Mobile devices are the fastest growing technology ever – worldwide, more people have mobile devices than electricity or running water. Amplitude’s mission is to educate mobile app developers about their users, so they can make informed decisions and produce the best apps. We analyze billions of rows of data and provide answers to questions in real-time. We are constantly testing new ways to efficiently house terabytes of data and creating algorithms to explore it faster.

We are looking for smart and hardworking developers to join our team in downtown San Francisco. You will be learning from and working directly with our founders, who are MIT 2010 and previous winners of Battlecode. Unlike at other tech companies, your work will actually have an impact and drive the company forward as you will wear many different hats and develop all parts of the infrastructure. Your growth and acquired skills will allow you to lead your own successful company. Our only requirements are that you work well in a team, be self-driven, and learn quickly on the job – think of this as real-world Battlecode except now you’re getting paid and have great benefits and perks!
