Ask HN: Who is Hiring?
158 points by mschaecher on June 17, 2010 | hide | past | favorite | 174 comments
It has been a few months since one of these got attention.

Let's try and preface each submission with city or country info, ie SF, NYC, etc.

San Francisco. New York. Chicago.


Job title: Bearer of Bad Tidings.

Downside first: not getting to build something that people want. In fact, having to build things that people explicitly don't want. And having to do it with me. Ask other HN'ers I've hired if I'm kidding about that last sentence.

But, oh, the upside: Runtimes. Linkers. Kernel code. WinAPI, POSIX, Mach. Messaging systems. iPhone apps. Chipsets. Ajax. Javascript parsers. C. FFIs to C in your favorite language. Ruby. Scala. Lisp. Encryption. Electronic markets. Firmware. Reverse engineering. Middleware. Crawling around in the ventilation ducts of the world's most popular and important applications.

Are you an HN regular? You can't possibly waste my time with questions. We love smart people who can code who want to learn software security.

Contact info's in my profile.

Another "who's hiring" thread, another shameless plug: please, if you are posting here about your startup, or if you have a job listing, please take a look at http://job4dev.com/jobs/new. It's completely free to create a listing, and your company gets a page much like crunchbase, but focused on information relevant for job seekers.

If you are looking for jobs, you can browse at http://job4dev.com/jobs. You can filter listings by position, by tags, look for contract jobs only, telecommuting, etc. We just started scraping some of the most interesting job boards out there (e.g: 37signals, Stackoverflow, Ars Jobs), so we have a good number of jobs too.

We are doing a good job at making information easily available. What we need now is to have more users (job seekers as well as job recruiters) checking the website.

(EDIT: downmodders, could you please explain what you have against me talking about a website that is completely related to the thread?)

(EDIT 2: Appsaurus just put their listings over there. http://job4dev.com/company/hello-chair-inc. Thanks, guys!)

The downmodders are concerned because your post is an ad. Related to the thread? Yes. But I see google ads all day that are related to content I'm looking at, and that doesn't necessarily mean I am happy about it.

Maybe a "Review my site" thread would be more appropriate.

I'm voting you up, though I'm not sure I agree with comparing an automated advertising system with a person that is just trying to engage in a conversation.

Anyways, we've done the "review my site" quite a while ago (http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1075533), and got some useful feedback, though most of it was "color of the bike shed" discussion. I think that what the site needs the most now is breaking out of the chicken-and-egg problem.

(Still amazed how people are voting it down like I'm a scammer. I'm putting everything for free, and this is not even a "startup", just a side-project. If people took a look at the site, it would be a win-win. By shutting me off, it's a lose-lose. Go figure.)

Good website. But not every company shows how to apply. :(

I'm not looking for a job but I love these threads because I get a nice quick rundown of what other startups are doing and where, and a nice blurb about their team and environment. It helps me feel closer to the other entrepreneurs on HN, like if I ever ran into one of them I'd already have an extra little connection.

Same! We're not hiring yet but I'll definitely use HN to find our next developer! I'm also surprised at how many NYC startups are here :)

Interesting! I am in Springfield,MO. I am not looking for a job, but how can I keep up with what your startup is doing? Could you send me info on what your company is about? Thanks!

Sure! You can check us out at http://getmochi.com. Currently it's a basic basic splash page with a blog but we'll be updating it slowly as we build out and release :)

There aren't nearly enough startups here in Kansas City. At least, not the kind that hang out on Hacker News.

There are a few around here. Did you check out Startup Weekend in April? That's where I got started on my current startup.

I'll be moving out to Kansas City next month and would love to work at a startup. Do you know of any that are hiring?

I've heard this is a great company to work for from friends. My fiance and I also order from them constantly, so the offering is compelling.

Sidenote I sent in an app for product manager and was never called back ;(

Glad you like our stuff; sorry you never got a callback! Our HR department was very disorganized for a while -- it should be a lot better now.

I'm sure it cost us a number of excellent people.

i spent time here as developer. it was, hands down, the worst development and work experience of my life.

Looking for scalability engineers for our google maps style mapping engine. Our company has been collecting polygon data representing wireless coverage patterns worldwide for twenty years. Lots of data. We're scaling out our map generation engine and improving our global geocoder to satiate growing demand industry wide for this kind of data.

We'd consider remote opportunities if you're awesome. Experience with Hadoop, Pig, and HBase is desired but not required. Also helps if you can bust out some C from time to time.

Atlassian - Sydney, San Francisco, Amsterdam. We are looking at hiring a bunch of product, engineering and support roles so swing over to http://www.atlassian.com/32 and checkout our openings.

Seriously, you'll love this company as much as I do - relaxed working environment, comfortable chairs, enthusiastic staff, interesting problems, no requisition forms for resources, founders you can have a beer with and customers that love your products - what more could an engineer or product manager ask for?

We have a "hire-a-mate" program where we give you $2k for referring a new employee that passes their probation period - its pretty sweet.


We are 100% privately owned and the future looks very bright.

Are there separate jobs pages for openings outside of Sydney? Or are all the jobs listed at the link you've posted open in all three locations?

Restaurant.com is hiring a Senior Software Engineer (Primarily .Net) and a Senior Database Administrator (SQL Server 2005/2008). We are a .com and PROFITABLE, employ 175 people, and represent about 15,000 restaurants. We are growing like crazy and in need of some really good developers with a broad spectrum of skills (TSQL to Code to UI) who can hit the ground running. We move very quickly here with a minimum of bureaucracy...good place to work if you don't mind the pace.

Main Job Postings (But Not Comprehensive. You can post your resume here anyway or email it to jobs@restaurant.com) http://www.careerbuilder.com/Jobs/Company/C8D2BZ6VY90T51SPJD...

Couple of notes:

- If you apply as Senior Level make sure you are truly Senior. Too many applicants present themselves as expert but really aren't even close. We are willing to hire a mid-level developer so just present yourself as such.

- If you aren't passionate about development you won't like it here.

- If you are coming from a large corporate environment be sure you can handle less bureaucratic structure. Job roles are fluid and you are expected to step in when you are needed. If you have ever said,"That is not in my job description." you might not be a good fit.

( If you can't tell I don't work for HR :) ).

In all seriousness if you live in the area and are at all interested please contact me directly if you have any questions. I am not an HR person (Sr. Software Engineer) so you won't get any varnish from me.

Job Titles: Web Application Developer and Data Product Developer

We're looking for smart programmers for two types of positions to work on and with our application. Our core system, which is a distributed analytics engine, is built in a functional language with strong list processing capabilities and heritage (K, which has come up on HN a couple times) and our front-end is web-based rich application built with JS. We particularly want people who have an interest in functional languages and web apps.

The web position is very heavy on JS, so we're looking for someone who deeply understands "the good parts" and knows how to negotiate the bad parts (we have clients who use some older browsers).

The data position involves both writing code and doing analysis on data using our system, which is the fastest out there (i.e. we can process queries on billions of records in seconds), so it's pretty exciting. We're looking for swiss-army programmers for these positions.

If you're interested, email jobs at 1010data dot com and mention this post.

Are you having a hard time finding a job? Have ideas for how to make job search better? That is exactly the problem that Simply Hired is trying to solve.

We are looking for outstanding PMs and ninja developers to take our product to the next level.

If you like In-N-Out, they are located 2 minutes away. And to work off that animal-style cheeseburger and vanilla shake, we offer subsidized gym memberships to an amazing gym (2 minutes away--but in the other direction from In-N-Out).

Take a look at current openings: http://jobvite.com/m?3isAWfw0

We also hire beyond our official list of openings. Tweet us a haiku (@simplyhired) for why you want to work for Simply Hired if there isn't an official opening, but you would love to apply.

Bloomberg definitely is hiring all over the world. But if you like working around Princeton, NJ and if you got Python and Oracle skillz, there's one team that could definitely use you:


The full list: http://careers.bloomberg.com/hire/experiencesearch.html Filter to R&D. We are mainly hiring in NY, NJ and London. It's a great place to work. Regardless of the problem domain you prefer, there is something interesting to do.

Good point, was a bit selfish on my part, I'll admit :). Good place to work, agreed.

San Francisco, CA

Metamoki.com https://www.jobscore.com/jobs/metamoki/gamesoftwareengineer/...

We're hiring (two) generalist software engineers who love to work on games.

We're self-funded (think Valve)... so no VCs or Boards to force the wrong incentives (like hire too many people too quickly or subsequent layoffs). We believe in work-life balance (leave at 5-6pm) yet our team accomplishes monumental projects in short timespans (minimal overhead = maximal productivity). If you want to build fun projects without bureaucracy, this is the place to be.

We run lean, employ various Agile techniques, and utilize continuous deployment. No telecommuters please.

HNers can email me at van@metamoki.com for referral (and cut in line) or for more information.

San Francisco, CA

Square (https://squareup.com/jobs)

We're hiring for server engineering (ruby and javascript), site operations (unix, puppet and building out our datacenter), design (visual and ux) and support folks.

I'm on the server team, so I'll talk about that position. We're doing agile in a pretty serious way and using it to solve really interesting financial problems. We pair program almost 100% of the time, TDD always, and use Pivotal Tracker to schedule our iterations. We're using Rails, Resque, Cucumber, Rspec and Jasmine. The server team is tight knit and really a lot of fun.

We're looking for pragmatic software engineers to join us. Preferably people with Ruby experience. You must be excited about TDD and pairing. The mohawk thing on the job site is totally optional.

Recent projects of ours have included building a forecasting tool for our brand-new video ad marketplace product and scaling our data processing and analytics system to handle millions of events per day. http://adap.tv/about/careers/SoftwareEngineer.html

Sarasota, FL - But definitely not my company. Even though we are hiring, I was reprimanded last time I posted to a Who Is Hiring thread. However, if you are in this near-paradise of white sandy beaches (no oil!), and need work, reply and we'll figure something out.

You got reprimanded for trying to find good talent? Sounds like a great place to work...

We're hiring like crazy, especially DB people: http://tbe.taleo.net/NA1/ats/careers/searchResults.jsp?org=G...

It's been great here... there are about 120+ people working here in Emeryville, 200 worldwide. The company is now a part of Sony, but Sony is very hands off. It still feels like a growing startup and things are still very 'loose' (in a good way). Motivated people will have no problem finding interesting extra things to do.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you want any more details: greg7gkb at gmail daught com

Thanks! -Greg

Citrix Online - makers of GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, GoToMyPC and more, is hiring.

Close to three dozen open positions in the US (Santa Barbara and San Francisco CA, and NJ), Bangalore and Dresden in Engineering, from Software Engineers (C++ and Java) to QA to User Experience to Linux System Admins to Database Engineers.


If interested, you can feel free to apply at the URL above - also send me an email at the address in my profile so I can give you my name to put down as a referral.

I can say that GoToWebinar is not the best product. I've used it about 4 times to attend a webinar and there usually is some problem or another (Degraded audio, no audio, getting disconnected.) The organizers of that specific webinar also expressed their dissatisfaction with GoToWebinar.

It would be better to report problems to Citrix rather than in this thread where they are completely off topic.

I think this is very relevant: I would personally avoid applying for a position in a company with a very problematic product.
