The Carrot Blog

We're sending out a call for developers. And this isn't some mamby-pamby "after a month of fooling around we'll maybe get back to you" kind of call...this is a "we are going to hire you within two weeks" type of deal.

Sick of slugging away at your job? Want to work with fun people, a french bulldog and a voice-activated R2D2? How about tackling brands like Disney, Ford and the NFL? Come join a tech team of hilarious, wicked smart people.
