Want to use cutting-edge web techniques and technologies to work on sites that millions of people will see and use every day? Come do it at Six Apart, where we care passionately about making the web better.

At Six Apart, our developers create the award-winning blogging software and services Movable Type, TypePad and Vox, and our Services team puts those tools to work powering some of the best, most influential, sites on the web. As part of our Services team (formerly Apperceptive) your work will be split between building on Movable Type, Typepad, and custom web app development. And you'll work in a seriously cool office in New York City where your coworkers have four-digit, or even three-digit MeFi user numbers.

You'll build sites your mom has heard of, sites your friends use every day, and sites that are helping invent or reinvent the way media works. Our clients include AMC TV, Gothamist, NBC, the Washington Post, Serious Eats and dozens more top media/Internet names.

We build those sites using development practices that honor our love of both great code and great design. Our primary development languages are Perl and PHP, with some Python in the mix as well. In this role, you'll be responsible for designing and implementing application functionality, implementing and maintaining back-end Perl code, and analyzing and improving web site performance. The services team works closely with clients and colleagues in product management to design, create and deploy create innovative applications.

You'll be part of an vibrant, international company with a strong financial foundation and excellent benefits. We have the energy of a Web 2.0 startup and the discipline and business model of an established, mature company. At Six Apart, we believe that a workplace should be challenging, rewarding, fun, and diverse, and if you share that vision, you should be coding with us.
