JOB: Front-end Engineer with UX Sensibility at SocialFeet in New York, NY is a seed-funded startup in NYC that helps online
retailers drive sales through social networks. Our beta product
(called "EchoSales") prompts people to share their purchases at

development. We require expertise in javascript, css, html, jquery,
cross-browser compatibility, etc.
