Ness is a quickly-growing company working at the intersection of mobile, social, and big data. We’re making it easier to find places, experiences, and products you’ll love, starting with restaurants.
We think that design should push technology and that technology should push design. Everyone at Ness has the chance to speak towards product strategy.
Building next generation technology that's easy to use demands tight-knit collaboration. To be successful here you’ll need to come to the table with a point of view but be willing to go another direction quickly if it’s in the best interest of our users. We’re more interested in building an amazing band than collecting a bunch of rock stars.
We highly value experimentation and taking risks. We’re not afraid to throw away work we love if it doesn’t make our products better.
We’re careful to avoid needless meetings and extra bureaucratic hoops to jump through. We keep a relatively flat hierarchy. To succeed at Ness you’ll need to be comfortable speaking up and taking initiative.
Our office is less than a mile from the nearest Caltrain stop.
You’re someone who loves technical challenges and is motivated to produce effective and elegant solutions to problems that others might describe as “impossible.” You are a self-starter who is comfortable solving new problems, but also likes to collaborate and learn from others. As a member of Ness's platform team your role will be part architect and part systems builder. We have an ambitious product and engineering roadmap and are looking for people who can develop rapidly and embrace the challenges and responsibilities and of being a critical member of a highly skilled team.
Ness is looking for an eager, fast-learning iOS developer with a passion for creating software that delights users. We’re looking for someone who wants to help push the platform to its limits, with implementation approaches beyond even Apple’s first-party apps.
You are someone who shares our love of beautifully designed, immersive products. You are detail-oriented, believe the little things matter, and won't consider a task complete until everything is just right. These qualities are more important than experience, but practice implementing user interfaces and iOS applications is a plus. An ideal candidate will know Objective-C and Cocoa Touch well, but is always ready to learn more.
Ness is looking for a web developer with a passion for creating software that delights users. We are seeking someone to help us bring our signature iOS experience to the mobile and desktop web.
You are someone who shares our love of beautifully designed, immersive products. You are detail-oriented, believe the little things matter, and won't consider a task complete until everything is just right. You've forgotten more about the DOM than most people ever know and you can justify your burning hatred for older versions of IE.
We are world-class, machine learning specialists who work together on real-world challenges. Everyone on our team takes ownership of problem-solving, from ideas all the way through implementation. Our favorite types of problems are the ones that others consider impossible.
Everything the ML team builds is product-driven to solve a specific customer pain. While we are looking for people who are experts in a specific area, we believe that the best solutions come from collaboration. We expect people to apply their expertise to domains they have not previously worked in.
We use principled machine learning approaches, and encode product-level intuition and needs, but are comfortable with using heuristics to get the last mile.
Ness is hiring product designers to help prototype and define the Ness user experience across a variety of platforms. The design challenges you will face are complex. You will be pushing the boundaries of predictive software. You will collaborate with an interdisciplinary product team, your wide breadth of knowledge and personal interests will increase the likelihood of coming up with unexpected solutions.
Specific background expertise in print, web or mobile is less important than a deep interest in the way people choose and use products, creativity, a keen sense of aesthetics, and a strong grasp of visual communication. You’ll work with a high degree of autonomy and will have ownership over large parts of the product, but you should always be receptive to user feedback.
You’ll shape the future of Ness into something that’s intuitive, serendipitous, and magical.
Ness Computing is looking for an engineer to design and implement our operations environment. We believe in the DevOps movement, so you will work closely with our engineers who build the Ness application and platform. Your responsibility will be to design, build and maintain the system-level environment (operating systems & networking infrastructure) that enables the Ness application platform to grow and scale, and the IT infrastructure that enables the Ness team to work.
As part of the Ness engineering team, you will design, build, and maintain the automation that allows a small team to manage a large number of systems. You will seek to automate as much of the day-to-day operations of a large-scale platform as possible in order to proactively develop technology tools that enhances the Ness product. You are not interested in changing files on hundreds of machines by hand but always use automation tools that do that for you.
