Chartboost was founded by early employees from the company behind Tap Tap Revenge (acquired by Disney) and our employees come from several leading companies, including Google and Microsoft. We have raised $21M from Sequoia Capital and other investors. We are on fire.

We are passionate in everything we do - we work hard, and give everything we’ve got to make our users love us. We are proud of the product we've built and appreciate the impact it has on other people's businesses and lives. We want to be surrounded by people who are always finding opportunities to try something new and grow. We love data and anything that helps drive intelligent decisions. We are product driven. We care about design, our users and their overall experience.  Sound like a fit? Come join us, dream big, and be part of the team that will change the future of mobile gaming.

About The Job:

  • Build the face of our company: sculpt a beautiful dashboard that’s chock-full of useful features while being simple, elegant, and intuitive
  • Constantly innovate and improve our products, learning from customers and building an experience that we are proud of.  We want you to have a huge sense of ownership over that.


  • More than 2 years of experience and fluent in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS and have built web apps that sing -- where everything works harmoniously together and the UI is performant.
  • Ability to go off-book in JavaScript. You don’t just know jQuery. You’ve used Backbone, Angular, or Ember. You know what Require.js is and understand that to do great things, sometimes you have to invest the time to write JavaScript code the right way, not the easy way.
  • Experience writing code in an MVC environment with complex moving parts. We are a small agile team and we’ll need you to understand design constraints, be able to read server side code and, if absolutely necessary, contribute some in a pinch.
  • Disciplined, accountable and a team player. We are a fast-moving startup that grows our product footprint every day. We need you to work efficiently, prioritize, context switch and work well in a team that likes working with you.

Bonus Points:

  • You’ve built a rich-ui, ajax-y, browser based dashboard before - preferably one that other industry folks have oohed-and-ahhed over.
  • You have an eye for design. You are interested in visual and/or interaction design, and maybe have even performed one of these roles in the past.
  • You like side projects and experimenting. We love surprises.


  • The opportunity to help build a company with the founding team.
  • Stock Options - you will have a stake in the future success of Chartboost.
  • Awesome office space in the heart of SOMA.
  • 20 days of PTO and 10 holidays per year, including your birthday!
  • Comprehensive medical, dental and vision insurance options.
  • Free breakfast on Mondays, free lunch on Tuesdays and free dinner every evening.
  • Commuter Program and 401k savings plan.
  • Paid company-wide getaways and retreats.
