Coupa Is Hiring

with 6 comments

I’m pleased to report Coupa is hiring additional personnel.

The pitch is something like this: Do you believe open source is the future of enterprise software? Are you ready for a challenge? If so, maybe joining an early-stage start-up like Coupa should be your next big move.

We currently have openings in Sales and in Development. Drop me a line if you’re interested.

  1. What kind of developers are you looking for?

  2. Well, given that Dave has already stated they are using Ruby on Rails as their development platform in:
    my guess is they want top notch Ruby on Rails developers with an understanding of Procurement Applications. Am I right, Dave?

    P.S. I think they are Mac fanatics as well. ;-)

  3. There are a few development profiles that are especially interesting to us
    1) Generalist Practitioner – great OO coding skills, interest in the latest componentry, “get it done” oriented, with a competence in being able to conceptualize functionality and see things from the customer’s point of view
    2) Specialist Freak – server-oriented process automation hacker who revels in the elimination of anything manual. Having a faux name like “See Dollar” probably places you in this camp :)

    We don’t require prior Ruby or Ruby on Rails experience – we’re more about what you’ve done and who you are. Just to be clear we are looking for “do’ers” not managers.

    For sales, again there are a few different profiles that interest us. But I won’t bore you with the details – if you find you’re interested, drop us a line.

  5. The game has just begun and already the street is taking about shorting!

  6. To anonymous – I think commercial open source has drawn short interest since it first began! People don’t believe it’s possible b/c it represents too much change from the status quo. No doubt (no pun intended) there will be ups and downs.

    To Abhinav – We’re based in Foster City, CA & our strong preference is local. But you should still shoot us your resume.
