Ask HN: Freelancer? Seeking freelancers? (September 2011) http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2949790

Chicago, New York, San Francisco Bay Area

Matasano Security

Job Title: They look and before them is a pale horse, and its rider was named memory corruption, and hell followed close behind.

We're looking for people who can do Ruby. And C. And Python. And Java. And Scala. And asynchronous network code. And MySQL. And Redis. And C++. And MongoDB. And Riak. And Berkeley DB. And kernel drivers. And x86 assembly. And Objective C. And block ciphers. And digital signatures. And hash functions. And iOS development. And template metaprogramming. And ARM assembly. And MIPS assembly (yes really). And FIX protocol. And market order management systems. And Android systems programming. And Javascript. And Rails. And Django. And statistics. And linear algebra. And graph theory. And SAT solvers. And signal processing. And software radio. And soldering. And hardware debugging.

Knowing all that on day one would sure be nice, but it's enough for us that you (a) can code well in something and (b) want to do all that stuff.

We're looking for someone who could work at any of the largest or best software companies in the world, so we can work with them at all of the largest and best software companies in the world. Matasano Security is one of a small number of firms that specializes in software security. People contract us to beat the living shit out of their code before they ship it to customers. So a vindictive streak is helpful, but not required.

I wrote down everything I could think of about our hiring process here:


Full benefits. Market comp. Infinite free books from Amazon. Smart coworkers.

My contact information is in my profile.

This sounds like a dream job.

That said, no matter how much you stress that candidates don't need to master all these skills on day one, I can't help but feel overwhelmed by your requirements. I feel like people with the combination of skills you are looking for might be quite rare (expertise both in web development AND system programming AND security).

Case in hand: I'm a passionate developer with an expertise in Java web development / Javascript (who dabbled a little with Clojure / Scala). I love my craft and keep improving, but I haven't yet gotten around and/or felt the need to learn about Ruby / Python / Objective C / NOSQL and all the system / network programming (assembly, C, kernel drivers, hardware debugging...). Sure, I'd love to do all that stuff, and security fascinates me, but I feel like it'd take YEARS to learn and master all these skills (more if I also want to stay current with the JVM-related stuff).

Would Matasano have any use of a guy like me with expert-knowledge in a relatively specific field (web development and the JVM), but who wants to learn about all the other stuff? Or should I learn about these skills on the side and apply in a few years once I've improved my system programming and read K&R? ;)

Another example could be a python web-app developer who is interested in security, but never really did any systems programming.

[I wasn't sure whether I should comment on HN or send you an e-mail, but I think the answer might interest other people]

Good. If I thought it'd be clear enough, I'd say that the second most important qualification for a role her --- after "ability and enthusiasm with code" --- is being comfortable with being overwhelmed. A typical project in my field is just a few weeks long, with just a few teammates, where by the end of the engagement you need to be standing triumphantly in the smoking crater where a system that took anywhere from 1-8 years to build once stood.

We're not looking for someone who can recite chapter in verse from the GNU Radio documentation or write a compelling essay on category theory or even take the determinant of a 4x4 matrix. We just want people who are comfortable with the idea of becoming able to do those things. With, like, a day's notice. :)

You cannot possibly waste my time by emailing me. Even if we're not a great fit today, I can tell you more about my field and software security in general. Write me anytime.

Can I get confirmation that the Job Title will actually appear on the newly-hired's business card?

I do so affirm.

Would you put that title on your resume?

In a heartbeat.

Do you sponsor H1Bs?

Mountain View - Khan Academy (full-timers and interns welcome year-round)

Our mission is to provide a world-class education to anyone, anywhere. We already have millions of students learning every month, and we're growing quickly.

Our students answer over a million math exercise problems per day, all generated by our open source exercise generation framework (http://github.com/khan/khan-exercises, http://ejohn.org/blog/khan-exercise-rewrite/), and Sal's videos have been viewed over 74MM times.

Working for Khan Academy is one of the highest educational impact positions you can imagine.

We're hiring all types of devs -- mobile, frontend, backend, whatever you want to call yourself. Big plans ahead.


I'm in love with Khan Academy. I truly think it will be able to make a difference. My only concern is about the visa.

San Francisco, CA

SeatMe is hiring! We're a cozy 12 person startup in downtown San Francisco. We're revolutionizing the restaurant industry and we need your help! We're in search of:

  * Objective-C engineers for iPad development
  * Web developers (we're a Django shop)
How often do you get a chance to work at a tech startup where eating out can be written off as a tax-refundable business expense? Well not here, because our CEO would go to jail (and he's never going back to the big house), but we do work in an awesome intersection of technology and fine dining.

We offer a very competitive salary, benefits, moving costs and equity options for all full-time employees. H1B ok.

Apply online - http://www.seatme.com/jobs/

Lots of companies are hiring in Toronto. The Mantella companies are all pretty good: http://mantellavp.com/category/jobs/

And of course FreshBooks never stops hiring. I've heard they are also OK with contractors too: http://www.freshbooks.com/careers/

I've heard the Jet Cooper is hiring a front end dev (though they don't normally post jobs): http://www.jetcooper.com/

Then there is The Working Group: http://www.theworkinggroup.ca/

Nulayer is an awesome (funded) product company with hardcore ruby devs: http://nulayer.com/

Unspace is looking for more devs (that's where ragenwald works): http://unspace.ca/

Mozilla is hiring for their new, better-in-all-ways office, though you basically need to know someone that works there.

Durham NC (main office) - REMOTE full-time and contractors

Relevance, Inc.



We are Clojure/core (http://clojure.com).

Relevance has been voted as one of the Best Places to Work in the Triangle (Triangle Business Journal). We have a fantastic work environment that includes 20% Fridays (work on open source, giving back to the community, or internal projects), and a fantastic benefits package.

Relevance is increasingly a virtual company and have many remote full-time developers around the country. We're now opening up the project manager positions to being remote as well.

Come work with some of the best Ruby/Rails and Clojure developers on solving interesting, hard problems that make a difference.

Pune, India - we are looking for a general purpose developer who is smart and gets things done.

We are building a search engine/knowledge representation system for fashion.


The best way to describe working here is to describe my last month: I built a document classifier (based on max entropy), a backbone.js app, fixed bugs in django-tyrant-cache and started building a NoSQL database which supports color-based queries ("find all the items with color similar to #df3426" [1]). Your job will be to do similar things.

(If all that stuff sounds out of your league, it sounded out of mine too, until I got started.) We use javascript, python/django, hadoop, and haskell, though we really don't care if you've never touched any of those technologies.

Contact info is in my profile. Send a link to your github or other work you've done if you are interested. Here is our github: https://github.com/styloot

[1] We aren't jumping on a silly NoSQL bandwagon. It's very easy to compute l^p distances on RGB records in your favorite SQL database, but RGB doesn't map very well to human perception of color.

look into mongoDB's geospatial indexing, don't reinvent the wheel.

Mongodb spatial indexing is 2d ([x,y]), as far as I know, so that would only work if we didn't have any items with a blue channel (rgb(x,y,0)).

Regardless, that's all Euclidean. Human perception of color follows the CieLAB non-metric. (It's basically just a function of two variables, since it satisfies neither the triangle inequality nor symmetry.)

Interesting CieLAB (Never heard of it before,but just looking through it). Function of two variables, yeah that makes sense as neurologically we have found only two types of neural cells in the retina (rods and cones).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoreceptor_cell

FreeAgent (Edinburgh, UK), intrepid developers of online accounting happiness

We're looking for developers to join a team of smart, friendly people who dig that work/life balance.

Ruby/Rails Engineer http://www.freeagentcentral.com/company/jobs/rubyrails-engin...

Senior Platform Engineer http://www.freeagentcentral.com/company/jobs/senior-platform...

Accounting Engineer http://www.freeagentcentral.com/company/jobs/accounting-engi...

Ruby/Rails Support Engineer http://www.freeagentcentral.com/company/jobs/rubyrails-engin...

Email us at jobs@freeagentcentral.com. We're also open to remote working for exceptional candidates (there's a couple of us who are spread throughout the UK).

London (UK) and Boston (US). H1B

We're a 100-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.timgroup.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.

Note we recently changed our name from youDevise to TIMGroup but we're still the same folks!

The link to www.timgroup.com/careers seems to be broken, and the general career page of www.timgroup.com keeps throwing errors at me. The 'we're hiring' link at dev.youdevise.com is also broken...

I'd love to read more about the career opportunities, is there some other way to access them?

Argh, site attacked by name-change gremlins. Try our job adverts at StackOverflow - http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/employer/youDevise - while we say soothing words to the web server. Many apologies.

http://www.youdevise.com/careers is now working - I can't seem to edit the parent comment, so hope this helps those who are interested (or just email me - address in my profile).

As a former youDevise employee, I can't stress enough how great of a place it is to work.

Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Playtomic is casual gaming analytics and services. We're funded and ready to start scaling up our team.

Looking for .NET, Android and iOS developers.

If you want to work on a site that deals with a ridiculous volume of data generated by over 300,000 concurrent people playing the games we track (and that number's going to get a lot bigger this year!) then you're going to love this. We're using tons of C#, SQL Server, and a growing amount of MongoDB, and I'm open to using what you're best at if it works.

Android and iOS devs will be maintaining, further developing and supporting our APIs for those platforms, and should have completed a game or two. If you love making games you'll love working on Playtomic because it won't interfere too much.

Hi Ben, just out of curiosity, are you considering remote working? It's unusual to see a latin american company announcing jobs here in HN.

San Francisco, CA (H1B, INTERN no problem)

Scribd (social publishing, top 100 website, YC '06) is hiring talented hackers and other technical people for a broad range of technologies.

We've hired TWO people from these "Who is Hiring" threads ... it really works!!!

We're looking for people who want to work with:

* Ruby on Rails (we're the #2 largest rails site, after Twitter)

* Javascript

* iOS

* Machine Learning / Data mining kinds of problems

That said, we care way more about your personality and general hacking skills then what languages you've used so far, so if you haven't used these but want to break into mobile or web development, this could be a good opportunity for you.

We're well funded and have a really fun office environment (go-karts + a zipline!). We've got flexible hours, a very flat organizational structure that gives a lot of product ownership to engineers, and a really terrific team.

Last month we launched our first iPhone app, called "Float", which hopes to make reading a better experience. If you're a fan of reading apps like Instapaper and Reeder, you're already familiar with what we're doing. See http://tcrn.ch/pCwT4c for more.

Feel free to email me directly: jared@scribd.com


Is Twitter still "a rails site" at this point?

Los Angeles or Bay Area or Shanghai preferred, but remote work is possible for exceptional candidates. Full-time only. If you're interested in working remotely, you must live in the U.S. H1B is okay.

Factual aims to be the place where people meet to share, improve, and mash-up data. Our vision is to be an awesome and affordable data provider, so that big companies, startups, and developers can focus on innovation instead of data acquisition.

We have a terrific team that is still fairly small, and an incredible CEO (he was the co-founder of Applied Semantics, which was sold to Google and became AdSense). Last year we raised a Series A from Andreessen-Horowitz, and our customers and partners include Facebook, SimpleGeo, and Newsweek. We have lots of challenging problems to work on at all layers of the stack: data cleaning and canonicalization, deduping, storage, serving, APIs, etc. If you love data, Factual is the place to be.

We currently have about half a dozen job openings, from data engineering to software engineering to system administration. For the software engineering position, you would ideally know Java, Clojure, and/or Ruby, and you'll get bonus points for experience with machine learning, NoSQL, algorithms, infrastructure, and/or Hadoop.

If you're interested in the Bay Area office, it's just starting up, so you'd have a significant influence on the culture there.

Lexington/Boston/Cambridge, MA. Full time and summer internships.

I work at MIT Lincoln Laboratory (http://www.ll.mit.edu), a research and development center run by MIT that does work for the government. My group has about 20 people in it and does application security and reverse engineering. Knowledge of things like assembly, operating systems, and systems are pluses but not required.

* Awesome workplace culture. We're a 9-5 shop, you pick your laptop, and you can order any books that you need.

* We provide a lot of training. We send you to conferences, including Blackhat and Defcon. We also reimburse tuition at MIT. Last semester my office mate took operating systems with Robert Morris.

* We sponsor relocation and have multiple positions we want to fill immediately.

You do need to be a US citizen and you will have to get a security clearance. I'm happy to talk to you about how the clearance process works and answer any questions you have! If you're local I'll buy you a cup of coffee while we talk it over. You really can't waste my time.

Telepresence Robotics

Suitable Technologies is a startup working to create an innovative new product for something called "remote presence." (Another common term is "robotic telepresence.")

Our first product, in development now, is similar to video chat on a computer you can drive around. Unlike videoconferencing, you’re not stuck to a wall or desk. It becomes your physical presence, anywhere in the world, with the freedom to move and interact with people as if you were there. Our technology has already been seen by millions of people, and we think the potential impact is substantial.

We're looking for great engineers and designers. We need help in C++, multimedia, web frontend and backend, UI/UX design, electrical, networking, and more. We think this could be a unique opportunity for someone with experience in web or mobile to work on something a little different.

We have funding and offer competitive compensation.

San Francisco, CA - Yammer

Yammer is an awesome tech startup masquerading as an enterprise software vendor. We're building an enterprise social network (an internal communication and collaboration tool. Like Facebook.) and we need your help.

We build our product with insight and wisdom gained from the consumer social networking space, but we charge enterprise prices (and our customers pay them!) We're fighting some big serious competitors (Salesforce/Chatter, Jive, and VMWare/Socialcast) and this space has never been more exciting.

Yammer is really changing the way people get work done. We have actual challenges to overcome and we're doing our best to make a kick-ass product that makes our users happy.

Tech we use: Ruby/Rails, Scala, and JavaScript. We have Obj-C and C# stuff too.

Some bullet points for you to skim:

• Amazing group of smart engineers to work with. Really.

• We hack in Ruby/Rails, Scala/JVM, Javascript/JQuery/Node.js/Adobe AIR, Obj-C for iOS, and some MSFT/Sharepoint stuff.

• Competitive compensation. Enough said.

• Delicious catered lunch and dinner daily, with a 3PM snack cart. Also a fully-stocked beer-and-beverage fridge.

• Fancy Apple hardware of your choice (you can have a PC if you really want one.)

Some links for you to read more:

• Our jobs page: https://www.yammer.com/jobs

Really REMOTE. You don't even have to be in the USA.

deviantART (http://www.deviantart.com) wants developers. We're fully remote; there's no central office with a devteam located there. We expect all hires to be comfortable working in PHP, JavaScript, CSS, and SQL; we like our developers to be able to hack on any part of the site, rather than being frontend/backend specialists.

One exception to all that: there's an Infrastructure Engineer position which is located in Vancouver. It's C++/Java focused, and involves developing backend services used by the rest of the site.

We post information about our development process here sometimes: http://dt.deviantart.com/blog/ Apply here: http://deviantart.theresumator.com/apply?source=hn

Evanston, IL

Leapfrog Online is looking for a talented Chicago-area Python engineer to work in our Evanston office. Our Python engineers build and maintain high-traffic web sites using the Django web framework. We offer a great working atmosphere, a strong focus on work-life balance, and tremendous opportunities to learn new skills and technologies. We also have competitive salaries and benefits and close-knit teams who like what they do.

As we principally focus on the web, we look for real-world experience using Python application frameworks (such as Django) to build high-traffic web sites and applications. Experience with other languages is welcome. What are the extras we look for? Experience producing and consuming web services (SOAP, REST, XML-RPC); experience working with message-oriented systems (AMQP or other message, pub-sub and task queues such as Celery); deep knowledge of version control systems (especially Mercurial or Git); an interest in non-RDBMS data stores (CouchDB, MongoDB, Redis); knowing what it really means to develop RESTful applications; and, experience with functional and declarative programming models in addition to object-oriented development.

If you're a bright, self-motivated engineer who enjoys using open source software to solve interesting problems, you’re our kind of programmer, and we’d like to talk to you. You can apply on our site, where you'll also find full job descriptions and information about Leapfrog Online: http://www.leapfrogonline.com/who/careers/

Akamai Technologies is looking for software, QA, network and systems engineers in the following locations:

  Cambridge, MA, USA
  San Mateo, CA, USA
  Bangalore, India
We're also hiring for many other roles in these locations as well as many other places around the globe.

I've been working here for just over a year as a Sr. Software Engineer, and this is just a great place to work. The company is very technology driven, creativity is encouraged, and while we are very robust and careful in our practices and procedures, (especially operations and release management) I feel like developers and managers are given a lot of independence to make important technical decisions, which leads to giving us the ability to really make a difference with every thing we do. That's something special to have in a company of this size, IMO.

So, the careers page is here: http://www.akamai.com/careers

I know my group is looking for skilled SQA engineers, but company-wide we need everything from battle-hardened linux admins to C++ gurus, to Java/Perl/Python hackers and everything in between. My own group develops in Clojure. My co-worker is currently prototyping algorithms in Haskell.

Since I do get a referral bonus, don't forget to send them my name if you submit a resume!

San Francisco, CA. Full time.

I work at AdRoll (http://www.adroll.com), a rapidly growing, well-funded startup based in downtown San Francisco. We are adding to a small team of smart, driven and friendly people who are passionate about taking on new challenges. We are mainly a Python shop but we also work with Erlang and Java.

We are building the platform to bring the cutting edge of exchange advertising to the masses.

We've been on a rocket ship ride, and 2011 is looking even brighter.

Our infrastructure is currently hosted on EC2 across 3 regions and multiple availability zones in each region.

We come with all the good features of startups: full ownership of projects you feel passionate about, the laptop you want, a competitive set of benefits (medical/dental/vision, 401k, equity, paid time off, pool room, beer on tap, snacks and more), the need to solve new and interesting problems. We can sponsor relocation and even H1B if we love you.

We are looking for developers with: good experience and the ability to learn new things rapidly, love Open Source and take lots of initiative.

If you are awesome, you know ec2, hbase, hive, redis, cassandra, python, erlang and java it would be even better.

Social Tables (http://www.socialtables.com/), a DC/NYC- (I'm in dc but ready to move back to my hometown of nyc) based startup, is looking for a CTO. My co-founder had to leave because he couldn't quit his job (boooo). I went all in and quit mine a few months ago (freeeeeedommm!!).

Social Tables is a web-based seating chart designer for weddings and other events with assigned tables. We help event/wedding planners create floorplans and assign their guests seats. We're called Social Tables because we have a social feature that lets guests meet who they'll be sitting with beforehand. We have a tested product, over 1,000 users, brand awareness, and deep industry expertise. In other words, we know our stuff and people love our product (we save an event planner 4 hours per event). We've been self-funded to date and are currently talking to interested angels.

Like I said, I'm looking for a CTO (understanding of Rails is a must, love for SproutCore is a big plus). You should have that startup fire burning in your belly, ridiculous drive (e.g. you like some degree of risk), appreciation of test-based development, and passion for learning new things.

If you're at all interested or just want to shoot the shit, send me a quick note: dan@socialtables.com - I love meeting new people and helping others out.

JDownloader - Nuremberg (Bavaria), Germany - full time, lots of perks


Who you'll be a part of: We're the developers of JDownloader, the market leading download management tool with over 15 million happy users. On top of that, we work on client-side applications for some of the top 200 websites worldwide.

With only 3 people, we're still a relatively small, but highly motivated team with high aspirations, great opportunities and an extremly optimistic outlook on the future. Joining us, you'll have the opportunity to experience rapid growth right when it's happening while actively being a part of building and growing a big company.

What you'll do: As (Senior) Java Developer, you're in charge of diverse responsibilities and work on them either alone or in teams. You're responsible for parts of JDownloader, but on top of that will also have your own projects or products, for which you take the lead developer role.

Because we usually don't have strict deadlines or draconic specifications, we expect you to prioritize and get things done by yourself. You should feel cozy in your code, but also keep an eye on things like SEO strategy, project- and product management as well as user interface and experience. Your own ideas and innovations for projects, features or products are more than welcome and will actively be supported.

Send your resume, links to your current/past projects, github/social profiles (HN for example :)) or whatever you think we should know about you to e-mail@appwork. We're looking forward to working with you :)

4) Available to meetup in Kuala Lumpur or Penang occasionally for good times and durian (may involve actual meetings).

We're looking for a Python developer with experience in natural language processing. We're a text understanding research and consulting company, spun out from the MIT Media Lab.

Businesses accumulate large piles of disorganized text, from social media, surveys, knowledge bases, and customer feedback, and they want a computer system to quickly tell them what's in that text so they can make business decisions. We do that, with natural language processing tools that scan text for known meanings while learning new ones.

We work with open source projects. We use NLTK and NumPy a lot. We're in a nice co-working space with a mindblowing view of the Boston waterfront.

Send your resume to hiring@lumino.so. We also encourage you to send us a link to your GitHub, Bitbucket, or wherever you collaborate on code.

Winasaurus is looking for a designer for web and mobile. We are a 4-person startup (2 biz guys, 2 developers) who are making web and iPhone apps to help small local businesses reach out to customers.

We care first and foremost about katana-like elegance of functionality, and only secondarily about flash--but we're hoping you bring both.

We'll make the rest of the business model and tech stack work, though if you are interested in entrepreneurship or code we love teaching and building a kickass team together.

Let us know if you're interested, please include some portfolio action to: elliot@winasaurus.com

Fulltime Rails Dev

Careerimp is changing job searching, making it possible for jobseekers to gain insights into their application as they apply. Right now, we enable users to create a damn good resume with Resunate (resunate.com).

We code in Ruby on Rails and jQuery. We expect you to have a very strong foundation in programming and several projects behind you in developing web software. You should be someone who hates bugs to be found in your code, so you test it like crazy before deploying it. You are disciplined in development and can contribute in our transition to a more disciplined development culture. You like working with a designer to help style your features, and have a good eye for usability and aesthetics. You like to take skeletal user stories and flesh out the solution space. You think in graphs and algorithms, and are not afraid of complexity. You are bubbling with feature ideas.

There are a couple of major projects you will be working on with the team in the near future:

a) Developing an API for other apps to easily communicate with us b) Developing analytical tools for career centers c) Developing a utility for jobseekers to discover skills to improve d) Develop mechanisms to improve our matching engine e) Develop interesting social features that leverage social network APIs

We work in a designer space in Uptown Pittsburgh (between downtown and Oakland, across from South Side), which is co-inhabited by a giant poodle and other interesting tech companies. We like being co-located while working, and expect the same of you.

Friday afternoons you work on whatever you feel like. Seriously. We brew freshly ground single origin coffee at least twice a day. We will pay you comparable salary to companies our size, pay for half your health and dental insurance, and may provide you stock options.

Interested? Contact us at careers@careerimp.com

Los Gatos / San Francisco Bay Area Netflix

I'm hiring for my team (although there are a ton of other jobs too)

The description is a little light on programming, but it really is more programming than sysadmining.

Netflix is a very open environment -- any engineer can push code to production pretty much any time with almost nothing in the way. There is no release manager or schedule. Maintaining reliability in this environment is a fun challenge!

Our team has three main goals:

* Write tools to help the other engineers know when it is safe to deploy.

* Create monitoring tools to detect issues before users do, fix them automatically if possible, and if not, contact the right people as quickly as possible.

* Take charge of outages and lead the calls until they are resolved and then follow up to make sure the root cause has been found and fixed.

So if this sounds like something interesting to you, you can send your resume to me at jedberg@netflix.com, and if you have any questions about the job, feel free to comment here (but don't email for questions, because I'd rather answer them here were everyone can see the answer).

Here's a discussion about the job on reddit:


Here is the full job description from the jobs site:

Netflix is the world's leading streaming video service, and our growth is accelerating. At Netflix, we are upgrading our cloud management tools and pushing the limits of using cloud-based technology, powering our explosive (and soon to be international) growth while presenting new challenges to build a reliable service with ephemeral commodity hardware in an engineer friendly environment..

As a member of the Cloud Solutions team, you will manage, support and operate the company’s cloud environment. You will build tools to monitor, automatically fix and/or proactively notify service owners of problems before customers notice. You will drive incident resolution and follow through on finding root causes and getting them fixed.

You are an expert in distributed, highly concurrent, web-scale systems that are fault-tolerant and run 24x7 with unparalleled availability. You are a talented devops engineer and you thrive on managing and maintaining a reliable environment that others depend on.

You possess these qualities:

* You see the big picture delivering a 24x7 service

* You are effective working with multiple teams

* You have high standards in everything you do

* You can balance multiple tasks

You have these skills:

* Great communication skills, both verbal and written

* In-depth experience operating a 24x7 production environment

* Fluent in Linux: RedHat, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu

* Strong scripting and programming skills (we’re going to ask you to write code on the whiteboard)

* Familiar with the Java platform, especially JVM configuration and JMX

* Knowledgeable in Linux packaging tools: rpm, yum, dpkg, apt

* Ability to quickly triage problems, determine root cause and drive resolution

* Ability to keep a cool head under pressure and effectively participate in system down crisis situations

You may even have these skills:

* Expertise in one or more of the following: Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, shell

* Prior experience with Amazon EC2/S3 or other cloud service providers

* Building systems deployment and service management automation tools

* Familiarity with large scale systems and methodologies

If this sounds interesting then we want to hear from you!

Vancouver, BC, Canada. full post: https://www.matygo.com/careers

Matygo takes the traditional university classroom and explodes it across time, space, and social dimensions. We've reexamined the problems historically addressed by an LMS[1] and built a globally accessible free system for university instructors that makes learning more efficient, removes redundancies in teaching, builds social and content graphs, and has already gained traction internationally.

We're a small founding team (two, both technical, plus an HN-hired intern) with a huge ambition to revolutionize one of the largest and most important industries on earth. We are seeking a developer and a marketing communicator. These will be our key first hires and will be expected to lead teams in the near future.

By far, the most important qualification is culture fit.

See the story of William Kamkwanba from one of our first blog posts (http://blog.matygo.com/post/518849458/announcing-the-matygo-...) for our guiding philosophy.

Matygo is a GrowLab company (http://www.growlab.ca/), backed by top investors. We are still in the first quarter of the program - joining now means being able to go through most of the program including the trip to SF, Demo Day, Under the Radar conf, and meeting a ton of people.


- We play with fun tech: our backend is a custom framework in Scala and our web frontend is Sproutcore. We need someone who can rock them both: Javascript experience is essential, and Scala would be fantastic (but Java + some functional is sufficient).

- Very comfortable with all levels of the web stack. Can implement a feature front-to-back from our db (schema design, mysql) to the css and js that makes our app hum. Rest, http, and tcp understanding essential.

- Good software engineering skills including testing (e.g. unit vs. integration - when to use which?), system design, and agile techniques.


- Great communication skills: Will be responsible for everything from our A/B testing our landing page and social media to partner and customer engagement channels.

- Familiarity with lean startup and customer development approaches.

- Possess the ability, drive, and vision required to play a key part in developing and executing Matygo's user acquisition strategy. We go direct to instructors (and students, in the near future).

- Sales and presentation/public speaking experience would be fantastic.

For both positions:

- Creative. Bonus points for side hobbies like music, photography, design, or any other creative expression.

- Desire to work startup hours and understand the commitment, responsibility, and rewards that come with being a first employee of a high growth startup.

- See 'how to apply': https://www.matygo.com/careers


INTERN - looking for a PR/Marketing intern at http://feefighters.com

We're in Chicago, you don't have to be, though it would be preferred. We've had great luck hiring programming interns from HN and have already hired a social media/marketing intern. We could use a Public Relations intern too.

Here's the job description for the marketing intern that we already filled... We haven't written a PR intern description yet but it would be similar, but with more Public Relationsy stuff. http://feefighters.com/jobs/kickass-marketing-intern/

Press is a big part of what we do, for driving traffic to the site and SEO purposes. We have been able to get great press on our own (http://feefighters.com/press) and fired 2 different PR firms we were working with. Another aspect of PR is figuring out where we should be on the internet - responding in forums etc. Drop me a line if you're interested- email is in my profile.
