Pittsburgh, PA (no remote) http://pikimal.com/jobs

We're looking for Semantic Web and Ruby Developers but if you're a strong developer who doesn't know Ruby yet that's no obstacle. We have extremely flexible hours, collaborative coder DNA, and we provide good tools, lunches, and great health care.

Pikimal is working to change how people use the web to make decisions. Once users tell us what's important to them, we can tell them what's best for them. Since all of our recommendations are based solely on facts, users receive results separate from marketing.

Please include a link to public code you've written or your Github repo when you apply. Feel free to reach out directly to my first name @pikimal.com

Pikimal is a great company to work for. At this point in my career, the opportunity to grow as a coder is super important to me, and I'm getting plenty of opportunity here.

Pavia, Italy/Zurich, Switzerland.

Global Earthquake Model Secretariat is hiring a Senior Software Engineer who is familiar with large scale computing, has serious Python chops, and some experience in open source development. GIS, numpy/scipy experience is a plus.


London, UK: Songkick (YC07) is looking for a Systems Engineer and an Agile Tester. In both cases we're looking for someone who can work on-site with the rest of our team.

See http://www.songkick.com/info/jobs for details, and contact joinsongkick@songkick.com if you're interested.

What the heck is an agile tester?

This is a pretty good description of what an agile tester is http://simpleprogrammer.com/2010/06/16/agile-testing-is-diff...

sm1 who follows agile devlopement methodolgy ??

More someone who can run testing in a way which fits well with agile development, rather than simply verifying functionality once development is largely complete.

In our case this means working closely with developers, product owners etc. early in the development cycle to ensure that acceptance criteria are fully explored and agreed on, helping the engineering team build automated acceptance tests, which we use to drive development, and exploratory testing throughout the development process.

Sorry if I came off snarky in my question. I def didn't mean it that way.

Your explanation makes some sense, but (IMO) engineering teams should just strive to have developers own the testing process, especially if you except it to be "agile" automated testing of the unit/functional/continuous integration variety. Is testing not something that developers should (collectively) own?

More finely granulated titles/roles = less agile.

I used to believe this until I actually worked in a team with dedicated testing staff. While it is entirely the responsibility of the developer to test changes and functionality to the best of their ability, testing is arguably a skillset in itself.

Our QA will test any new changes from every possible angle (will that work on all international sites? For all products? What if a user gets half way through that process, opens a new tab and changes to a different point in the flow, makes some changes, then comes back to the first tab and continues? What happens then?)

That and thorough regression testing mean that no matter how subtle any introduced bugs might be, QA will make sure that at the very least it won't effect sales (or whatever core business process is absolutely mission critical).

While in theory developers could do all of this, having staff that set out deliberately to break developers code creates a really good dynamic in the workplace. We mark stories as code complete and expect testers to come back with at least one round of bugs. A lot of the time we'll spot them just as or just before we commit, but the testers are good at digging down and finding edge cases that developers often miss.

London (UK) and Boston (US) - youDevise, Ltd.

We're a 60-person financial-software firm 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 successful candidates relocate to London or Boston. We relocated a HN reader from Denmark earlier this year for example. We sponsor London HN meetups and wouldn't mind doing so in Boston too.

Boston, MA

We're looking for a Rails (we use a lot of cool tech, like rails 3 and mongodb) and/or Android (wanna port our app over to scala?) guy to help us out. I'm the CTO of Zazu -- http://getzazu.com --, where we're building the Smartest Damn Alarm Clock (but we're so much more than that). Get in touch with me at marc@getzazu.com

We're based out of Boston, but you can work from anywhere.

Lemme rephrase something (comment edit window timed out):

The end goal of Zazu is to build Jarvis from Iron Man. We have delusions of grandeur, but we will not rest until it's done. The current iteration of the product is an Android application that replaces the built-in alarm clock with an alarm clock that we believe to be more intelligent: it pulls whatever information you find important -- like your RSS feeds, your calendar, your email, your twitter stream -- and reads that information to you using a Text-To-Speech engine.

We're working with a few big brands to create a new form of interactive marketing/advertising and we promise that we're only going to be providing relevant information to our users... so y'all won't be blasted with Colon Blow advertisements 1000x a day.

We're going to be leaving the morning space fairly soon, meaning we'll integrate with your calendar to let you know what you need to regarding where you are and where you need to be (both physically and metaphorically). We're trying to transform the moment of alert into a moment of informed decision making. We'll be looking at emails and other areas that involve alerting and decision making, too.

Mumbai, India. Only full time positions, on location

Looking to hire a) System Developers b) Software Developers c) Frontend Engineers d) Graphic/Web Designers

Technologies/languages used: Scala/Python/Cassandra/Tornado/Redis


I was surprised to see a huge ad on the page and thought it was spammy or high-schoolish.

You might want to remove that ad on the header atleast on the careers and the about us pages on your site. IMHO, it doesn't make a good first impression.

Got it. Fixed. Thanks for pointing out

The Amazon Web Services team is hiring for on-site positions in the US (Washington State and Virginia), Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Singapore, the UK, and South Africa (Cape Town).

More info at http://aws.amazon.com/jobs (tedious search-based UI) or http://media.amazonwebservices.com/jobs/all_aws_jobs.html (all 260 or so jobs on one page albeit with poor styling).

San Francisco, CA - Elation EMR

Telecommuting considered for the right candidate http://elationemr.com/

We're a small (there's only four of us!), angel-funded startup building revolutionary electronic tools for physicians. Our investors include Ron Conway, who recently named us one of his 12 startups to watch: http://techcrunch.com/2010/11/16/ron-conways-crystal-ball-12...

We're doing some really awesome things with a number of technologies.. Our stack includes Python/Django, MySQL, jQuery, Java. We'd like to add at least two more people to the development team in short-order (more details here: http://elationemr.com/jobs.html).

Please be in touch. We'd love to tell you more about what we're up to!

If you're in San Fran, I cannot recommend looking into this company highly enough. I interviewed with them and was thoroughly impressed, and would have taken the job but chickened out on moving away from NYC. That's good news for you. Don't be put off if you know nothing about the health industry or EMR -- it's an exceedingly interesting space once you learn about it.

They're backed by well-networked investors with solid records of success, the founders are extremely familiar with the health industry and have a solid plan to take it on (not to mention, EMR is about to explode and all current implementations of it are stone-age), and the problems you'd be working on are absolutely awesome. You'd be creating a highly sought after product that's poised to create a tremendous amount of value, both in the way patients and physicians interact, and as a profitable product.

If UI and Javascript are your specialty, then I can guarantee you that you won't find more interesting work, and if you do, it certainly will not have greater possible upside or impact on an industry.

Foursquare, New York, NY and San Francisco, CA: http://foursquare.com/jobs

iPhone, Android, Blackberry Developers

Engineering Interns

Developer Advocate

Foursquare encourages you to explore the world around you, discover new and interesting things, and have fun with your friends. We're changing the way people interact with the physical world, and we need your help to do it.

HQ is located in New York, but we recently opened an engineering office in San Francisco. We're hiring aggressively for both offices. There are currently only 4 people in the SF office, but we're looking to grow it to a full-fledged 10-person office in the next few months.

We're using Scala, Lift, and MongoDB on the back-end; jQuery and HTML5 on the front-end.

NYC and SF only at this time. We can help relocate you.

Learn more at http://foursquare.com/jobs

Please contact me at jorge@foursquare.com

London, UK: Smarkets Limited, a social gaming site, is looking for a front end developer (Websockets, Python, JS, CSS3 a bonus) and an Erlang developer to join our small tech team. yourlife@smarkets.com for more information.

New York City, 1010data


We're looking to fill a couple roles: Web Application Developer, Systems Developer, Infrastructure Engineer, and Data Analyst.

We're a 'big data' company and the problems we work on are pretty interesting. Among other reasons to be curious, our programmers all learn K. Contact jobs at 1010data (and mention HN).

The descriptions being .pdfs is a turn-off. I see no reason for them to be PDFs at at all either - they're just a logo and some text.

And very heavy, 3-pager tl;dr pdfs at that.

Forward Internet Group in London, UK: http://www.forward.co.uk

We're a young entrepreneurial company that bootstrapped its way from its founder bedroom to a 150-strong company with very healthy profits in 6 years without any external capital.

We are behind uswitch.com, getinvisiblehand.com, omio.com, justcages.co.uk, petvillas.co.uk, forward3d.co.uk etc.

You can take a look at who we are and what we do at http://www.forwardtechnology.co.uk.

One of our guys created statefulapp.com during the recent Rails Rumble (been on the frontpage of HN recently), many others contribute to open source.

We have been doubling our revenues every single year (up to £100m in 2010) and plan to continue to do it as long as possible. So, we need great people!

We're looking for great developers (and many other roles too) to work on a variety of exciting online projects. We use Clojure, Ruby, Hadoop, Node.js, Sinatra etc.

Above all we're looking for smart, ambitious, entrepreneurial people. Full job spec is here: http://www.forward.co.uk/careers or here: http://www.forwardtechnology.co.uk/

And it's fun to work here: you choose the hardware you want, you buy the books you need, the hours are flexible, no dress code, the people are reasonable and the entertainment budget is generous: for example the entire company hangs out in Las Vegas night clubs and casinos for 4 days every December (meet us all there next Thursday) and we've recently returned from Disneyland in Paris (birthday celebrations).

To find out more email me at evgeny.shadchnev@forward.co.uk with your CV.

p.s. sorry, all our devs are on-site, we don't hire remote devs. Also, given the recent changes to the immigration laws in the UK, it will be very challenging (maybe even impossible) for us to arrange a visa unless you're an EU national or already have a work permit.

Great office in Union Square in NYC, unlimited vacations, and other perks. Great office atmosphere - think "Dunder Mifflin."

Unlimited vacations? Can you elaborate?

Sure - we have no fixed vacation policy (apart from that fact that it's unlimited). It's purely based on mutual respect. If a team-member wants to take vacation, its up to him to be responsible and plan accordingly, make sure projects are finished etc. Of course, respect means that you shouldn't take 6 months off. But to date we've never had an issue and we've been doing this for two years and will be close to 20 people soon!

Sounds more like `holiday negotiable within reasonable limits'. But that's still good.

No remote

Not a position, but rather a note. In addition to specifying whether working remotely is accepted or not, it would be very useful to know which positions are open to foreign candidates (especially for US based companies).

I know for sure that some of the companies that posted positions below are open to international candidates, and some are not. It would be great if we could distinguish positions according to that criterion as well.

Monetate - Conshohocken, PA (Philly suburb)

Local only. Will relocate.

We're hiring at Monetate. We've hired great people from HN.

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 funded by First Round.

San Francisco, CA.

TechCrunch is. We're looking for an intermediate-level Rails developer to help us out on CrunchBase (the versioning complicates a seemingly simple product quite a bit). We are doing a back-end rework of the existing code base and this needs to be deployed soon. There are also interesting features that are planned after the deploy.

I reckon majority of your time will be spent working on CrunchBase. Since TC runs on the WP platform, some portion of your time would be spent on operational stuff as well (at least until we find a dedicated person for that). Additional PHP background could be put to good use here as both operational requirements/small new projects keep coming up from time to time.

We are understaffed currently (I'm the only in-house Rails Dev/Tech everything person) and we definitely need a smart, hands-on, motivated person.

Contact me directly (email in my bio).

Endgame Systems, Atlanta GA: http://endgames.us and http://www.iptrust.com

We are current hiring two types of developers:

* Python: Django, JavaScript, Cassandra, MySQL. We use Python all throughout our stack and in our big NoSQL backend systems.

* Visualization: we have petabytes of security related data, and presenting this in a sharp UI is challenging. We're looking to build with HTML 5, Protovis, Flash, and other related technologies.

Sadly no remote work is available right now, but our midtown Atlanta office is cool.

Please email me at mattculbreth AT gmail.com.

The company was founded back in late 2001 and is still privately held, but at this point we're very stable and successful.

The Echo Nest. Music data platform. We're looking for python people, data people, music people




https://rackspace.hua.hrsmart.com/ats/js_job_details.php?req... We are looking for a Sr. Python Developer who is interested in solving some of the most pressing problems in our industry such as how to scale the enormous demand for utility computing and how to fit that within the traditional business model of a managed IT offering. With cloud servers being the most basic building block for services that Rackspace will offer, our ability to deliver on features and scalability are paramount.

In addition to our primary goal of building our next generation cloud offering, we are building all the necessary tools and utilities to manage and sustain an ecosystem of users and developers of the Rackspace Cloud Servers platform. CloudFiles, Drizzle, Cassandra and other tools in development will be used. We are looking for passionate advocates of technology. We're looking for people who don't just use these these tools and services, but people that write them. It is one thing to start a virtual machine on a host, it is another to have the curiosity to read the source code and figure out how it all works. We are looking to balance the "been there, done that" with the "why can't we do it that way?" mentality of thinking. The ability to challenge assumptions and conventions is important.

We are encouraged to pursue our individual interests, with hackathons consisting of multiple days dedicated exclusively to work on personal projects or to pick up new skills. In one such hackathon our team members built a model car controlled remotely by an Android AI via Bluetooth, picked up a new language, created a browser based game with HTML5, modified git to improve the log interface, and tried out a new restaurant for lunch, all while finishing a release package. We also hold various after work activities ranging from a night of board games to jumping out of a plane.

(If you'll invest in us, we'll invest in you.) Also, we maintain a lot of mobile apps and are developing some new applications with Ruby on Rails. We're looking for people who at least have an interest in design patterns, unit testing, test-driven development, and Agile project management.

In addition to just running traditional big websites, projects focus on mobile websites, mobile apps, client-side awesomeness, SMS services, web analytics, reporting, automated testing, highly available systems, user experience, web services, data distribution, email marketing, search engine optimization and various administrative tools.

It's very rare to work more than 40 hours a week here. As a new team member, you'll get a brand-new iMac and a 24" second monitor. You can run whatever OS and IDE you like. Your meetings will be focused on collaboration rather than process. We focus on working software, not comprehensive documentation. We hire motivated individuals so we can give them the tools they need and trust them to get the job done. There are frequent technical training sessions. There are various user groups within the company that meet once a month and lunch is always provided. We also provide tuition reimbursement.

Call Andrew at (757) 739-0397.

Mountain View, CA

Awesomeness Reminders LLC

Our first product is still very profitable and I have some more curveballs in the pipeline. Looking for a technical cofounder. I'm technically competent (I code, fairly well, and can hack my way around pretty much anything) but looking for someone way stronger than me. You should be good with python, pylons, cogen, PHP, JavaScript, Linux, etc. You should be about 20-26 years old, good at math, looking to make a lot of money (I have specific targets), and not lost in delusions about "changing the world" and chasing VC funding. Products must have a clear monetization strategy from day 1. Looking to do some cool stuff combining nerdy genius with internet marketing. For the right person I'll fly you out to Mountain View, etc. Please "keep it real."

So -- blatant age discrimination, huh? That's... awesome, dude.

There's nothing illegal about age discrimination when choosing a cofounder, just as there isn't when choosing a friend.

I'm 23. I'm looking for a partner, not a W2 employee.

not a W2 employee.

I'd suggest one of the cofounder-wanted threads would be better, then, than a hiring thread.

That's cool. Still, it's better form to at least try to not to use language that smacks of category-based discrimination. Just stating your age, for example, will instantly repel anyone in the pushing-30-or-over set.

In the past I have attracted older people who want to partner, so although I welcome advice on form your feedback is flawed.
