We are a mobile app development studio with a very good reputation in London. http://www.fiplab.com/press.html
Our in-house apps are adding 1 million+ new users per month.
Salary + stock options.
Email: hello [at] fiplab . [com]
I am, in particular, interested in the following three profiles:
* You have a strong background in applied machine learning or statistical analysis.
* or, You have a strong background in data visualization.
* or, You are a fast hacker, and can deliver bug-free Python code very quickly.
If you don't fit one of these three profiles, but you kick ass, feel free to email me anyway.
The main quality I am looking for is that I can give you an underspecified problem, and you can run with it. If you have analysis paralysis and want to email me back and forth many times before you can make a decision, this is the wrong job for you.
Please email me at joseph at metaoptimize dot com.
We have some developers in the UK, but most of our guys are in Russia. The Russian guys have proved to be very very capable. We did not outsource to a company, but found people via forums and then recruited individually (initially) and then grew the team using the initial guys help.
We're looking for senior (team-lead) and regular developers. It's a PHP job, and we exclusively hire remote workers. We have about 16 developers at the moment, but we're expanding because we have a lot of projects on the back burner that we'd like to get started on. We won't be hiring you for any specific project; rather we'll be picking projects from the backlog once we have a sense for your strengths.
...unless you're a great search developer, in which case we'll hire you anyway and lock you in a small room where you will never do anything but improve our search. <3 <3 <3
I will warn you that, no matter how awesome you are, everyone we hire spends their first 90 days in the small-projects and bugfixes silo. We think that it's a great way to make sure that everyone knows the codebase, which is large and sprawling. After that point we start moving people onto project teams.
That codebase? It's 10 years old and written in PHP. This implies certain things. It predates proper object support in PHP, and almost every PHP framework. So we're running an in-house framework. Understand that you will have to deal with varying eras of code. Also understand that you may have to hold your nose and just fix a bug in an old component without taking the time to rewrite it to modern standards. :)
However! I see a lot of developers who would have a hard time fixing a bug / making a small change in an area which has a lot of legacy cruft present without going and rewriting the whole thing. Now, they are right that rewriting it is probably the best course of action from a codebase-health viewpoint... but it's not necessarily the actual best use of their time. If code is working then it's not an urgent priority that it get rewritten.
To be slightly trite, "perfect is the enemy of good."
That's why we'd like to get developers who are okay with the idea of working on a codebase that contains legacy code. And that's why I'm a little bit over the top about it.
What kind of working environment do you have that in a team of less than 25, a member of that team can be that far off-base?
Also I'm bad at estimating these things apparently. :P
They're also not the only company that has a "We're Hiring" post in each of these threads which strikes me as a good thing--assuming the term of employment for new developers is longer than a month. :)
Currently specifically looking for top systems engineers who can help build new cloud services, as per: http://beta.brightbox.com/
Must love open source, and preferably use WordPress or one of our products already. The vast majority of our codebase is PHP/MySQL, with smatterings of Erlang and Java for our XMPP and search stuff, and we serve billions of requests a day across our services.
We have a number of positions open, but the code and systems wrangler ones are probably most interesting to the HN audience. Let us know you found the job here.
We're a distributed team (China, London, Orlando, Philly, Phoenix, and Bay Area) so we're adept at working remotely.
Somewhere in the Bay Area preferred, but we'd also love to talk to you if you're located near any other large US city or technology hub (Seattle, Boulder, Austin, Chicago, Boston, NYC, Philly, etc).

I'm sure that Buffalo, Oklahoma is a fantastic place to live, but we prefer you be somewhere you can hang out with, learn from, and teach other geeks.
That said, if you're unbelievably awesome, hit me up anyway. We like smart people regardless of their location.
I don't buy this argument at all, as there are metro areas that will have worse connectivity than some rural areas within the US.
I also wonder what the real reason is.
Drop me a line if you're interested, my email address is in my profile.
Seems they always have such a posting, so I don't know if it's just not a current page or they have high turnover of admins.
That said, I'd also be interested in seeing other remote UNIX admin job postings.
It doesn't matter how young/old you are, where you live, or what college you went to. All we care about is whether you can deliver the Mathematica code we need to make this happen.
If want to help us revolutionize the textbook industry, please go to the elance page for this project, http://bit.ly/eUTmb8, and apply.
If you have any question about the project and the place you could play it, please email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are hq'd in Omaha, Nebraska, but are open to talent being anywhere.
If you are interested, email matt nimblelogic com with a subject of PV.
AppShopper is part of a small family of websites including MacRumors.com and TouchArcade.com. If you are interested, please contact me at email@example.com.
The code has gone through a couple iterations with varying enhancements, but we ultimately want to deal with an individual or small team that we can get timely responses and changes from (we are located in Texas).
If you are interested, go to this form and leave your name and an email we can contact you at.
I need some help on a couple side projects that are taking up too much time. My email is in my profile. Send me some info and your rate. Your location irrelevant, but I'm based in SF.

It helped that the company had a very Campfire-heavy culture, but I don't think the experience would have been too much better for either side if I had been onsite.
