Ask HN: Who's hiring?
154 points by mncaudill on March 24, 2010 | hide | past | favorite | 193 comments
There have been a few "who's hiring?" threads in the past and I'm curious if those hiring would be interested in adding to another. I think the last one was up almost a month and a half ago, so I'm sure the job landscape has changed over that time.

On a completely self-plugging note, as of this past Monday, my company downsized so if anyone is need of a good web developer, drop me a line!

I'd just like to post a friendly reminder before this thread fills up with a lot of posts. Please post your location, or if the job(s) in question can be done remotely, specify so - it makes things much easier.

In the spirit of making things easier, it would be great if you could also post how open you are to qualified applicants from other countries and what help you can provide, if any, with visas/citizenship.

This might seem like a fringe request, but I am sure there a quite a few awesome, available developers willing to actually relocate to a neighboring country (Canada/USA & vice versa, is pretty frequent AFAIK) to tackle an interesting opportunity.

I, for one, wouldn't mind relocating to the US (from Canada) if I liked the opportunity/challenge/team. I have no problem finding job openings for which I am qualified and interested in, but applying usually ends up being a waste of time for both parties when it is not clear whether or not it is possible.

Seriously, if you are open to it, don't keep it a secret! Help us find you! :)

Where is the app around this post? I've always thought it would be interesting to have some social network way to know about jobs via friends and previous co-workers. LinkedIn has never really done much for me and it seems you have to be more proactive there.

Every month the thread comes up, and every month I mention a website I work with my friend, http://job4dev.com

We put together a job board and a company database, so that people can see about the listings and have information about the company. Each listing page and company page works as a wiki, and can be edited to improve information about. Also, each page has a comment area in order to improve communication between job seekers, recruiters, and people who already work at the given company.

I'm pretty close to finish the section where people can build their resumes and list past experiences, education, and such. http://job4dev.com/my/resume

What else do we do? We have a twitter profile @job4dev (http://twitter.com/job4dev), custom RSS feeds, mailing lists. The fundamental features of this "app" you want are there.

All of this is free. The website is far from perfect, but our biggest problem right now is breaking the chicken-and-egg nature of a job site.

This is a side-project for now, the moment we get traction I can see myself jumping more into it to fix these smaller issues and bringing more features at a faster pace. For now I think all I'll be able to do is to use this monthly thread to do a shameless plug and tell of what's new. (Last month, for instance, we had no resume builder).

Let me know what you think. Feedback is always appreciated.

We're a social gaming startup with some pretty decent traction (http://apps.facebook.com/happyhabitat , > 500K monthly uniques) and funding. We're looking for an awesome software engineer who is or wants to work on any part of the product. Job posting here: http://jobs.zipzapplay.com/

We're looking for someone full time and on site in San Francisco, CA.

Shoot me a line if you know someone who's looking. Specific skill set/languages is less important than just a kick ass software engineer. curt [at] zipzapplay.com

Check out CareerElement.com; we will be bringing all kinds of new innovation to the job space. We will be launching in April.

We are an angel funded Stanford/Google startup.

And we are hiring: http://www.careerelement.com/index/software

Location: Palo Alto, CA

Can you tell us more about your startup? How does it work? I've always thought it would be interesting to move the word of mouth job knowledge to a software tool. I know all the jobs we have open at my company and my friends know their open jobs. Why not share these openly either anonymously or via your friend network. Show who's moving where and what they're doing now in some easy to digest format.

This looks like a great opportunity. The product management looks very interesting, but I think you might be looking for more experience. Anyway to meld some of those responsibilities with a business intern position for a very hungry new grad with a take charge attitude?

SSi Micro is hiring great hackers. Know C pretty well, be great at one high-level language (Python, PHP, whatever), be a quick learner (and we mean quick), and then come and be a propellerhead at our awesome, small company.


We're a little company based in Yellowknife, the capital city of the Northwest Territories. We deliver broadband satellite internet to 61 of the most remote communities on earth, and now that our network's up and running (although we're investing heavily in upgrading it), we're busy building great software for our customers, optimized specifically for our unique network.

Yellowknife's not as cold as you think, and the 24-hours-of-daylight summers are not to be missed.

If you're interested and game, we'll make an offer really easy to accept: We'll get and pay for your apartment, a car if you need it, and pay you atop that. We'll do all that for up to three months while you evaluate us and the north, so that it's risk- and hassle-free for you to come to a really great, unique company in an awesome little city.

Email: stephenw@ssimicro.com

What kind of internet service do you have in Yellowknife itself?

Great question. Thankfully, we have a terrestrial link from down south all the way up to the Knife, so we have decent access. I say "decent" and not "amazing" because our bandwidth isn't anything like it is in some bigger markets down south, but it's totally reasonable for most stuff I find. (There's no buffering for Youtube or most streaming video websites, Divx movies need some time to buffer, usual throughput at home is around 300 kb/s down 100 kb/s up, at the office it's a couple megabits, enough to never have to wait for anything.)

I guess this means we don't do too much dogfooding, but our lives would be a lot more difficult if we did.

RethinkDB in Mountain View, CA: looking for system and performance engineers. Interns also welcome. More details here: http://www.rethinkdb.com/jobs

Here's a quick blurb from our jobs page:

Working at RethinkDB truly involves disruptive technology and solving interesting, challenging problems. Building caching algorithms, advanced data structures, and lock-free concurrency primitives from scratch is just business as usual here.

While everyone at RethinkDB has the determination to move heaven and earth to succeed, we prefer to get stuff done quickly and go home to our families, instead of living our lives in the office. As an additional perk to our employees, we work very hard to hire only self-motivated people smarter than ourselves.

That's kind of nice that you post your salary ranges online, but do you really think you'll get quality engineers for those salaries?

Position Salary Stock Options Intern 50K - 60K, prorated N/A Engineer I 65K - 75K 0.25% - 0.75% Engineer II 80K - 90K 1.0% - 1.5% Engineer III 95K - 105K 1.75% - 2.25%

For interns, that's a great salary, but your senior engineers will probably expect 1.5 times that.

If stock options are part of the deal, my understanding is that generally the more senior your position, higher the ratio of options to salary and the bigger pay cut you are expected to take.

I'd like to see this kind of post every month, how about the first monday of every month?

A lot of hackers are looking for jobs and a lot of entrepreneurs are also hiring.

Perfect match!

- Jobs HN: We are hiring

- Jobs HN: We are available

One for entrepreneurs to post their openings.

One for hackers to post their availability and skills.

I know we already have HN jobs, but this may be an informal way for HN readers and contributors, and who knows, it may grow to be part of our community.

...and HN jobs seems to be limited to Ycomb founded startups.

I guess he's talking about post title prefixes.

Jobs HN: We are available seems like a great idea.

Mozilla is hiring! Hard core C++, webdev, IT, QA, marketing, internships, you name it.


HQ in downtown Mountain View, CA, but we have offices in Toronto, New Zealand, Paris, Tokyo and Beijing. Great benefits, extremely challenging projects (scaling web services to 350+ million users, optimizing our JS engine, making Firefox mobile fast on phones).

We're even getting telepresence robots: http://www.flickr.com/photos/seannyelite/4458404134/in/photo...

My wife bought me a Firefox laptop bag a few years ago. I've had some people mistake me for a Firefox developer and thank me for my work, so I have to correct their mistake and explain it's just my way of supporting their favorite browser too. After all that it's always been a dream of mine to work on Firefox, but I've always felt too busy and intimidated by the size of the project to contribute on my own.

Perhaps this is my chance to finally earn the ability to say, "thank you," to those people on the train.

Please don't be intimidated! You can help a little or a lot.

Check out http://www.mozilla.org/contribute/ . You can write code (websites, Firefox, and more), find bugs, offer support, localize, etc.

Hop on irc.mozilla.org and join a channel that you're interested in if you want to talk to someone.

We are. Based in Clerkenwell, London; no remote working, I'm afraid.

We're Timetric, and we're looking for Unix hackers into Python and statistics - http://timetric.com/biz/jobs/ - and we closed our seed round today (http://eu.techcrunch.com/2010/03/24/timetric-closes-seed-fun...).

Our officemates are hiring too. Picklive (http://football.picklive.com/) do real-time fantasy football, also closed a round of funding today (http://eu.techcrunch.com/2010/03/24/real-time-social-sports-...) and they're after Rails ninjas - http://football.picklive.com/jobs

We're both based in an awesome space just north of the Square Mile in London - photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/picklive/sets/72157623553354863... - and both companies have some investors in common, including Stefan Glaenzer, the former exec chairman of last.fm.

Bump is hiring iPhone developers, Android developers (exp in Android or consumer Java apps), and Data/Algorithm Eng (either exp mining data to improve QoS or background in Stats/Phys/Exp Sci/EE). More: http://bu.mp/jobs. We are also hiring interns. Feel free to email me if you have questions: jake(at)bu.mp.

About us: Bump is changing the way people interact with each other. Our technology makes it quick and easy to connect two phones, simply bump them into each other. We created the Bump app on iPhone and Android which nearly 11M people have downloaded to share contact information, photos, and compare mutual friends (seen here in an Apple commercial: http://bit.ly/8FbXGi). We have also released an API/SDK that lets anyone add bumping to their app in ~9 lines of code (http://bu.mp/api) and is used by PayPal to bump money (http://nyti.ms/bSnztr). And there is a lot more on its way. Bump is backed by Sequoia Capital, Ron Conway, and Y Combinator.

Located in Mountain View, CA near the Caltrain. Competitive salary/options/benefits.

We're launching 2-3 new substantial web projects this year, and need some great hackers to help us.

We're adding to our team at http://www.covermymeds.com. This product is about a year old and has significant revenue. Our major effort is building our API and a real-time processing system. Looking for thoughtful pros, not egos and code ninjas. Mostly Python, working with a talented team.

I know a good Python hacker in Raleigh, NC. Healthcare is big here. What about remote?

Sorry, locals or willing to move only for these positions. We do have a remote employee, but I wouldn't want to do it unless the dev started off local

Just wondering, do you attend Cohpy?

Could be wrong, but don't think anyone at Innova is involved with Cohpy. We contribute at OWASP (both corporate and time), and have been a big supporter of PHPMeetup in the past.

We'll give Cohpy a look.

Gilt Groupe in New York City is hiring. Remote working is a possibility.

We host daily sales of heavily discounted designer fashion and luxury goods, which presents a unique set of technical challenges: hundreds of thousands of customers competing for a very limited selection of inventory at the same time.

We have specific openings for interns, UI/UX designers, sysadmins, DBAs, senior QA, and platform engineers listed at gilt.com/company/careers, but we're always interested in hearing from great people regardless of the position.

We have scaled a base of Rails + Postgres using heavy caching and a services layer written in Java. A major focus in upcoming months will be individual personalization. The team is fun, dedicated, and capable.

LinkedIn is a great place for web developers (front-end) as well. In 7 years our team has only lost one due to chrun, the rest all still work here. Feel free to reach out if you are interested. http://www.linkedin.com/in/scott

What's your contact information?

You can reach me at AtomicForce@gmail.com or jhartman@linkedin.com. I joined this team: http://sna-projects.com/sna/ This team specifically has open sourced a lot and there's a lot of info there if you're interested, though obviously LinkedIn has many more openings beyond that team.

kaChing is hiring in Palo Alto, CA (on-site only). Looking for backend, frontend, and interns. We're extremely engineering-driven and have a 5-minute commit-to-production cycle. Our CEO says it well:

"[We're disrupting] the mutual fund market, a $10-Trillion industry that has seen no innovation in the past 25 years. The only way to disrupt an industry is to break with conventional wisdom, so we specifically are not looking for people with financial backgrounds. That's why we're the first company to apply an open-source philosophy to improve the process of choosing an investment manager."

By open-source philosophy he means radical transparency and pay-for-convenience; think about if any investments you have come anywhere close to this.

Are you looking for business/marketing types are just engineers?

Craigslist is hiring frontend/backend hackers in San Francisco with the following background:

machine learning (spam detection)


mysql, redis

UI / javascript

perl / some C

my mail : pablo @ "company name" . org

TripAdvisor is hiring in Newton (near Boston). We have interviews that make people either sad (because they're hard) or very, very happy (because it is fun to be challenged).

My team is working on making money using social apps in a real, sustainable way. It's way, way cool. And you get to walk around saying things like "a billion pins" and "Why don't you just tell me the name of the movie you want to see?"

ps. no remote, sorry.

Peter Norvig said that he was excited about Google because that's where the biggest data is. TripAdvisor's got a billion points of data about where people travel, and it's growing crazy fast, and it's really exciting to work with.

My team is working on one of the most JS-heavy apps I've ever seen (Gmail being the exception). I'd highly recommend tossing us a resume.

My team works in PHP or Java (though we don't care too much about particular languages, we just want you to rock). We're looking for full-timers and interns.

Toss me a resume at bkrausz AT tripadvisor DOT com, I'll be sure to pass it along to sanj if I don't want to steal you for my team ;-).

Knowmore in New York City is hiring! http://knowmore.com/

We are a 20 person startup with full funding in the social news space.

We have several positions open. In particular, I'm looking for awesome R&D hackers to work on fun problems.

For fastest service, DM me @f00biebletch or email f00biebletch@gmail.com.

Yell Labs in London, UK are hiring.

We're going to be based on Grays Inn Road just up from Chancery Lane (Central Line). Future-tense as we get the building on April 16th. No remote working initially, not closed to it permanently though.

It's a R&D lab and we are looking for quite a few people. JVM is dominant and whilst Java and Spring are likely to form the basis of any web service platform we're open to clojure, groovy and other stuff elsewhere and of course various devices mean that there will be other stuff around (for iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, TV widgets, etc).

We are really looking for talented people with a lot of potential and passion for what they do... but then I guess everyone is.

Ping a gmail to david.kitchen and I'll put you in touch with the hiring people.

Cool, really close to us! Silicon Roundabout is crawling westwards.

It's firmly on the hipster highway already. I suspect the Golden Mile is defined from Condor Cycles to Hoxton Square... so we're both at one end, and people like Songkick are at the other end.

We should all set up a permanent residence at the end of the week somewhere like the Slaughtered Lamb (neutral ground, half way betwix everyone). Would be good to really feed off each other in that way.

Sounds like a plan. Who's around here? Songkick, Timetric, Smarkets, Picklive, rjdj, Rummble, Technovated, you guys at Yell Labs, BERG, RIG/Newspaper Club, Trampoline Systems, Resolver Systems... sure there are loads I'm forgetting too.

Last.fm and Moo are right on teh roundabout, though you're probably just referring to startups.

Chapel Hill, NC: These guys are hiring. Not a bad place to work. Their product has a lot of potential to be applied in markets which it is not currently.

We have ~17 people (7 engineers) across the country, and we'll be moving our SF headquarters into a new space (Commercial & Sansome) next week.

If interested, drop me a line: mike@bizo.com

LShift in London is always looking for talents! (and interns)

http://www.lshift.net/recruitment.html http://www.lshift.net/blog

What we value above everything else is the right combination of skill, enthusiasm and imagination. Generally speaking, programming is something you either enjoy or you don't. There are people who program because they find it stimulating and intellectually challenging, and then there are those who program only because they have worked out that it pays well. The former are the ones we want to hire.

Location: Europe/London/Hoxton

Remote: no

About the above jobs:

San Francisco, CA strongly preferred but remote candidates considered. We use LAMP (PHP) + Javascript + various other tools.

Wikimedia Foundation is the organization behind Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects. The above job(s) are related to our fundraising efforts. Do you like money? We should hang out.

In general, we're always looking for people who like: free knowledge, free software, web standards, large scale deployments, usability, smart generalists, saving the world, the A-team, and working at the only top 10 website whose entire paid technical staff can fit around a couple of tables in a Chinese restaurant.

We're looking for two entry-level developers who know their stuff but need to get some professional experience on their resume. While continuing to add features to our CRM, we're also going through a big push to refactor a lot of older code in to clean, readable code.

We're located in King of Prussia, PA which isn't too far outside of Philadelphia.

[Cambridge, MA] Demiurge Studios is where I work. We're a 40-man game development shop working on some well-known titles as well as some new ones. We have some really good people, and lots of C++ work to be done. (We're also hiring designers and artists)

No remote, I don't think, but commute by public transport (Boston T) is easy.

http://www.demiurgestudios.com/?jobs Ping me if you apply.

Google is hiring all over.

When applying to Google, can you apply to specific teams, or do you get placed where they think you would be the best fit?


You can apply for specific jobs with specific teams. That does not mean you'll wind up in that job if hired. However you have a lot of say in where you eventually get placed.

I personally interviewed for a software developer position, but eventually wound up being hired as a site reliability engineer. (An SRE is sort of a cross between a sysadmin and software developer.) Pretty big shift, but not one I was unhappy about.

I've just been hired, and haven't yet been placed with a team. I believe that's typical.

Congratulations on your new position. Could you give any insight on the interview process?

It was long. The entire thing took almost two months, and about three weeks passed after my final on-site interview before I heard anything definitive, though there were a number of intermediate steps in between.

My recruiter was really helpful. He kept in touch with me throughout the process, and let me know each time I passed a milestone. I've spent the last four years in a C# shop, and most of the interviewers he found for me had some background in C#. It ended up not really mattering, since most of the whiteboard problems only required pseudocode, but I definitely appreciated the effort.

The questions were pretty much all data structure and algorithms. I wrote a lot of code on the whiteboard (or in Google Docs for my phone interview), and was asked to justify my choice of data structure, and explain what sort of dataset would make it a poor choice. Upon finishing my solution, which was usually for a very contrived problem, I was sometimes asked to figure out a real-life situation where it would be useful.

I'm happy to have made it through, and am looking forward to starting my new job, but I do wonder a little bit about the interview process. I spent the last four years shipping a number of fairly substantial desktop applications, and have also been reasonably active in the Clojure community, and neither of these came up once after my initial conversation with my recruiter.

It's possible that my resume said everything that was necessary on that subject, but it also seems possible that neither of those things mattered very much compared to my grasp of CS theory. I don't mind much one way or another, but it's a kind of funny that I can come out the other side of the process, and still not have much insight into their hiring criteria.

Anyways, hope that helps. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask, though I can't guarantee I'll be able to answer.

This is great. Thanks for spending the time to type this up! It does sound like a very involved process.

I got an email from Google's Recruiters, and went through a similar process, unfortunately I did not make it to the in person interview at the Google campus.

I did have 5 different phone interviews for three different positions. With questions ranging from software engineering, to system administrator.

I was really nervous, especially since I am just out of college and that may have led to my downfall. On my second phone interview the interviewer was hard to understand, lot of line noise, and he seemed to not understand me. I got all the different programming languages I know mixed up together into a bad psuedo code. This was my first over the phone programming questions.

My second phone interview that contained programming went really well, the interviewer had done some reading on what I was into and helped me calm down and feel at ease. I got my programming right, got what I needed down on paper (Google Docs), and thought I did pretty well.

Emailed both interviewers afterwards to thank them for their time, the guy from the second phone interview, which also happened to be my last, got back to me hoping that I would get to work together with him.

How important are the UI design skills? I can build about anything you could imagine, but, probably like most engineers, my design skills leave something to be desired.
