Ask HN: Who's Hiring?

I think the last time this came up we agreed on the 1st tuesday of every month - so here we are!

I'm specifically interested in Python jobs in London, but as always, everything is welcome.


Bloomberg LP is hiring (and we have a big office in London) though I'm skeptical we might have anything specifically for Python. Not to worry though, we offer extensive training.


(However, if you feel like moving to the States in Princeton, NJ, then we have a Python position open on my team :) ).

I just took a look at the job listings. There is some really interesting sounding work there.

Not sure I'm ready to leave Montana yet...

If I didn't have ten months remaining on a tenancy agreement, I would apply in a second ;)

Anything open for Erlang? I'm already living in NJ :)

Mountain View, CA.

RethinkDB (rethinkdb.com/jobs)

We're building a database for solid state drives, and are working on hard core technology - a highly asynchronous, high throughput system, with concurrency control algorithms, garbage collection, and lots of other neat components you won't get to build anywhere else.


SocialSci is hiring two science minded RoR devs to help bring academic research online.

We save researchers time and money by bringing their scientific surveys (drag/drop, pdf upload, and visual response) online. We have developed a full suite of scientific tools and linked them to an anonymous, honest, and payable group of participants.

The team is currently 5 strong (3 dev, 1 biz/scientist, 1 academic sales), but we want to bump it up to 7.

Recently seed funded (we can pay you actual money / equity), graduated Tech Stars Boston, and now work out of Dog Patch Labs (Cambridge).

If interested, shoot me an email at leon@socialsci.com


Cambridge, MA

While I'm but a summer intern, the company I'm working at is a great place, and they're hiring.

There's openings in everything from worrying about L2 cache hits in your c++ code to UX wireframing or SEO. Flex, XQuery, Java, C++, and there's even some Haskell around a bit. Come join the fun times!
