I'm really interested in London, UK but I'm sure one of these is overdue so feel free to let others know what else is out there.

A little format to the first couple of lines is always helpful. <Vague Job Title> - <City>, <Country>

And then a little bit describing the role and your startup/company.

Thanks in advance.

NYC (Chelsea) - Chicago - SFBay


Job title: Scary Story Told To Young Software Developers By Their Parents To Get Them To Go To Bed On Time.

In one not-too-atypical week last year, our team attacked the messaging front end of a financial exchange, used a GNU Radio to decode an RF protocol used by a major utility (we later cheated and used JTAG to turn their own hardware into a modem), reverse engineered and defeated a secure remote login protocol, and game-overed a web app your mom has heard of.

What are we looking for? Here's my first interview question: what is your research project going to be for us? One of our team members built a web testing tool. A couple more got together and wrote a cross-platform debugger in Ruby. One of our team members finds vulnerabilities in Google Chrome in his spare time. A few of them are running a large scale software fuzzing farm to bring mass production techniques to bugfinding. Does this stuff interest you? We should talk.

Downsides: Not building things people want. In fact, building things people fear and loathe. Also, not being able to wear silver, eat garlic, or enter houses without express invitation.

Perks: Infinite free tech books, medical, 401k.


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. - HN:patio11

Your Amazon policy is almost better than stock options and a 401k. I'd probably never willingly leave a company with that policy. - HN:SkyMarshall

For god's sake someone please get me out of here. - HN:wglb

Well, I don't recall saying that, but i did tell "First Blood" that "I'm not in here with you, you are in here with me".

But seriously, check us out. Do you enjoy drilling down to find out how things really work? Are you a puzzle kind of person? Do you think you can crack the pale apple? Perhaps you would like to work with "Cupcake", "One Ping Only", or maybe "Quiet, Redhead, Deadly". Tell Tom I told you to give him a call.

Another perk is you get a laptop loaded with stuff that would be illegal in some european countries. (Lots of it is open source, so relax).

And yes, First Blood totally got me with the swimming pool on the twelfth floor.

+1 for Matasano. They came to my employer and did major damage. Really bright and, equally importantly, really nice guys.

Just a reminder that there is also a spreadsheet.


I will update it from this post when/if i get free time over this weekend. Any help doing the same will be appreciated.

As always - Please indicate whether telecommuting is an option or you require employees be located in a specific city.

C/C++/Java/Erlang/Haskell/Python Devs - Chicago, USA

We're looking for smart people to help at an established high frequency trading shop. We have a few positions open, from latency critical stuff that must be done in C/C++/Haskell, to 'offline' data crunching which is more Java/Python/Erlang/etc. Plus a bunch of other stuff in everything in between.

Frankly, our code is probably faster and deals with 'bigger' data than anything else you've ever seen (and this was true for me, after having Top Secret clearance working on satellite defence and having interned at several 'big data' places in college).

If you're bored of working on the same 'solved' problems in webapp development as everyone else, you should check us out! We're organized into very small teams, that each have quite a bit of autonomy. It's very entrepreneurial, and you'll have a real dollars and cents impact on our bottom line very quickly.

We were Sequoia funded too, for whatever it's worth.

Shoot me an email/resume at {my_username}@allstontrading.com to learn more!

are you guys open to remote developers? we've got two erlang guys down here in Buenos Aires and we're looking for projects!

Sorry, local to chicago only

Are you hiring for any business, PM, etc. type positions?

Are you sure that there is no misunderstanding - critical stuff in Haskell and other stuff in Erlang? Not a reverse pair? ^_^

Latency is the keyword there: "Latency critical".

That is what Erlang was designed for. ^_^

Memory latency is a performance bottleneck for Haskell code because the execution model uses a lot of memory indirections.

Meshcapital is hiring. We are in Jersey City, NJ, about 6 minutes from lower manhattan via path train.

We are a 3 person hedge fund. We do high frequency trading, emphasizing market making and short term speculation in the long tail of equities markets. We are looking for good developers - no finance background is required.

Instructions on where to send your resume are contained in our application (you'll need to decrypt them first).


Solved it, knowing an old math concept helped, did a Google search and got the values [writing the code to loop through the values for m,n was easier but felt someone must have computed them and posted on web].

Just wrote the code for cipher and used all possible characters and replaced using the encrypted value. Though I nearly sent it to the wrong address since it wasn't clear whether address contained the answer it self or answer%256. took ~30 mins [mostly to look up ord,chr and the solution on google].

final solution 12 lines python code, does not calculates a,b,c just the cipher and i/o.

Yeah, I used the old math concept too for the first part, but got the values for a,b,c by hand. Remembering that math trick definitely made it easier. Fun to do a little math again.

Funny application. More of these kinds would be nice :)

What a fantastic way to differentiate your company. I had forgotten how much fun crypto is :)

I sent the problem to a few other friends (some of whom are actually looking for jobs!).

I have a truly marvelous demonstration of this proposition which this box is too small to contain.


Seriously, though - I think I can solve this in Wolfram Alpha (at least up to the point of getting the key).


Are you guys lagging behind in email? I emailed you guys, but never received a response back.

Also, when you get a chance please do post some solutions.

I solved the problem, but before doing the real work of updating my CV -- could you please write a little bit about the job, to avoid wasting time for us both? :-)

(And I know, it is not really a waste to update your CV.)

Edit: For instance, are Europeans and other aliens a possibility?

Edit 2: Thanks. But I've probably forgotten too much math. :-( And you should get enough people anyway, sounds like a cool place.

We have an automated trading system which plays the stock market and makes us a bunch of money. The job consists of extending the trading system, developing new strategies (note: strategy == code), and some maintenance work (making our FIX talk to their FIX, tax calculations, etc). You should be ready to be involved in all aspects of the company - specialization is for insects . Yesterday I did numerical optimization, today I'm trying to make trac work with apache.

Bug reports tend to start off very vague: "We haven't made any money this month on $SET_OF_SECURITIES" or "We seem to lose $BIGNUM in $SHORT_TIME several times a day, WTF!"

We don't much care about your experience with any particular technologies. We are a Java/Ruby shop, but my resume has neither Java nor Ruby written on it (I last used Java in college in 2001). We also aren't looking for managers (with 4 people management is irrelevant) or interface designers (we are all happy with the command line).

Aliens are cool, but you will need to move here (I'm the only USian here).

Java / Ruby is an odd choice for trading particularly HFT, everyone else I have seen seems to be using C++ / C.

Though its not as odd as compared to a quant [from a large bank which held an info session at my unive] who I met last week and told me that he uses VBA + Perl (for research not trading though).

So you didn't solve it?

I can email the code, if you insist. :-)

(I thought about what the job would mean and it's too long since I studied, I just don't have the math self confidence to go halfway around the planet for a job. To do the green card dance etc, I'd need to feel confident about job fit.)

Edit: Too late, will sleep now. I'll try to remember and check this if you answer, when I wake up.

I understand. How long did it take you to solve it?

Less than 40 lines total for the subproblems, including white space. Less than an hour (if you don't count checking email in the middle).

Would have been slightly faster if I had thought less and brute forced a bit more. A crazy old friend used to say "Don't underestimate brute force and ignorance"! :-)

I had about the same LoC for my ruby solution. Time was way longer because I had to read at least three wikipedia articles on various aspects of modulo arithmetic after I was so ashamed of my brute force solutions.

Wonder if anyone tried frequency analysis since that should work well on an affine transform...

I thought about that inverse modulo thing too, and then I remembered what Falken said...

I hope yummyfajitas posts some of the answers.

I though about a more elegant approach and then just brute-forced it too when I realized a brute-force solution wasn't really very expensive. cloc shows 7 lines of perl code for my part 1 solution and 22 lines for part two.

[edit] time for my part 1 solution was 7.8 seconds on an old Dell 2650

Totally different number of lines. Also Perl. 24 lines part 1 (OK, with some diagnosis printing) and 15 for part 2. (That includes use strict;/use warnings; and a few empty lines for both.)

For part 1, with 'time' got real 0m2.865s, user 0m2.780s on a T60 Lenovo/"IBM". I used a few minutes to think about the brute force, which probably saved me half the execution time.

In pure percentage of loss/earn, those minutes for three seconds was probably the worst business of my life... :-) You can take the C/C++ compiler from the old nerd, but you can't stop him from doing premature optimization. :-)

How many people have solved it so far?

So far I've received 11 emails, but 4 were some variant of "nice puzzle, happy where I am right now, but I'll write to you next time I'm looking for work."

A few more were "I solved the puzzle, but tell me more before I bother to update my resume." Such people are certainly in the right ballpark - if you jump into a puzzle without even thinking about whether you want the prize, that's a win.

Thanks. I wondered if the puzzle might encourage more responses in addition to filtering out the send-a-resume-to-everything ones. The puzzle differentiates you from most of the open positions.

It definitely did. I'm working on a blog post discussing this.

Are you replying to people? I sent in the answer on Friday but I haven't heard anything back. Now I'm worried I messed up somewhere. I don't see how though, all the math works out.

Product Engineers - Conshohocken - PA

Same as the last time around Monetate is hiring - Conshohocken (Philly suburb). We have hired people who found us here - these threads are great.

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 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.

I was hired by Tom after emailing him through a previous HN Who's Hiring thread. We had a couple of email exchanges followed by a phone and lunch interview. Working here has been fun and challenging.

I would certainly encourage anyone in the Philadelphia area to apply.

Where is PA?

Whether or not that's a joke I laughed out loud.


PA could be Palo Alto - except for the city name "Conshohocken." Which almost sounds like a verb - like something you might say after getting a parking ticket on University Ave. I can see "Conshohocken PA" generating a parser error.

Near NJ and DE.

and Ohio and West Virginia and New York...

You'll be a happier person not knowing.

Google told me it's the US postal code for the state of Pennsylvania.

Software Engineer @ Foursquare - New York, USA

We have a list of project ideas a mile long, and not enough engineers to get them done. Join us and help out! There are all sorts of things you could help us with. If you like working deep in the stack, you could help us scale our architecture to deal with our rapidly growing (30% a month) user base. If you're more passionate about things a bit closer to the surface, we're making huge improvements to the usability, look and feel of the website. If you're a little bit of both, help us bring our feature ideas (and your own!) off the whiteboard and into reality. We push new versions of the website and API multiple times a week, so it won't take long to get your work out in front of our millions of users.

Our ideal candidate will be comfortable in a fluid start-up environment and will bring an energetic, fun and creative approach to their work. You have experience building real products in the real world from the ground up. Your teammates see you as a programming rock star, and go to you with their toughest problems. You're comfortable jumping in the deep end, learning new skills on a bleeding edge platform (Scala, Lift, and MongoDB), and pushing out tons of high quality work fast.

This job will be based in our brand-new headquarters in the East Village of New York City. We offer a competitive compensation package including equity options for all employees.

Telecommuting is an option, but we would prefer local. (http://yfrog.com/n5rbuj local is fun! :P)

Affine Systems is a venture-backed startup looking for a Python programmer in San Francisco.

Our core technology is a suite of computer vision algorithms (e.g., face recognition) for analyzing video that we have developed over the past few years. We use our vision platform to ingest and scan videos from sites like Youtube and Metacafe that are available for advertising and sell data about the video contents to advertisers who use it to build and optimize their online video campaigns.

We are working with the major ad agencies and with several top brands. The reception to our service has been very enthusiastic because online video advertising is exploding and yet there are few tools available for advertisers to target their campaigns or even know what sorts of videos they are running against. This is especially a pain point for major brands because they are generally very sensitive about what sorts of content show up next to their ad.

We are looking for an engineer to take leadership on the (primarily Python) platform built around our (primarily C++) vision code. The platform runs on Debian Linux and other open source software and is responsible for:

* Ingesting videos and metadata from publishers

* Interfacing with the vision code to process the videos and receive the results

* Storing results in MySQL (or other data stores as appropriate)

* Distributing and coordinating the above on Amazon EC2

* Maintaining our API used by clients to query for video data

* Interacting with APIs of third-party partners as needed

This platform is the backbone of our company, so we are hoping to find someone dedicated to building solid code who can make solid technical decisions.

If this sounds exciting to you, please email me at bobby@affinesystems.com


Do you use OpenCV?

Yes, we do (as well as other open source video/ image processing libraries such as ffmpeg).

OpenCV is a large toolbox that contains solid implementations of many standard image processing and vision techniques. We use several of those as building blocks for our algorithms. It doesn't sense to reinvent the wheel for standard operations such as converting between color spaces or histogram equalization.

If I may ask, why python?

Ruby/Clojure/Lisp/Javascript - dev and PM - Durham, NC, Washington DC, and Columbus, OH areas

Relevance (http://thinkrelevance.com) is hiring. We are the guys behind Clojure/Core (http://clojure.com/). We do a lot of Ruby with and without Rails, we are doing at least two production Clojure apps right now (I'm having a hard time keeping track), and we've also done Java, .NET, C, or Javascript as the project dictates.

We have a fantastic culture, are small (~25 folks) but growing, and generally kick ass.

Email me at rob AT thinkrelevance.com. Tell me your github username, your HN username, and anything else I should know.

Developer, London, UK

youDevise, a small financial-software firm in London, England committed to learning and improvement as well as great web software, is hiring developers and other smart folks of many kinds. See http://www.youdevise.com/careers and https://dev.youdevise.com.

Web Engineer -- New York, NY


We're looking for a generalist web engineer who is super-hungry and sees building web apps as more than just a job. We're a data-driven web app that's trying to use analytics and exceptional UX to making buying event tickets a wholly better experience. #Python #PHP #MySQL #MongoDB #Javascript

Competitive comp, outstanding benefits, and a team that has a lot of fun together.

Only looking for folks in NYC. Drop us a line at jobs@seatgeek.com if you'd like to chat.

Dropcam, hiring SW engineers in Bay Area only (but we can help you relo). We make a wi-fi video/audio monitor with a cloud DVR so you never miss a moment. You can watch from the web, iPhone, iPad, Android, and soon on your TV. Currently our customers watch their homes, kids, pets, parents, businesses, vacation properties, and more.

Engineering is driven by a combination of features requested by our paying user base (all from suburban middle America) and holy-crap-how-do-we-scale-to-multi-Gbps-and-PB-of-storage.

We were recently covered on Good Morning America, we've also been reviewed on CNet, Engadget, Mashable, Techcrunch, TWiT, Anandtech and more.

Salaries + equity, and backed by great Silicon Valley investors. Email me at greg@dropcam.com if you'd kick ass at all of the following: camera firmware, our custom DVR servers, website, and mobile apps.

Developers - Newton (~Boston), USA (no telecommute, sorry)

TripAdvisor is a super popular website in the Boston area -- we recently became the most-visited travel site on the web with over a million unique visitors per day.

While we have huge traffic, happy users and are crazy profitable, we're not standing still: We just launched a cool Facebook Connect implementation lets you see where you friends have been and ask them for advice. It takes advantage on our existing Facebook app which has quietly collected of the BILLION pins our community has collectively placed into online maps -- odds are pretty good that we'll find you someone to ask.

Marketing ended up calling it "Trip Friends", and there's a lot of great press about it: http://www.google.com/search?tbs=nws%3A1&q=%22trip+frien...

The bit that's interesting to me is the careful (at least retroactively viewed) plan that led here.

We built this app on Facebook which allow people to put pins on their map. It was done in the fury of initial Facebook apps which were land grabs -- no real sense of what the data'd be used for, but with a sense that a footprint in that space would be valuable. Also it turns out that a with a finely tuned UI, people love to put pins on maps! It taps into some baseline lower-reptilian instinct, which explains our consistent 8 million monthly users.

Fast-forward about 3 years and we've got about a billion pins worth of data. Enough data that it's the single most painful table to deal with! And our CEO comes up with what to do with them: use them to identify which of your friends can help you plan your trip. As aside, TA is so profitable that we can worry about making your experience better rather than using sleazy tactics to just keep you on the site.

After about three months worth of work, our small team built a Facebook Connect implementation that taps into the data we've got in pins and ties it together into a clean UI that people love. It's simple, barely needs explanation, and just plains works.

If you're the sort of person who might want to be part of this sort of thing (large datasets, great UIs, big ideas, small teams), please drop me a line: sanj@tripadvisor.com

We're doing exactly what you're doing (check us out @ http://zuupy.com), minus the "we have tons of data on which to leverage" part. Launch that feature as a separate widget product, and we'll be direct competitors.

Great job on the feature, by the way. I've used it multiple times myself, so far so good.

Product Genius - New York, USA

Back-end Developer - New York, USA

Senior Full-stack Rails Developer - Hollywood, CA, USA

Music professionals are stuck with horribly archaic and kludgy ways of managing their music and collaborating. We're trying to fix this at Gobbler - building a downloadable, networked application that solves these problems for people who create and work with music. Think Dropbox + Yousendit + Source control - all tailored to work with multi-gigabyte music projects.

We're in closed Beta, but are getting ready for a public launch in the next 6 weeks. All of our work has been done on the downloadable application and the backend, so the actual website is pretty ugly (did I mention we're also looking for a Designer?). But we're using a lot of cool technologies, like MongoDB, Node.js, Redis, etc. And you get to work with a small team of very smart people. Plus, we're very well connected to the music industry - it's pretty amusing getting feedback directly from some of the biggest names in music.

Forgot to mention - the jobs website is http://www.mediagobbler.com/about/jobs

FreshBooks in Toronto, Ontario (no telecommute, sorry) is hiring a lot of positions:

  * Developer Community Manager

My email is in my contact info if you are looking for more information.

Information Retrieval Engineer - New York

Were urgently looking for engineers who have some background in information retrieval, lucene/solr etc. A senior role at venture backed startup opening up a new office in NYC so you would be part of an early team. We already have a product in the market and customers/revenue!

Lots of perks - good salary, equity, unlimited vacations etc.

More here: http://platform.newscred.com/jobs

Just out of interest: How does unlimited vacation work? I guess you can buy more days of holiday with your salary?

One or two jobs ago this sort of policy was explained to me as: "If you are getting your work done we don't care how much time you take off. If you are not getting your work done we also don't care how much time you take off"

Combined with perpetual crunch time, it has the potential to be an anti-perk (since then you won't ever get paid for those days).

Nope, you just take as much as you want/need. We dont put restrictions, but expect our team to be respectful and not abuse. As long as you work hard, you can play hard. The type of people we hire understand that and we have never had a problem in the past 2+ years.

Dropped you guys an email, but apologies for the dup sent to platform@.

Shameless plug - http://www.startupshiring.com/

Hope to have a whole bunch of new features out in the next week or two that will make the site even more useful!

Making it international might help.

I'm not sure if you have international positions, the zip code search means I can't even be sure that just entering London would work (I get 404's when I try with values that I think should work if it were international).

Thanks for the feedback. Expanding international is definitely in the road map. There are a few companies outside the US that are posted, but unfortunately the location search wont find them.

Site looks great, well done!

Posterous is hiring Rails Engineers and Infrastructure Engineers - San Francisco

We're a YC-funded startup that's working on posting the world's information. We're just 7 engineers and looking to hire people who love the consumer web, believe in simplicity, and want to work on a website that can be used by billions of people.

On the infrastructure side, we're growing to one of the largest Rails sites in the world. There's a ton we do every day to keep a complex environment humming since Posterous does so much (media transcode of video, audio, photos, autoposting to millions of sites, and more, geo, importing, embed expansion, etc). Every day is a new challenge.


We're open to telecommute but haven't done it before.

Flickr is hiring!

Specifically, we are looking for an amazing front-end developer with great mobile experience (iPhone, mobile browsers, etc.). We are located in the Financial District in San Francisco, CA.

Startup Software Engineer - Vancouver, Canada (remote development is fine)


Sokanu is a social learning platform aimed at helping individuals find their passion in life. The idea came about last year when I was finishing high school and I noticed that the majority of my classmates had no particular idea as to what they were going to do with the rest of their lives. Most people ended up taking generic courses at the same universities. Around the world, people struggle with the question, "what am I going to do with the rest of my life?".

So we decided to start a company with the focus of solving that problem. Our goal is to be the place on the Internet that people go to find the career that matches their passion.

We are looking for a C# developer to help us finish our alpha product (70% complete) and continue as the leading engineer to build the company into the future. Full job description available here: http://jobs.startupnorth.ca/job/startup-c-software-engineer-...

If you would like more info or would like to apply, please send an email to jobs@sokanu.com Thanks so much!

Austin, TX


Looking for an experienced web developer who loves news and is comfortable at all levels of the web app stack. (Interns would be nice, too.) 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 if you do good work, it'll get noticed, which is nice.

If you're interested, fill out the survey: http://trib.it/ttdevjob

I just took the survey, I hope I got all the answers correct!

Nasuni - Natick, MA

We're building the next-generation cloud storage gateway (virtual NAS) and have a rock solid, professional and experienced team, and an awesome product. We're located in Natick MA (just outside boston). We are looking for local (or desiring to become local) candidates, but all are free to apply.


* Inside Sales Representative

* Sales Engineer

* Maketing Coordinator

* Channel Manager

* Writer (this one is special (near and dear to me)): Nasuni is looking for a strong writer with the ability to craft drama from technicality. As part of the marketing team, it will be the writer’s task to communicate Nasuni’s vision, as well as general industry knowledge, to our target market. Candidates should be self-motivated individuals, with a passion for Information Technology, who can tell compelling stories.

I've met the Nasuni guys, and they have a product that I'm really excited about. If they can get something that is for consumers (rather than businesses), I will be a customer. They have exactly what I am looking for: a local cache of cloud storage that can be accessed at local net speeds and has the scale of the backing cloud storage.

* Improving our JS network transport layer that talks to the server gateways. Almost everything we do is asynchronous since we do IM and notifications (comet/async)

* Fast session and UI state transitions across page loads

* On the server side, we do a lot with couchDB too.

Back-end Ruby devs, front-end devs, full-stack devs - San Francisco, CA, USA

CrowdFlower is changing the way work gets done. We build a quality control system that distributes work to half a mlilion people around the world, and analyzes the results to guarantee the highest possible accuracy. We have a real business model, our revenues are growing, and we're venture-backed. We also have a sweet office in the Mission at 16th and Valencia. It's taco time—all the time.

We offer an array of excellent benefits: health insurance, new MacBook Pros, 30" monitors, free drinks and snacks, indoor bike parking, and flexible work hours. Also, we boast the biggest collection of office plants this side of the Mississippi.

Software Engineer - New York, USA

Patch.com is looking for both front- and back-end engineers. I'm one of the back-end devs there, and my job is so awesome that I'm posting this of my own volition.

We're a rails shop that's really proud of our engineering team. Some of the things we built are:

* Sunspot - outoftime.github.com/sunspot - The most popular Ruby interface to Solr/Lucene for full-text search

* Template Streaming - github.com/oggy/template_streaming - Progressive Rendering for rails (which may become part of core eventually)

* HTML Namespacing - github.com/adamh/html_namespacing - This is some craziness the likes of which I can't explain in a text area

* Record Filter - aub.github.com/record_filter - It's like Arel++ for rails 2.3

Patch is a hyperlocal news site, but we're different because we have physical editors that live in the same town, covering it daily. We recently had (2 weeks ago) a media blitz where we opened our 100th town. Since then we've hit 130, so we're growing _very_ quickly.

We're owned by Aol but we have our own place in SoHo, which means great lunch options!

Telecommuting isn't an option, sorry.

Entry-Level Developer - King of Prussia (~Philadelphia) - No Telecommuting.

ReminderMedia is a small company (~50 employees) that produces American Lifestyle magazine -- a marketing tool aimed at helping our customers build and maintain relationships with their clients.

We're currently in the process of moving our account interface to Zend Framework and will begin doing the same with our CRM in the near future. New feature development typically comes in the form of automating processes for the other departments.

Check out our latest job posting (http://www.remindermedia.com/careers/jr-software-developer-p...) or email me directly at jcampbell [at] remindermedia.com

Are you really finding it that hard to fill the position, or do you need more than one? Looking over your posts you mentioned looking for an entry-level dev about 300 days ago...

Curious whether this is an indication of scarcity of developers in the greater Philly area or not.

We've hired two in about the last 300 days and continue to look for more. Your question does make it clear that the copy in the job posting is weird. I'll get it updated with something that doesn't make it seem like we've had no luck for over a year.

In terms of the scarcity, to me it seems like there is but I've only done hiring in this area so I don't have anything to compare it to.

I am starting PHP Fog, which is a service like Heroku for PHP. We deploy and scale your PHP applications seamlessly in the cloud for you. You focus on development, we focus on deployment.

Ping me a lucas@phpfog.com for more information.

Why do you need a business co-founder and a technical co-founder? I guess I'm just wondering what your role in the company is?

I am looking for one or the other, I am doing both right now and am looking for someone who can offset one of them very well.

You should work out whether you are a better engineer or business person and search based on what's not covered.

EG: It would suck if you are a great engineer, and ended up with an ok engineer co-founder doing the engineering whilst leaving you with the business stuff (which might not be your forte). You could have had a better engineer (you) and a better business person (someone who is just business).

At a higher level, I wouldn't even look for a business orientated co-founder. Just get another developer, or if it's appropriate, someone who is more design and product focused. The business can take care of itself through advisors and just picking stuff up yourself.

Good luck!

Rails Guy (or Gal) with a Design Eye - Anywhere - FetLife.com


Here is the dillio for those who don't want to click on the link. :)


About FetLife In a very short time, FetLife has become the world’s most popular social network for kinky people. With over 540,000 members and over 150 million monthly pageviews, we’re only getting bigger, and fast.

FetLife is run by a bunch of geeks who just want to make a difference in this world by writing sexy code and designing intuitive interfaces. We thrive on making stuff that people love using. And we’re looking for people just like us to join our family.

If you want to work on a site that hundreds of thousands of people use religiously, and work with peers who take enormous pride in their work, there is probably no better family to join.

And it’s true, anyone can talk to the talk. But, we walk the walk. We contribute to open source. We speak at conferences. That’s just how we roll.

* http://fetlife.com/fetlife/open_source_projects * http://fetlife.com/fetlife/presentations

The 411 We are looking for someone to sit between, and complement, both James Golick (@jamesgolick) and I (@johnbaku) on the team. Someone whose sole focus would be to constantly improve FetLife. Own the vision with us and help us take features and improvements from paper all the way to implementation. Then once deployed, iterate over them because nothing is good enough for you.

Mad skillz needed You need to possess the following mad skills to join the FetLife family as an Rails Guy (or Gal) with a Design Eye:

* Ruby on Rails craftsman. Design patterns are your bitch. * HTML/CSS Standardista. Microformats, amirite? * Test-Driven zealot. You dream in RSpec. * Speaks fluent ruby. kinkster.virgin? ? “hey John!” : “John is so jealous!” * JQuery is your friend. Who needs any other. * Manager of One. We want a leader, not a yes man.

Bonus Points Bonus points goes to anyone who groks the following and/or has experience with:

* Open source contributor. We live and breathe OSS. * HTML Design Skillz. Put John to shame. * System Administration. rm -rf /

Take Note We are looking to only work with the bomb-diggity. Our peer. Someone who learns from us as much as we learn from them. Someone we’ll be proud to say is part of our family and who will play a large role in pushing FetLife forward. If you are not this person, please consider another position.

I am your homey, what next? Email us at jointhefamily+github@fetlife.com and tell us about yourself. Please make sure to include links to some of your best work. Warning, that John guy has a really weird sense of humour.
