Who We Are
RecordSetter is an interactive media company built on a belief that everyone can be world's best at something. Our flagship property, RecordSetter.com, allows users to create world records, document them on video and upload them for others to view or challenge. The site has over 340,000 users from 109+ countries and 77,000 world record videos. The Next Web call us "this generation's Guinness World Records."
Our team of Yellow Jacket officials adjudicate world records around the globe, appearing regularly on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and seen on CNN, VH1, CBS Sunday Morning and The Ricki Lake Show. We've published a book, The RecordSetter Book of World Records, and brought our award-winning "RecordSetter LIVE!" variety show to New York, San Francisco, Austin, Toronto and Los Angeles.
Our headquarters are in Las Vegas, where we're part of a noted initiative called the Downtown Project. We also have an office in Los Angeles for television and original content development.
Why Join Us
Our core belief is that everyone can be a champion. That's how we’re manage our company, too. From interns to developers, everyone on the RecordSetter team is encouraged bring their thoughts to the table. Fresh ideas are always welcome. Big egos are not. We’re looking for the best and brightest to help us succeed.
Though we work extremely hard, fun is a big part of our spirit. Yes, there will be late nights, but there will also be parties, team adventures, guest speakers, and cold beers in the fridge. Our goal is to build a work culture respected for its balance of productivity and enjoyment.
We're looking for a full time, product-minded engineer to join our team in Downtown Las Vegas.
Here are some examples of the kinds of problems we need to work on in the near future. You’d take a lead role in figuring out how to tackle these challenges:

- Design and implementation of a community moderation system
- Integration of editorial components across the site
- Development of a interactive submission form to be used at RecordSetter LIVE! events
Candidate will work day-to-day with our CTO and (NJ-based) back-end developer, building features in a creative, dynamic, agile, iterative environment.

No phone calls, please. Position is based in Downtown Las Vegas, where the tech scene is currently exploding (see Downtown Project). If you're the right person, we'll help you move here. Bonus points if you set an awesome world record and submit it to our site. Kaboom!
RecordSetter is poised squarely at the intersection of digital media, publishing, pop culture and entertainment. We're looking for superstar interns to come join our young, energetic team and help us create a media company of the future.
"Being able to intern at RecordSetter my last semester was a fantastic opportunity. I am grateful to Dan Rollman for giving me the chance to work on the Book of World Records. I learned so many things, not just with Team Book but also got a front seat to see how the website and company was run as well. Now that I've graduated, I'm excited to find another opportunity where I get to take all the skills that I learned at Recordsetter and turn them into a job."
