1bios | Senior Software Engineer | Truckee/Lake Tahoe, CA | FULL-TIME, ONSITE or REMOTE | hello+hn@1bios.co

About 1bios:

We provide a health management platform for healthcare providers and health insurers. Our company is relatively young, and this position would get you in on the ground floor, positioning you to have real impact on our engineering decisions and company culture.

Our stack:

ruby, rails, javascript, typescript, react, mongo, postgres, thrift

What we are looking for:

Do you not only want to see a problem done, but see it done cleanly in a way that makes you proud? Do you appreciate elegance, but despise implicitness and magic? Is code and system design something you like to really think about before tackling a problem? Do you like to discuss architecture with other engineers who care deeply about the quality of their code? Do you wish you were writing in a statically typed functional programming language a la Haskell, but are also satisfied applying those same concepts to more wild west contexts like Ruby and JS? If this resonates with you, please get in touch!

Email us at hello+hn@1bios.co




Just FYI it's probably best not to mention highly desirable keywords like Haskell if you don't actually have that kind of work to offer.


If you want to use Haskell's statically typed functional programming, why would you use a dynamically typed scripting language? Do you even know what that sentence means? Do you realize that you would have to reinvent a whole typing system to go from dynamic to static, but going from static to dynamic is a trivial exercise? You might get better applicants if you have a tech-savvy member of your team write your advertisements. You are posting on HN, not reddit. Furthermore, how is JS a "wildwest concept?" The point of JS is to have a scripting language supported inside lots of larger programs like web browsers. It is ubiquitous.

Here I rewrote this for you: Do you wish you were writing in a statically typed functional programming language a la Haskell, but are also satisfied wasting your time? If this resonates with you, please get in touch!
