Why Work at Cinchcast and BlogTalkRadio


By Rob Blackin (VP of Engineering) and Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy (CTO)

We’re a growing team of innovators in design, product, technology and business. We’re passionate about what we are building, and we’re excited about what’s to come. We help companies better connect and communicate with the people that are most important to their business online every day. We’ve cultivated a dynamic and entrepreneurial culture for our employees that you can help shape.

Our Culture

Our work hours are flexible. We love what we do, but we also value our free time (and sleep). We offer competitive benefits and compensation + stock options. We work hard but we also like to have fun around here – our pantry’s loaded, our couches are lounge-worthy and we’re bringing back bocce ball in a big way. We’re based in New York City, but we have members of our team working from all over the world.

Toys

When a team works hard, you need a way to blow off some stream. Programmers especially need to sometimes walk away from the screen and clear their heads in order to find the solution to a tricky problem or just to celebrate getting that complex algorithm to work perfectly. It’s sort of the equivalent of a football player dancing in the end zone. Out team has developed a Foosball ranking system that we use for bragging rights. Nerf darts and Nerf Footballs are often seen flying through the air. Bocce ball and Xbox 360 sit waiting for those who want to partake and, of course, plenty of red bull.

Work with best and the brightest

We have some of the best developers you can find anywhere. We have people who routinely present at meetups, are active in the development community and are always keeping up with the latest technology. Many of our developers were CTOs and heads of development organizations in other companies before coming here. Everyone has great experience and ideas. Our white board architecture discussions by the couch are tremendously fun and intellectually stimulating. We use all the hottest technologies: .NET, NodeJS, IronRuby, MongoDB, REDIS, HTML5, and Objective-C for Iphone development. Check out our Tech bloghttp://tech.cinchcast.com to see what we work on.

Work in a high volume environment where scalability and high availability is critical

Our Blogtalkradio.com website gets millions of visitors per day. We are building an infrastructure to enable us to scale another 10x via a new service oriented architecture including a data caching layer, notification queuing and front end donut caching. Our Cinchcast business handles conference calls with more than 1000 participants. There are very few other companies in the world that can handle that volume. Recently, we were featured in VentureBeat for the work we did to scale conference calls: http://venturebeat.com/2012/11/29/cinchcast-uses-the-cloud-to-scale-up-its-self-serve-conference-calls/
