Please lead with the location of the position and include the keywords INTERN, REMOTE, or H1B if the corresponding sort of candidate is welcome. Feel free to post any job that may interest HN readers from executive assistant to machine learning expert to CTO.

Regular "Who's Hiring" posts state that posts should use these keywords and format which makes it easier to search for, say, internships in the UK.

[EDIT: use http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3537881 instead of this thread]

OT: Is there a reason not to wait for the whoishiring account to post this?

On topic: here is the post from whoIShiring


I don't know why whoever's behind this account is so desperate for karma.

It's the old-school trick - whoshiring - who's hiring rather than who is hiring.

It's not about karma, he has a throw away account. He just didn't know there was an official account for that.

Correct, and I didn't know if there was an official time-of-day for that (is there?) and I wanted to be in the first few minutes.

Sorry. I didn't know there was a dedicated role account for these.

What time of day is it usually posted?

TxVia is looking for several strong system administrators to help us grow our payments business. We're well funded and have a lot of big clients including some household names. Our primary office is in NYC but working in our satellite offices (Dublin, Barcelona, Manila) or remotely would be fine too.

We run everything on Linux, we run both virtualised and bare metal environments. We need someone with experience in multi tier network environments (IPS, IDS etc), general network maintenance and support. We're on a big push to automate things we should have a long time ago, so strong scripting skills are a huge plus, as is experience with using Nagios for monitoring. Our software stack is Java so JVM performance tuning and analysis is also desirable. We have lots of interesting problems.

Mail me directly for more details or with questions, colin@<company>.com

Fulltime Java Research Engineer - Outbrain, Boston, MA

As a research engineer you will contribute directly to the algorithms driving the best recommendations on the web. This position is special because we’ll work on longer term – and often harder – problems which require a focus on sophisticated machine learning capabilities and research.

We are looking for a smart engineer, with practical know-how, good work discipline, and willingness to learn and have fun.


Excellent Java implementation skills. Knowledge of scripting languages a plus (e.g. Python) Background in Machine Learning / Statistical Natural LanguageProcessing / Information Retrieval and an ability to bring algorithms to production Comfort with UNIX/Linux


Knewton: New York (NYC) funded startup seeking software engineers interested in functional programming, machine learning, distributed systems, and "big data" problems. +ONSITE, +REMOTE, +FULLTIME, +INTERN.

Investors include Peter Thiel (Founder's Fund), Reid Hoffman, and Pearson, a leader in educational publishing. We were recognized as a Technology Pioneer for 2011 by the World Economic Forum in Davos and one of the top 25 best places to work by Crain’s New York Business.

We have about 80 employees right now. We pay full market salaries plus stock options, and you can take as much vacation as you need. Hours are typically 40-50 per week.

Our product is an adaptive learning platform, which means we use machine learning and "big data" techniques to deliver an individualized education to each student. Our eventual goal is to make a high-quality, adaptive education available to everyone in the world. The product is used by Arizona State University right now, and we recently signed a deal with Pearson to power many of their products.

Our code is a mix of Python, Java, and Scala. Most of our existing code is in Python, but we're working to scale up in a major way, which involves a migration to the JVM. Currently this involves a mix of Java and Scala, but our long-term goal is to move toward Scala. Consequently, we're really hot for Scala talent right now. Anyone who has experience taking Scala into production we would love to talk to right now.

You can reach me at knerd83 at gmail.com, and I'm a software engineer so I'll be able to answer any of your technical questions (e.g. why we're interested in Scala). Reach out if any of the following interest you:

* Using technology to democratize education.

* Machine learning and data mining, including approaches such as probablistic graphic models (PGMs), Support Vector Machines (SVMs) and Monte Carlo Markov Chains.

* Functional programming (cf. Scala and Python).

* The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) internals and performance optimization.

* NoSQL databases (Cassandra and Redis).

* Thrift (the RPC protocol).

* Cloud computing (Amazon Web Services, Unix) and distributed systems.

FULLTIME Android Developer - Brighton, UK

About Us

We’re a group of designers, developers and general tech tinkerers who have come together to make future interfaces simpler and more helpful. We’re based by the sea down in Brighton, work with Tesco, Google, Intel, Swiftkey & others and we’ve been around for some 5 years now.

Oh, and we’ve just been voted one of the Top 50 Innovators in mobile by Mobile Entertainment, and nominated for Agency Of The Year 2011 by .Net mag.

Job Description

From day one, you’ll be writing code for our own radical in-house products and for high-profile, star-studded client projects. Along with designing and planning with fellow droids, you’ll have the ability to collaborate with designers to realise awesome experiences.

If you’re a London-based developer you should seriously consider quitting the smog and joining us! Hell, if you live anywhere outside of Brighton, you should consider making the move. On top of fresh sea air and a chilled beachy lifestyle, we offer a highly competitive salary. It’s worth thinking about.

Your skillset

We’re looking for someone with strong Android skills, specifically:

  • Strong Android codebase brain
  • Android ROMing (You’re able to build ROMs *almost* effortlessly)
  • Very good Java skills
  • Custom Views (canvas, bitmaps and graphics)
  • Content resolvers (contacts, messages etc)
  • Data storage
…and you’ll need some more general skills too! As with the other ribots, you’ll need a brain like a swiss army knife:

  • UX basics
  • Source control (git)
  • Comfortable with command line
  • Unit testing (Android-specific, preferably)
  • CI
  • Able to move across languages with ease
  • Agile experience
How to Apply

Firstly, take a look at this; it's a sweet little presentation that will tell you more about who we are and what we're looking for (it includes a couple of repeated points, but there's plenty new stuff too): http://www.slideshare.net/ribot/are-...g-for-11064841

If after reviewing the presentation you think you're the droid we're looking for, please send your calculated responses to: jobs@ribot.co.uk

You'll geek out on making your code and interfaces run smoothly across a wide range of devices with varying browsers, form factors, processors and input mechanisms.

You'll ensure your code is well-documented, tested and follows team code standards, priding yourself on its quality, robustness and readability.

Speaking of team, you'll be working with design-types, other web-devs and a few other heavy-duty geeks: planning, sketching, collaboration and code reviews form an important part of the role so flexibility and communication are paramount.

And you'll take part in normal Agile ceremonies including sprint planning sessions, sprint reviews, and daily standups.

Skills Range

We’re looking for someone with strong web-dev skills:

  •	Handcode *real* Javascript
  •	Build with popular frameworks (jQuery, zepto, Backbone...)
  •	Have meaningful discussions about design patterns
  •	Use 'cool-kid' technologies (HTML5, CSS3, Node, web workers...)
  •	Show skills in a backend language or two (Ruby, Python...)
  •	Automate your tests (Hudson, Jasmine, Selenium...)
  •	Show experience developing across platforms
...and you’ll need some more general skills too! As with the other ribots, you’ll need a brain like a swiss army knife:

  •	Play well with other developers
  •	Have real conversations with designer types
  •	Be agile, be responsive
  •	A desire to constantly learn and experiment
How to apply

If you think you're the wondrous web-dev we're looking for, send a covering letter with a collection of links to your work to: jobs@ribot.co.uk
