The Tapjoy​ ​Boston story ​dates​ ​​back to July 2012 ​when Tapjoy ​secured the core ​Viximo​ team - a ​social game distribution company co-founded by Sean Lindsay, the current CTO of Tapjoy. Both Viximo and Tapjoy had been early and aggressive adopters of technology​ so the fit was natural. ​

Today, the Boston office has tripled in size, with nearly 40 employees and growing. Located in a hidden gem outside Davis Square, the Tapjoy team takes full advantage of their space - especially the outdoor courtyard. Playing lawn games and grilling, even in the winter - nothing beats an office that feels like home.

Sean​ Lindsay lead​s ​​​more than 60 talented engineers (Boston and San Francisco) in the development and delivery of one of the world's largest Ruby platforms, serving more than 500M active users.​ Sean is a veteran of 6 startups, 5 of which reached liquidity events, advisor and mentor to dozens of Boston startups, and creator of the Founder Mentors program for new entrepreneurs.

Very few companies present the unique intersection of highly innovative work in an emerging market, already operating at massive scale, alongside such a remarkable team. If you're interested in learning how to scale products into businesses, there's no better private company in Boston right now.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tapjoy.

    Interview

    There was a preliminary phone screen followed by a technical screen. Each was took the time to have a nice conversation, asking questions about me and describing the company.
