Video Startup Vine Looking to Expand its Team

This app has been launched very recently, not even a month ago and provides users a platform where they can get really short videos of like five to six seconds recorded and shared on any social network.

The startup’s cofounder Colin Kroll has recently tweeted a few vacant posts in the company for its engineering team.

“Vine is expanding our 3 person engineering team in NYC. Join

Having three men currently, the team is now looking for six more employees. One among the positions available is that of an android developer. This is a sign that the app will soon be found on the platform at Google.

The app had in fact faced a few hassles since its launching, mainly because of the existence of porn. After having its search terms regulated and the access of users to its Porn Vines cut down, Twitter had agreed to provide the app a rating of 17+.

This was a soothing experience for the startup company which had for the similar reason been rejected by the Apple from its featured section. Moreover this is not the only app that has been rejected by the Giant which was known for being strict with its accepted apps.

With the porn issue being a thing of the past, the startup now sees a bright future ahead of it. This we can see from the fact that the team has been looking forward to get itself expanded.

The positions vacant here are that of a software engineer, a software engineer front end, a product designer, a lead iOS engineer, a lead Android Engineer and a Dev Ops Engineer.

The company also has plans of expanding its office in New York.

“We’re building more than just products here at Vine.
