As a reminder, please include the location if you would need employees to work on-site.
This job has had me write compilers, learn Scala, reverse and interoperate with freaky network protocols, test chipsets, write hypervisors, extend debuggers, and crawl through the heating ducts and garbage chutes of several of the biggest web apps out there. It is a very cool gig.
And, I have news! Since last I posted this appeal, we've opened a Bay Area office. I'm hiring in NYC. I'm hiring in Chicago. And I'm hiring in SFBay.
We're looking first and foremost for people who can code and who have a deep interest in software security. I've been thrilled with the quality of people I've gotten to talk to on HN. You can't possibly waste my time. My contact info is in my profile.
I decided it was much better to build things that people want after all.
And the coding part is most often in ruby or jruby (and yes, I do try to sneak in a little clojure past Tom). You don't need to know Ruby coming in the door, but if you are a good programmer, you will pick up in no time.
Check us out.
(Ok, back to breaking things. But they tell me I should stop breaking tools in the black bag, though.)
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.
Right now, we're building a file sharing webapp. Why not just use dropbox, you ask? Well, our network is pretty unique: all our traffic is bounced off a satellite, and round-trip latency of ~600ms (which is because of the horrible limitation of the speed of light, which we are constantly working to exceed) means that we have to do things a little differently. SSi is so cool that when we won a government contract to do "time-shifted file transfers", we decided that we /could/ meet our contractual obligations with a few weeks of work/testing, but instead we're building a wicked webapp that brings the functionality to everyone on our network, not just big clients with IT departments.
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.
Looks like they're building a bridge, though. By "not as cold as you think", you mean that the spit hits the ground before it freezes?
And that bridge... What a nightmare. It's been in the works for years, tens of millions over budget, and it's become a local joke. "Yea, we'll finish that once the bridge is finished."
Also, you only have to take the ferry in the warm months--from January to mid-April you get to drive on the ice road. There's a show about it on Discovery called Ice Road Truckers (oddly, everybody here loathes the show, despite some of our locals being on it). It's pretty fun to be cruising down a shoveled track of ice on a huge frozen lake, radio blaring. Yes, there are roadsigns on the ice road. :)
(Just a Manly-Man-o'-the-North note: I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt today. We bust out the summer clothes at anything above 5C.) :)
This is pretty epic looking, isn't it:

You should email me directly - firstname.lastname@example.org. We code for the cameras and the server-side, mostly Python/C -- and there are many terabytes of data to work with. We also have an iPhone app and will support more mobile platforms in the future.
We're looking for generalist engineers who know C like the back of their hand but prefer to code in a higher level language like Python 90% of the time. You should also have experience with IP/networking or a voracious enough learning appetite to get it fast: we work with protocols a lot, and not just HTTP. Linux knowledge will come in handy too ... understanding file systems, system calls, toolchains, etc a plus.
You might work on web, iPhone, embedded camera code, and video server code all in the span of one project -- we don't like silos. Everyone here is an engineer and writes code. Our current team consists of core engineers from Xobni and DivX.
We've been too busy to write up a fancy jobs page, but there are ample sodas, salary, and equity :)
And FYI, we're funded by Mitch Kapor, David Cowan, and Aydin Senkut.
Doesn't this mean I'll receive an alert when I receive an email?
Wouldn't this be better:
"Receive alerts via email or text when something happens"
We're working on a high quality question and answer site.
Some of the tools we are using include Python, Pylons, nginx, memcached, Thrift, and git. We're using continuous deployment and EC2, so all code you write will go live to production within minutes no matter what time it is.
You can see more about our team so far here:

3) love the idea of Airbnb

We're a growing startup with 20+ full time employees. Many of us have worked at Amazon; many of us have founded startups. Our customers are app/game developers and our services are used by millions of consumers.

Come help us change the heart of commerce from the ground up. Hard problems, smart people, and the coolest office space in Brooklyn await you. Check out our development blog for a taste of what we're working on behind the scenes:
What we are looking for:
Web developer – either one person who can handle both front and back-end or one front-end developer one back-end developer. We are going to build an e-commerce site that is overlayed with additional functionality, including workflow and coordination tools; this will be a group shopping platform where the bride can act as a mini site administrator with her bridesmaids connected to her account. We are either going to use Magento as the e-commerce platform upon which we customize or we are building from scratch (we need help evaluating the risk of customizing on top of Magento given that the coordination tools are critical to our value proposition).
Front-end skills should include UX and UI experience. We would love to have someone who can help us with look and feel but are planning on having a graphic designer work with us on this if we cannot find a front-end developer who can do this too.
On the back-end, we would like to set up our website for robust analytics, inventory management, integration with an accounting system, etc. Past experience building a website end-to-end is a must; experience with e-commerce and/or social-networking platforms is a plus.

We're a Software Security Company looking for great Security Engineers. I'm the Director of Security Services at Security Innovation, so if you have any questions e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's a link to the formal job description:
Here's our "informal" job description:
Are you passionate about software security? Do you look at MD5 and RC2 with disgust? Do you find yourself reciting hexadecimal often... in little endian order? Do you find security issues everywhere you look? Do you often wonder how software security can be so broken, and why more people don't understand how SQLi, XSS, and CSRF work? Do you smile uncontrollably when you see 0x41414141 on the stack? Would you rather stay up all night, for 12 hours strait, writing a tool to automate a task than do something repetitive and boring for an hour?
If so, then I have great news for you - Security Innovation is hiring! We're looking for somebody who will fit in with our current team of extremely talented security engineers. We pay well, have great benefits, and provide a budget for annual security conferences. We have an awesome office downtown and get to travel occasionally. Enjoy the challenge of penetration testing n-Tier applications, crypto systems, and web apps from some of the largest software vendors in the world while enjoying the office lifestyle of a small, yet established, company.

• Pride in your work product: you test your work before telling us it's complete
• Passion for travel, and solving users' current pain points

This is from a friend of mine:
I recently changed jobs to a software company with a focus on utilities - OPOWER - and we're growing rapidly. I was employee 75 and we're projected to have over 150 by the end of the year. As software is our product, we need the best and smartest engineers and developers we can find. It's a very cool, casual atmosphere and a great place to work but being on the east coast, it's very hard to find the level of talent that we need.
On the off chance that you know anybody that would be willing to move to DC, please, please let them know that we're hiring.

I know it's a long shot, but I figured it's at least a good excuse to get in touch. Seriously, we need the best people we can get, and fast.
