

IntelliSurvey develops cutting-edge software for web surveys and online reports. Sure, there are many ways to deploy simple web surveys, but we focus on the most complex and tricky projects. For example, we run Fortune’s Most Admired Company’s survey, which goes out to thousands of CEOs and Fortune 1000 board members. We handle complex surveys that go out to hundreds of doctors, with each one being paid a few hundred bucks to take the survey. So our software has to handle things like quotas, complex branching, fraud detection, and many other things that simple tools don’t even think of doing. We also need advanced tools that allow clients to slice and dice the survey data we collect. Therefore, we need expert developers to make it all happen.

However, we aren’t looking for people to program surveys (at least not with this posting). We already have another team that does survey programming and works with market research clients on a daily basis. This posting is all about finding candidates to build the software that builds the surveys. We need programmers who can write clean, modular code to help us extend and improve our software. Now is a great time to join our team, as we are design and developing and a major new software release.

We will consider a range of candidates, from entry-level to experienced.

The technologies we use include:

  • Object-oriented Perl (Moose) and Plack/PSGI, for back-end code
  • Javascript for front-end code, which will be increasingly important as we are currently refactoring our front-end interface
  • Javascript libraries, including ExtJS and jQuery
  • PostgreSQL database, with the Perl DBI
  • MongoDB
  • git for version control, with Atlassian tools such as JIRA for ticket tracking and Fisheye/Crucible for code reviews
  • Linux with CentOS and Citrix virtualization software
  • nginx web server with the uwsgi application server

Experience with any of these is helpful, but more important that any particular skill is the ability to learn quickly, figure things out on the fly, and make things happen. We are willing to train new team members as needed to fill in any gaps in experience.

In addition, because we are a small team, team members need to be able to wear many hats and fill in where needed. Everyone helps with client support, and some server administration and IT work comes up from time to time as well, so adaptability and experience in these areas is helpful as well.

About IntelliSurvey, Inc.
We’re a small, growing company. Currently we have about 115 employees, and we are planning to grow significantly over the new few years. We are funded entirely through operating cash flow, however, so we are stable and free to grow at our own pace.

We offer standard benefits such as a retirement plan with company match, health and dental insurance, stock options, and so on. Many of our employees work remotely, so our office in Mission Viejo, CA is small. But we are very flexible and focus on results rather than face time. After initial training, our development team members can have flexible work hours and some work from home arrangements as well.

People who are self-starters and can work independently will fit in well with our team.
