Tagged is hiring (Senior Software Developer)

(I’m sure there are other positions we need to fill, but this one I have the full description for and would make my life so much better…)

The position is a Senior Software Developer at Tagged in San Francisco. It is a profitable pre-IPO social networking service ranked in the top 100 website. We develop in PHP and Java if that’s important.

The best thing about this position is you don’t work under me. 🙂
