Ask HN: Who's Hiring? (March 2011 Edition)
80 points by meadhikari on Feb 28, 2011 | hide | past | favorite | 32 comments
As many have been posting about new beginnings and starting afresh, it's time for another Hiring thread.

Boston (US) as well as London (UK) - youDevise, Ltd.

We're a 65-person financial-software firm committed to learning and improvement as well as great web software and agile development. Some of you may know us from our sponsorship of Hacker News meetups in London. We're hiring developers and other smart folks of many kinds. See https://dev.youdevise.com and http://www.youdevise.com/careers.

While we don't have remote workers, we do help successful candidates relocate to London or Boston including arranging visas where needed. For example, last year we hired HN readers from Denmark and the US, and we moved a Polish employee to Boston.

Sounds interesting! Would it be possible to contact you with some questions via email?

BuzzGenie - Los Gatos - Remote is OK, but must be able to attend on site brainstorming and status meetings near Hwys 17 & 85.

BuzzGenie is a social network/news/blog/action Internet portal. We address an individual's need to not only voice their opinions, but to make a difference, enabling them to discuss and blog interests and act on causes, issues, events, topics, and persons of interest while keeping their identity private to the Internet at large. BuzzGenie combines the best features of Facebook, Huffington Post, WordPress, Yelp, and Twitter by integrating the friends feature; recent activity feeds; interest-based news feeds, blogs, and Tweets; and connecting people using an interest-based social graph. We have a solid revenue model which gets us to profitability in about two years.

Looking for LAMP and mobile developers, as well as Unix/Plesk admin.

Also looking for activists-bloggers.

You will play a key role on a very small team. Since we are at very early stage, you can become a major player in a company that wants to change and improve the way people interact on the things they care about. This is a very hot, competitive space with a potentially huge payout for the team first to get traction in the market. Great achievers will be rewarded accordingly.

Benefits of working on site has the additional benefit of three free gourmet meals a day (including Indian/vegetarian), an outdoor patio work area, hot tub, home gym, and unlimited gourmet espresso/cappuccino/coffee (it's a private residence). Imagine upscale 'garage' start-up. Walking distance to park with basketball, tennis courts, running track, and par course. Across Bascom Ave. from Los Gatos Creek trail for walking, running, roller blading, and biking.

Have a look at the site and see if it interests you. Helps to have some activist in your blood.

Compensation is accomplishment based until funding is closed. Founder's stock available.

Cambridge, MA (AO Games)

We’re an online retail/games startup based in Cambridge, MA looking for someone to fill a full-time position as a Lead Developer of web applications.

We compensate very well, paying market rates or above for real talent. You may choose to substitute some equity for salary, but that is not mandatory. A remote working option is available at the start, though in the long term the job is at Cambridge, MA.

We are looking for someone who:

- Has experience building complex web apps (think Facebook).

- Has experience / enjoys the challenge of optimizing complex, time sensitive, applications.

- Has some familiarity with PHP in LAMP (though PHP doesn't need to be your favorite language; I'm looking at you Python/RoR evangelists!)

- System / Database administration familiarity is a plus, since this will be helpful for optimization.

A little about us: we are a small startup that is highly profitable. We bootstrapped our way to profitability by using minimum money and time (8 months). We are expanding to take on larger challenges and need a great programmer to work with us.

CellDivision - New York City - Local only, no remote

We are an established company - not a startup and not your traditional type of agency you would normally see on here - basically we work in the pharmaceutical/medinfo sector. Just because our standard business is old school - the technologies we use aren't.

We are a PHP shop, but make heavy use of MongoDB, Node.js, RabbitMQ, Solr, Haxe and any other technologies that are the new cool thing - but that also are indeed the right tool for the job. Other cool things we are playing with include the Kinect and RFID technology.

We are looking for a full time senior PHP developer. You need to be comfortable using our in-house framework and be quick on your toes in coming up with ideas. Ideas are welcome - but be ready to execute on them as well.

Send your resume, or any questions you might have to carlson at celldivision com

We also use some amazon services {s3,rds,sdb} and have a fairly deep integration with facebook platform.

UX: prototype or jquery with a dash of design sensibility & a knack for user flows. This could be remote or part-time, but we prefer SF-based and are ultimately looking to fill a lead design role.
