There hasn't been a jobs thread in a little while. What are you looking for and where are you?

Edit: Only one entry so far from outside the US. Any others?

Chicago, IL

New York, NY

Saratoga, CA

Can't decide which startup you'd like to go work for? How about all of them? Social rosary shopping may be in this week. Online klezmer lessons may be all the rage tomorrow. The Foursquare of fight clubs is sure to be around the corner. Don't try to predict fashion. Consider instead pestilence, which never goes out of style.

Matasano does software security for companies large and small. We get quality time with things ranging from the world's most high-impact Rails and Python apps to the firmware on storage cards, in areas ranging from the financial markets to online greeting cards.

You can be a human cowpox vaccine, parachuting in to make app developers slightly ill for a few weeks now to avoid uh dying later. It's a dirty job, but a fun one: everyone codes, all the time, in languages ranging from Ruby to Clojure to ARM assembly.

We're looking for people who can code, with a passionate interest in how technology works under the hood, the lower-level the better. C/C++ fluency gets our attention quickly, as does any real-world experience with application security, but if you can code, you really can't waste my time; we love working with people from Hacker News.

My contact info is in my profile.

I did some work in Thomas' Chicago office with them this summer. If I were looking for a day job, I wouldn't be looking for a day job any more: they're friendly, happy people who get social license to join the Dark Side, do smart stuff all day, and then go home while it is still light out.

I'm not hiring, but I figure that this a reasonable opportunity to plug my site.


The focus is on entry level jobs, but the content consists of company profiles, so it's useful to pretty much anyone looking for a job.

Here are all of the companies that we've featured with positions in Web Development: http://www.onedayonejob.com/entry-level-jobs/web-development...

And in Software Development (lots of overlap): http://www.onedayonejob.com/entry-level-jobs/software-develo...

Tons of non-technical stuff too.

Hey Willy, thanks for covering our internship posting last time. We're now looking for a full-time developer. College graduates are ok, we're willing to train for the right person.

Mountain View, CA

RethinkDB (rethinkdb.com/jobs)

Hard systems problems. Fun people. Good pay. A chance to build something meaningful and own a significant chunk of the company.

Tired of rails-based clones? Join us, together we will rule the [database] universe.

We're a 60-person financial-software firm in London, England committed to learning and improvement as well as great web software and agile development. We're hiring developers and other smart folks of many kinds. See http://www.youdevise.com/careers and https://dev.youdevise.com.

No remote working, but we do help the right people move to London. (I made an offer to such a person just today - he found us through Hacker News!)

Mountain View, CA (walking distance from CalTrain)

Bump Technologies

We make phones a better tool for interacting with other people in the real world. The Bump app is one of the most popular mobile apps with >13M iPhone and >2M Android downloads, and our API is used by >100 iPhone apps including PayPal's. Our team (so far) is 14 people and we are backed by YC, Sequoia, and Ron Conway.

We are most looking for an Android lead, but are always interested in great iPhone and backend people as well. Full job descriptions and application instructions are at http://bu.mp/jobs (mention HN if submitting). Feel free to email me with questions: jake (at) bu (dot) mp.

As always, please be sure to include your location and whether or not telecommuting is possible.

Atlanta, GA


We are bringing real estate into the future. Out platform includes a custom geospatial database, a crowd-sourced neighborhood boundary system, virtual tour platform, syndication engine, property search, and a mobile/location platform (like Foursquare) but specifically for real estate. We also power the online real estate section for small newspapers.

We are a small but great team always looking for engineers to join the team. Almost everything we do touches PHP, Ruby/Rails, Postgres/PostGIS, Mobile (HTML5 and Cocoa) and Javascript. We also need UX help. Of course there's much more, but that's the bulk of it.

If you love hacking, learning, and getting things done that real people use, and particularly if you think real estate needs a makeover, contact us!

We're also on the lookout for a strong marketing type to grow our pipeline.

+1 for Alan and his team. worked with them in the past.

I'm a YCombinator/Google alum currently working at a quantitative hedge fund in Greenwich, CT. We do a lot of cool, challenging Python work and are looking to hire great Python programmers. We basically build all the infrastructure and tools for trading/research. The job is a nice blend of math+programming and you get to work side by side with researchers and portfolio managers. Email me at petgra7@gmail.com if you're interested!

Memphis, TN

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.

At this point for a full time position relocation would be required but I'm looking for contractors I can lean on when needed as well. Experience with Hadoop, Pig, and all those key/value stores out there is desired but not required. Also helps if you can bust out some C from time to time.

This guy has a cool job and tells good stories!

(I work for a different company in Memphis)

We offer low pay, no health insurance and we won't pay for your visa (its bad enough we have to pay for mine). Our work environment is bozo free, the code-base is not some gigantic mess (woo!), and we won't make you conform to some "big company" set of software engineering practices (we don't have time).

We are an NYC-based startup building a curation and machine-learning based product discovery engine, focused on the long tail of ecommerce. Our product is in live beta. We've got an experienced core team (see https://aprizi.com/static/about or take a look at our CEOs blog: http://giffconstable.com/)

If you are an NYC hacker interested in part-time work with the possibility of a full-time position down the track, someone who wants to get in early... get in touch! Internships are also a possibility for the right people. For more info contact liz@aprizi.com

Your first sentence reminded me of the famous mythical "Help Wanted" ad for Shackleton's voyage.

"Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success."


Austin, TX


Looking for interns and both entry-level and experienced engineers who love news and are comfortable at all levels of the web app stack. We use Django, but Django experience isn't a requirement, just a plus. You'd be joining a team that builds our main website and content management system, as well as nifty web apps that make government data more accessible to the public. The work is fulfilling for me, and hopefully it would be for you too.

Our team is tiny and the hacker/journalism field is still nascent, so the things you do are likely to get recognized within the field, and hopefully by the public as well. Since we're one of the bigger non-profit local/regional news organizations out there, people like to write about us, so that helps with getting recognition as well. If you do good work, it'll get noticed, which is nice.


Google is hiring for a lot of different jobs. Telecommute is difficult but we have offices in lots of places. See http://www.google.com/corporate/address.html for a list.

You know the problem with Google Hiring. I don't think Im actually smart enough or my resume isn't pumped enough to even consider looking at them...

To this day I find it funny that what is arguably the most successful web-centric company in history does not really like or support telecommuting. :)

Amusingly true!

San Francisco, CA, offices in the Sunset, very close to Golden Gate Park.

Craigslist is hiring i18n/l10n engineers.

We are looking for people who can code Perl (or can learn it, I am aware it's not as popular as it used to be), who has experience with localization/translation/globalization and who ideally speaks one or two foreign human languages.

Above average salary and very good perks: free organic food/coffee, dental/medical/vacations and laptop/phone and a very unusual, definitely non corporate company structure.

Telecommute is not possible, although most people work from home one or several days per week and we support flexible hours. pablo@craigslist.org

Scribd is hiring for a few different positions. As you have probably seen around HN, we are doing some pretty exciting things, and there are more in the works.

We work in ruby, but there is plenty of java, python, and other variety mixed in when it makes sense.

The engineering team is comprised of lots of HN readers who genuinely enjoy what they do and are driven to solve challenging problems. If you are interested, you can check out our jobs page or email me directly with any questions.


Bloomberg LP has a number of positions all over the world. We're hiring for our news, multimedia, and (most importantly) R&D departments. Good company to work for, great benefits: http://www.bloomberg.com/about/careers/

Chicago, IL (Downtown)

BrightTag, a growing venture backed start-up focused on the data management space, is hiring. We are looking for a talented sr. Java software engineer to help create a robust, highly available, high-volume web application. Our solution will be usable by millions of websites and we want someone who is comfortable dealing with massive scale.

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to be part of a small collaborative, user-focused team and want to solve interesting problems in a highly-intelligent, entrepreneurial environment.

Our management team has a proven track record of building brand name businesses with many successful exits. We are backed by a solid funding foundation and well-known investors including: Chicago venture capitalists JB Pritzker, Matt McCall and Silicon Valley-based venture firm Tomorrow Ventures.

We're based in downtown Chicago. We offer a casual work environment, some opportunity to work remotely, a competitive salary with healthcare/benefits and the rare opportunity to earn equity upside.

Please contact me directly. Please NO third party recruiters. Sorry, relocation is NOT available.

lokeefe [at] thebrighttag.com

Monetate is hiring - Conshohocken (Philly suburb). We're a SAAS provider of testing, targeting and personalization tools (i.e. segmentation, A/B testing, MVT) to internet retailers.

We've got existing high-volume customers. We're small, profitable, and we're growing fast. We're hiring engineering talent - we work with Javascript, Python, Django, Google Closure, MySQL, and all sorts of AWS in EC2.

We're looking for sharp engineers who are comfortable working across our stack and really want to be in a startup: http://www.ventureloop.com/firstroundcap/jobdetail.php?jobid... - we're only looking for local people for these roles at this point.

We're also hiring front-end engineers who want to help build and test experiments and are experienced in working with production-quality cross-browser HTML/CSS and Javascript without frameworks. We'll consider remote and telecommute for these positions.

We have fun problems at scale and we get instant feedback from our clients on everything we put out.

Feel free to email me tjanofsky monetate com.

BioWare Austin is still hiring web/PHP developers to help build the game/web integration for Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO. You need to be in Austin, TX, or willing to relocate yourself.

Imagine 1-2 million players feeding game events real-time into your web site from day one. There won't be any "grow slowly, scale gracefully" here. We need to be big out of the gate.

We've had something of a hard time finding people, so we're open to training up junior people, too. Never touched Drupal but are handy with PHP? Please do write.

The openings are here, under "Marketing:" http://www.bioware.com/bioware_info/jobs/austin_jobs/

They're contract jobs, so no relocation expenses are provided for, but they're a year long, so you wouldn't have to look for something new right away. It'd be 40 hours a week with potentially a lot of overtime (paid at time-and-a-half).

If you apply, please also email me (vmiliano at that domain name) with your resume so I can it in the hiring manager's hands.

Wow, that would be an amazing job. If it were more solid than 1 year of contract work, I might even be willing to relocate for it. What are the chances a job like this turns into a permanent position, assuming I worked hard and did a great job?

40-60+ hour weeks for a year isn't solid? Even if you weren't brought on full-time, all the Drupal shops in Austin can't fill their demand, so I don't think you'd have a hard time finding a job afterward. We're not just one of the biggest (and certainly the most dynamic) Drupal sites; we're a huge site, period. You'd have a lot of really valuable experience.

The work is ongoing (it's an MMO, after all), and plenty of features are scheduled for post-launch, but legally we can't even dangle a maybe-possible carrot.

That said, I was brought on from a year design contract, and we have four openings we're trying to fill.

Are you open to bartering? I'd trade a year's service for a pre-release of Jade Empire 2...

LOL i hope you're worth more than that...

Akaza Research LLC in Waltham, MA. We make open source software for clinical research. Feel free to contact me with questions, but also be sure to apply through the email at the bottom of the link:

Redwood Shores, CA / San Francisco, CA

(relocation available)

EA2D is a new studio of EA created to bring big-title games to the web. Our first game is still months from launch, so much of the work is greenfield projects. We have ~25 people now, and are hiring aggressively.

We're an autonomous group, so we have free reign over our tools and processes. This means we can go nuts with EC2, GitHub, Google Apps, continuous deployment, whatever we want -- all the while enjoying big-company perks like an on-site gym, food, Caltrain shuttle, and, of course, free games.

We're looking for extremely sharp engineers (Java, Flash, test, and operations), artists, marketing, and more. Don't worry too much about the exact job descriptions - if you're a badass developer, we'll find a place for you.

Here's the full list: http://www.ea2d.com/jobs/

Contact me directly, mikeb@ea2d.com

Esch-Sur-Alzette, Luxembourg, Europe.

We are searching at least 3 more developers in the fields of search & automatic content/site extraction, crawling, duplicate content, news/spam detection.

We do content fetching and aggregation (news,message boards, blogs, ...) for market research institutes, media analytics companies, etc...

We are still relative small (mostly Harvard, ETH Zurich, and TU Munich graduates), so you are still able to actively shape our company.

If you are from abroad, and want to experience a different culture for a few months/years (some even stayed here their entire life ;)) in a small french/german/english speaking country, why not join?

We can also offer internships for a few months (probably 6).


Just drop me (thibaut) a mail (or call) if you are interested or need more information!

Palo Alto, CA https://www.kaching.com/company/jobs

We're building a platform to connect individual investors to professional money managers (like a personalized mutual fund, without the massive fees). We're very focused on high quality code, tests, continuous deployment and more tests. We use JVM languages (Java, Scala, JRuby) and have a fantastic platform.

Right now we're specifically looking for someone with a strong engineering background to join the front end team. Check out our blog to get a feel for the company. http://eng.kaching.com/

As a student, I wish we had more "Who's looking for Interns" :)

In my experience, if they're hiring full-times, they'll at least consider hiring an intern if the right one comes along. Startups especially.

If some place is hiring, ask anyways, and remember to ask them to point you to other places if they're not hiring. They're likely to know others in the field that are.

The worst case is that they'll say no.

As a student, I tried to build out my Github profile. It worked to my advantage as now I am employed (on a contractual basis, but it's work nonetheless) because of my Github profile.

Once you have open source out there, finding work is easy. Maybe try freelancing? Some of your friends might need a website... You have to learn somehow, might as well be in the trenches.

Scribd is hiring interns, both for the summer and for during the school year. We have two interns now and it's working out great.
