Hiring Build the next generation of toys!  Were looking for an iOS Developer and a Web Developer

Interested in building the next generation of toys on digital devices such as the iPad? That’s what we’re doing here at Launchpad Toys with apps like Toontastic (Named one of the “Top 10 iPad Apps of 2011” by the New York Times and was recently added to the iTunes Hall of Fame) and an awesome suite of others we have under development. We’re looking for creative and playful coders that have made games or highly visual apps/sites in the past for our two open development positions. As a kid, you probably played with Legos endlessly and grew up to be a hacker because you still love building things. Sounds like you? Email us at howdy@launchpadtoys.com with a couple links to some projects and code that we can look at along with your resume. Be prepared to present/defend a dissertation on your favorite ice cream flavor. And just a little info on us… we’re a Y Combinator backed and well funded startup with revenue and a team of five already in place. Our SOMA SF office is a one block walk from the Civic Center BART stop.
