Senior Server Application Engineer (San Francisco)
Affected by the dot.com up - down mania? Feeling angst as a result?
Let us assuage your existential angst. Fluid, Inc. is an established, rock solid Internet design + development firm. We've been doing the Internet thing since the days when "dot coms" didn't exist and the projects were done by super talented visionaries working surreptitiously in hotbeds (otherwise known as garages, basements, and scrappy, real, live work spaces). Maintaining that vision and feel, we have been around the block more than a few times to sustain a profitable, challenging and supportive environment; one where the projects and attention to client work rivals the attention we give in supporting the lives of our employees.
Here's the dry corporate speak:
