This thread probably should have been posted tomorrow for the same reason it’s normally posted on the first weekday of the month and not the first day of the month ;)

Yikes! You're right of course. Let me think...

Edit: probably best to stop this one before it gets too far, then do it right tomorrow. I've edited the above. Nostra culpa and sorry to everyone who posted.

Spydermix | https://www.spydermix.org/ | Engineer | Full-Time | Remote

Interested in giving a giant middle finger to repressive regimes? Do you eat DHTs, blockchains & P2P routing algorithms for lunch? Are ridiculously hard problems your idea of fun? Are you the kind of person who could figure out how to create a uni-directional off-chain micro-payment channel with multi-sig support for a verifiable market with order matching and final settlement via smart contract, without trusted parties - taking into account the impossibility of fair exchange without a trusted third party, maybe based on probabilistic payments and/or zero knowledge contingent payments? Did you smile reading that last part? Good, it’s more fun when you have a sense of humor.

We’re working on changing the game with the backing of the world’s largest VPN service. An unstoppable multi-protocol decentralized onion routing system that is going to weave privacy into the very fabric of the Internet. Like TOR, if TOR was embedded into everything, had sensible economic incentive mechanisms, and was resistant to sybil attacks.

# Scale of initial deployment

Servers : 100K+ Traffic : Exabytes Users : Millions

# Things you probably already know in and out

IP networking, onion routing, VPNs, applied cryptography & blockchains at the protocol level.

# Things you’ll wonder when you read the prototype Apache module for fun

- Why don’t most HTTP proxies support keep-alives?

- Can you add a flag to the HTTP_PIPE contract to specify whether or not to use Global Session Support (GSS)?

- Is there a better way to track a single session across separate processes other than keeping track of session state in shared memory?

CityMunch | London, UK | ONSITE | salary + equity | http://citymun.ch/

Endjin| UK | Full-Time, Remote w. London meetings

Do you think you would like to come and explore what is happening in data, analytics and business transformation with us in 2018?

Are you the kind of person that just can't leave a question unanswered? Do you really want to know how things work, and share that knowledge with your team and the wider community? Do you understand how people and technology can come together to craft something special, each reshaping the other?

Endjin are hiring developers at all levels, from apprentices to seniors, to work on exciting projects with clients from all over the world, in verticals from retail to financial services, utilities and media.

We build modern data platforms in the cloud, and use them to help businesses adopt machine learning, data science, and automation.

We increase our value by using our products, blueprints and library of intellectual property, sharing the benefit with our clients and partners.

We also structure innovation programmes, process improvement, and DevSecOps, as well as delivering production-ready code, cloud infrastructure, and thought-leadership content.

We value life-long learning and an eye for quality. We will help you to find the best learning techniques, tools, and team-working, so that you can achieve your potential, and deliver the best value to our clients; while balancing your personal goals and home life.

Our employees have a mutual respect, regardless of where they are in their career. Ideas are developed by the whole team, from interns to seniors.

Equally, our clients pass the "nice to work for" test (and usually do so with flying colours). As part of that, we try to understand the ethical implications of the work we undertake. We seek to do the best we can for each other, for our profession, clients, and for the world at large.

With no external investors, endjin has been built as a sustainable, lifelong business: we are a company to retire out of, not exit at the expense of the employees.

You can work remotely from anywhere in the UK, and we hold meet-ups in London on a regular basis. You design your ideal working environment, and we will make it happen together.

Apart from a real passion for learning, you probably dream in data - how it can be represented, handled, secured and manipulated. A bit of maths improves your day. You know a couple of programming languages pretty well (we do a lot of C# and Typescript, but you may know R, or Python too). You love working with other people, but value the opportunity to spend time in your own head, thinking things through.

You can learn more about our projects at https://endjin.com, see a video about our career development pathways https://vimeo.com/200191869 or read our blog https://blogs.endjin.com

Koru Kids | London | Full-time Onsite | Full Stack Ruby Engineer #2 | https://www.korukids.co.uk/

Koru Kids is growing quickly. We’re on a mission to improve childcare in London, and looking for someone experienced, creative & friendly to join the team as our second full stack engineer.

We’re building a marketplace that enables families to find and share great quality nannies. To do this, we’re building great software for our families, supporting our matching team with critical tools that make complex matching problems a breeze, and using technology to supercharge our nanny recruitment and training processes.

We’re continuously improving our product, building key features that will move the needle in a big way.

This isn’t a sprint and there’s no project managers, we work closely with the rest of the business to make sure we deliver the most value to our customers.

Our stack uses Ruby for most of the backend, with Rails, PostgreSQL and Redis making up the majority of our core product. We use modern front end tooling, with ES6, React and Tachyons. When it comes to shipping code, we love GitHub code reviews and making CircleCI happy before anything gets into production. We mostly deploy to Heroku, with some heavy lifting on AWS. We favour feature flags over staging environments and deploy to production as often as we need to; deployment cycles shouldn’t get in the way of delivering value.

We are looking for quick learners who enjoy working with modern software development tools in the financial and capital markets space.

Knowledge of specific frameworks or libraries is less important than a broad knowledge of software development practices, and an ability to learn.

At the NYSE, we are building customer-facing web applications with tons of referential data and many downstream systems.

Must haves:

1. Significant experience developing web applications and web sites.

2. Very good grasp of Python 3.5+ or TypeScript. Both are a plus.

3. Some knowledge of the other language listed above. 4. Willingness to work with both ecosystems.

5. Relational database experience, ideally PostgreSQL.

6. An understanding of automated testing and when it’s an asset and when it’s a liability.

7. Clear, concise coding skills. Your code is more often described as "clean and elegant" than "clever."

8. A healthy amount of patience for firewall/infrastructure navigation. We use modern stacks and have access to most tools, but still operate in a regulated environment.

Nice to haves:

1. Understanding of formal methods

2. Bash and vi fu.

3. Mypy and static typing experience in Python

4. React experience.

5. Django experience.

6. Static typing experience in other languages: Java, C++

7. API design

8. Rust experience

Interested? Email me at silvio.gutierrez@nyse.com. Please put Hacker News in the subject line. Maybe even take a look at the shibboleths in the sub-comment below and try answering a few.

Shibboleths. Add these up and if you exceed five we’d love to hear from you:

- You understand meta programming python. What the type() function really does, and how it can be used. And when it should not be used.

- You understand discriminated unions, and how to use the type system to enforce exhaustive checks and other useful patterns.

- You can describe good and bad use cases for single page applications.

- You can describe why nullable types and a type system that enforces it are advantageous over type systems like Java’s.

- You can and have extracted declarative implementations out of imperative code. You know when it’s worth it and when it’s not.

- You know what the right time is to add unit tests to your code.

- You can describe a list comprehension, and have strong opinions regarding when and when not to use them.

- You know the benefits of generators and the yield statement.

- John is in many bands. We want to keep track of them. And we also want to track when he joined them. You know exactly how to model this in a relational store.

- You understand higher order functions, and sometimes secretly wish Python had more of them.

- You can describe ways in which lambda in Python is limited. And the reasoning - however flawed or not - behind it.

- You know when to use composition over inheritance.

- You understand the article “What Color is Your Function?” and can discuss it with us.

- You think comments are a last resort for documenting an algorithm.

- You can describe a pure function. Bonus: you can explain referential transparency. Even I can’t.

- You hate repeating yourself. DRY not WET.

- You understand the illusion of complexity and why simplicity is always better.

- You know the different types of automated testing there are, and when to use each.

- You have strong opinions on handling nested resources in REST and can espouse all the benefits of your take.

- You have strong opinions on handling versioning in REST and can espouse all the benefits of your take.

- You know what a shibboleth is.

BOOKING.COM ONSITE Full-time, relocation to Amsterdam/ or our Tel Aviv office, (H1B or its dutch equivalent anyway) is taken care of by the company. General Interview Process -> Hackerrank test, call with the recruiter, phone interview, onsite interviews

I work at Booking.com, which is a world leader in travel accommodations, as a backend developer. I have only positive things to say about working here. The people are intelligent and helpful, interesting problems to solve and the work hours are unbelievably sane. The company is strongly data driven and very dynamic, which was one of its biggest charms for me. Amsterdam is not a bad place to be either :) The Dutch government also gives a tax break through the 30% ruling to non-dutch people.

The work environment is very international and everybody speaks fluent English. The relocation process is also very finely tuned through years of experience of doing this. If you have any other questions about the company or the hiring process or you would like me to refer you, please feel free to send me an email at siddharthsarda01 at gmail.com (Email also in my profile at Hacker news).

Lazada eLogistics | Regional Head of Data | Singapore | Onsite | Full-time

See the full JD here: https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/516423939/

Apply by emailing your solution to the below screener to irene.ling@lazada.com. Please have “[your name] - Regional Head of Data - HN” as the subject line.

Here (http://i.imgur.com/ImdVZBI.png) is a simplified model of the systems used by a fictional online retailer. Their three systems track the flow of an order placed on their website, through their warehouse, and to the point of delivery. Each system uses its own database (MySQL for the shop, PostgreSQL for the warehouse, etc.). The systems communicate to each other via API calls (that are not shown here).

Please review the model and be prepared to discuss it with us. When we talk, we'll ask you how you would answer queries about this fictional business. These will be high-level questions and not deeply technical. We'll also want to hear your opinion of the model, its limitations, and how it could be improved.

1. Write a query to count the number of products across all orders received by the warehouse system today (the PostgreSQL database).

2. Given an order_id, how would you find its last GPS coordinates?

3. What do you think is the most serious problem among these systems, and why? (We are not looking for a specific answer, we want to know what you think is a problem.)

4. Why do you think this fictional company chose Redis for their delivery system, and is it a good choice?
