Web Developer/Designer

Los Angeles, USA

Kippo is a fully immersive virtual playground for people to interact through their digital identities. Once upon a time, people met through events, parties, and through friends. We are bringing this idea of social dating to the internet. Kippo is the ultimate way to hang out with friends and meet new people. Kippo is the future of online dating

Kippo is a high performing, lean, well-funded team of engineers and designers (no "business" people here). We are all 1 person departments and looking for team members who can operate at the same level.

We are open and honest about everything at the company and we never fluff anything. Startups are rough and the hours are long but we love going to work everyday because we love what we do and are excited to see our creation out in the world. We want you to thrive at Kippo and wake up every day excited to be part of this project.

We are passionate about video games, music, fashion, and pop culture, and these passions manifest themselves in the world we are creating at Kippo.

We are looking for a talented and self-motivated Web Developer/Designer. Join a lean team of engineers, designers, and hackers on an exciting new venture.
