Let's be honest, you're here, so I'm assuming you already know INSIDE. But here's a recap for you --

INSIDE.COM provides executive summaries of the news you need, delivered to your inbox daily. Our audience consists of over 310,000 entrepreneurs and executives who read our newsletters daily.

You're probably asking yourself, "Why does a newsletter need full-stack devs?"

Great question!

Well, we're building something that adds a little AI magic to our company. The MVP we have is looking good, but we want to bring on some full-stack devs to help us get to that next level - to build something truly amazing that, as cliche of a line as possible, has the opportunity to really disrupt and change news and information-consuming habits.

I know that's vague, but if we get to the interview part, I'll show you what we have cooking....


As a Full-Stack Developer at INSIDE.COM, you will play a key role in developing, optimizing, designing, and maintaining our web applications. You'll work closely with our President (Alex Medick) and CEO (Jason Calacanis) to deliver high-quality products for our fast-growing audience.

With your application, don’t worry about a fancy cover letter. Quite frankly, I won't read it… Instead, write me out a short origin story and some bullet points of some work you’ve shipped, including at least one URL (a personal portfolio website works if you don’t have a side project or can’t share work you’ve done for an employer).

You can also email me the above: alex @ inside . com
