Do you dream in markup? As soon as you finish a project, do you step back and think, 'Now, how can I make this better?' We've been waiting for you.

LinkedIn is looking for smart, sociable and responsible web developers who are eager to tackle the challenges of a rapidly growing web application with tens of millions of daily visitors. We want to hire dedicated and conscientious people to build rich, dynamic client-side interfaces using Javascript, while leveraging new technologies like HTML5 and CSS3, and server-side technologies like Scala, Dust and Play..

Check out our Linkedin Labs page which showcases products built on what we call 'inDay' each month. inDay is an innovation day where LinkedIn employees have no meetings and are encouraged to work on something not already on the roadmap to keep creative juices flowing.
