So if you’ve never heard of Stack Exchange, and I won’t hold it against you, I haven’t either. Although after reading the philosophy and history, I’m intrigued. For you Sales Executives out there, it goes a little something like this. They think you should work in the best environment, with the smartest people, doing challenging and different things every day. You’ll be happiest if you receive stock options, free lunches, and top-notch benefits, so they’ll give you those things too. In fact, they’ll give you whatever you need to get your job done.
Stack Exchange is a group of people who are trying to make the internet a better place. They are building an incredible team and work hard to make sure every new hire is the best fit possible.
Wow, but that of course is the hardest part with all of these hip companies, fitting in. If you can dazzle them with your talent, passion and potential, you’ll get to work with some of the smartest and friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
The Stack Exchange Mission
Their mission is simple: “Make the Internet a better place to get expert answers to your questions.” They’ve already done that for programming questions (with Stack Overflow), but there are a million other fields that need a similar community. They’ve already got amazing sites for programmers, system administrators, gamers, photographers and tons of others. They even help people find amazing new jobs, backed by the credibility that they’ve built on the system.
It started with Stack Overflow for programming-related questions and answers, and now we’ve expanded to more than 100 expert sites focused on topics like cooking, photography, and the English language. They’re consistently one of the Internet’s top 50 most trafficked sites, and we’re just getting started. Stack Exchange employs a smart group of self-starters who are just launching their careers, and seasoned pros who recognize the mutual benefit of working at a growing, thriving tech company.
Stack Overflow Careers matches great programmers on Stack Overflow with great jobs. Programmers create profiles highlighting their work on Stack Overflow, which gives employers an in-depth look at their expertise. Employers search for programmers by location, objective, and skills, and screen them based on peer-reviewed work.
