We're building large systems of components and functions that interact in near real time on the web and mobile platforms. Our first product will be launched in summer 2011.
Our team is made of experienced entrepreneurs with several successful startups including, MP3.com, Eventful.com, Trusonic, ASI, eBay and others.
Life at Nettle, Inc.
Our office is in the village of La Jolla and we walk to many great places for lunch and coffee and enjoy the fresh ocean breezes, great views and warm days while we code in python, js, css to deliver our mobile product offering.
We use Linux, python, Nginx, Apache, Postgres, ZeroMQ, Elasticsearch and many other open source technologies. Our primary framework is in Django, but we use the right technology for the right purpose.
We're fans of scalable, API driven solutions and the mobile environment. Your phone is the personal computer, nothing else really matters.
Large high-res displays and Aeron chairs are the norm for all employees as we want you to be as focused as possible on bringing a great product to market.
We make decisions quickly based on reasonable information so that we can move forward and learn as much as possible in the shortest period of time.
We're in this game to win a significant percentage of a large world-wide existing consumer market.
